Philly punks Nothing are back from the brink with a new record that draws on some really, really bad times.
Album review: Herve
Herve so many aliases that he has been able to form a one-man label, Cheap Thrills.
Twenty of the 36 tracks on ‘Ghetto Bass’ are big-bass Herve reworkings of songs by other artists, including Bloc Party, David Byrne and Benga.
Herve’s real name is Joshua Harvey – Herve is the French form of his surname.
Electro spods decided to ignore the revelation that ‘fidget house’ was a DJ in-joke and ran with it anyway, coining another daft sub-genre that alludes to wild eclecticism. Unwittingly, Hervé has been sworn in as king of this chiefdom thanks to his bass-hefty energy flash, allied with snatches of baille funk, Gallic disco and dubstep. But if holding on to a wonky template only slightly more cerebral than a chat with The Pigeon Detectives is ‘fidgety’, then parents need a new adjective. Chris Parkin
The Strokes dabble with sounds from throughout their career on a satisfying return
Once the thrill of the cast and visuals wears off, this follow-up to Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland is a drag
George Clooney and Julia Roberts bounce off each other like pros in this amusing take on fat cat greed
The hooks are plentiful and the energy’s palpable, but the Bottlemen still don’t have a ‘Wonderwall’
