52 Issue 87 / 2016 INDIE Damon Albarn lost his computer with a lots of records for the new album... The Blur Frontman have his habits, like taking the London Black Cabs everyday. This time, just after had released 2 more records for the Gorillaz new album annouced few months ago, he let one of his friends order their taxi. Sadly, it was not the famous retro company which was called. The friend had choosen a more modern company, and that's how Damon Albarn never saw his computer anymore, He had reported that it would never happen with the Black Cabs because he used to always forget something on the cars and get it back. Not saying that the modern companies have to be reconciderate because we all love it, but you should be more careful the next time you'll pick one... NEWS: NEW GORILLAZ ALBUM STILL LOST IN NATURE ALBUM OF THE MONTH: AYE! We love the new Grawl!x video for 'Kumquat', which has only just been released in anticipation of his next album, out May 28. The album, Aye!, is the last of a trilogy which explores the five stages of grief according to the Kubler-Ross model. Aye! Explores the final stage, acceptance. Judging by Kumquat, the first release from the album, the rest of the record will be appropriately deep and emotive, with gorgeous layers of guitar arrangements and skittering drums. 'Kumquat' is an excellent piece of psych- pop, demonstrating Grawl!x's ability to stand against giants like Animal Collective and Toro Y Moi. Grawl!x will be touring in June. TRACK OF THE MONTH: LAND LOVERS - SPRINGTIME FOR THE MYSTICS Dubliners Land Lovers bring their third LP and its shaping up to be big Land Lovers are a Dublin band making guitar music with leftfield, alt rock influences like New Order and Future Islands. Their new album, The Rooks Have Returned, is out May 16 on Popical Island, a label founded by members of Land Lovers. Our indie track of the week is the lead single from The Rooks Have Returned, 'Springtime for the Mystics', which builds on what the band have done in the past, sounding like Pulp in the 00s or northern, melancholic indie.
