5 new albums you need to hear – February & March 2015

Here’s a list of my favourite albums from february and march 2015 with no specific order.

1. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds“Chasing Yesterday”

Schermata 2015-02-15 a 14.23.21Label: Sour Mash Ltd
Country: United Kingdom
Genre: Alternative Rock
Lenght: 43:52 (10 tracks)

Noel Gallagher is back with his second solo album after the success of the first one. Some mighty say this is the best album he’s ever written since the 90s. Riverman, The Dying of the Light, Lock All the Doors are classic Noel’s great songs.

2. Wand – “Golem”

Label: In the Red Records
Country: USA
Genre: Neo-Psych
Lenght: 36 mins. (9 tracks)

These guys are amazing, seriously. On this record you will find heavy guitars, Tame Impala’s inspired vocals, beautiful melodies (“Melted Rope”), “psychedelia” and a little bit of electronic too. Highly recommended.

3. Circa Waves – “Young Chasers”

Label: Virgin EMI Records
United Kingdom
Genre: Indie Rock
Lenght: 39 mins (13 tracks)

Pure fu****g Indie Rock right here. The highly attended debut from the Liverpool band charted at #10 last week. Big choruses, guitars, happiness and lightheartedness. No tricks nor big production, just a gang of guys playing some songs like the old days. That’s what you’re going to get on this record. Best songs: “T-Shirt Weather”, “Young Chasers”, “Stuck In My Teeth”, and “Fossils”.

4. Mini Mansions – “The Great Pretenders”

Label: Electromagnetic Records
Country: USA
Genre: Indie Pop/Electronic
Lenght: 45:58 (11 tracks)

This is the project of Michael Shuman, best known for playing bass with Queens of the Stone Age. “The Great Pretenders” features Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) as well as Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys). The Beatles’ inspired melodies and vocals fit pretty well with the sprinkles of electronic. Enough said.

5. Public Service Broadcasting – “The Race for Space”

Label: Test Card Recordings
Country: United Kingdom
Genre: Alternative Rock/Electronic

First of all, Public Service Broadcasting are unique. This new album relives the story of the american and soviet space race (1957-1972). No lyrics, enjoy the space shuttle launch.
