King Daniel: Yellow

King Daniel is one of the brighter stars to emerge from the K Pop Scene in the last couple of years. His latest EP, Yellow, is fantastic and well worth the purchase. "Antidote" is the stand-out track from the release.

Twenty One Pilots: Scaled and Icy (Album of the Week)

Twenty-One Pilots have happily jumped on the late 70s, early 80s AM Radio musical style bandwagon and I'm so very happy they did. Their signature sound is still present, of course, but just with this added layer. 

The first track sets it all up.

Then we really dive deep into AM Gold.

This is just a record full of classic pop, folks. And it's amazing!

Waterparks: Greatest Hits

Houston's own Waterparks has released an album called Greatest Hits. In a very cool twist, this is not a compilation of their first three records. Instead, it's just a great 21st Century pop album that delivers on its title. 

Here is one of the many amazing tracks...

Billie Marten: Flora and Fauna

Ripon's own Billie Marten has just released her third record and it shows some real growth for the artist. Wispy pop numbers combined with 90's drone make Flora and Fauna a great choice for summer listening.

Gruff Rhys: Seeking New Gods

Bethesda, Wales' own Gruff Rhys with his seventh long-player and he continues to amaze me. I've been a fan of this artist since his Super Furry Animals days and his latest, Seeking New Gods, is yet another example of his dragon-level awesomeness. 

Here is an example of what to expect...

So so good!

Matt Berry: The Blue Elephant (Album of the Week), Summer Sun (Song of the Summer 2021)

Bromham, Bedfordshire's own Matt Berry has just released what may very well be the Album of the Year. The Blue Elephant is certainly the Album of the Summer with its sun-soaked melodies and mind-expanding sonic waves of warmth. 

Every 60s band you have ever loved is heard on this fabulous record. Here is the official Song of the Summer for 2021.

Here is a track that sounds like it's from a lost Doors record.

Folks, it doesn't get much better than this!
