FLW Playlist

Go Man Go
 

Go Man Go

The Bullets (Western Star)

There was only ever going to be one winner and that honour is bestowed to The Bullets. ‘Go Man Go’ is energetic rock ‘n’ roll with serious bite that matches its predecessor every inch of the way.

Bahamas Is Afie
 

Bahamas Is Afie

Bahamas (Brushfire Records / Universal Music)

Going it alone in more ways than one, Bahamas drums up a terrific third album of intelligent folk and shades of country pop.

Futurology
 

Futurology

Manic Street Preachers (Columbia)

Drawing on influences ranging from Kraftwerk, Simple Minds and krautrock, Manic Street Preachers deliver one of their finest works and, in the process, offer genuine signs of a fresh start.

Lotsa Rhythm
 

Lotsa Rhythm

Gone Hepsville (Rhythm Bomb)

Possessed with an abundance of riches, Gone Hepsville is the sound of six skilled musicians weaving some potent magic with nothing but ‘Lotsa Rhythm’.

Young Mountain
 

Young Mountain (EP)

This Will Destroy You (Magic Bullet Records)

Rediscovered, this EP from Texas-based This Will Destroy is a thing of exquisite beauty via a succession of post-rock guitars creating sonic soundscapes that stem from small beginnings to something on a much grander scale.

Speechless
 

Speechless: Half A Ton Of Rockin’ Instrumentals

Various Artists (Western Star)

Fifty tracks of white hot guitars with a few added eccentricities that provide the perfect balance to a breathtakingly good two-disc set of rockin’ instrumentals.

All The Way Up
 

Someone Like You (Reprise) (from album All The Way Up)

Ilias (Aguenar)

‘All The Way Up’ is a magnificent achievement from Algerian/Australian Ilias, but the reprised version of ‘Someone Like You’, in particular, strikes the deepest chord.

Vidar Ruud (8)
 

Following Dreams

Vidar Ruud (Ruud Music)

Engaging melodic blues rock from one man daring to take the gamble of a lifetime that is so far beginning to show signs of paying dividends. Vidar Ruud deserves every success judging from the sheer quality running throughout ‘Following Dreams’.

Half Tux
 

Half Tux

Haraball (Fysisk Format)

Underneath the barrage of raging emotions there is considerable mischief as Haraball raise the bar creatively with the post-punk and hardcore of ‘Half Tux’.

Over The Sea
 

Over The Sea (single)

Frøder (Sony Music Norway)

Second single in from Norway’s Frøder, ‘Over The Sea’ possesses a striking vocal intertwined with an indie electronic pop sound that is difficult to ignore such is its alluring power.
