Overall, The Now Now is a gorgeously plain variant from the Gorillaz. The flashy friends are in short supply and the melodies showcase a mellow nature. Albarn’s deep lyricism and passionate croons over 2-D’s imaginary soul alleviate in a very real way.
Interview with The Hellfreaks’ Shakey Sue about the band’s melodic fusions, rock-n-roll leading ladies, and the gang’s rise from the dead after a brief breakup.
Overall, the Arctic Monkeys reinforced, once again, the notion of existing as a legitimate top-tier rock outfit. Their pageantry is riotous, yet tamed. Polished, though disorderly. Post punk, through the hints of pop. A show deserving of every penny on that ticket price, and a band worthy of your undivided fucking attention.
Ultimately, Enanitos Verdes and Hombres G have collectively aged like fine wines. Their nostalgic cruise through a joint discography best-of is an enticing, dance worthy, beer glass raising, sing at the top of your lungs, fun till you drop extravaganza.
Overall, Call the Comet is the work of a rock icon with a bottomless thirst for reinvention and innovation. It is 2018 and Mr. Marr has set a brand new fucking bar for himself. This son of England’s oasis-themed cosmic-drizzled offering is an exciting and uplifting record that’s on a collision course with those best-of-the-year lists come December.

There are only three rules when attending a Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls ceremony, 1.- Don’t be an asshole, 2.- Make sure your version of fun isn’t stopping other fans from having fun, and 3.- Have a fucking blast.
