Things I really like: basketball, my dog, watching basketball with my dog, and getting to hear rad new records like Timberwolf’s Íkaros. It’s beautiful, smart, engaging and just an all-round warm, encompassing debut. Read my review* of Íkaros for Rolling Stone here.
*one line that didn’t make it in: ‘It’s a record that’ll have you saying ‘fuck Bon over’ quick smart’.
Converge are brutal and amazing and I wrote about their new album The Dusk In Us for Rolling Stone right here. You should read it. And also listen to the album. Because it’s mental. And awesome.
I wrote about the solo debut from Jeremy Neale, erstwhile Velociraptor frontman/pop impresario for Rolling Stone. You can read about it right here.
Hint: the album’s really, really, really good
