THERE are (already) seismic rumbles being created by…

the previews/reviews for Arcade Fire’s latest album, Everything Now. It is, in fact, getting five-star rave and (it is) something that will be on my mind when it arrives (on Friday). It could well steam ahead as the best album of 2017 – and might well stay there should something monumental arrive afterwards. This week is not exactly shabby, to be honest.

Among the eighty-or-so songs in the pack; there are album cuts from Declan McKenna, Lana Del Rey and Dizzee Rascal. Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbot have a new record out; chart hits are flowing and there are fresh singles from Milk Teeth, The Horrors and Broken Social Scene – and the wonder that is Skott.

It is a tasty, varied and fantastic collection of music morsels from the finest artists around…

It is a great week for music – not that it shouldn’t have been – but I am glad to see some hyped albums actually living up to the chatter. Declan McKenna and Lana Del Rey have unveiled two terrific, if varied, albums and got people talking. I have seen a lot of great songs from the underground come through – tried to capture them here – and big names providing incredible singles.

Let’s hope this continues into next week and, oh yeah

Did I mention Arcade Fire are releasing an album?!
