Fantastic Releases for February 4
Bastille - Give Me The Future (Click To Order)- Give Me The Future, Bastille's wildly-ambitious new album, is a tribute to tech times and a glimpse of what could be to come. Exploring both the opportunities of new technology and the dark side of lives lived online, it's as playful as it is thought-provoking, as dystopian as it is dancefloor-friendly and as electronic as Bastille have ever been.
Korn - Requiem (Click To Order)- `Requiem' follows Korn's critically acclaimed 2019 release, `The Nothing'. Korn changed the world with the release of their self-titled debut album. It was a record that would pioneer a genre, while the band's enduring success points to a larger cultural moment. The band has continued to push the limits of the rock, alternative and metal genres while remaining a pillar of influence for legions of fans and generations of artists around the globe.
Black Country New Road - Ants From Up There (Click To Order) - Black Country, New Road will release the second album, 'Ants From Up There' on February 4th via Ninja Tune. Following on almost exactly a year to the day from the release of their acclaimed debut 'For the first time', the band have harnessed the momentum from that record and run full pelt into their second, with 'Ants From Up There' managing to strike a skilful balance between feeling like a bold stylistic overhaul of what came before, as well as a natural progression. 'For the first time' melded klezmer, post-rock, indie and an often intense spoken word delivery. On 'Ants From Up There' they have expanded on this unique concoction to create a singular sonic middle ground that traverses classical minimalism, indie-folk, pop, alt rock and a distinct tone that is already unique to the band.
A Place To Bury Strangers - See Through You (Click To Order) - Following up on 2021’s highly acclaimed Hologram EP, the rebooted lineup— vocalist/guitarist Oliver Ackermann plus drummer/vocalist Sandra Fedowitz and bassist John Fedowitz (both of Ceremony East Coast)— delivers an overclocked set of futuristic electronic punk music encoded with punishing industrial rhythms, swirling voltage-starved guitars and unclassifiable auditory annihilation. Across thirteen tracks recorded in seclusion throughout the nihilistic absurdity of the coronavirus pandemic, See Through You is proof-positive that the group hailed as “The Loudest Band in New York” is still finding new ways to push the needle deeper in the red.
