Things We Love This Week: Muncie Girls, Pip Blom, the Lemon Twigs, Billie Eilish

There’s a sinking feeling in everyone’s stomach this week. Razorlight have announced their fourth album, a total of 14 years after their debut, and 12 since America came out. You are OLD.

Muncie Girls – Clinic

Muncie Girls are at it again with another suitably catchy song and important message. In the video for latest single Clinic, the band undergo a science experiment based on a 1920s theory that everyone produces the same facial reaction when being exposed to specific situations including fear, joy, disgust and more. What’s cool is that they use this ridiculous notion to criticise the way mental health is dealt with. Not everyone is the same. Obviously.

Muncie Girls’ latest album ‘Fixed Ideals’ is out today.

Pip Blom

…are going on tour! I really like this band and think you should too. Hailing from Amsterdam, the indie-rock outfit are touring across the UK and Ireland, stopping at a total of 14 cities. Yay! Find all the tour dates here.

The Lemon Twigs – ‘Go To School’

Regardless of what it sounds like, the concept of this album is just hilarious. The Lemon Twigs’ new high-concept rock-musical is out today. ‘Go To School’ is about a chimp who is raised as a human boy, and starts school. What happens next? Banana trickery? Swinging around from the ceiling? Monkey noises in the playground? Not quite. Unloved, bullied and heartbroken, Shane burns down the school and runs away to live a life of solitude in the woods. You can’t not listen to this.

Are we going to question why she’s got a MASSIVE spider on her face? No? OK then.

Expect many spiders all over the place on her upcoming tour dates. (Not really.)
