Things We Love This Week: Kendrick Lamar, Joanna Gruesome And More


Hello all, and a happy Friday to you. Huw here with another batch of good stuff from the last seven days. Listen away…

Kendrick Lamar – The Blacker The Berry

Following up I, Kendrick returned with The Blacker The Berry, a complex, devastating take on race in America following the death of Trayvon Martin and events in Ferguson, not to mention a technical tour-de-force.

Joanna Gruesome – Last Year

Just as good as we’ve come to expect from this band. ‘Peanut Butter’, their second album, is shaping up to be one of the best of the year.

Pup – Back Against The Wall

Another great video from these eternally scrappy, thoroughly excellent Canadian punks. If you haven’t investigated their self-titled record yet then you are well and truly missing out.

RVIVR – Goodbyes

Perhaps the standout track from the ‘Bicker and Breathe’ EP (which was all pretty great) gets the tour video treatment.

Cheers folks. @huw_baines

Things We Love This Week


Friday! Joy! It’s been a busy one here at Stereoboard HQ, but busy generally means there’s been some good stuff going on. This week’s been no different, so, without further wibble from me, here are the things that floated our boat in the last seven days.

Pup – Mabu

Pup’s self-titled debut ruled and Mabu, for my money, is the best song on it. An ode to a beloved car, it’s now been paired with a heartwarming Demolition Derby-themed video. It’s great.

Sundials – Stun Spore

Sundials’ new EP, ‘Kick’, is out in November and, if Stun Spore is anything to go by, is shaping up to be a worthy follow-up to the power-pop blast of ‘When I Couldn’t Breathe’.

Self Defense Family – Duets

Patrick Kindlon and Caroline Corrigan are sharing vocal duties on this latest Self Defense Family release, which is a new and welcome development after Corrigan’s superb contributions to ‘Try Me’ and ‘You Are Beneath Her’. The EP is streaming over at Alternative Press.
