Thursday, 15 February 2018 Written by Huw Baines

The HIRS Collective will put out their first full length this spring.

‘Friends. Lovers. Favorites’ features a stacked supporting cast, with contributions from Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace, Shirley Manson of Garbage, Limp Wrist’s Martin Crudo, Screaming Females’ Marissa Paternoster, Erica Freas of RVIVR, Sadie Switchblade of G.L.O.S.S., Alice Bag and Candace Hansen, and Pierce of Soul Glo.

It’s out on April 20 via Get Better/SRA and will also include last year’s ‘You Can’t Kill Us’ and a reworked version of that EP under the name ‘You Can Remix Us’. HIRS also have a split with tourmates Thou out on the same day.

Photo: Rob Blackham Sometimes an album arrives from out of nowhere and knocks you off your feet. There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Photo: Lera Pentelute Supergroup is a big, ugly label. It’s reductive, and it ramps up the pressure on what is always a new endeavour—even if the players are seasoned pros. Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.

Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.

Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2018
Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
