Muncie Girls Reveal Details Of Sophomore LP 'Fixed Ideals', Confirm Autumn UK Tour

Wednesday, 13 June 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Muncie Girls have announced their second album.

'Fixed Ideals', the follow up to 2016's 'From Caplan to Belsize',  is due to arrive on August 31, with a UK tour set to follow in September and October. Tickets go on sale at 10am on June 15. Head below for dates.

Speaking about playing both bass and guitar on the record, Lande Hekt said:

“Having two guitars sounds really different and adds intricacy to the songs. I was listening to different music when I wrote the songs and when we recorded it so that probably sounds quite different. I was listening to a lot of The Replacements, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Popguns and The Pastels so i wonder if any of that is audible! I think we all became a bit more adventurous when we were writing and recording this record.”

Watch a video for the album's first single, Picture Of Health, and check out the artwork and tracklist, below.

Petal - Magic Gone (Album Review)
Wed 04 Jul 2018
‘Magic Gone’ begins abruptly with the Teenage Kicks-esque power chords of Better Than You, painting a picture of an album that’s going to be fuelled by anger, passion and enthusiasm, but the reality is far more measured.
Jim James - Uniform Distortion (Album Review)
Thu 05 Jul 2018
Photo: Justin Tyler Close On Jim James’ third solo album, the My Morning Jacket bandleader has dispensed with indie psychedelia in favour of straightforward, gutsy rock tunes. The result is a record of tight musical elements, with a consistently radio-friendly sound, that falls flat when compared to more innovative releases by better rock songwriters.
Sons of Bill - Oh God Ma'am (Album Review)
Thu 12 Jul 2018
Almost everything you need to know about the remarkable transformation Virginia siblings Sons of Bill have undergone on ‘Oh God Ma’am’ can be gleaned from its album cover. An old-fashioned colour TV lies on the floor, smashed and surrounded by dirt, its shadow eclipsing the light. The screen shows a grinning, optimistic, all American kid, his image bisected by the shattered screen. The dream, as they say, is over.
Immortal - Northern Chaos Gods (Album Review)
Wed 11 Jul 2018
Not many Norwegian black metal bands can claim to be a legitimate part of popular culture. They’re not usually seen doing ‘What’s In My Bag?’ videos or hanging out with Post Malone. Instead, they’re in the forest. Being grim. Being evil.

Bodega - Endless Scroll (Album Review)
Mon 16 Jul 2018
Bodega are the art school kids who might sneer at you for Instagramming a picture at their show. They’re the ones who, after a convincing “this isn’t satire”, order their audience to check their emails during the next song. Bodega roll out lines like “I touch myself while staring at your chat text box” and “I use my computer for everything, heaven knows I’m miserable now.” Their message: we are dominated by consumer culture and technology is taking over our lives.
There's Something About You: The Beths Strike Pop Gold on 'Future Me Hates Me'
Wed 18 Jul 2018
The Beths are learning Welsh. It’s a little after 10 at Le Pub in Newport, and the New Zealand indie-pop band are parroting back a few reliable words and phrases shouted from the crowd. They try cwtch and iechyd da on for size before Elizabeth Stokes draws a line under it. “We’re butchering this,” she says. “Let’s do a song.”
