Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders And Milburn's Joe Carnall Detail Debut Album As Good Cop Bad Cop

Monday, 04 February 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Arctic Monkey's Matt Helders and Milburn's Joe Carnall have announced their new collaborative project, Good Cop Bad Cop.

The pair are set to release the self-titled debut album under the moniker on March 29 and support it with spring tour dates. Stops include Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, London, Nottingham, Bristol and a homecoming date for the duo in Sheffield on April 19. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on February 6.

The record's first single, Silk and Leather, was written by Carnall and produced by Helders, with the vocalist sending homemade demos to the drummer in Los Angeles. The track showcases a more electronic sound than the pair are used to. Carnall said:

"Even though we're old mates, it was surreal having someone of that calibre drumming and singing backing vocals on songs I'd written."

Helders added:

"I've become progressively more interested in production over the years but have perhaps never been brave enough to take the first steps; Joe's project seemed like the perfect place to start. It was great for both of us as we could afford to make mistakes without a huge bill to pay at the end. It really was just two old friends spending time together and making music in a glorified garage."

Cate Le Bon - Reward (Album Review)
Tue 04 Jun 2019
Photo: Ivana Kličković Cate Le Bon has never been easy to pin down. Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
