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."

The Twilight Sad - It Won/t Be Like This All The Time (Album Review)
Tue 22 Jan 2019
When football fever gripped England in the summer of 2018, as Gareth Southgate’s side saw off Sweden to book a place in the World Cup semi-finals, the celebrations extended to the sweltering heat of London’s Hyde Park. A huge crowd had assembled to witness a similarly colossal line-up curated by the Cure at British Summer Time, swapping the pubs and bars of the capital for sweeping goth-pop following the final whistle.

Steve Mason - About The Light (Album Review)
Thu 24 Jan 2019
‘About the Light’, Steve Mason’s first collection since 2016, is a raucous album of finely tuned British rock that gyrates and swaggers with skill and precision. It’s an excellent turn from a musician whose decades-long musical career has taken him on a journey through folktronica, experimental indie and the borderlands of downtempo shoegaze, and who has been through multiple reinventions since the Beta Band called it quits.
Blood Red Shoes - Get Tragic (Album Review)
Thu 31 Jan 2019
Blood Red Shoes’ fifth studio album is a lairy procession of ‘90s-infused indie-rock songs that make great use of Laura-Mary Carter’s sexy, laconic burr. Created after the band fell out—and Carter promptly left for L.A.—the Brighton duo built bridges and got to work. The result is probably their best work since 2008’s ‘Box of Secrets’.
Sharon Van Etten - Remind Me Tomorrow (Album Review)

Photo: Ryan Pfluger We’ve all got them: those little chores we should be getting on with. Posting that letter. Watering our houseplants. Shaving our legs. Sharon Van Etten’s got them, too, but she favours a different approach to these small administrative tasks. ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, her fifth album, is about being more present and not giving a shit about the small stuff.
