New Music Friday - July 15

This week’s New Music Friday features new album releases from Interpol, black midi, Beabadoobee, Working Men’s Club, and Lizzo. Happy listening!

“Gran Hotel” by Interpol

Album: The Other Side of Make-Believe


“A record packed with solitary voices, the New Yorkers seem to amplify their ability to capture the beauty in melancholy, stripping back the paint of the everyday to reveal the extraordinary underneath.“
Clash Music

“Sugar/Tzu” by black midi

Album: Hellfire


“‘Hellfire’ delivers more musical thrills and about-turns per minute than few other records we’ve heard this year. Sounding more assured of their creative agility than ever before, ‘Hellfire’ is the work of a very special group of alchemists.”

“Sunny Day” by Beabadoobee

Album: Beatopia


“At times, it sounds like Kristi has simply moved her rock-historic references up a few years into the later Nineties, when some of the best indie-pop was getting sonically cleaner and more refined. … All these innovations work and feel natural, and they serve as a nice backdrop for songs that stare down tough emotions while looking for clarity.”
Rolling Stone

“Ploys” by Working Men’s Club

Album: Fear Fear


“Working Men’s Club burst onto the alternative scene in 2020 with their self-titled dance-infused debut album, analysing documentations of life in the north of England and all of its discrepancies with catchy hooks and witty lyrics. Their follow-up, Fear Fear, keeps the band’s momentum firmly on track. It channels more of a dystopian feel than their debut, with slightly less commercial appeal, but delving into its neatly layered tracks, there are new gems to unearth.”
The Skinny

“The Sign” by Lizzo

Album: Special


“Her aim with Special, as in her life and career, is to encourage people to express all kinds of love. For friends and family yes, but especially self-love. And indeed, love is smothered all over the album. She wrote some 170 songs for the project over the span of three years, then pared it down to the 12 best and most necessary. Lizzo made a collection of songs that’s fun and overwhelming encouraging, and honestly, it’s really hard to find a fault with it. If you do, you either despise feel-good music or ignore what pop culture should be.”
