IDLES

JOY AS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE

PARTISAN RECORDS

Following on from 2017’s sleeper hit album, Brutalism, IDLES return with a record laden with familiar targets. Their pro-NHS, pro-immigration, anti-Tory, anti-toxic-masculinity themes remain key – and they blast through these via ferocious guitars and screeching vocals, all at an explosive pace. The biting humour of their debut – backed up by spiky post-punk and crunchy post-hardcore – still remains here (see I’m Scum), but it also gives way to a more earnest lyrical exploration. This comes in the form of tracks such as June, which explores the tragic loss of lead singer Joe Talbot’s daughter. This followup is a little lacking in infectious singles compared to their debut, but their intention seems rooted more in decency, vulnerability and offering up the most honest, warts and all versions of themselves that they possibly can. This makes for a heartbreaking, angering, joyous and euphoric record – an emotional explosion. Daniel Dylan Wray

About Long Live Vinyl

In issue 18 of Long Live Vinyl we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pixies’ classic debut album Surfer Rosa. We’ve left no stone unturned in getting the inside track on the making of the record at Boston’s Q Division Studios as Black Francis, Joey Santiago, Vaughan Oliver and Simon Larbalestier tell Long Live Vinyl about the legacy of an album that inspired David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead. Plus, we bring you an in-depth review of 4AD’s new Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa Deluxe Edition. Elsewhere in this packed issue of Long Live Vinyl, we speak to teenage duo Let’s Eat Grandma about their superb sophomore album, I’m All Ears, head out on the road with Chicago guitar virtuoso Ryley Walker and tell the story of Small Faces’ legendary Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake LP. Post-punk fans will want to check out our Essential top 40 – a definitive collector’s guide to the genre, and our Classic Album series focuses on Pulp’s 1995 career-high Different Class. We also hear from legendary photographer Mick Rock about shooting David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed, and The Trip visits a cratedigger’s paradise – Amsterdam. If all that’s not enough, you’ll find the widest range of album, turntable and hi-fi accessory reviews anywhere on the newsstand. Enjoy the issue!
