RICHARD SWIFT THE BLINDERS
The Hex Columbia
Origin : California, USA Origin : Doncaster, England
Genre : Indie Rock Genre : Alternative Rock

==> Last album recorded, before his death in July 2018, by the American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and short-film maker. Album "Steeped in a milieu of devastating loss, grief, crippling depression, anxiety and alcoholism" (Press release statement)

==> Brilliant debut album by the British three-piece formed in 2014 and based now in Manchester. "With a wide range of musical influences from Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Dylan, The Fall, and John Cooper Clarke, The Blinders have created their own sound and have permeated it into their live performances through their now infamous gigs which are raucous, sweaty and passionate affairs." (Music Glue)
   
LIARS BEAK>
Titles With The Word Fountain (TFCF Deluxe Edition) >>>
Origin : Brooklyn, New York, USA Origin : Bristol, England

==> In 2017, Liars became a solo project with only Angus Andrew left standing. This new album has been recorded at the same time as the previous one TFCF. Andrew sees the album as “a sequel. I chose the songs that appear on TFCF based on how well they addressed the trauma of a failed creative relationship, whereas the material on Titles With The Word Fountain is more playful despite revolving around the same sentiments.” (Stereogum)
