Live4ever’s Best Of 2019: The Tracks

Posted on 10 Dec 2019 at 6:58am

On our Best Albums list, 2019 brought us future classics from Fontaines D.C., Dave, The Murder Capital, FEET, slowthai and black midi to name just a few. Those and plenty more feature too on our favourite tracks of the year.

Picked out by editor David Smith from the hundreds which have featured on these pages during the past twelve months, Sinead O’Brien, Dry Cleaning, Black Country New Road, Kate Tempest and Working Men’s Club are just some who have added to a year which, whilst nostalgia has continued its grip on the mainstream, has quietly created a vintage all of its own.

Album Review: W.H. Lung – Incidental Music

Posted on 07 May 2019 at 8:29am

Imagine going into a Chinese supermarket; you could be there for any reason, from cultural appropriation to getting your weekly groceries, working your way gradually around labels and tastes which are not your own.

Now think about naming your band after one, as the Mancunian trio who purloined WH Lung for themselves boldly did when forming in 2017. Since then they’ve lived the veil of ambiguity which the choice bestowed on them, gigging little but gradually building a reputation for complex and intricate songwriting that fuses genres together with a nonchalant lightness of touch.

Sustaining a feeling after all is far from easy in pop music, a notoriously fragile medium that breaks often when pawed at. There’s a sense of wonder then that only one of Incidental Music’s eight tracks clocks in at less than four minutes, a sure sign of a band playing with utter conviction: that opener Simpatico People undulates over a monstrous near dozen is a show of ambition which rivals that of any debut album in recent months.
