In stark contrast to our earlier post featuring the sweet strum of The Lumineers we now have Pile’s new single – the excellently named The Soft Hands Of Stephen Miller. A song about the threat posed by the President’s far-right advisor.

It is noisy and brutal and ferocious and we are loving all two minutes of it – for anyone who has a tune by Big Black, Fugazi or Shellac in their iTunes this is for you – sparse, abrasive and uncompromising.

It comes from upcoming long player Green and Gray, which is out on the 3rd May via Exploding in Sound.

 

2:54’s cover of a Doors classic, No Ages’s cover of a Black Flag classic and the welcome return of Other Lives heads our biggest ever weekly round up of the songs you really should have found some time to listen to already. But if not, here they are in one neat package for you.
