The good bits from the past month in one place
April 2018 saw many big events – hell, the last week alone was wild. The nation’s favourite tax expense squeezed out another baby. Kanye West returned to Twitter, doling out life advice like your drunk uncle on Christmas day, only to post half-coherent conservative statements and pictures of signed MAGA hats, like your drunk uncle on every other day of the year. Maybe you queued up outside your local record shop at 9pm the night before Record Store Day, and only left with a Courteeners picture disk from 2011. Don’t even get us started on the fact that spring looked like it was about to arrive and then disappeared without trace. The music, however, was great, and these are the pick of what our team were into in the past month.
Artist: Daniel Avery
Title: Song for Alpha
What is it? Your favourite DJ’s favourite DJ spends less time listening to My Bloody Valentine and more time refining his artful techno.
L&Q says: “Right now, no-one else is colouring in-between the lines quite like Daniel Avery and these tracks are to invade your thoughts and dreams.”
