DiS' editor +Sean Adams raves about the new album from - sometime Postal Service member - Laura Burhenn aka The Mynabirds which is out today on Saddle Creek.
From her Postal Service day job to writing the classic pomp-pop we've been waiting a decade for The Killers to write.

"You see it with sport. People get cast in a certain role: he's this type of player, and then when something contradictory happens they can't accept the contradiction, so they have to create a new narrative. We're on the fifth or sixth narrative of me in public life - I was a tyrant, I wouldn't let my bandmates play on the album blah blah blah blah blah. No amount of me explaining that ever changes it, the only way I can change it is if I keep trumping the creation..."

Smashing Pumpkins' frontman is in fighting form, rallying against his detractors. And with good reason.

This week's singles column is now live!
 
This week's singles/tracks/songs column includes the phrases:
- "leaves you feeling as sweaty and boxed in as a man in a pig costume" - Kate Solomon 
- "the aural equivalent of 'shots fired' if they were fired from a nerf gun." - Tom Fenwick
- Gemma Samways asks you to "imagine a world where Radio 1’s Live Lounge isn’t a safe space for Alex Turner to sh** on Girls Aloud’s greatest hits"
- And I mumbled something a long the lines of "I'll probably be the one in the front row mouthing all the words."
Oya festival pick, True Grit, Drake vs Meek Mill, Autre Ne Vuet, Erza Furman, Icarus Line, Traams and "C Beebies gone bad."

A two-and-a-half minute short, sharp shock to the system by way of sonic annihilation.

DiS caught up with Idlewild to learn more about their fantastic 8th album Everything Ever Written http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4148584-scotch-broth--idlewild-discuss-everything-ever-written 

Marc Burrows writes:  2015 see’s a new Idlewild album, Everything Ever Written a record which is, genuinely, hand on heart, one of the best things they’ve ever done... The sessions started to produce music that differed markedly from the full-throttle rock of the last two Idlewild albums, or their big turn-of-the-millenium hits. “[Bob Dylan’s] The Basement Tapes was a big inspiration for me on this record, in that I didn’t want anything lyrically and vocally, to sound too laboured over, I wanted a freshness to it.” Says Woomble. That’s not to say there wasn’t a certain Idlewildyness to proceedings, “It still sounds like Idlewild.” says Jones “We’ve got a sound, and I don’t think individually any of us know why that is, but when we’re all making records together we do have a sound, we have a sonic landscape. We’re all on the same page. A mixture of the three, certainly with me, Roddy and Colin, when you put the three together, the way I play guitar, the way Colin plays drums, none of us do anything in the traditional sense, we’re all kind of self-taught and learned our own way, as most of the bands we loved did.”
