2017 has been a fantastic year for music, with the ‘surprise release’ being the theme of the year. Be it bands dropping albums out of nowhere with no warning, or announcing audacious plans to release five albums in a year (I’m looking at you, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard), in 2017 you’ve never quite known what’s coming next. Here’s what I thought were the ten finest albums of the year.
2017 is nearly coming to an end, and there’s still so many albums left to review. So many in fact, that here Indiecisive is trying a brand new format – the mini review. In one paragraph each, here’s my thoughts on 20 albums released in the latter months of 2017, in alphabetical order by artist. Let’s go.
The quest for Indiecisive to catch up on all the albums we haven’t reviewed yet in 2017 is nearly over – here’s five more to chew on…
Five more album reviews are here as Indiecisive’s gradual catch-up to the now continues – this time it’s another real mixed back with alt-J, Lorde, Marika Hackman, Pixx and Royal Blood.
One year on from their ninth full-length album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’ and 20 years on from the seminal ‘OK Computer’, Radiohead are back on tour again, stopping off in Manchester for their only UK (non-festival) date of 2017. Originally intended to be 2 gigs at the Manchester Arena, the concerts were combined into one at Emirates Old Trafford, a massive venue with a 50,000 capacity. Perhaps not the most natural of venues for a concert, but the band made it shine.
