The album reviews of Wolf Alice and Japanese Breakfast are now available on our website. Of course we also have selected the most interesting alternative releases and compiled them in our CHAOTIC TWENTY playlist. Three of the twenty songs are highlighted. Quickly scroll down to see which ones!
Wolf Alice – Blue Weekend
It has been four years since the release of ‘Visions Of A Life’, Wolf Alice’s second album, in December 2018 and after that it went quiet, apart from a sign of life in 2020, Rowsell’s contribution to Mura Masa’s ‘Teenage Heartache Dreams’. So we were pleasantly surprised when in February a new single was suddenly dropped, the release of the single also marked the announcement of the new album ‘Blue Weekend’, which is released today!

Japanese Breakfast – Jubilee
With an unconventional style and a unique universe, Japanese Breakfast’s latest album gives a new lease of life to alternative pop rock. After two first albums, ‘Psychopomp’ and ‘Soft Sounds from Another Planet’, which won over alternative music fans and a year and a half of expectation, Japanese Breakfast is back with a new album, more in line with their personality.
