another late playlist. Heavy Lungs got me very excited for their new album with a brutal two-part single (A Bit of a) Birthday.

a hard-hitting yet strangely poetic debut album from Dublin band FONTAINES D.C was a must listen this month. look out for Fat White Family too, who showcase a fascinating blend of rock-and-roll, country, and psychedelia in their third album Serfs Up! use this link if safari's being stupid
