ALBUM: The Futureheads – Rant

Release Date: April 2nd, 2012
Label: Nut Records


Here we have The Futureheads‘ fifth studio album, ‘Rant’, the entirely a cappella follow-up to 2010’s ‘The Chaos’. The boys have stripped themselves right down and eliminated the security of their instruments in this ambitious and somewhat risky endeavour. If, like me, you remember being instantly gripped by the rounded “ah, oh oh” vocals at the beginning of their massive 2005 hit cover of Kate Bush‘s ‘Hounds Of Love’, you might already have a soft spot for what you’re about to hear.

SPOTIFY: Reading/Leeds Festival 2010 playlist!

Did everyone who went to Reading and Leeds festival this year have a good time? We’re sure being back at home may be more comfy and warm but not as fun as your weekend just was, but it’s not all bad. We’ve made a playlist for all of you to relive your experience, shoving all the best artists into one chain of 37 tracks of bands and acts who played across the festival weekend. Of course not every single band that played over the weekend is on the playlist, that’d be silly and some of them were a bit rubbish. We just shoved on those that we cover on the site and think you’d appreciate the most.

If you’re a Spotify user check it out and let us know what you think of it:
Reading/Leeds Festival 2010 playlist

Festival goers enjoy, and those who didn’t go just shove this on really loud and pretend you were there. Maybe bring some mud and grass in from outside, pitch a tent in your living room, wear some wellies and drink and dance lots!
