RIOT Release Radar: #023

Pubs have reopened following 3 months of lockdown. When you really think about it, £5 for a socially-distanced pint – which may or may not lead to a spike in Corona cases – does seem a little expensive, doesn’t it?

Nonetheless; all independent businesses need the income, so hand over those fivers, consider getting your drink to go and – if in doubt – boycott Wetherspoons.

Christine and the Queens // Eyes of a Child
Taken from the soundtrack of Amazon’s HANNA, Christine pulls it out of the bag as per. MG

Kele // Malanin
The Bloc Party frontman addresses a subject that is far too easily overlooked in the Indie world. “I believe that if we truly want to dismantle the racial division in this country,” the artists says of the track, ‘then it starts with the education system.’ MG

Fontaines D.C. // Televised Mind
The Dublin boys have been releasing tracks at breakneck speed in recent weeks. Having announced a huge Ally Pally show for 2021, the next twelve months belong to Fontaines. MG

Porridge Radio with Lala Lala // Good For You
The collab we never knew we needed. Porridge Radio and Lala Lala join forces from across the Atlantic to showcase what they both do so well. MG

Chappaqua Wrestling // Football
Brighton’s Chappaqua Wrestling have thrown us the perfect laid-back Indie banger for the summer. Never before has the refrain “I hate your friends” sounded so inviting. MG 

Black Marble // In Manchester
80’s-tinged grooves from an artist with a huge repertoire of great songs. Taken from Black Marble’s forthcoming I Must Be Living Twice EP. We caught Black Marble’s Hackney show earlier this year. MG
