Alright, lets do this.. we’re going to look back on some of my favourite albums of 2015. The criteria is this.. the record had to come out in 2015 and I had to love it.. that’s it..
Day 5 – Record 5
WOLF ALICE – MY LOVE IS COOL
Wolf Alice. London, England. What can we say about Wolf Alice of London, England? They kick all the ass! Wolf Alice are a 90s band releasing records nearly 20 years later. The spirit of bands like Garbage and Veruca Salt flow through them. Watch the video for ‘Freazy’ below and tell me that if someone in 1993 brought that idea to Blind Melon they wouldn’t have made that video.. 100% they would have.
Wolf Alice are a throw back to when guitars were crunchy, vocals were their own instrument and drummers were heavy handed. Wolf Alice stand apart from the crowd in 2015 because the noise they make is so different and yet familiar. Maybe thats a sad commentary on the state of rock n roll in 2015 but I prefer to focus on the positive that Wolf Alice are a band out there kicking ass and hopefully inspiring a new generation, as appose to the idea that they’re the last of their species.
Start to finish Wolf Alice made an awesome record easily deserving of the #5 spot on my countdown.
Lets long for the 90s together with some music from Wolf Alice shall we?
