Alpha Wolf – Half Living Things (Greyscale Records/SharpTone Records)

Hotly anticipated? That’s an understatement. This is Alpha Wolf, and they have been on an absolute tear for some time now. Hence, the lofty expectations that come with this new release. Expectations that could be too much for a ‘normal’ band to handle, but Alpha Wolf live and breathe this sort of thing.

ANIIMALIA – Carousel (Marshall Records)

I do love a release that manages to grab my attention almost immediately, which is something Carousel does. ANIIMALIA coming out of the starting blocks with a chaotic burst of punky sounding instruments, before revealing the depth to their alt-rock sound.

Tons of heart and soul, bouncy blasts of nostalgic energy, emo-esqe emotion, and more infectious vibes than a chicken-pox party. Which, happily, Between You & Me deliver on this EP. Six tracks long, and each will leave you with a big smile spread across your face.

Erra – Cure (UNFD)

Erra’s new era comes with lofty expectations, and most will come away very satisfied by what they have done here. It is a big undertaking, and having the album captivate as it does, is one hell of an accomplishment. There’s a lot to take in here, but the payoff makes it more than worthwhile.
