NO ENCORE #056 | Contrasting Styles
This week marks the one-year anniversary of the passing of the phenomenal Prince. As such, the NO ENCORE crew felt it only right and proper to pay tribute to The Purple One with an in-depth Listening Guide for newcomers, novices, die-hards and everyone in between.
That’s just one highlight of a Bantum-assisted episode which also features a review of the new Future Islands record and quite the rant about Harry Styles and the reaction to his debut single.
ACT ONE: Dave reports back from a Craig David arena show in 2017, which was both fun and “ambitiously terrible”, apparently.
ACT TWO: This week’s news concerns Jared Kushner, Lorde, KoRn, Vogue and the new Kendrick Lamar album.
ACT THREE: Songs of the Week immediately provokes Dave’s acid tongue as Harry Styles, Frank Ocean, Four Tet, Blink-182 and Lethal Bizzle duke it out.
ACT FOUR: There’s more to Future Islands than a funny dance and some death metal flavour on a popular talk show performance, but is there much more? The Far Field offers some sense of clarity on the issue.
