NO ENCORE #131 | Rage, Rage Against The Dying Of The Razorlight
Back in the cosy confines of NO ENCORE Towers – complete with Craig for good measure – the boys are back in business. From plagued planes and useless eulogies to the rise of the Swedish far right, there’s plenty to discuss so let’s get crackin’…
ACT ONE: Vanilla Ice struggles to keep his cool, Aretha Franklin’s funeral gets weird, and Paul McCartney gets deep – it’s the news!
ACT TWO: Big Red Machine, the nebulous project from Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner, has finally taken the form of an album. The question, though, is whether it’s any good.
ACT THREE: THEY’RE BACK! Yes, if you’ve spent the past few years thinking “gosh, it’s a bit quiet without Razorlight around” then boy are you going to enjoy our songs of the week. Thom Yorke, Yak, and Bun B’s collab with Run The Jewels also feature – but that hardly matters really, does it?
