WATCH — IDLES “Danny Nedelko” + Tour Dates

June 7th, 2018

IDLES are a politically charged punk band from Bristol with a new album called Joy as an Act of Resistance. — the period is part of the title — so it only makes sense that they’d end up on a record label called Partisan. They are a band fond of lofty statements, such as the one frontman Joe Talbot issued that repeatedly compares the new album to a parade. (One choice quote: “It is a parade of naivety, of a warm embrace, it is Young Thug’s dress.
”) And in the video for new single “Danny Nedelko,” they’ve got another statement on their hands.”

“Argentina’s Chancha Via Circuito (aka Pedro Canale) has been making albums for a decade now, offering up a mix of electronic and more traditional folk sounds, and he continues to gain increased attention outside of his home country. His next album, Bienaventuranza (“a word that essentially means bliss”), comes out June 8 via Wonderwheel Recordings, and it features collaborations with Mateo Kingman, Miriam Garcia, Gianluz, Kaleema, Manu Ranks and Toronto’s Polaris Prize-winning Lido Pimienta.”
