Check Out Boston Manor’s Acoustic Version Of ‘Algorithm’

Boston Manor have recently released a new acoustic rendition of recent single ‘Algorithm’. It’s a delicately lush, piano-led iteration of the track which is a rumination of the burden to perpetuate “content” beyond art, that creators are laden with these days. The original version of ‘Algorithm’ features on Boston Manor’s ‘Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures’ EP, which was released in October via their new label SharpTone Records to critical acclaim. The EP is now available on 10” vinyl, following its digital and cassette tape formats. 

‘Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures’ marks a concerted step into the future for Boston Manor. It’s the coining of a bold, bright new sound, building upon the bruising pop-punk of their earlier work, the big moves of last album ‘GLUE’, to compose music that’s both heavier and more unabashedly accessible than that which preceded it. Hook-laden, coherent, blackly witty and with a molten emotional core, it’s the opening of a new chapter, hinting at even greater brilliance to follow. This latest collection sees Boston Manor tapping into teen influences of the late 90s – the Cardigans, the Cranberries, later-era Depeche Mode. They recorded their new material at Stustustudio in Brixton with Larry Hibbitt.

Northlane Announce Acoustic EP, ‘2D’

Aussie metalcore outfit Northlane have announced details of an acoustic EP, ‘2D’, which is set to be released on May 21st 2021 via UNFD.

Vocalist Marcus Bridge explains:

“Recording an acoustic EP is something that we’ve wanted to do for quite some time and felt right with the personal nature of the songs from ‘Alien’. I wanted to strip these songs back to the bare minimum to juxtapose the soundscapes of the album, a 2D version of sorts. A song like ‘Rift’ has a completely different energy in this context and took on new meaning with the recording in the depths of lockdown, now almost feeling like a cry of frustration and despair.”
