In 1986 I truly cherished my red Sony Walkman and I played 5 specific albums over and over that year until the cassettes broke. 5 albums that I still love. Thirty years later I reminisce and feel the warmth in my music soul. #1986


Still a fantastic album. #ScrittiPolitti


Matt Johnson of The The made a film of the Infected album in 1986, which featured a video for each track on the album. The film had been gathering dust for 30 years. The ICA in London screened the film along with a Q&A session with Matt Johnson and Tim Pope and others over three nights in September 2016. This film recounts stories about the making of the film, like when Tim and Matt needed police protection to film in Spanish Harlem and in a brothel in New York. The album Infected was visually, musically and lyrically far ahead of its time and so were the political ideas expressed that still ring true today.

Bon Iver have confirmed details of their third studio album, “22, A Million”. The record will be released on September 30 via Jagjaguwar. The album was recorded at April Base Studios in Fall Creek, Wisconsin and in London and Lisbon. Rumours of the album started circulating after a mysterious mural appeared in New York, featuring similar artwork to that recently posted on the band’s social media accounts. The album’s artwork is by New York-based artist Eric Timothy Carlson. (via NME)
