About the show
Playing tracks by
Dark Sky, Dutch Uncles, Bombay Bicycle Club, Refused, Shapes & Sizes and more.
After a relatively relaxed feel to the Part 1 of this week's show, the closing half steps things up a bit with a bit of peaked-out bass metal from Sleigh Bells, a rave-indebted banger from London's Dark Sky, two fine remixes from Thurston Moore and Jon Hopkins and spaced out, stretched pop from the likes of Hind Ear, Candy Claws and Shapes and Sizes.
The only World Cup-related song I could bring myself to include on New Noise, (I love football, just not the avalanche of hastily made, loosely jingoistic tripe that surfaces every four years. Even the so-called good ones are pretty bad), comes from Manchester's marvellous Dutch Uncles. Their 'Fabio Acapello' has to be heard, even if you have no care who or what Fabio Capello is.
Finally, the song after which this show (originally a podcast) was named, courtesy of Swedish legends Refused. Their seminal album 'The Shape of Punk To Come' is re-released as a deluxe edition this week, and so New Noise closes with THE 'New Noise'.
