Getintothis top five #21: most read music, gigs, features and stories of the week


The Getintothis top five stories of the week

As yet another week rolls on by, Getintothis’ Max Richardson rounds up the happenings of the last seven days.

The sun’s back out, there’s some great football fixtures set for this weekend, and we’ve been treated to some great new albums this week – it’s once again time for the Getintothis top five.

Well, once again it’s been a busy week of new music releases, sensational gigs, and some interesting news.

This writer’s week has been soundtracked by the bizarre cocktail of the new releases from Bon Iver, Taylor Swift and Slipknot – all three of which are some seriously good albums.

The latest release from iconic nu-metal group Slipknot We Are Not Your Kind is a particular standout, which is a real treat of a record – and possibly the heaviest record released by the group in a good number of years.

Meanwhile, Lover, the more docile effort from pop songstress Taylor Swift is a return to form from her slightly disappointing previous release Reputation, with a style more akin to 2014’s utterly sublime 1989.

Have you been listening to any interesting new releases this week? Feel free to let us know in the comments – we’d love to hear what you’re listening to.

Elsewhere this week, this writer finally got round to seeing the new effort from Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

It’s a superb film, in my eyes arguably his best – if you haven’t yet got around to seeing it on the big screen, definitely be sure to change that.

And so, without further ado – let’s get down to business with the top five stories and gigs of the week here at Getintothis:
