As yet another week draws to a close, Getintothis’ Max Richardson rounds up the happenings on the site.
Well what a week it’s been.
Here at Getintothis, a topic of discussion came about last night which got many of us thinking.
It’s a spin on the traditional desert island discs format – where instead of three or five albums, you can take all of the work by one single artist.
Do you go for a group with loads of albums to keep the variety? Or do you go for an artist with less albums but that are maybe at a higher quality.
We’d love to hear your thoughts – so do let us know in the comments whose records you’d be bringing along with you.
Personally, it’s a tough call but I’d say Nine Inch Nails edge it for me – they’ve got a big back catalogue, and it’s all of a great quality.
Elsewhere this week, this writer has finally had a bit of a chance to digest the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds record – and what a record it is.
Ghosteen is undoubtedly up there with some of Cave’s best work, and is a truly exceptional record from start to finish – full to the brim of Cave’s signature atmospheric vocals and poignant lyrics.
And so anyway, without further ado – let’s crack on with the Getintothis top five stories and gigs of the week:
