As yet another week draws to a close, Getintothis’ Max Richardson rounds up the happenings here on the site.
Well, here we are once again, it’s time for the Getintothis Top Five.
As ever, we’ve been treated to some utterly sensational new releases this week, with the new album by La Roux having quickly made its mark as the soundtrack to this writer’s weekend.
Elsewhere this week, this writer has been catching up once again with the sensational debut of alt-rockers Yonaka, with Don’t Wait ’Til Tomorrow undoubtedly being one of this writer’s favourite albums released last year.
Don’t Wait ’Til Tomorrow is truly electric, and sizzles with chemistry and energy from start to finish – with tracks such as Bad Company and Punch Bag demonstrating the razor-sharp tightness of the Brighton group.
Of course, it’s not just been a good week for new music releases, but also in the world of television we’ve been treated to the return of Inside Number Nine, the ever-evolving program penned by The League of Gentlemen alumni Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith.
Returning for its fifth series, Inside Number Nine is utterly unpredictable, with episodes typically resembling short films more than traditional television episodes.
Themes of episodes have previously included a work party in a karaoke bar, a burglary, and a medieval witch trial – truly keeping viewers on the edge of their seats.
If you’ve never seen it before, you’re truly missing out – it’s a hell of a watch.
