IDLES – Colossus – Single Review

The English new wave quintet IDLES surfaced with their latest song on the 30th of May.

IDLES - Colossus

IDLES

Colossus is of far less brutal bleeding ears sound that their previous material featured, though of no less pressing urgency and scathing perspective of the world around in a song that pivots around a damp rim stick which elevates the sense of an infestation of cockroaches scrabbling on the door prior to breaching the damn and allowing a festering suppurating pus to reach it stench through the room in their inimitable scathing response and once again lancing the festering boil of a world of petty minded self-righteousness.

Colossus – Single – Idles is available on iTunes.*

IDLES – Stendhal Syndrome – Video

The English new-wave quintet IDLES are nearly ready to release the LP Brutalism.

IDLES - Stendhal Syndrome

IDLES – Stendhal Syndrome

The latest track to surface from the album is Stendhal Syndrome, which is an acidic parody of dismissal of art in a track that celebrates the diversity of creativity.

The message being, accept that what you may like, others may not and vice-versa – it doesn’t matter. It is for the very fact of the diversity that makes for freedom of expression, which shouldn’t be shut down based on arbitrary emotional disconnection.

As yet without a name or a planned release date, one thing that is certain is that Divide & Conquer will be on the album.

IDLES, whilst always having taken a scathing glare at societal mores in Divide & Conquer make their most overtly political statement thus far in a just under three and a half minutes protest at the creeping privatisation of the National Health Service in the UK.

Divide & Conquer is available on Amazon.*

Idles – The Idles Chant – Video

It was back in September 2012 the English garage-rock quintet Idles last featured.

With a change of only one player, Andy being replaced by Lee Kiernan, there is a recognisable thread to the music of Idles.

The four track EP, MEAT is due for release on the 29th. The second piece is The Idles Chant which is a rumbustious rock ‘n’ roll number that will have you thrashing around the room in abandon and frenzied footstep, whilst joining in the vocal gaps.

I have no idea why it has taken me three years to get back to Idles, I certainly hope it doesn’t take that long again.
