And now for something completely different

When the Quietus' Matt Kaufman spoke to Mark Greaney back in 2010 (not last year, as I'd mistakenly imagined), the former frontman of JJ72 said that his ex-bandmate Hilary Woods was "getting back into music". Fast forward to 2018, and she certainly has - and with an LP that hardly leaps out as the work of someone once in a band that toured with Coldplay and Muse and was regularly touted as the Next Big Thing. Colt is very good indeed - atmospheric mood music that fully merits a release on the ever excellent Sacred Bones. Here's my Buzz review of the album, and here she is talking about it track by track to Drowned In Sound.

Also featuring in the Buzz album review section for June is my verdict on the Lice LP (well, double EP), out on IDLES' label Balley, and write-ups of albums by Ghost, Orange Goblin and A Certain Ratio.
