Latebar’s preferred new albums in 2020
What a horrible year! What a horrible time for music, musicians and artists in general. So many events cancelled and so many albums delayed and their launches impeded. Luckily, most found a way through, and at Latebar we have been listening carefully all through the year and found a few publications worth promoting. So buckle up, Dorothy!
Hurts have Faith in the Darkest Hour
The British electro-pop outfit, Hurts, called the autumn 2020 by releasing their fifth studio album. The album is called 'Faith', and in its essence this is what its all about. 11 spectacular tracks – all circling in the area between isolation and depression and the sincere hope of spring and light at the end. At Latebar we like this – a lot in fact. And here is why.
Hurts live from Glastonbury 2013
Just at quick intermission from us here at the Latebar. Especially for all of you synthpop Hurts-fans out there. The full 2013-gig @ Glastonbury is now online. It is definitely worth spending an hour on, as it is well produced and ditto well played.
Hurts back on The Road
With a short Facebook note specifically aimed at its growing crowd of Danish fans the British duo recently announced a release date of a new album - 'Exile'. Listening to the first two burps from the album, Hurts travels down a slightly darker 'Road' this time.
Sure Hurts (is) better than love
Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson are the names of two of Britain's most promising pop artists. Through the spring and summer of 2010, their two singles 'Wonderful Life' and 'Better than life' have oozed from my preferred web channels.
