If you know what I’m talking about, congratulations (the Suede PR department is brilliantly snarky, by the way)! If you don’t, read on.

Suede have finally finished their 7th album, titled Night Thoughts, and will unveil the album live with a film at the Roundhouse venue in London. The teaser for the album has some serious shoegaze-y vibes. Brett, I don’t know what you’re doing, but I’m really curious about that teaser – and I hope it’s going to sound as good as Bloodsports was! Shoegaze was at its peak in the early 90s while Suede were still peddling their wares as sleazy, dangerous rent-boys… and Brett is a well-known fan of The Horrors, so so this will be very, very interesting.


If you’re scratching your head and going “Suede – who are they?”..oh well, never mind. Suede are:

  1. that 90s band from Britain who were hastily stuffed under the “Britpop” tag by journalists too eager to slap scene labels in their magazines. They may have single-handedly invented the hype process, of which the NME are guilty of. (See: Best New Band In Britain! headline on most NME issues)
  2. They are made up of Brett Anderson (vocals/tantric dancer), Richard Oakes (guitarist), Neil Codling(keyboards/guitar/one-time lizard man), Mat Osman (bass/the art of loftiness) and Simon Gilbert (drums). Former members include Justine Frischmann (guitarist/backing vocals) and Justin Welch (drums) who left and started Elastica, Bernard Butler (guitarist) and Alex Lee, formerly from Strangelove (keyboards).
  3. Suede made three fantastic albums – the self-titled debut, Dog Man Star and Coming Up. Head Music and A New Morning were, well – not great. Following a 10-year hiatus after splitting in 2003, they reformed in 2011, initially to perform and raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust, but decided to tour again. Suede subsequently released Bloodsports in 2013. (this is a fantastic album, by the way.)

If you’re still wondering who the blazes are Suede..perhaps some visual material might jog your rusty memories?

Metronomy - Summer 08' (2016) : I've been taking some time off from this music blog to focus on my poetry/writing blog, as I've previously mentioned. It's been a difficult decision but I will be putting CVLT Youths on indefinite hiatus. Lots of stuff happened over the past few months, which made me think hard about what I wanted, and writing for myself won, hands down. It's not the best "career" option out there but if people like what I write, I'm happy enough. I'll still post on Instagram sometimes or write the occasional review, but don't expect to see regular updates. Thank you for the lovely chats, the exchanges, the recs - you know who you are 😘 Anyway, I've been listening to this and it sounds like 80s' italo disco, seriously a step up from their previous one. Quite fun, in fact! #metronomy #summer08 #nowplaying #albumoftheday#musicoftheday #music #recordoftheday #nowlistening
Prince - Sign O' The Times (1987) : I've been getting caught up with my new writing blog for some time now and totally neglected this one.... 😖 So here's me listening to some Prince. #prince #signothetimes #albumoftheday #recordoftheday #musicoftheday #nowplaying #nowlistening #music #rock
Still pinching myself, ouch... A shout out to @unquietnights for the feature, keep the good music coming through! 👍 #goodmusicwillprevail #music
Fiona Brice: Postcards From (2016) : The piano and violins are pleasing enough on the ears, but something's missing....or maybe this needs more listens. I'm still in love with Berlin though 😍 #fionabrice #postcardsfrom #bellaunion #albumoftheday #musicoftheday #recordoftheday #nowplaying #nowlistening #music #webstagram cvltyouths.wordpress.com
Cashew Chemists - Previously On...Cashew Chemists EP (2015) : I was pretty blown away by this EP - this is what pop music should resemble, in the very least. Not songs that sound like each other (and probably ripped off a drum beat or two off each other as well) on the radio! By the way, for Singapore peeps they're playing Baybeats 2016 this Saturday evening, at the Esplanade Outdoor Theater at 10.30. Watch out for them! If you'd like to hear their music, check them out at cashewchemists.bandcamp.com @cashewchemists #tgif #cashewchemists #previouslyoncashewchemists #indierock #albumoftheday #musicoftheday #recordoftheday #nowplaying #nowlistening #music #webstagram #rock #singapore cvltyouths.wordpress.com
The Libertines - Up The Bracket (2002): I love how the first few songs sound like a early morning pub-brawl, and I'm glad to know the boys are back together again! 😍 #thelibertines #upthebracket #albumoftheday #musicoftheday #recordoftheday #nowplaying #nowlistening #garagerock #indierock #music #webstagram cvltyouths.wordpress.com
