Year of no Light

Bombay Bicycle Club frontman Jack Steadman - with a new name Mr Jukes - is joined by the relatively unknown East London rapper Barney Artist on the laid-back hip-hop groove 'Check the Pulse'; Manzanita combines surf guitar, garage rock and Latin American cumbia and guaracha on the uplifting 'Shambar'; 'The Angel of 8th Ave' by Gang of Youths is just some straight rock'n'roll; 'Alètheia' is just some straight - post-metal, by the French collective Year of no Light.
