Sunday Slaylist: Reading & Leeds Festival 2014

August 10th, 2014

ReadingLeedsSundaySpotifySlaylistThrashHits

Bloody hell, there’s an awful lot of nonsense on the Reading and Leeds 2014 festival line-up, isn’t there? I mean, we know this isn’t a bona fide heavy music festival like Download and Sonisphere, but sweet flippin’ Jesus is there some pony stinking up the bill this year. That’s because it’s enormous – literally 100s of bands – but, as such, there are also a whole load of bloody excellent bands and this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist cuts through all that and brings you the very best of the heavy stuff that you can find if you sniff around the schedule a little bit.

2013 AOTY Thrash Hits Albums of the Year

The end of the year is here. Pretty much everything that’s going to be released is now out, and barring any late breaking oh-my-God-is-that-actually-happening style news stories, 2013 is done and dusted. And with the convenient if entirely arbitrary transition from one year to the next a mere 48 hours away, we’re dedicating the final Sunday Spotify Slaylist of 2013 to the records that we loved the most this year.

Thrash Hits albums of 2013 Editors raziq rauf hugh platt

Due to the fact Raz and Hugh run things at Thrash Hits, their opinions are the most important. Yes there’s an overall TH Top 20 Albums of 2013 and there’s a list of the individual contributors’ favourite albums, but their opinions are also the most correct. That’s why they’ve got their own post where they can explain their own favourite albums of 2013 without being sullied by democracy.

The Thrash Hits Cloudcast 001: Records of the year (so far) 2013

Thrash Hits on Mixcloud

This week Raz and Hugh got together to talk about their favourite albums of 2013 so far, but rather than do it as a podcast where we can only talk about the music and not actually play any (because, y’know, licensing laws and all that), we figured we’d put our choices out there via Mixcloud, where we can mix our talk with loud music as much as we damn well please.

If we had to describe Tom Doyle, we probably would come up with a better description of him than “the fastest phone user in the world”. But he was quick enough to snag a ticket for Paramore’s super-exclusive sold-out-in-seconds micro-show at the Highbury Garage, where the band (who let’s be honest, normally play to thousands) showcased their 2013 material – and some old classics – to a crowd of less than 600 people.

Six Things we learned when we saw Paramore play the Highbury Garage:

Getting the basic facts out of the way, it’s been four years since the last album from Paramore. Four years that has also seen the departure of their key songwriting component, the Farro brothers, and four years in which Paramore have become by far and away the most plagiarized band within contemporary rock.

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

With Reading and Leeds Festivals over and done with, the UK summer festival season is officially over. Well, it’s over as far as we’re concerned. This week, Raz and Hugh look back on their highlughts and lowlights from Reading and Leeds respectively, as well as taking a look at this week’s top news stories: the new album announcement from Deftones, and Sylosis bunking off from a European tour with Devin Townsend and Fear Factory to go gallivanting around the USA supporting Lamb of God.

Festival Republic have tonight officially confirmed the first batch of 41 names playing their flagship festivals – Reading & Leeds Festivals. Although their arguably the UK’s biggest festivals taking place in 2012 (since Glastonbury is taking a year off), admittedly most of these names will be of little or no interest to the majority of our readers here at Thrash Hits, but there are a few heavier highlights in among the indie-fodder.

Sunday Spotify Slaylist: Really Commercial Reading & Leeds Festival 2010

August 22nd, 2010

How in the name of all that’s unholy did Reading and Leeds Festivals come around so quickly? The festival that traditionally marks the end of the UK festival season for those of the rock’n’roll persuasion (well, it did until Offset instigated their badass Hardcore stage) is next weekend – so it’s time for our annual Slaylist in honour of rock’n’roll’s most commercial piss-up in a field.
