Sticking the word ‘youth’ in your band name is always tricky. Thurston Moore’s in his sixties, for crying out loud. Here, we open with Youth Sector, a new one on us, with a Devo/Talking Heads kind of twist we rather like. Black Midi have an EP of covers out, so we’ve gone with the King Crimson one. Old chum Faithful Johannes tours the charity shops in his inimitable style. The Wave Pictures continue to excel, as if you expect anything less. And there’s all sorts in the middle for you to try.
