Hit of the week: Alfie Templeman ‘Stop Thinking (About Me)’

16-year-old Alfie Templeman has revealed his second EP ‘Sunday Morning Cereal’ via Chess Club Records.

The EP follows popular singles ‘Like An Animal’ and ‘Stop Thinking (About Me)’ – a track that he’s also just released a video for, shot entirely on an iPhone as part of Apple’s new #shotoniphone campaign (watch below).

‘Sunday Morning Cereal’ was completely self-produced in his bedroom at home in Carlton, he plays every instrument heard himself apart from the trumpets heard on ‘Busy’, which were provided by his 12-year-old sister. The musical talent is obvs in the genes.

Favourite Gig: Eddie Vedder

You know Eddie Vedder as the frontman of classic grunge band Pearl Jam, who were just back in Barcelona in 2018 after a ten-year absence from our stages. And now he’s back on his own at the Palau Sant Jordi with a set list that includes his own songs (though he hasn’t released a solo album since 2011’s ‘Ukelele Songs’), Pearl Jam songs, and covers of tunes by different artists.

Divus Julius presents: Carolina Durante

The freshness and attitude of their songs has increased the popularity in just a few months of Madrid’s rock band Carolina Durante.

Their absolute anthems that speak of the day to day with tenderness, acidity and humour could be considered a mix between Los Nikis, Los Punsetes and The Jesus & Mary Chain. It’s her personal touch though, that has created hits such as “Cayetano”, “Niña De Hielo”, “El Himno Titular” and “Perdona (Ahora Sí Que Sí)” with Amaia. this summer in concert at FIB.

The muses of La Musa: Sleater-Kinney

Sleater-Kinney came crashing out of the ’90s Pacific Northwest riot grrrl scene, setting a new bar for punk’s political insight and emotional impact. Hailed as “America’s best rock band” by Greil Marcus in Time Magazine, and as “America’s best punk band ever. EVER” by Rob Sheffield in Rolling Stone, the band put out seven searing albums in 10 years before going on indefinite hiatus in 2006.

Sleater-Kinney brought their 10-year hiatus to a close with the release of their 2015 album No Cities to Love, and the band hasn’t slowed down since that release. After teasing that a new album would be coming in 2019 and that St. Vincent would be handling production, the trio returned with “Hurry on Home,” the first single from their upcoming album The Center Won’t Hold. Now, the band is back with the album’s release date, as well as as another new single called “The Future Is Here.”
