NO ENCORE #232 | TOP 5 SONGS IN ADS / IDLES REVIEW

The musical revolution will be televised as NO ENCORE‘s Dave Hanratty and guest co-host Zara Hedderman get lost in the vivid world of songs in ads for this week’s top five. It’s a busy episode in general with lots of news, a real-time reveal of the Mercury Prize winner and a spirited discussion on UK not-punks IDLES.

ACT ONE [5:07]: Rolling Stone provides both list and op-ed gold, Dave is fierce proud of his heroes, Zara struggles with hot drinks, and Thom Yorke feels especially cheerful.

ACT TWO [28:58]: IDLES have caused quite a racket over the past few years thanks to raucous live shows and unflinching, opinionated guitar-driven missives. Third studio album Ultra Mono arrives amidst something of a backlash. Let’s get into it.

ACT THREE [54:08]: When we say ‘songs in ads’, you’ll likely immediately think of many of our selections here. Dave and Zara celebrate a simpler time when 30-second TV snippets led to musical glory. For some, anyway…
