The Wedding Present
Fans who go to the Clean or the Go-Betweens for love might go to the Wedding Present for infidelity: Singer-songwriter David Gedge is the Robert Cray of indie pop, and two related bands (the Lost Pandas, Cinerama) more or less sundered on his romantic relationships, providing additional material. This year's digital download-only "The Thing I Like Best About Him Is His Girlfriend" is a typical Wedding Present title, preceding a momentously recorded eighth studio album of everybloke melodies, snapping drums, and power-drone guitars, El Rey (Manifesto), this one produced for maximum thwack by returning engineer Steve Albini. With Dirty on Purpose. 21+.
