THE AL­BUM

Orig­i­nal Glas­gow out­fit Primal Scream’s 11th al­bum, Chaos­mo­sis, smoothly slides out this month, and, as we’ve come to ex­pect, it’s a fu­ture­think­ing Pandora’s box of in­flu­ence. Ex­pect fan­tas­tic flashes of New Or­der, coun­try jan­gles, gospel tints, glit­ter­ing elec­tronic stac­catos and a cameo from Sky Fer­reira – all gar­nished with Bobby Gille­spie’s gritty, breathy rock’n’roll zeal. Avail­able March 15

THE GIG

Strad­dling el­e­ments of rock, synth-pop and brood­ing new wave-y el­e­ments, Mel­bourne’s City Calm Down has been not-so-qui­etly as­cend­ing into sta­dium band-to-be. The crisp drums, dance­able jams and emo­tive vox of the fourpiece’s de­but al­bum, In a Rest­less House, were made to be heard live, so when the lights go up on the band’s first ma­jor tour this month, you’ll want to be there. Syd­ney, Mar 31, Apr 1; Bris­bane, Apr 2; Mel­bourne, Apr 7, Apr 9; Ade­laide, Apr 8; Perth, Apr 15-16

THE DOCO

We’re over­look­ing the ‘share a bed with me Michael’ in favour of cel­e­brat­ing the ge­nius that was young MJ – a man who’s falsetto and groove on Off The Wall would set the tone for the next four decades of pop. Su­per­fan Spike Lee traces this in his new doc­u­men­tary, Michael Jack­son’s Jour­ney from Mo­town to Off the Wall, with help from Phar­rell, The Weeknd and Mark Ron­son.
