Wolf Alice

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Wolf Alice have unveiled their own beer, a 4.3% craft lager called ‘Yuk Brew’. Which isn’t really a good name for a drink you want people to put in their mouths, even if it is a nod to a song called ‘Yuk Foo’. Whatever, the beer will be available at the band’s upcoming shows in Manchester and London later this month.

• Sigur Rós have added another hour of previously unreleased songs and remixes to their ‘Liminal’ playlist.
