Just Watch: Da7 – Dopamine Fiend

Da7 Watch the video for Dopamine Fiend here: This completely and utterly arrested me upon the very first listen:  talk about mash the old with the new. It has delicious scuzz bleeding out, a vocal that hints at coy between the sexy, a beat that begs you to dance until you break your legs and … Continue reading

Album Review: Everything Everything – Get To Heaven

Get To Heaven Released 22nd June 2015 Words: Lauren Grigor This review has been delayed because I was rather busy seeing Everything Everything play Glastonbury – TWICE. An achievement which has only enhanced my connection to the band’s music and this album. In fact this review itself has evolved a lot since experiencing the music … Continue reading

Live Review: Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats – Manchester

Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats The Deaf Institute Manchester, June 21st 2015 Words: Gary Lambert The last time I heard of Nathaniel Rateliffe he was playing quite serious, somber music, which, to be fair, wasn’t exactly the chilled out evening’s entertainment I thought I needed on a boring Sunday night. Instead though Nathaniel and … Continue reading

Clean Cut Kid Listen to Twenty Years From Now here: Liverpool’s Clean Cut Kid have just released their debut track through new label Polydor, Vitamin C, and because they don’t want anyone missing out they’ve also made available the b-side; Twenty Years From Now.

Just Listen: ROMN – Collide

ROMN Listen to Collide here: If Glass Animals had a baby with Trent Reznor it might sound something a little like ROMN’s debut track Collide. All dark and industrial noises combined with a slight RnB feel of vocal melody. A track full of attitude that makes my shoulders give it some and then when the … Continue reading


Just Listen: Nova Heart – Lackluster No.

Nova Heart Listen to Lackluster No. here: Nova Heart is claimed to be the “Blondie of China” not sure how or why this has come to be said, or that I agree with it but none the less the current track Lacluster No.  The track itself has schizophrenic tendencies, with background mutterings that certainly add … Continue reading

Just Listen: Jack Garratt – Weathered

Jack Garratt Listen to Weathered here: Any track that can open up as though it’s about to burst into a gospel hymn and then totally flip it on it’s head and add in edgy beats and a sweet melody has instantly got my vote – well in this case it does. Weathered is the new … Continue reading

Lucy Mason

Just Listen: Lucy Mason – Seas Of Grey

Lucy Mason Listen to Seas Of Grey here: OK so before you go and get all excited, Seas Of Grey, isn’t actually a track that has anything to do with 50 shades of…. though if you chose to dissect the lyrics that way then you could possibly find times where you could make it fit. … Continue reading

young tide

Just Listen: Young Tide – NSFW

Young Tide Listen to NSFW here: On first listen of this, NSFW, the debut single from Young Tide, I was instantly reminded of Everything Everything, only with a harder punkier edge to the vocals. There’s that off kilter feel to the sounds, and similar phrasing to the vocals. It’s not at all a bad thing, … Continue reading

Free Track Alert: Flor – Warm Blood

Flor Listen to and download Warm Blood here: As ever Flor always seem to pop up just when I need them and always bring with them a piece of electronic-pop perfection. Light and airy this track, Warm Blood,  bubbles along gently before becoming something a little more meaty. But always providing serious chilled out vibes … Continue reading

love nor money

Freshly signed to Lost In The Manor, the female fronted band have been on our radar for quite some time so it’s really exciting for us to share this, their debut video. The … Continue reading

true noir

Just Listen: True Noir – Creation

True Noir Listen to Creation here: The rhythmic beat of the percussion in True Noir’s Creation is completely hypnotic and I’m in a trance with this from the get go. Yes that’s before those dreamy vocals even show their face. The combination of these plus the rousing guitars, that are all thrown together, create somewhat … Continue reading
