EP Review – Fine Print – Fine Print

Fine Print Released August 28th Words: Nick Jacques This is the debut self- titled EP from electronica duo Fine Print.

Album Review: Rhodes – Wishes

Wishes Released September 18th 2015 Well it’s been a good while since I got to write an album review for my own blog and when this little beauty landed on my desk, in actual physical format, I knew it was a sign. Write something substantial god-damn it and do it for someone who you’ve loved … Continue reading

Just Listen: Frances – Let It Out

Frances Listen to Let It Out here:   With a vocal that is always instantly recognisable and due to Frances’ distinct tone she’s capturing hearts all over the place. New single Let It Go has been given some sort of pop production treatment – presumably to make it more radio 1 friendly or something and … Continue reading

Just Listen: NIMMO – Dilute This

Nimmo Listen to Dialute This here: NIMMO have recently released their new track Dilute This and it reminds me of early La Roux  – bleeps and bendy synths with a chorus that’s as catchy as a cold in winter. This might sound upbeat and fun but there’s certainly a darker sentiment that lurks in the … Continue reading

Freedom Released September 4th 2015 Words: Nick Jacques The Black Tambourines are part of the “Kernow Wave” (a term coined by NME) this is a scene which has emerged out of the sandy beaches of Falmouth, Cornwall which is also where TBT are from too.

Album Review: Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats

Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats Released August 21st 2015 Words: Gary Lambert Every so often you come across an album that has such an immediacy that you feel like you’ve heard and loved it before.

Maybug 2015 small

Just Listen: Maybug – Out to Sea

Maybug Listen to Out to Sea here:   Out to Sea by Maybug leaves listeners completely ensnared. His minimalistic approach to production and gentle use of electronic elements blending with guitar gives this song an incredibly dreamy and atmospheric feel. But – this song is not background music, his sincerity and smooth vocals are not easy to ignore. We … Continue reading

Just Watch: Wolf Alice: You’re a Germ

Wolf Alice Watch the video for You’re a Germ here: From the Grunge-rock girl-fronted band that everyone is talking about this year, Wolf Alice have released the grindhouse inspired video for their latest single You’re a Germ. What feels like a B-grade slasher follows the group through a series of hilarious gore-filled scenes and shows that the band … Continue reading


Just Watch: Jesse Will – Genevieve (Live Session)

Jesse Will Watch the Oak Sessions Video for Genevieve here: We first saw Jesse Will live at Liverpool Sound City earlier in the year following a steady stream of press he’s received since Taylor Swift herself tweeted about his cover of one of her tracks.

Just Watch: Tei Shi – See Me

Tei Shi Watch the video for See Me here: The nearly 6 minute long music video for See Me from Tei Shi is not for those with a short attention span. This is a piece for those who truly appreciate the art that can come from something as simple as a music video. Tei Shi blends elements of … Continue reading

Malpas - Rain River Sea - Front Cover

Album Review: Malpas – Rain, River, Sea

Rain, River, Sea Released July 31st 2015 Words: Jimmy Gallagher Rain River, Sea is a delicate traverse between pop and folk, the Brummy duo succeed in capturing elements of all three, and in turn, the imagination right from the first notes of this debut record. Carefully programmed synths coat the acoustic strings that feature prominently in … Continue reading


Just Listen: Deaths – Voices

Deaths Listen to Voices here: Deaths have delivered a haunting and thoughtful track in Voices, laced with light and steady percussion, dreamy vocals and even a few unexpected brass instruments. The song is melancholic in theme yet is strangely uplifting and very very chilled in tempo and melody. It is both atmospheric and incredibly compelling. … Continue reading

night flowers

Just Watch: Night Flowers – Sleep

Night Flowers Watch the video for Sleep here: You may be forgiven if you think you have gone back in time to somewhere around the early 80s when you watch this because that’s pretty much exactly what they’re going for. The video is a perfect match for the colourful dreamy vibe from the sweet vocals … Continue reading


Just Listen: Varsity – Cult Of Personality

Varsity Listen to Cult Of Personality here: Chicago’s Varsity have released their new track Cult Of Personality and it somehow ended up in my inbox thanks to one of the band’s diligent searching – Thanks Pat! The band have dropped this mid-paced indie track which has somewhat of a DIY vibe about it, some dame … Continue reading
