Swimming Tapes – Morning Side Words: Amy Butcher Have you ever listened to a song that instantly transports you to a nostalgic summer memory?

Album Review: Fontaines DC – Dogrel

Album Review: Fontaines DC – Dogrel Words by Gary Lambert There has been considerable hype about this Dublin band and what they could do, so I think most of our music world has been waiting for Dogrel to drop going on the amount of Happy Dogrel Day posts I saw on release day. This is … Continue reading

Album Review: Cassia – Replica

Album Review: Cassia – Replica Words by Gary Lambert I’ve got an idea. A strange idea, but an idea nevertheless. Copies of Replica should be given away with the purchase of a Fitbit. Why? Because it makes you go for a walk. Or at least it has done for me. After a first listen to … Continue reading

Album Review: Clean Cut Kid – Painwave

Clean Cut Kid – Painwave Words: Rob Connor You may or may not be aware that we are in the throws of a shipping container revolution, these large iron vessels can now become fully blown homes, cafes, boutique clothing stores and many more weird and wonderful applications.

Album Review: Lucy Rose – No Words Left

Lucy Rose – No Words Left Words: Sammy Sadler Real, raw and ridiculously fantastic were the first three things that sprung to mind on my first listen of Lucy Rose’s fourth studio album ‘No Words Left’.

Album Review: Anteros – When We Land

Anteros – When We Land Words by Gary Lambert Now this is an album I have waited quite some time to listen to. In fact, ever since I heard Drunk for the first time, I’ve loved Anteros – and especially loved that song. It was with considerable disappointment that I saw Drunk had been left … Continue reading

Album Review: What A Time To Be Alive – Tom Walker

Tom Walker – What A Time To Be Alive Words: Gary Lambert This is a bittersweet review for all of us at Popped Music. This is the moment that we have to admit that Tom Walker, one of our blog favourites, is definitely not one of our little favourites, but instead he is on course … Continue reading

Album Review: Pom Poko – Birthday

Pom Poko – Birthday Words: Nicholas Jacques Now here’s a band that you will be hearing about for some time to come. Pom Poko, hailing from Norway, release their debut album ‘Birthday’. A searing slice of nouveau indie-rock with a taste for galloping staccato riffs topped with unorthodox yet playful theatrics.   The 4-piece met … Continue reading

Album Review: Foxtrap – Foxtrap

Foxtrap – Foxtrap Words: Nicholas Jacques This is somewhat of a personal event for me reviewing this band’s debut album. I might have mentioned in previous reviews that I discovered Foxtrap (then known as The Baltic States) at a £2 gig at Liverpool’s famous Parr Street Studios on a dark cold night several years ago … Continue reading

Album Review: Queen Zee – Queen Zee

Queen Zee – Queen Zee Released 8th Feb 2019 Words – Nick Jacques  The first thought that came to me when I saw a picture of this band was “erm, they’re from Liverpool??” because they really don’t look like they are, but in a good and positive way, obviously. Queen Zee look like they have … Continue reading

Album Review: Red Rum Club – Matador

Red Rum Club – Matador Words and Photography: Gary Lambert Since the moment a few years ago I walked into Black Lodge Brewery and heard Red Rum Club, I’ve been in adoration of the sound they create.

Album Review: Manic Street Preachers – This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours (Remastered)

Manic Street Preachers – This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours Words: Sammy Sadler  I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for Manic Street Preachers for a long time now. I think it started when I first heard ‘Your Love Alone Is Not Enough’ and ever since I’ve found myself dipping in and out … Continue reading

Album Review: Estrons – You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough

Estrons – You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough Words: Nicholas Jacques  This is the long awaited debut album from Welsh trio Estrons.

Album Review: Black Honey – Black Honey

Black Honey Released 21st September 2018 Words: Gary Lambert Christmas Day happens once every year so you don’t have that long to wait.  The first time I saw Black Honey perform live, it was three years ago.
