EP Review: Callum Pitt – Poisoned Reveries

Callum Pitt Words: Sammy Sadler Easily one of my favourite artists at the minute, North East-based Callum Pitt has been on my ‘ones to watch for 2019’ for a little while now and he’s got something for everyone.

EP REVIEW: Neverlanded – Fluffy Unicorns United

Neverland – Fluffy Unicorns United Words: Nicholas Jacques What do the words “Grunge music” evoke in your head? A genre that saved rock music from its death in the late 80s/early 90s? Responsible for churning out many bands in the mid to late 90s and saturating the market? Or creating some of the most gifted … Continue reading

EP Review: Spector – Reloaded

Spector – Reloaded Words: Sammy Sadler I’m a big fan of Spector and everyone knows it. Even they know it. Eight years ago I coined myself as ‘Sammy Sadz – Queen of Spector’ and I’m not even a little bit ashamed.

EP Review: Pizzagirl – Season 2

Pizzagirl – season 2 Words: Megan Berridge Pizza seems to always be delivered by a male courier. Actually, hang on, this applies to most takeaway food services. Ordered a Chinese? Yep, that’s a man knocking at the door. Fancy an Indian? Great! Another opportunity to have a man on your doorstep. Let’s be honest, feminism … Continue reading

EP REVIEW: Strange Cages – Silver Queen

Strange Cages Words: Nicholas Jacques This 4-piece from Brighton dish out a range of sounds that are somehow both entrancing and uncompromising at the same time. This is no more apparent than on the last track ‘The Leeches, The Fakers’ where the climax of the song is so unnerving that it has a rather pungent … Continue reading

EP REVIEW: Saint Charles – Saint Charles

Saint Charles Words: Samantha Sadler William Jones, AKA Saint Charles, is very much someone you’re going to want to listen to if you haven’t heard him already.

Opening … Continue reading

EP Review: Baby Strange – Extended Play

Extended Play Released 14th July 2017 Words: Gary Feeney Given that Baby Strange’s debut album was only released in September last year and that they had a number of live dates in the following months, the announcement of a brand new single, Motormind, and a 6 track E.P. earlier in the year came as a … Continue reading

EP Review: Birch – Not Human

Not Human Released 9th June 2017 Words: Julia Grantham This EP is bursting with imagery and symbols of our reliance on ‘cell phones’; our devouring of ‘movies’ and all because of this digital age. However, disguised as a collection of love songs, or not, one cannot deny the undercurrent of politics, whether that be a … Continue reading

Brother EP Released 3rd March 2017 Words: Nick Jacques Finally some new music from The Baltic States has emerged in 2017. This is their first release since their Boxes EP from back in 2014 so it is quite a relief, if not a slightly overdue, to have them back releasing new material. Their new release, … Continue reading

EP Review: Stags – Night Time Voices

Night Time Voices EP Released August 2016 Words: Nick Jacques Straight out of London comes the foursome Stags. They recently played the Lock Tavern in Camden and on the strength of this EP alone, I am kicking myself for not going as they really serve up a treat for the senses, especially if blues-rock is … Continue reading
