Just Listen: Chappaqua Wrestling – Football

Chappaqua Wrestling Football Words by Jim Mumby By honing their musical prowess, the guitar-focussed indie-rock soundscapes of recent times are a far departure from what I felt was flat-sounding four-track EP1.  It seems Chappaqua Wrestling have managed to shake off any influential contagions, to emerge unscathed and invigorated with a much more professional and richer sound of … Continue reading

Just Listen: K I T – Warm

K I T Warm Words by Gary Lambert The debut release of K I T does not feel like that of a singer trying to find his voice and feet.  Instead we are treated to a pop song that is rousing, mature, and sounds like the sort of track an artist would put out to … Continue reading

Maisie Peters Sad Girl Summer Words by Ashleigh O’Neill In response to her 2019 EP release Maisie Peters has returned with what I would say is her best track as of yet.  The title of Maisie’s latest single, Sad Girl Summer, suggests her usual emotional ballad style track that will tug on your heart strings, … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: The Lottery Winners – The Meaning Of Life

The Lottery Winners – The Meaning Of Life Words: Jim Mumby Leigh’s indie-pop flag wavers The Lottery Winners let loose a title track that evokes their much less optimistic perspective on life, than say the jazz-hop rhymes of Soul II Soul’s free spirited vision three decades ago.
