Album Review: Frances – Things I’ve Never Said

Things I’ve Never Said Released 17th March 2017 Words: Elena Katrina Well it would be remiss of me to not cover the debut album by Frances having reviewed almost all of her singles since day dot and having seen her live progression from solo artist in all of the sense of the word, to working … Continue reading

Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect Released 6th January 2017 Words: Gary Lambert The sixth of January is usually the sign for the tree and decorations to come down and for you to prepare for a month of hard times as the excess of Yuletide catches up with us all.

Album Review: Palace – So Long Forever

So Long Forever Released 4th November 2016 Words: Elena Katrina Palace are probably best known for their more laid back rock blues than they are for their album opener Break The Silence. The track not only does exactly as the title suggests but does it passionately, at times frantically and above all beautifully. It says … Continue reading

Album Review: Feeder – All Bright Electric

All Bright Electric Released: 7th October 2016 Words: Nick Jacques When I think of Feeder, it instantly takes me back to my GCSE days when I listened to Polythene on heavy rotation on my Walkman.

Los Niños Sin Miedo Released: 26th August 2016 Words: Gary Lambert There are certain record labels that not necessarily guarantee your enjoyment of their releases as they span a variety of genre, but always guarantee a level of quality.

Album Review: Teen Canteen – Say It All With Kiss

Say It All With a Kiss Released 9th September 2016 Words: Gary Feeney Having only heard a few of TeenCanteen’s songs before being sent their debut album, I was intrigued by some of the quotes on the press release which accompanied it.

Album Review: Baby Strange – Want It, Need It

Want It Need It Released 2nd September 2016 Words: Gary Feeney When I first wrote about Baby Strange for Popped early last year, I made the grandiose (but entirely justified) claim that their live shows were probably the closest thing you’ll see these days to the likes of the Libertines and the Strokes in their … Continue reading

I’m Not Well Released 19th August 2016 Words: Gary Lambert Welcome to The School of Black Foxxes. First year is a study in American rock 1991-2010 in the form of debut album I’m Not Well.

Album Review: All Tvvins – IIVV

IIVV Released on 19th August 2016 Words: Gary Lambert With the exception of The Strypes, my record collection has been somewhat devoid of music from Ireland over the last few years.
