Just Watch: John Joseph Brill – A Place To Drown

John Joseph Brill Words: Elena Katrina The sounds of John Joseph Brill are no new noise to me, they’re rather a thing of comfort,  despite,  more often than not, the lyrical content is less comforting. Here JJB is joined with a female vocalist whose tone and notes are in total contrast to Brill’s give A … Continue reading

Just Watch: Bloxx – Curtains

Bloxx Words: Elena Katrina I admit, I never thought that I would fall in love with a song named after a household item such as Curtains, but Bloxx have done it. First listen I was in, fully in. Yes, I have made a full on commitment to Curtains and possibly a borderline blog crush is … Continue reading

Just Watch: White Fever – Sands

White Fever Words: Elena Katrina Let White Fever slowly but surely weave their magic upon you with their new track Sands. It’s captivating in its delivery; with hypnotising layers of vocals and it’s atmospheric, drawn out soundtrack. There’s something a little eerie about the whole affair but I can’t keep myself from listening, over and … Continue reading

Just Watch: The Orielles – I Only Bought It For The Bottle

The Orielles Words: Charlotte Minett You know the feeling when you buy a drink with the sole reason being that is has a sick bottle and then you realise that it tastes shit, and if you’d have known that you’d have bought another? Well that is exactly what the Halifax trio, The Orielles’ new track … Continue reading

Just Watch: Zola Jesus – Soak

Zola Jesus Words: Nick Jacques It’s been 4 years since Zola Jesus (aka Nika Roza Danilova) released new material. Her last outing was the album Taiga and now she is back with this sumptuous electro gothic-tinged monster from her forthcoming 6th album Okovi ( Slavic for shackles, yeah I know you were all dying to … Continue reading

Just Watch: Estrons – Strobe Light

Estrons Words: Nick Jacques It takes a lot for me to get hyped about bands these days. For me they don’t genuinely come along that often because the media big them up so much it hurts and there are so many bands out there that it sometimes feels like the scene gets saturated for too … Continue reading

Just Watch: Honeyblood – Walking At Midnight

Honeyblood Words: Julia Grantham Honeyblood are a very impressive female duo from Glasgow, Scotland. Having been together just five years, and taking time out to study, these women have toured with none other than Courtney Barnett and Foo Fighters. Of the name of their band they are quoted as saying: “Honeyblood is a mixture of … Continue reading

Just Watch: Liam Gallagher – Wall Of Glass

Liam Gallagher Words: Gary Lambert Starting off with a mix of guitar, heavy bass drums, and harmonica like the bastard son of Swamp Song, Wall of Glass ,Liam Gallagher’s first proper solo offering reminds us in three and a half minutes exactly why we need him. The sneer in his voice might be a comedy … Continue reading

Just Watch: Lucy Rose – Is This Called Home

Lucy Rose Words: Tara Matthews Ahead of her third album Something’s Changing, Lucy Rose recently released track Is This Called Home and now the utterly gorgeous video is out to accompany it.

Just Watch Alex Hulme – Family Tree

Alex Hulme Words: Gary Lambert Alex Hulme’s latest release, Family Tree, has an oxymoronic feel to it. Throughout the three minutes the verses feel both sparse and modern, yet the chorus manages to build into a deep, textured blast which has the structure of very traditional folk music, possibly even religious, but with the power … Continue reading

Just Watch: Glass Caves – Swim

Glass Caves Words: Leander Hobbs Two years after the DIY success of Alive, Glass Caves are back with another single packed full of natural Northern charm. Swim sees the band dive into something a little more dark and atmospheric. The unmistakable voice of Matthew Hallas is affecting. The grit is still there but it has … Continue reading

Just Watch: Tear – Begging

Tear Words: Julia Grantham I couldn’t resist the opportunity to review this latest track from Tear when I had the chance. Having discovered them in the autumn of 2015 via Tim Burgess on twitter-they’re signed to his label-I reviewed an earlier song of theirs and this current one Begging is just as deliciously dark and … Continue reading

Just Watch: Maximo Park – Get High (No I Don’t)

Maximo Park Words: Nick Bewes I’ve been playing Maximo Park’s music on the radio for over a decade and the new material is as good as anything they have done in that time. The second single from new album Risk to Exist is called Get High (No I Don’t). The press release says the new … Continue reading

Just Watch: Bear’s Den – Greenwoods Bethlehem (Live)

Bear’s Den Words: Elena Katrina Bear’s Den are no longer one of my new bands that no one knows about and while a part of me is seriously made up that they’ve done so well, there will always be a little bit of me that dislikes having to share them with so many people. I’ve … Continue reading

Just Watch: The Bay Rays – Satisfaction

The Bay Rays Words: Elena Katrina The Bay Rays are filling a bit of a musical hole in my life with this track Satisfaction, and that hole is the kind of sounds that Kings Of Leon used to give me back in the early days. You’d be forgiven at the beginning that it was them … Continue reading
