Just Listen: The Amazons – Doubt It

Just Listen: The Amazons – Doubt It Words by Gary Lambert Following on from the step up that was Mother, The Amazons have done it again with a slice of anthemic grunge which seems to have been cut straight out of the Reading Festival main stage. If you have neighbours, I would suggest you do … Continue reading

Just Listen: Cassia – Replica

Cassia – Replica Words by Gary Lambert Well it seems that with the release of ‘Replica’, we have now reached the point where a band from northern England can drop a track that sounds like debut album era Vampire Weekend covering Musical Youth’s classic ‘Pass The Dutchie’.

Just Listen: Spinn – Believe It or Not

Spinn – Believe It or Not Words by Gary Lambert It seems like whilst they’ve been in the studio recording their debut album Spinn have been doing some scientific experiments.

Just Listen – Gen and The Degenerates – Weatherman

Just Listen – Gen and The Degenerates – Weatherman Words by Gary Lambert Gen and The Degenerates are without doubt one of the most formidable up and coming live acts around, but with this release they grab their usual blood and thunder punk rock and distill it into something far more heady.

Just Listen: Foals – On The Luna

Foals – On The Luna Words: Megan Berridge ‘Antidotes’ was the first CD I ever bought for myself. Yeah, my mum had got me the ‘Pop Party’ and Kylie Minogue albums before, but that was the first album I spent my own money on. It’s a very personal thing for me. The first band I … Continue reading

Just Listen: Amber Run – Stranger

Amber Run Words: Elena Katrina After the short, stark hint at a return with Haze, back in April, Amber Run return once more with new track Stranger.
