Just Listen: The Jagged Skies – Judas

Jagged Skies – Judas Words by Gary Lambert Judas is the debut release of The Jagged Skies, and for an opening salvo  carries some weight. It is obvious from first listen that this is a track which has been thought over long and hard, and rehearsed until the sound was right. Obviously the writers of … Continue reading

SXSW With: Boy Azooga

This track, Temporary High, shows off a number of those talents as the song was written, performed, recorded, and produced by her. This one-woman-band approach gives Temporary High a tremendously clean feel of … Continue reading

Just Listen: Dantevilles – Bloomin’ Flowers

Dantevilles – Bloomin’ Flowers Words: Gary Lambert It’s a good thing, a very good thing, when you listen to a track for reviewing purposes and when it finishes you replay it immediately. It’s even better when it takes you four listens before you decide to move on to something else. This is exactly how 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. There’s still an eerie starkness to it, a gritty melancholy but more musicality. Joe’s haunting, wailing notes are beautifully tinged with pain and the bass lines offer a … Continue reading

From the singles I had heard, phrases like “post-punk” and “sparkling synths” seemed … Continue reading
