TAYLOR SWIFT – REPUTATION

As one of the super powers in music over the past few years, of course it’s big news when Taylor Swift releases a new album and droves of fans will have shot out to buy the album today, or at least sat at home and streamed it anyway. ‘Reputation’ is Swift’s sixth studio album, released across…

VANCE JOY / LIKE GOLD

It sometimes really doesn’t seem fair to even associate a particular artist with one song. When it comes to Australian singer songwriter Vance Joy, it’d be so easy to say something dumb like “Christ, I thought he disappeared after Riptide”, and ok you’d have a point that the name Vance Joy has been scarce since…

LIFE – THE LOFT, LINCOLN

It’s been a couple of days since the widely successful 2Q festival in Lincoln this past weekend, and as you’ll know from our reviews of sets by Circa Waves and JAWS, Mojo20 were on hand to soak in as much music and atmosphere as was humanly possible. The band we’re here to talk about now…

CIRCA WAVES – ENGINE SHED, LINCOLN

So you’ll know by now that we attended the incredibly successful 2Q Festival in Lincoln yesterday and as would be expected for the day after an all day inner city, multi venue festival, here at Mojo20.com, we’re not feeling too wonderful. However what we do have on our side is the fantastic collection of memories…

JAWS – HOME NIGHTCLUB, LINCOLN

So if you’ve been anywhere near Mojo20’s social media over the past couple of hours… days… weeks…. well maybe months, then you’ll know that today was an extremely special day for our home town, Lincoln city, as 2Q Festival finally struck. After months of planning and anticipation, the day has ultimately come and gone, and…

FRANZ FERDINAND / ALWAYS ASCENDING

In 2013, indie juggernauts Franz Ferdinand released what became for many, or at least myself, the album of the year with ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’. They rewrote the rule book on indie pop music and managed to create an album that had wall to wall brilliance as each track stood out as lead…

SMERZ / HALF LIFE

It was at this years Lost Village festival that we discovered the wonder of Smerz. We were lucky enough to catch them live (you can find the exclusive gig review here) and fell in love with their minimal yet exciting electro flavour. Following the performance, we got a hold of their 2016 album ‘Okey’ which is…

FIRST AID KIT – IT’S A SHAME

I can only apologise to you and myself, for missing the boat entirely and only discovering today, the release of a brand new track by Swedish duo First Aid Kit. ‘It’s A Shame’ was unveiled late in the day, on the 28th of September (a week tomorrow) and snuck right by us. I can only…

WILD BEASTS / PUNK DRUNK & TREMBLING

It’s a shame nowadays that more bad news, or at least saddening news comes from the world of good music, while commercial darlings continue to dominate the radio waves and the charts, talented, skilled bands and musicians are taking the time to step away from the music world and pursue other things, leaving fans feeling…

REVEREND & THE MAKERS / THE DEATH OF A KING

It’s Friday, so not only is it the end of the working week but it’s the day of the week where new music is released in droves, and amongst the crop of veritable album releases this week features the brand new album by indie gods, Reverend & The Makers. The latest album ‘The Death Of A…

MORRISSEY / SPENT THE DAY IN BED

Big news for fans of politically charged and socially observant music, as everyone’s favourite indie pioneering hero, former frontman and vocalist of The Smiths, Morrissey has returned with brand new material today and after being unveiled to the world this morning, ‘Spent The Day In Bed’ has certainly got people talking.  Not a stranger to…

STONE SOUR / ROSE RED VIOLENT BLUE (THIS SONG IS DUMB & SO AM I)

So we waited for it, patiently, anticipating its arrival. We then got it, and we loved it and it continues to give and give. When Stone Sour returned with brand new album ‘Hydrograd’ released through Roadrunner records, we knew the wait had been worth it as they unveiled a masterpiece of tremendously heavy metal and catchy, hooky…
