LAURA MARLING / SHORT MOVIE

One of the leading figures in contemporary folk music, Laura Marling has finally returned in 2015 with her fifth LP ‘Short Movie’, and it’s been a long and interesting road she’s travelled since her 2008 debut ‘Alas I Cannot Swim’. On a personal note, I’ve been a big Laura Marling fan since the release of…

DUTCH UNCLES / O SHUDDER

Throughout the ongoing narrative of popular music, the world has been presented with an array of incredibly eccentric minority groups, who have used the expressive confinements of the arts and music to catalyse their social factions towards others, resulting in the manifestation of larger eccentric cultures, sub-cultures and counter cultures. However, as of late, one…

Jack White / Lazaretto

It often becomes a talking point with friends in the pub or over a coffee, and it’s an interesting and valid point, but in 2014 and in this age we live in generally, there are only a handful of future icons, legends in the music world and names that will withstand the test of time…

Mojo20 Podcast #5

Last time we did a podcast, we reviewed Kasabian’s latest effort, 48:13. We weren’t alone in doing so and had special guest Matt Bristow. This time round, we asked Tom Kitchen (Back To Mono, Club Satisfaction) to join us who added a whole new level of music knowledge and views to the podcast. So, listen…

Royal Blood / Royal Blood

One of the most exciting releases of 2014 so far has definitely been the debut LP from the duo that’s caused no end of buzz since the beginning of the year, Royal Blood. When they first released debut single ‘Out Of The Black’ everyone and their dog began to fall in love with them and…

Jaws / Be Slowly

The day has finally arrived. Jaws debut album, Be Slowly is finally released today. It seems like ages ago when I first heard debut single, Toucan Surf and they instantly became favourites here at Mojo20. With their summer vibe songs and sounding like a modern-day Joy Division, there wasn’t anything we didn’t like. Over the past…

THE KOOKS / LISTEN

Do you remember when The Kooks were one of the biggest bands around? Yeah, me too. Just. Their debut album, Inside In/Inside Out was a huge success and secured their place at the forefront of the UK indie scene. Follow ups Konk and Junk Of The Heart were a little less successful to put it nicely. Granted, there was a few…

First Aid Kit / Stay Gold

2014 has already seen some exciting returns by some of the planets biggest names. One of the most exciting from a very personal perspective has to be for the release of the third studio album by Swedish Folk Americana beauties First Aid Kit. Since they showed the world that there should be no excuse for,…

Mojo20 Podcast #4

Hello! It’s been a while since we last did a podcast but we recorded this last week with special guest, Matt Bristow. He ended up being brilliant with his critique. Critique of what? Well, Kasabian’s latest album; 48:13! Just want to say that we recorded this on the GarageBand app and it was the first…

Kyla La Grange / Cut Your Teeth

Back in the summer of 2012, we launched Mojo20.com, expanding further on a previous two years of various club nights and general musical involvement in Lincoln. One of the first features we did as we ventured to go global with our modest little brand, was a new releases feature on which we showcased a few…

The Black Keys / Turn Blue

Erm, so… I don’t really know what to say. This review was always inevitable, and to be quite honest, I thought it’s content would be as well, and yet I feel nothing more than trepidation at the beginning of it. If you’ve followed Mojo20, and especially Mojo20.com, you’ll know that we don’t normally deal with…

PAOLO NUTINI / CAUSTIC LOVE

It’s taken a few weeks of deep concentration to figure out whether to write this or not. It’s taken a few years to figure out whether Paolo Nutini is a guilty pleasure of mine, or whether I should really hold my head high as a fan of his for a while now. It’s also taken…
