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…

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…

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…

MARILYN MANSON / WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE

It was widely reported yesterday that Marilyn Manson had unveiled a brand new single ahead of the release of his upcoming tenth studio record ‘Heaven Upside Down’ and it’s as brutal, aggressive and dark as he’s ever been before. With elements of punk and a desperately tweaked vocal ‘We Know Where You Fucking Live’ is a…

WOLF ALICE / BEAUTIFULLY UNCONVENTIONAL

Wolf Alice, in perfectly consistent form, continue to stamp their mark on 2017 as the campaign towards the release of their upcoming album ‘Visions Of A Life’ grows stronger, more exciting and reassures the point that their debut success was not a fluke. Wolf Alice have released three singles ahead of the new LP which is set…

30 SECONDS TO MARS / WALK ON WATER

Jared Leto and his band, 30 Seconds To Mars have unveiled, in the past few hours, a patriotic, hopeful and extremely grand ode to the USA and the optimism of a better future. ‘Walk On Water’ has a huge sound despite minimalist instrumentation considering it’s a creation by 30 Seconds To Mars and yet its…

MR JUKES / LEAP OF FAITH FEAT DE LA SOUL & HORACE ANDY

We reported earlier this year how Bombay Bicycle Club frontman had gone his own way, reinventing himself under the moniker Mr Jukes, and releasing his own debut album, ‘God First’ back in July. Well, with the album now released and a string of material doing the rounds and garnering positive reactions all around, but in the…

THE HORRORS / SOMETHING TO REMEMBER ME BY

Everybody’s favourite Essex indie-psych five piece have released more new music ahead of the release of their upcoming new album ‘V’ and ten years after they released their now iconic debut LP ‘Strange House’  they may be getting set to unleash their best work yet. If new single ‘Something To Remember Me By’ is any indication, the new…
