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…

Flashback / …2004 in Review

Flashback!! It’s our new feature which will allow us to review albums, singles and other stuff from the past. The first thing we’ll be looking at is 2004! Why 2004? Well; this week sees Hot Fuss by The Killers become 10 years old. Yep. We feel old too. To celebrate, Stu reviewed Hot Fuss and…

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…

The Sounds / Weekend

2013 was an amazing year for music, with strong debuts, and massive returns. 2014 is already shaping up to make 2013 look weak in comparison, as it’s unleashed some incredible music already, and it’s promising us some things to really look forward to as well. But one extremely exciting event for me in 2013 hasn’t…

The Rifles / None The Wiser

In late 2013 Mojo20 were lucky enough to be offered an interview with a band that we’d been listening to and enjoying for years, since 2006 probably. I remember when I first heard of the Rifles, and it was all by chance, after wandering into a club in Coventry to find that there was a…

Kings of Leon / Mechanical Bull

The Kings of Leon, and the kings of Southern rock in general have returned this year and on the 24th September 2013; their latest and believe it or not, sixth studio album was released. The latest album has immediately represented a consolidation of every single evolution KOL have been through and where this band has…

Haim / Days Are Gone

Somewhere around the middle 2012, Mojo20 first showcased this trio of girls on our new releases feature, and when we first heard ‘Forever’ which they’ve credited as the song that caught everyone’s attention and got them as far as they’ve come, we also fell in love with the song, the subsequent EP and of course…
