Perhaps the first hint as to the contents of Nick Mulvey’s latest album, Wake Up Now, is hidden amongst the layers of its striking artwork.

‘Concrete and Gold’ by Foo Fighters

12 months ago / 0 comments

Right from the intro track, you can tell this album is going to be a mess of poorly-executed radio-rock clichés. Or rather, it foreshadows it, because the first half of the record is actually alright, with the singles ‘Run’ and ‘Sky Is A Neighbourhood’ revealing solid, if not a bit … Read More

‘Music From Before The Storm’ by Daughter

12 months ago / 0 comments

Daughter’s latest release, Music from Before the Storm, is quite different to their 2016 album Not to Disappear.

1 year ago / 0 comments

Architects’ massive 7th album, All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, was always going to be a difficult one to follow up.

When it comes to being instantly recognisable, there aren’t many bands that can match Pvris, whether that’s in regards to their effortlessly chic black and white aesthetic, or their highly cultivated sound.

‘Rainbow’ by Kesha

1 year ago / 0 comments

The first line that Kesha sings on ‘Rainbow’ is “I got too many people I got left to prove wrong.” And yet, the album suggests that she knows she owes nothing to anyone – in ‘Hymn’ she asserts “don’t need no forgiveness”, and in ‘Let ‘Em Talk’ she cries out … Read More
