Liam Gallagher returns with his debut solo album “As You Were”, 26 years after starting his life-changing band Oasis. This album comes after his own claims on Twitter that he’d never do it because he’s “not a cunt” – yet, after a summer of playing festivals and a tour announcement, … Read More

‘Visions Of A Life’ by Wolf Alice

1 year ago / 0 comments

Wolf Alice’s debut full-length, My Love is Cool, was an album to define the times. This is a band who have brought together people of wildly different musical tastes, without intentionally crafting their sound to universality – a process which usually leads to dull, meaningless songs. On their second album, … Read More

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.

Daughter’s latest release, Music from Before the Storm, is quite different to their 2016 album Not to Disappear. This is because this album was actually written as the soundtrack to the video game, ‘Life is strange: Before the storm’. This is an interesting move for the folk/indie band. Explaining the … Read More

Architects’ Unexpected Return with ‘Doomsday’

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. It was the band’s most commercially successful release to date, and undeniably the heaviest, most impressive record of their career so far. But after the loss of founding guitarist … Read More

‘Freudian’ by Daniel Caesar

1 year ago / 0 comments

The second hand on your clock ticks slowly, the setting sun lingers greedily on the horizon, the receding pools of daylight cling to existence; all the while Daniel Caesar’s Freudian spins, plays, reverberates in the background. An album that seems to extend effortlessly into eternity, Freudian barely ever exceeds walking … Read More
