‘Heaven Upside Down’ by Marilyn Manson

11 months ago / 0 comments

Once upon a time, Marilyn Manson was America’s number one public enemy. Today, America has much bigger things to worry about, and The God of Fuck’s future in the country’s pantheon of counter-cultural icons is unclear. In a post-Trump world, Heaven Upside Down’s litany of guns, sex and death is predictable … Read More

‘We Were Raised Under Grey Skies’ by JP Cooper

11 months ago / 0 comments

Seemingly springing out of nowhere last year when he featured on Jonas Blue’s ‘Perfect Strangers’, JP Cooper has actually been putting music out since 2012. After much anticipation, his debut album We Were Raised Under Grey Skies has proved his long struggle for recognition has paid off, the work effortlessly … Read More

‘As You Were’ by Liam Gallagher

12 months ago / 0 comments

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

12 months 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

‘Wake Up Now’ by Nick Mulvey

12 months ago / 0 comments

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. Endless spiralling patterns colliding and overlapping within a kaleidoscope of colour, the markings that adorn Wake Up Now’s cover hint at infinite possibilities and variables, … Read More

12 months ago / 0 comments

Mount Kimbie are returning with their third studio album following 2013’s melancholic Cold Springs Fault Less Youth. The transatlantic Love What Survives, conceived between London and Los Angeles, marks the duo’s movement into more melodic, upbeat territory and strengthens their ties with close friends and long-term collaborators James Blake and … Read More

‘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. 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

‘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

All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell by Pvris

1 year ago / 0 comments

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. However, in the three years since the release of their debut album White Noise, the Massachusetts trio have … Read More
