Having become NME’s 2017’s Ones To Watch and releasing single after sensational single, The Big Moon’s debut album Love In The 4th Dimension is finally here. And oh my god, it was worth the wait. Switching in and out of both new and old songs, the London girls’ new album … Read More

Silver Eye by Goldfrapp

It’s been four long years since the last efforts of electronic duo Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory. After a swift change of direction into a world of strings and orchestra sound found on 2013’s Tales of Us, the duo has returned to synth heaven- formally known as Silver Eye -and, … Read More

Semper Femina by Laura Marling

2 years ago / 0 comments

I have to admit, it took me a couple of listens of Laura Marling’s, the twenty seven year old folk singer-songwriter and all round babe, latest album, Semper Femina, to really get my head around it. I had flashbacks to a fifteen year old me turning aghast from Marling’s third … Read More

Gang Signs & Prayer by Stormzy

2 years ago / 0 comments

This is the one album I have been baiting my breath for. With Stormzy vanishing without a trace from social media after being so interactive with his fans, I had no idea what to expect. Then out of the silence burst ominous billboards appearing around London, an advert during the … Read More

Divide is Ed Sheeran’s third studio album, and it’s safe to say after his explosion as a singer/songwriter there was a very real hype surrounding this album’s release. But as I and most people know, there is quite a divide in opinion of the star. So how does this release … Read More

Why Love Now by Pissed Jeans

2 years ago / 0 comments

Why Love Now, the newest and rather emotively-titled album from Pissed Jeans, is possibly their most accessible release yet. For many bands, that’s usually an indicator of a drop in quality as well, but I’ve found myself enjoying this album much more than the band’s more critically-acclaimed, abrasive works, such … Read More

Sleeping Through The War by All Them Witches

2 years ago / 0 comments

Sleeping Through The War is the most spaced-out and mellow album that All Them Witches have ever made, although I’m not sure that’s a good thing. To the album’s credit, as with all albums that the band has released, every track presented has its own individual take on the band’s … Read More

Flying Microtonal Banana by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizards

2 years ago / 0 comments

The psych-rock septet graced us with their ninth studio album this month. While staying true to their sound with lo-fi vocals and hypnotic guitars, Flying Microtonal Banana is also a rich fusion of Eastern influences, an album filled with complexity. From hand drumming techniques to Turkish horns that could charm … Read More
