2 months ago / 0 comments

Since placing 2nd in 2009’s X Factor, Olly Murs has had a fruitful career. With four UK number-one singles and albums, alongside various TV presenting roles, the ‘cheeky chappy’ persona seems to have taken Murs rather far. However, with the release of his sixth album, You Know I Know, the … Read More

A week from its release LANY’s sophomore work Malibu Nights reached number 36 on the Billboard 200, a huge step from the LA based band who only released their debut album last summer.

MØ Creates Lush Worlds of Beauty in New Album, Forever Neverland

3 months ago / 0 comments

MØ’s latest record is pretty interesting as far as pop music goes, but I wonder if it’s a step in the wrong direction for the Danish singer. I’ll say this though: it’s not as good as No Mythologies to Follow. Indeed, I often find while listening to this new record … Read More

Disturbed Release New Album, Evolution

3 months ago / 0 comments

Let’s start with what this album does right, because there isn’t much to say in that regard. The main attraction is frontman David Draiman’s voice, which seems to have only improved with time.

Connan Mockasin’s ‘Jassbusters’ Is Strangely Beautiful

3 months ago / 0 comments

Mockasin’s album is borne out of a lo-fi short film created by the man himself, which is in short about a failing student trying to impress his creepy music teacher. Jassbusters is the teacher’s band, intended to sound novice, but instead comes to us as a mellow, lamenting project, glimmering … Read More

3 months ago / 0 comments

A compelling and energetic live act, Australian indie-funk band Parcels have made their name on danceable disco hits that prioritise fun. On their self-titled debut, however, the band offer up an inconsistent collection of tracks that only hint at their potential. Despite being largely well produced, the energy from the … Read More

Kurt Vile is Back With New Album, Bottle It In

3 months ago / 0 comments

‘One Trick Ponies‘, one of the singles prefacing Kurt Vile’s new album, serves as both a bit of preemptive self-critique and a statement of intent. “I’ve always had a soft spot for repetition” croons Vile in the song’s chorus. And, yes, we know the drill: countryfied Yacht-rock with daydreamy, rambling … Read More

3 months ago / 0 comments

This isn’t a review. This is a thank you. There are rare moments in life where you listen to a song and instantly connect, to the point that you lie awake, unable to go to sleep until you’ve listened to it just one more time. There are even rarer moments … Read More
