Samhraí Imithe // Liamosino

Today being Sunday, the day of rest, I thought it'd be fitting to write up Birmingham's Liamosino. Psych and 60's hippie vibes absolutely drip from this track, I think it'll be a definite hit with the counter-culture crowd. Interesting side note, I read that Liamosino is 'one of the only people to successfully pull off... Continue Reading →

Hold Me Tight // Hoodooleen

Hoodooleen is Robert James Hudulin (pretty smart way to come up with a band name, very cool) coming to you from Australia via Croatia. He creates calming but incredibly dramatic, larger than life show tune-esque indie pop. That is what makes Hoodooleen different from pretty much everything else I have heard this year, it's so...

Interview // Edge of Desire

Edge of Desire hail from Guildford and create huge atmospheric sounds, they bring to mind newer Muse, Radiohead and in vocal style a bit of Wild Beasts - so all round a really tight mix of well thought out...

Damnation // Year of the Dog

I have previously reviewed Red Rum Club and there are a lot of similarities but also... Continue Reading →

Coffee Break // Tom Spencer

What do you get if you mix The Cribs, The Libertines and Pavement? Something that closely resembles Tom Spencer. Proper rock that with a sense of angst that is a strangely missing from indie recently. There are some real standouts on the new album Liverpool, the titular track being a slow ballad, that is showcasing... Continue Reading →

Fight Like A Girl // Raye Zaragoza

As a massive fan of Camera Obscura, Raye Zaragoza is like coming home. The lazy dreamy quality of horns and steel string with a brilliantly powerful and honest vocal style is a perfect match. Enthralling Indie Folk that has an honesty and innocent happiness that everyone will love. It's over all too soon but I... Continue Reading →

Bushes // Marty Went Back

Now, if you are in the mood for some really off the wall Tame Impala meets The Cramps meets The Pixies type of lo-fi indie, you have found your band. Probably one of the strangest layered tracks I have heard in a while. The chantlike lyrics enter into a swirling unrelenting chorus and a massive... Continue Reading →
