Can’t Help Myself // Solar Parachute

This is exactly what you need if you have been back to work this week. It's exactly what you need if you're still stuck indoors. So when I first heard this track I got a real Blood Red Shoes vibe but as it progresses you get swallowed by the massive bass, the atmospheric chorus, the... Continue Reading →

The Last Arcade // Jack West

Unsuspectedly electro, incredibly different and actually one of the best things I have heard in this vein for a while. So think of Peter, Bjorn and John meets Kraftwerk. The song breaks into a guitar led quirky, bouncy, muted tune where the vocals really take centre stage, the raspy meanderings through the verse are amazing... Continue Reading →

Tough Love // Sarah Martinson

From the beautiful but cold city of Edinburgh comes Sarah Martinson. She has just released her album Back To You on all platforms and she creates a massive mix of music. Branching from almost folk to jazz to pop to slightly experimental for example If We Knew, which is actually really quite bizarre in it's... Continue Reading →

Mouth Body // Jet Pack Dog

Now, I know this will be devisive, Jet Pack Dog are really, really different. It's like going back to my days at college when New Young Pony Club, Klaxons first album and Test Icicles were newly on the scene and it was a scary time for anyone that didn't know what this day-glo mass was....

Melancholy Boy // LOUD HOUND

This is a song of many sides. There are elements of electronic dance, indie pop, and a loud rock drum beat. It's mixed awesomly, the keys in the breakdown and the drums could be in an Ibiza summer hit. The whole package feels like it should be relaxing but it has a frenzy to it.... Continue Reading →

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

Massive guitar fuzz with a pounding bassline, just what you need for a Friday night right? 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... Continue Reading →

Damnation // Year of the Dog

Laid back, sleezy, bluesey, jazz is utterly incredible. I can't help but get the feeling of being in a black and white movie and feeling effortlessly cool while listening to Year of the Dog, which is a real achievement. I have previously reviewed Red Rum Club and there are a lot of similarities but also... Continue Reading →
