My Light // Mika Jones

Beautiful dark song by Mika Jones, vocally reminiscent of Pearl Jam and 80s/90s punk, though there is a real surf vibe in the guitars and bongos. Pretty perfect, it's dark enough but not hard to listen to, in fact, it's pretty comforting! As it progresses, it becomes more experimental with various different parts, rock to...

Tyrant // Pozzi

Bob Dylans protest music has had far reaching consequences and evoked discussion and change. This has inspired many new artists to fight for what they believe in and I think it is really admirable for anyone to stand up for what they believe. Saying that, Pozzi has managed to do this but do it with... 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 →

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 →

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 →

Inver // FRMR

FRMR is creating what seems like new-school folk music taking inspiration from traditional folk and newer electro sampling tracks. Inver is multilayered and is incredibly well textured. Everything seems to be a quite obscure choice but really does work. The pulsing bassline, the haunting children singing, the strings and almost random drum fills. Like nothing... Continue Reading →

The Moon // Lost Arrows

Simon and Garfunkel and Jefferson Airplane sprung to my mind as soon as i hit play on this track. I may be entirely off the mark but it's just how I heard it. It's got that kind of easy chill vibe that's really calming. It's a song that I think could quite easily go down... Continue Reading →

Long Life // Waiting For Smith

Prepare yourself for a massive influx of chill and happy vibes. Usually this kind of warm folk in the vein of Noah and the Whale and Fleet Foxes doesn't do it for me but the whole 'everything is going to be alright' feeling did it. Interesting fact: Harry Lloyd was formerly a ski instructor in... Continue Reading →

Reckless // Lisa Kenny

A bit rockier than her usual folk vibe, I'm really taken by how different Lisa Kenny's latest offering is, her vocals are really, really strong. I'd really want to see her perform live just to experience it live. Secondly, and most importantly as this always impresses me, the track was entirely recorded by multi-instrumentalist Lisa....
