Veil // Holsky

A fine blend of the Maccabees, Gary Numan and White Lies. Holsky has created an incredible, slow dancing, atmospheric, 80s tinged masterpiece. The visuals used set the scene, but the track really sends you back, this track could be the soundtrack to an emotional part of an 80s movie. The slow beat with the reverb... Continue Reading →

Quietude // Lime Juice

Ready to let something beautiful into your weekend? Try this out for size. Retro stylings of Lime Juice, the obvious comparison would be Tame Impala but to be honest, I think this draws further afield. There is some real chilled jazz here, especially in the break down section. Those keys are awesome, the drums have... 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 →

Hold Me Tight // Hoodooleen

Stay Awake // Pinkm’n

This band is quickly becoming one of my personal favourites, the sounds they make have an evolutionary edge to them like Blossoms, you can see the roots but they have created something more than just replicating. So this track in particular has the definite sound of The Strokes, but the whole EP stretched all across... Continue Reading →

Lucky After Dark // The Van Allen Belt

Probably one of the more bizarre things I have heard in a while. Like a 60s masterpiece of obscure advertising Americana tuneage. I really can't put my finger on it, its weirdly mesmerising, I really do think that this is something everyone needs to listen to and discover on their own. Thoughts, comments etc etc,...

Bad Decisions // The Strokes

The Strokes. Love them or hate them, they are seemingly omnipresent. I like the Strokes, they have a way of just being there, easy to listen to, easy to sing along to. When I first heard this song (much like the rest of their records) it took a little while to get it. So, it... Continue Reading →
