Shtick! EP // Mighty Magic Animal

Mighty Magic Animal are from Salisbury. Home to a Cathedral and famously stacked stones. I lived there for a while. This EP is not from that place, this EP is at home in the 1990s in Seattle. It is a solid mass of noise and energy, opening on 'Run' with its stop/start but constantly kicking... Continue Reading →

In Waiting // Crossroad Crooks

Something different now! Totally going to have to mention the Soundgarden edge because it's going to hit you pretty hard. This is just like a brick of energy hitting you. I think I must be a huge sucker for the huge vocals and dirty guitars, pulsing drums and the tight as they come bass/drum combo... Continue Reading →

I Feel No Pain // Rénovations

Hello again, I hope you all are doing well during this prolonged stint of being trapped indoors. It's not all doom and gloom though. For your consideration, here are Rénovations all the way from sunny Edinburgh. Although in reality all three are from France, Italy and Romania which seem a lot more exotic - anyway,...

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...

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 →

Chameleon // Seven Spies

Fuzz, big massive fuzz. Awesome walls of sound and layers and layers of guitar, vocals, keys and loops. It's like the first time you heard 'New Born' but with a sinister edge. The most obvious comparison would be Muse, the massive but very loose guitar work is Matt Bellamy all over but there is so... Continue Reading →

Fractal Pterodactyl // GrassRoof

Its great when you come across something thats just purely rock, like when I first heard Wolfmother or Biffy Clyro. GrassRoof have made a slowly creeping rock anthem, it gets under your skin with its creeping murky guitar, reminds me of the album Siamese Dream from Smashing Pumpkins. The Ozzy style vocals are so well... Continue Reading →

Albatross // Animal Ghosts

I wanted to share the song Repress with you from the new album by Animal Ghosts but unfortunately I can only embed Spotify and Bandcamp links so my second choice (though it was close) is Albatross. Find the new album here, I really recommend you to download it. Anyway, so I have a massive soft... Continue Reading →
