Album Review: The Prettiest Curse // Hinds

Hinds have always been a couple of years ahead of their time. It is nine years since the original ‘Deers’ duo formed in Madrid and six since ‘Bamboo’ made its ripple. The eventual foursome that would become ‘Hinds’ had found two years in between to perfect their brand of garage rock, latching onto trends laid […]Read More

Song of the Week: See How They Run // Whenyoung

Discovering new music is easily one of the finer things in life. Much like finding a £10 note in your pocket or realising that your eyebrows are actually so on fleek today, music is a great way to keep people happy. In a time where individuals settle for the same morning commute to do the […]Read More

Track Review: Robots // October Drift

Not much is known about October Drift due to their surprising lack of an online presence (one they say is down to wanting their music to “spread organically” as opposed to “spoon feeding people”), however this bewildering mysteriousness only further fuels their overall intrigue. They’ve somehow managed to sell out half the shows on their debut tour on word […]Read More

Track Review: Not Enough // Spares

Packing a punch from the very first bar, four-piece Spares are set to be the next band to dominant the vibrant Liverpool music scene and progress onto a hot indie circuit. Being together for about a year in their latest line up, the band have already gathered a fair following on social media and look set to […]Read More

Track Review: Red Navels // Fleets

Well well well. The last time I reviewed a Fleets song was 5 months ago, and it was the hippy-vibed, poppy ‘Babylon’. Those with long memories will remember it was The Indiependent song of the week, and deservedly so. Now Fleets seem to have changed their style completely with new track ‘Red Navels’.

Track Review: In The Summertime // Mike Coykendall

Though ostensibly about an unreciprocated summer love – all heady, hot-tempered, and lost in a haze – Mike Coykendall‘s ‘In The Summertime’ makes sure that, even whilst lamenting at a distance, you’re having wicked fun doing it. Clocking in at only one minute fifty-three seconds, the track evokes the whirlwind nature of a carefree summer, all scuzzy, […]Read More

Single Review: Pony // Strange Cages

After clicking on the link to Strange Cages’ Soundcloud page to listen to latest single ‘Pony’, out July 20th on Strong Island Recordings, the first thing I notice is the hashtag ‘psycho-sleaze’. That’s exactly what ‘Pony’ is – a two minute long scratchy, psych track that is fuelled with raw vocals and aggressive, pulsating drumbeats. […]Read More

Live Review: Hinds // The Forum, Turnbridge Wells, 21.06.15

In preparation for their appearance at Glastonbury later this summer, the quartet have embarked on a mini-tour of the UK which has also seen them play the British Summertime Festival […]Read More
