Track Review: Royal Jelly // Deap Vally

California’s hard-hitting fuzz-rock duo Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards, aka Deap Vally, are back on the wagon. Their return comes piping-hot, detailed by scorching new single ‘Royal Jelly’ – which is all set to head-up 2016’s follow-up to debut full-length Sistrionix . Deap Vally are as their Twitter bio rightfully states, ‘Bad. Ass.’ That description has never been more true to their […]Read More

Track Review: Junk Food // Findlay

Findlay doesn’t hold back on shit she doesn’t agree with, so it should come as no surprise that her latest installment of grit-pop ‘Junkfood’ voices gripes on a few things. In fact the only gripe it doesn’t seem to have is with having a good time (see the fantastic video below) there’s food all over the place, an […]Read More

EP Review: Charlemagne // Blossoms

Arguably the buzz band of 2015, Stockport five-piece Blossoms just go from strength to strength. Debut EP Blown Rose came out in July and stirred up quite a buzz ahead of their autumn tour.

Live Review: Blossoms // O2 Academy, Liverpool, 09.10.15

It’s been a long time (too long) since I was last packed into the smaller room of Liverpool’s O2 Academy for a gig. It’s a lovely intimate, yet still relatively big time setting, despite being stupidly sweaty for sell-out shows. Tonight one of the hottest bands in the UK, Blossoms rolled into town as part of their pretty huge UK […]Read More

Live Review: The ‘NEU’ Tour – The Big Moon, Vant

The tour operating on a rotating headline was kicked off in Liverpool by Strokes […]Read More

‘Let You Know’ is the latest catchy number from St Helens buzz band, Stillia. The quartet – made up of Jack Bennett (lead vocals, guitar), Connor Moran (lead guitar, vocals), Johnny Waring (bass, vocals) and Matty Bennett (drums) – have been creating quite a name for themselves on the North-West scene over the last 18 […]Read More

Album Review: Dodge & Burn // The Dead Weather

The Dead Weather are back. Dirtier, fuzzier and more un-hinged than ever before. The super-group consisting of Alison Mosshart (The Kills), Jack White (The White Stripes), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs) pack punches all over the place on album three, Dodge & Burn. Their formation has long been based on […]Read More
