TV Review: Atlanta

When Donald Glover dropped Because the Internet in 2013, its’ perverseness and brutal description of consumption and how the internet transformed the dynamics of modern society (for better and for worst.)

Album Review: Cleopatra // The Lumineers

Three years after the release of their debut album, The Lumineers have returned with their second record, and boy, is it an interesting one. The immediate dilemma that arises when clicking play is resisting the overwhelming urge to play the first three tracks on an infinite loop, because they’re just so damn good. ‘Sleep On […]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

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

Track Review: Madman // Flower Fellow

17 year-old London-based singer-songwriter/flower crown aficionado Olivia Colette – under the moniker Flower Fellow – has crafted a state of quiet wonder in ‘Madman’, making use of the plaintive, fathomless hollow of her voice to create a cathartic, utterly transportive elegy to the fettered states of the past. [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/213670277″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] A lightly tempered strain of lilting chords and gently […]Read More

Film Review: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Spare a thought for poor Ethan Hunt. Now onto his fifth Impossible Mission™ – having already survived sandstorms, drone strikes, room-sized pressure plates, scaling the outside of the world’s tallest building (Dubai’s Burj Khalifa), generally being shot at, actually dying no more than once, and being directed by John Woo (sorry) – the question is inevitably raised: just how […]Read More
