Just Mustard - Heart Under

Monday, May 30th 2022

Although the intention of the album was to feel the experience of driving through a tunnel, Heart Under takes you to so many other places (some of which you’d rather keep locked away). It’s a terrific second album.

By the end of my first listen to ‘From 2 to 3’, it became clear that the band have crafted a soundscape that is uniquely theirs.

Florence + The Machine- Dance Fever

Saturday, May 14th 2022

I implore you to explore this album for yourself and become immersed in this new fairytale world Welch has created with this Dance Fever character. I for one don’t see myself leaving it anytime soon.

PEANESS – WORLD FULL OF WORRY

Friday, May 13th 2022

On this album, Peaness don’t do many thing particularly new but by heck they do it well and the songwriting is of an exceptional standard.

Friday, May 6th 2022

The album closes with a piano and the sound of rain in 'Saint Michael'. Retrospective and atmospheric rather than apostolic in its tone,

EAT YOUR OWN HEAD – NECK-DEEP IN THE BLYTH

Thursday, May 5th 2022

These guys can play – hell, these guys can play – but, like the very best math-rock, prog and jazz, technique never takes precedence over the song.

Loose Fit - Social Graces

Wednesday, May 4th 2022

From start to finish this is an absolute peach of an album, a juicy slice of post-punk, pop perfection.

Sta Prest - Shadow Boy

Wednesday, April 27th 2022

Susanna - Elevation

Sunday, April 24th 2022

If you are not already familiar with the work of Susanna Wallumrød (or, come to that, Charles Baudelaire) I would implore you to give 'Elevation' a listen. It is most certainly an album that is all that I cannot leave behind.

C Duncan - Alluvium

Monday, April 11th 2022

Alluvium's sense of fluidity and pace continues in the cinematic harpsichord-led title track, whilst 'Earth' creates a distinctly retro revisitation of Colin Blunstone on a 1970's Alan Parsons concept album

Wallows - Tell Me That It’s Over

Stereophonics - Oochya!

Wednesday, February 23rd 2022

Kristine Leschper - The Opening Or Closing of A Door

Wednesday, February 23rd 2022

This is a stripped-back work that is overwhelmingly enhanced by the beauty and fragility of Leschper's vocals, creating a naturalistic and folkier feel to previous works, and producing an authentic sense of natural impermeance.

Fatherson - Normal Fears

Tuesday, February 22nd 2022

Ultimately the album shows an expressive side to the band, one that brings delight and hopefully a new swarm of fans while keeping the old ones happy

Seven Seals - Owl Cage
