A stunningly good debut from lynchpin of the Bury St Edmunds scene.
Tune-Yards' 3rd album still playful but produced
It’s more a mismatch of noises that clash together to eventually form a somewhat pleasant sound.
Blitz Kids have succeeded in continuing their roll of high quality albums which I think is safe to say excuses the delay they’ve had in releasing the album.
They already have their own loyal followers drooling at their every move and it’s no wonder as they don’t half knock out a good tune or three.
A sound that’s as crisp and fresh as a sharp frost on a winter’s day as the wind blows in, from over the Shropshire hills.
Good build-up, but missed the point
They're longing for a flight, we're longing for them to broaden their musical horizons.
Go on this musical journey - you'll love it.
The sound is a folky post-rock, sharing roots with Sigur Ros, Of Monsters & Men and Mugison, albeit with a large dose of Talk Talk.
The picture it paints is of a band destined to implode almost from the beginning, due to personality clashes, the pressure of success and opposing ideas of what The Clash should be.
Musical serenity drenched in happiness.
A great clash between the music scene of now and then.
Well crafted, well played but ultimately a little too middle of the road to truly excite.
Gothy post-punk is in rude health.
Seventh album from Constellation's most interesting if challenging band. Hard listening but rewarding.
Skindred are one of those bands who refuse to be pigeonholed and their fifth album is no different. More polished and produced than previous releases, 'Kill The Power' is still full of their signature rasta-metal stylings.
Post-rock heroes hit the peaks with their most consistent album yet.
For full satisfaction, ignore the players and concentrate on the music.
Esmerine add Turkish & Middle Eastern influences to their already beguiling post rock
She really wins me over with her penultimate track Dust & Coal, an infectious little guitar lick alongside solid harmonies.
The pioneers of stoner-rock have returned to reclaim the beard-and-mirror-shades look from ZZ Top. Dave Wyndorf and his crew are back with 'Last Patrol', Monster Magnet's tenth studio release, comprising nine tracks of classic material.
Efforts to spice things up with the addition of Flux Pavilion works especially well on the swashbuckling ménage a trois of Gold Teeth
Innocents is an incredibly accessible album, most likely because of the subtle but frequent comments on the nature of being human.
A welcome return from one of the least fashionable but most passionate bands that these islands have produced. Brings back happy memories of human pyramids at 80s festivals without relying on past glories.
'Masks' is a mix of melodic female vocals and, for the first time, male metal screaming. Eyes Set To Kills riffs are heavy, the drums thundering, the vocals strong.
The 1975 are hitting the scene hard. Let’s hope their hitting hard enough to get a reaction.
It’s not all space-aged eccentricity!
They’re not just four guys playing music anymore, they are Rock Stars.
Deaf Havana are back with their new album, Old Souls, and they seem to be leaving their more raw sound with their old album as they progress into a more polished, radio-ready sound.
Lanegan takes us back. Way back.
Perhaps mental illness had taken its toll on Hjaltalin more than I thought, as it was a schizophrenic start, and it didn’t promise to get any more cogent.
From their first LP; The Optimist in 2001, London folk duo Turin Brakes will release their sixth album, entitled “We Were Here”, but will it live up to their past decade of music?
The songs aren’t as personal as previous efforts.
Enough hidden charm to warrant the multiple listens it might need.
The album is a good mix of country infused melancholy melody and alt indie epics.
This is the most vital, essential, urgent music I’ve heard in a long time.
With a name like Tropical Popsicle, I really wanted to like this band.
This is so much an album they wanted to make, not explorations of a blueprint set out for them, and it makes an interesting listen.
