The Smashing Pumpkins // Siamese Dream (Remastered)

Monday, January 9th 2012

Wakey! Wakey! // Almost Everything I Wish I'd Said the Last Time I Saw You

Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

"Basically it’s Coldplay meets Keane meets John Barrowman, in a crazy melange of love songs directed in a rather insincere fashion..."

Herman Dune // Strange Moosic

Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

"It’s like a lovely, innocent return to the indie pop of the late 90s; if you liked The Auteurs, Pavement or the Divine Comedy, then you’ll love this band..."

David Lynch // Crazy Clown Time

Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

"More pointless than thumbing in a floppy the album is bereft of invention, variation and is appropriately summed up in its Ronseal-sponsored centrepiece ‘Strange and Unproductive Thinking..."

Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

Roots Manuva // 4everevolution

Thursday, October 13th 2011

"Regardless, I liken the phenomenon to that of eating doughnuts... impossible to eat without licking your lips." - The new Roots Manuva album has strange effects on Tommy Dog...

Martyn // Ghost People

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

"Even if you love house music, do you really want to get hyped up and frantic just before you empty the rubbish bin..." - Tommy Dog contemplates the appropriate setting for dance music.

"Ah dae like a sang sung en a Scortesh ucksent! Yeah, I’m the King of phonetics…"

Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo // Almanac

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

"Twee flute? Check. Terrible plucked banjo? Check. Song about a witch? Yep, got that one covered too." - Something tells us BBV ain't a fan...

Justice // Audio, Video, Disco

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

"Their second full-length release starts with a He-man like wet dream. All heroism and might, it sets the tone for an album produced with comedy and inventiveness."

Lisa Hannigan // Passenger

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

"The album could easily see a second Mercury nomination for Hannigan, and will certainly see her step out from beneath Damien Rice’s shadow in full."

Feist // Metals

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

"Let’s just hope Diaggeo or the likes aren’t in the market for a new slice of Feist." - Emma hopes the new Feist record isn't sullied with commercialism.

Plaid // Scintilli

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

"Overall, Scinitilli presses a lot of my buttons, and you should let it have a poke at yours too." - See why Plaid have poked Bill's buttons...

You Me at Six // Sinners Never Sleep

Tuesday, October 4th 2011

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band // Peyton on Patton

Tuesday, October 4th 2011

"For those down with the bass, the slide and the wail, it’s a real Blues explosion." - Lizz reviews Peyton on Patton

Emika // Emika

Thursday, September 29th 2011

"She says her main inspiration is the Dr Who theme tune (can’t argue with that one)." - Lizz reviews the Emika debut LP.

The Duke Spirit // Bruiser

Wednesday, September 7th 2011

It takes a strong-willed man to tell the hypnotic beauty of Liela Moss that you want a little less of anything from her, or indeed her band, The Duke Spirit...

The Drums // Portamento

Wednesday, September 7th 2011

Rip it off fast like a plaster. Perhaps that’s the best way of approaching that ‘difficult second album’...

Ed Sheeran // Plus

Wednesday, September 7th 2011

It's hard to appreciate just how far Ed Sheeran's musical wave has swept across the world; he's always been so huge here that it's too tall to peek over the parapet...

Charlie Simpson // Young Pilgrim

Wednesday, September 7th 2011

Each song brings with it hints of different genres and its own set of emotion and feeling which is really what makes this album special.
