Single Of The Week: James Blake – Limit To Your Love

Watching James Blake’s musical career transpire has been thoroughly exciting to watch. Going from lonely bedroom student producer to something of a modern day musical genius in such a minute space of time must come with shortcomings, however all seem to be avoiding Blake.

Film Review: The American

The American sees the re-emergence of photographer turned filmmaker Anton Corbijn, the man that brought us the rather wonderful Control, a biopic of the pained Joy Division singer Ian Curtis.

Admiral Fallow was not a new name to us here at CITR, as we interviewed the band a while back shortly after they had released their […]
