New: ATLAS – Hunter

The more I hear of London songstress ATLAS, the more I’m convinced that it’s simply a question of time before she explodes amongst the realms of the blogosphere. With her untouchably fragile vocals, yearning for understanding and a sense of belongng, Hunter may well be her most accomplished release to date. Again clocking in well […]

Summer Playlist #1 – Theme Park

Summer didn’t last long, then. The last couple of days may have heralded a return to the grey skies and light rain that we’ve come to expect from British summertime, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop having fun. To keep you in a sunny place, we’ve got you the first in our fortnightly […]

Introducing: An Blonds

Whatever you do, don’t try and Google search the UK’s An Blonds to see if anyone else has written about them, trust me, the results are far from pretty. Aside from scarring my eyes for life, their three debut tracks are inspired electro-pop numbers, drawing elements from both mainstream pop and early 80’s synth hits. […]

News: Bloc Party Announce Details Of New LP

Having spent the majority of the day counting down to the release of some news via their Twitter page, Bloc Party have now officially announced that their fourth record will be released 20 August via Frenchkiss Records. The news of the album, entitled Four, was accompanied by a short trailer (available below), featuring footage of […]

New: Friends – Home

Several months back I wrote Friends off as a one trick pony, but now it seems I’m having to revise my opinion on the Brooklyn group, with their new track Home being arguably their best release to date. A far shot from the god awful drivel that was last years hit single I’m His Girl, […]

New: Camp Counselors – Roman Blankets / City Streets

So as with many of the artists I write about, I have no clue whatsoever who the musician(s) behind Buffalo’s Camp Counselors are, all I know is that their two debut tracks are pretty special. Lo-fi synth led numbers, the five and a half minute epic that is Roman Blankets is remorseful, overflowing with longing […]

Introducing: 記號士 THE SIGN OF HUMAN

I’m going to be honest with you here, my Taiwanese is rubbish, some might even describe it as non-existent. Thankfully the language of music is universal, and Taiwan’s 記號士 THE SIGN OF HUMAN exploit this to it’s core. With their dark yet somehow alluring imagery and unfathomable name, they’re intriguing from the get go, and […]

New: Disclosure – Control (Feat. Ria Ritchie)

Disclosure have a knack of persuading extremely attractive female singers to provide guest vocals on their tracks. This new cut, co-written with the gorgeous Ria Ritchie is taken from their upcoming EP The Face and was made Zane Lowe’s hottest record earlier this evening. It’s insanely danceable whilst bringing their music to a new level […]

News: S Club 7 Perform On Australian TV

S Club 7 in their prime. The years have not been kind to 90’s ‘bubblegum’ pop group S Club 7. Amidst rumours of a full reformation and UK arena tours, the group, who had four number one singles, appeared on Australia TV on The Morning Show to talk about their short jaunt with Big Brovaz […]

New: M O N E Y – I’ll Be The Night

Photo by Julien Bourgeois With The Stone Roses reunion dominating the headlines, it’s worthwhile putting their much applauded ‘legacy’ into perspective, and the current crop of exciting young acts from Manchester certainly do. With PINS, The Louche and G R E A T  W A V E S dominating music blogs around the world, it’s […]
