Since their last release, Kansas City-based indie pop band Shy Boys have come a long way. They’ve changed labels, making that all-important leap to Polyvinyl Records and added to their lineup. ‘Bell House’ is the result of those changes, showing that growth and experience can go a long way in the music industry.
Thinking back on the greatest festivals performances of all time, a few come to mind straight away. Queen at Knebworth Park in 1986, followed by Oasis there ten years later to name just two. But what about the ones that go down in history for all the wrong reasons? More specifically, Green Day at Woodstock Festival 1994!

In the three years since their last studio release, Halestorm have had one hell of a journey. Writing and then scrapping a whole album’s worth of work meant that their fourth record almost didn’t make it. ‘Vicious’ is the result, and it’s been worth the wait.
Working whilst the country is having a massive heatwave isn’t ideal. All you want to do is laze around after a long day, possibly to some mystically relaxing music. Well, we can’t change the weather, but we can advise you listen to ‘Opal’, the new album from Vinyl WIlliams!
