Today, we are introducing you to The Lemon Twigs, with their second full-length album ‘Go To School’, a sixteen-track musical, telling the story of an adopted chimp named Shane who is raised by his human parents, Bill and Carol. Intrigued? We thought so! Find out more inside…
Few bands can pull off sounding like their music is from a different era without sounding satirical or crass. However, Austin rockers White Denim have proved that they have skills and imagination in abundance. As a result, their new album ‘Performance’ sounds like it has come straight from the 70s.
If you haven’t yet heard of Mitski, you soon will. The American-Japanese singer songwriter is slowly taking the world by storm with her intricate compositions, marvellous vocals and poetic lyrics. ‘Be The Cowboy’ is her fifth studio release, and serves to prove that she is not a one trick pony.
If you asked me to describe The Beths in brief, I would have to reply that they are possibly the most perfect example of how sometimes, cutting off all the fatty excess of fuss and frills of a record will leave you with the best results.
Two years after their last release, James yet again return to the attention of music fans with their 15th studio album, ‘Living In Extraordinary Times’. The band is now an eight-piece, so theoretically the album should pack a punch. Does it though? Find out more inside…
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!
Jellies, the new album from former Bees Aaron Fletcher and Tim Parkin, is a pleasant, refreshing slice of 1960s summer pop, but not quite tuneful enough on the one hand or experimental enough in the other to qualify as great.
When asked about reviewing Bodega, my initial research showed all the usual buzzwords: ‘fun’, ‘thought provoking’ and the one term that nearly made me laugh my latte through my nose ‘exciting’. To that person I ask, exciting?! F**k me, we have different definitions of excitement!
Are ‘The Academy Is…’ the forgotten heroes of Emo? Back in 2006, ‘Panic! At The Disco’ was their support act and singer William Beckett featured in multiple FOB videos and songs, which surely gives them the credentials? Well, regardless, they’re still our next contender for Teen Angst Anthems…
Sometimes it is easy to forget that pretty much every band worth their salt had to have their humble beginnings as just a local act, including the The Arctic Monkeys!
