Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White – Look at What the Light Did Now / Single Review

I for one love Flo Morrissey’s music yet before listening to this was unfamiliar with Matthew E. White’s output. It took me a couple of listens to get used to Flo’s vulnerable tones in such a different atmosphere than what I’m used to hearing.

Jake Bugg – On My One / Album Review

I was never really that big a fan of Jake Bugg. I felt like I should have liked him but I just couldn’t…to be fair I didn’t try too hard. Bugg’s new album On My One starts with a sullen folk/blues song that has be transported back to early recordings with Dobro’s and stompboxes.

Like discordant neo post-punk? Like humorous/distasteful lyrics, repetitive riffs and rough and ready production? Like bands from Manchester…ok you get it.
