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.

The production of this mellow-funk track compliments Continue reading “Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White – Look at What the Light Did Now / Single Review”

Metallica – Hardwired / Single Review

I’m writing this as I listen to it for the first time.

I won’t mention the snare…I won’t mention the snare……. Continue reading “Metallica – Hardwired / Single Review”

The Divine Comedy – Foreverland / Album Review

Fascinating.

I don’t say that lightly.

I’m fascinated at how fresh this album sounds within the Continue reading “The Divine Comedy – Foreverland / Album Review”

Two Door Cinema Club – Bad Decisions / Single Review

mmmm…I was going to do a review for the trio’s (now there’s technically five of them) come back single ‘Are We Ready’ a few weeks ago…mainly cause I had such strong opinions of it and if I’m honest not overly positive ones…but the more I listened the more my opinion changed especially with the addition of the fantastic music video.

I must say I really Continue reading “Two Door Cinema Club – Bad Decisions / Single Review”

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.

I’m quite hooked in then….bam Continue reading “Jake Bugg – On My One / Album Review”

PAWS – No Grace / Album Review

2012’s release Cokefloat saw Paws display to us their unique ability to write simple punk songs that were catchy and and interesting. The darling, Sore Tummy being a perfect example.

The Scottish trio last week released their third album, No Grace, a considerably rougher and more confident record. With Mark Hoppus Continue reading “PAWS – No Grace / Album Review”

Cabbage – Dinner Lady / Single Review

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

Cabbage are that band well and they have just released their new single Dinner Lady talking about possible real Continue reading “Cabbage – Dinner Lady / Single Review”

Band of Horses – Why Are You OK? / Album Review

I have been so excited for this release since I heard about it a few months ago. About 4/5 years ago I would have cited these lads as one of my favourite bands.

The intro track is a slow and contemplative piece with interesting use of electronics and an old radio sample but Continue reading “Band of Horses – Why Are You OK? / Album Review”

Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa – Kush Ups / Single Review

Oh come on. Changing push ups to kush ups. Another trap song talking about rappers smoking weed. How does this stuff continue to sell in such high volumes?

We know these guys smoke weed, it’s all they ever speak about. Continue reading “Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa – Kush Ups / Single Review”
