Abby Clarke/ September 21, 2018

The Blinders are a three-piece alternative rock group originally from Doncaster but now based in Manchester who have been making a lot of noise in the up and coming music scene. Their debut album “Columbia” is out on Friday the 21st of September and incorporates an in-your-face sound similar to Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes with influences from Nick Cave

Album Review: Miles Kane- Coup de Grace

Ben Standring/ August 23, 2018

Last Shadow Puppets member and celebrated indie rocker Miles Kane steps out of the shadows on assured third album. There are some artists who are able to live a relatively peaceful and mundane lifestyle, opting to produce and release new material at a pace of their own choosing. Then there’s Miles Kane, the enigmatic and ever excitable troubadour, who first

Low In High School – Morrissey’s as Controversial as ever…

Sadie Agg/ November 17, 2017

After much anticipation, Steven Patrick MORRISSEY brings us his first album in 3 years; along with a list of UK tour dates much to our surprise (the 58-year old previously said that his last UK tour may be his final one). After hearing Morrissey’s first single, ‘Spent the Day In Bed’, the direction the album would take was unclear, though

Alex Marriott-Mills/ October 23, 2017

A full 10 years after their second album release and Indie rock group Milburn are back with their third album, ‘Time’. After their second album failed to live up to the billing of their first, as so often is the case with indie albums, ‘Time’ represents an opportunity for the band to make a comeback and show how far their

GUN – ‘Favourite Pleasures’ Album Review

Archie Banks/ September 4, 2017

Scottish rock band GUN, most famous for their excellent cover of the  Cameo hit ‘Word Up’, release their follow-up to 2015’s ‘Frantic’ later this month. With the band one to note for their memorably strong live performances, the focus when looking at new releases from such a band has to be where the songs will slot into a live set.

The Rifles – Unplugged.. Album Review

Archie Banks/ May 5, 2017

The Rifles might just be one of the most underrated bands in the UK.   There, it’s been said. No, they don’t sell out arenas, and no they don’t have 15 number one singles to their name. But if you critically examine each album they have produced, each one different in its own right, it is very difficult to fault

Alt-J Track Reviews: “3WW” and “In Cold Blood”

Emilio Cruzalegui/ April 5, 2017

Five years ago, four students from Leeds were just starting to break through the indie scene, having only released a handful of singles including tracks such as “Tessellate” and “Fitzpleasure”. A Mercury Prize, an Ivor Novello Award and various BRIT and Grammy nominations later,  Alt-J have become one of the biggest British indie bands around and perhaps one of the

Review: Ed Sheeran- ‘Castle on the Hill’ and ‘Shape of You’

The Mic/ January 20, 2017

England’s national treasure, our ginger, down-to- earth, ordinary Joe turned global phenomenon Ed Sheeran has made his return to music after exactly one year off, after he found himself “seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes.” (If that’s not inspiration for us 21st century infatuated kids to do some soul searching, I don’t know what is.) His

Album Review: Danny Brown- Atrocity Exhibition

Emilio Cruzalegui/ October 10, 2016

Danny Brown has always been one of the most eccentric rappers in today’s hip-hop scene. I’ve always found he had somewhat of a Jekyll and Hyde quality about him; capable of a chilled out, socially conscious track immediately followed by an outrageous hedonistically mindless party banger. That’s probably just proof of his versatility but for some reason, that stark contrast
