Foxes – Youth (Single)

Gabriella Ahmed/ October 28, 2013

Louisa Rose Allen, known to us as Foxes has released her new single Youth which has instantly drawn me into checking out what she’s done already.

Coasts – Paradise EP + Stay

The Mic/ October 27, 2013

Think sand and sea, sunburns and tan lines, bonfire and non-stop beach party. I will begin this with an apology. I have just discovered Coasts a few weeks ago. So, to all hipster fans out there, please do not find this delayed review of the ‘Paradise’ EP offensive. And as for the tropical bliss reference heading above, I know summer

Pusha T – My Name is My Name

The Mic/ October 22, 2013

With over a decade of cocaine based rap songs with Clipse under his own Re-Up Records, one would initially think that Pusha T’s debut solo studio album My Name is My Name would be a regurgitation of his past records. However, a lot has changed since Pusha T decided to split from his brother and pursue a solo career. He

Panic! At The Disco – Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!

The Mic/ October 18, 2013

  One thing it’s safe to say about P!ATD is that they will never churn out an album that sounds remotely similar to their last. In many ways, it’s inconsistent, but in many others the fact that Panic! have changed styles more times than you’ve had hot dinners makes for a roller-coaster listen for their dedicated fan base. The addition of Dallon

John Newman – ‘Cheating’ (remix EP) review

The Mic/ October 14, 2013

It seems 23 year old soul sensation John Newman hasn’t vacated the charts over the past year, guiding Rudimental to stupendous success with Feel the Love, and later entering solo with his debut, international smash Love me Again, Newman is the definition of a breath of fresh-air. Second-single from debut-album Tribute, Cheating, brings a new flavour that has more passion

Glasser – ‘Interior’ album review

The Mic/ October 14, 2013

If experimental, architectonic, electro pop didn’t already exist as a convoluted sub-genre then it has just arrived. Architectonic songs are few and far between: Simon and Garfunkel’s goodbye note So Long Frank Lloyd Wright, or Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect by The Decemberists and, err… Our House? Research throws up dozens more, amongst them Pavement’s The Hexx which
