GoldSoul – Blood Red

5 June 2011 |

From a band that counts Gem Archer, Richard Hawley & Nick O’ Malley amongst their fans, Gold Soul are a real disappointment.  Their two track single released on an independent label sounds poor throughout, with the recording quality being … Read More

Sarah Jarosz – Follow Me Down

5 June 2011 |

The Cute Lepers – Adventure Time

5 June 2011 |

Well, isn’t this a conundrum. What I have here is easily one of the most likable records of the year, full of energy, melody and genuine fun, a combination which is deceptively hard to get right without sounding either … Read More

The Naked And Famous – Girls Like You

5 June 2011 |

The Naked and Famous have been one of the most hyped bands of 2011, landing themselves on the BBC Sound of 2011 Poll. Their album “Passive Me Aggressive You” has already spawned three successful singles and their latest effort … Read More

5 June 2011 |

American powerpop band The Click Five have already sold 2 million albums worldwide but this success has been mainly limited to Asia. Perhaps their latest album TCV will help them breakthrough the European market.

The Click Five have previously … Read More
