YOUNG THE GIANT – Mind Over Matter

YOUNG THE GIANT - Mind Over Matter

I’m of the opinion that indie died the minute drainpipe jeans became widely accessible to men; I’m speaking of a time before Pete Doherty turned into a parody of himself and the Arctic Monkeys were actually the most exciting band of the planet. Suffice to say, what we consider the alternative is far broader now [...]

JOHN MOUSE – The death of John Mouse

john mouse

Absent of irony, John Mouse’s fourth record is a crash course into the misconceived simplicity of songwriting utilising the bare necessities. And while the Baloo references end at Mouse’s hospitable demeanour, the reliance on rudimental nostalgia and clumsily integrated banter, clips the wings of what is potentially a great insight into the everyman’s songwriter. Opening [...]
