Blancmange – Blank Burn


Having spent 23 years in the musical wilderness; the release of ‘Blank burn’ comes as nothing less than an intriguing surprise.  The fact that it has become so eagerly anticipated is a further incredulity, but with the likes of La Roux shamelessly plagiarising their sound, it was perhaps inevitable the duo would return, ‘Blanc Burn’ [...]

Sophie Barker releases new single Say Goodbye and streams Lucky Elephant Remix


Sophie Barker, the voice behind Zero 7’s stunning first two albums, returns with her new single ‘Say Goodbye’, released 14th March 2011.

Texan metal warriors The Sword are pleased to announce UK tour dates for May 2011. The band had to re-schedule touring the Warp Riders album last October due to former drummer Trivett Wingo suddenly leaving the band for personal reasons but since then the band have hit the road with a new drummer. These 5 [...]

Bill Kirchen – Word To The Wise

Bill Kirchen has been hailed as the original “Dieselbilly” guitarist, as a standout singer and songwriter, and as a pioneer of rock and roll honky-tonk with the band Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen. Now Kirchen is headed for a breakout with his new album of all-star duets, ‘Word to the Wise’ (Proper). Full [...]

Allan’s Grand Day Out – Maastricht

The ear-tickling atmospheres of ‘Maastricht’ are one of the most refreshing surprises of this summer. Four musical watercolours oozing with Balearic beats à la Delorean via JJ, defused through electro-folktronic glitches as only Dntel’s Tamborello and Electric President would assemble. ‘Allan’s Grand Day Out’ is a duo, composed by Zoe Klinck and Bryn White. They [...]

Department Of Eagles – Archive 2003 – 2006

Soundtrack for a folk-tale: this could be the best way to describe exhaustively ‘Archive 2003-2006’ in four words. Six songs and five sketches coming straight from Daniel Rossen, voice and guitar of Grizzly Bear, and Fred Nicolaus, produced by multi-instrumentalist Chris Taylor, member of Brooklyn-based quartet too. ‘Archive 2003-2006’ gathers the works composed in the [...]

Max Richter – Infra

‘Infra’ started life as a ballet soundtrack, however this is no ordinary ballet. Max Richter’s influences lie much more in modern composers such as Philip Glass than the traditional masters, and so the results here are a ballet, but not as we know it. We start with the haunting buildup of ‘Infra 1’, some hushed [...]

John Cunningham – 1998-2002 Homeless House/Happy-Go-Unlucky

Sometimes, angst just doesn’t cut it. For all the anger and screaming and life-isn’t-fair shredding apart of your own mentality, life and the human mind never work as simply as feeling demonstratively angry. And that’s where John Cunningham steps in, with his silky-smooth melancholy that seems to have been totally bypassed by the last few [...]

Stagecoach – Crash My Ride EP

Well, what do we have here? No, really, what do we have? Because I’m not entirely sure. For all intents and purposes we have the new extended play, or EP,  ‘Crash My Ride’ by Stagecoach. There are six songs on it. And I suppose that’s a starting point. The first ten seconds of opener ‘Hieroglyphics’ [...]
