Honeyblood – In Plain Sight // Album Review

It’s largely set to glassily- produced bubblegum rock that lacks the raw punch of Honeyblood’s earlier material but isn’t shy of brash pop-punk hooks.

Cate Le Bon – Reward // Album Review

At once a comforting and curious listen, Reward is an excellent album from an artist finally getting the recognition she deserves.

Charly Bliss – Young Enough // Album Review

All the depth and changes aside, this record is fun and it's exciting to know there is more to come from them.

Fatai // Live Review

Fatai is one of the few artists who manage to make the show about the audience, and not about herself. We went to see her live at the Borderline.

The Beths // Live Review

We went to see the Beths perform at The Dome as they embark on a series of summer headline shows across Europe.

Sacred Paws – Run Around The Sun // Album Review

Run Around The Sun sees the band playing on themes of insecurity, loneliness and resilience.

Lydia Ainsworth – Phantom Forest // Album Review

Phantom Forest is her most sonically taut yet – one for listeners seeking evened plains – a concept record about humanity’s disregard for nature that’s set to a crisp, synth-pop soundtrack.

Amyl and The Sniffers // Album Review

Amyl and The Sniffers are an unstoppable force of energy. With their self-titled debut album, the Aussie four-piece assert themselves as one of the world’s most explosive new bands.

Viagra Boys // Live Review

Watching Viagra Boys you can’t help but revel in the knowledge that you’re witnessing something instantly iconic and also slightly Marmite in taste. We went to see the Swedish band at perform live at Rough Trade East.

Big Thief // Live Review

Having released their 3rd excellent record in 4 years, the New York indie-folk quartet, Big Thief, is one of the hottest tickets around right now. We went to see them perform at the Roundhouse on May 23rd to see if they could keep up their winning streak.

Mac DeMarco – Here Comes The Cowboy // Album Review

An air of sarcasm hangs over the whole record, and if I'm honest, I was hoping for something a lot more radical. Best listened to in the haze of lonely summer evenings.

Snow Ghosts – A Quiet Ritual // Album Review

...the trio return with their third studio album, A Quiet Ritual, offering a poetic and sobering commentary on the concept of death.

Rukhsana Merise // Album Review

We listened to Rukhsana Merise's brand new album, Today.

Sebadoh – Act Surprised // Album Review

Act Surprised feels like a familiar friend from the get-go. It’s got that youthful grit and energy that the band have come to be known for in their prolific career.

Kedr Livanskiy – Your Need // Album Review

Levanskiy is not paying homage, she’s simply setting out a new blueprint for us to embrace, examine and worship.

Drahla – Useless Coordinates // Album Review

As for the feel of their debut album, ‘hectic’ doesn’t even do it justice.

Vampire Weekend – Father Of The Bride // Album Review

For a band constantly criticised for being overly arch, they’ve always sounded joyfully unpretentious. And so it remains.

The National – I Am Easy To Find // Album Review

Their eighth album comfortably meets and exceeds the breadth of their past decade’s aural sublimity.

Loyle Carner // Live Review

Much anticipation has surrounded Loyle Carner’s tour, hyped by his second album, after almost two years without making music. The south Londoner did not disappoint at the sold-out crowd at the Camden Roundhouse.
