The Wytches – Thunder Lizard’s Reprieve // EP Review

Their willingness to experiment is at least admirable, but there’s nothing spectacular enough here to turn many heads.

Sleater-Kinney – No Cities To Love // Album Review

The trio are as impassioned as ever, intent on bolstering their already-incendiary legacy. And that’s precisely what they do, unleashing a scorching set of razor-sharp punk-rock that puts killer hooks and powerhouse choruses at its heart.

Lambchop – FLOTUS // Album Review

If alt-country is still a thing and Lambchop remain one of its stalwarts, here they stretch the definition so far it’s frankly useless

Honeyblood – Honeyblood // Album Review

A self-assured twosome; delivering melodic indie hooks and amiable comparisons to the likes of Dum Dum Girls, but do we really need another blend-in indie band?

Sebadoh – Act Surprised // Album Review

Plastic Mermaids // Live Review

Plastic Mermaids, from the Isle of Wight, have steadily built a rare and glittering world that stretches far beyond their island vistas, one that's gravitational pull is irresistible. We went to see them live at The Lexington last week. 

Yung Lean // Live Review

I’d love to say Yung Lean and his clique are just some talentless fame obsessed Tumblr fuckboys but I’d be wrong.

Review // Adult. – The Way Things Fall

Ghostly International // May 14th Its been six years since the last full-length output from Detroit's ADULT., who took a much needed and deserved hiatus,...

Tobias Jesso Jr – Goon // Album Review

The tendency to mention Tobias Jesso Jr’s personal misfortunes when assessing his music often obstructs the fact that it’s extremely derivative.

Review // Drenge – Drenge

Infectious - August 19th The debut album from Drenge see's the Sheffield brothers sticking firmly to what they know - bitchy party rock. Yep, the self-titled...
