Jimothy Lacoste // Live Review

In a town where music is rife and the streets are thriving, it can be difficult to stand out. However, Jimothy managed to shine over the vibrancy of Camden Town. He showed his screaming fans that life really is "getting quite exciting" and, from the moment he ran on stage, the crowd did not stop moving.

The National // Live Review

Where do you go when you’re The National? A band who have slowly, and almost without anyone really noticing, become one of the biggest bands on the planet. We went to see them perform at the Southbank Centre on 18th April 2019.

They've simply never sounded more vital.

Strand Of Oaks – Heal // Album Review

Timothy Showalter sheds the rootsy folk of his previous work and truly comes into his own in HEAL, a remarkable record

Death From Above 1979 – The Physical World // Album Review

The frenetic dance punk formula of their debut has enough life in it to make their reunion a cause for raised roofs, not eyebrows. The thrill of the old is enough

The Wands – The Dawn // Album Review

The Wands' unashamed embrace of such frowned-upon fruits as free love and hallucinogenic imagery makes a success of this playful trip to the source of psyche

The Cribs – For All My Sisters // Album Review

all the angst, emotion and flair we've come to expect.

Nai Harvest – Hairball // Album Review

Diehard fans of the band are bound to find a lot to love on Hairball - it’s amped up on more sugar than a human being should ever consume in one sitting

Outfit – Slowness // Album Review

Outfit's second full-length Slowness is an album whose clear inventiveness is sometimes smothered by considered sophistication

Drinks – Hermits On Holiday // Album Review

Wonderfully skewed, DRINKS forgo the drones and organ chants of White Fence in favour of something more akin to a Krautrock Arthur Lee and Nico, while never negating their renowned weirdness in the process

CHVRCHES – Every Open Eye // Album Review

This is a band that is older but trying not to be weighed down by it, as urgent beats underpin huge stadium bangers leading into a pensive, almost haunting ending

Fufanu – Few More Days To Go // Album Review

Discordant arpeggios and a fine slackened beat help to unspool Fufanu’s mechanised modus operandi, and the band sound more engaging for it

Milk! Records – Good For You // Album Review

Less the brilliant compilation it undoubtedly is, it instead feels like a signpost to the open-door clubhouse of one of the most talented crowds around.

Niki & The Dove – Everybody’s Heart Is Broken Now //...

Everybody’s Heart Is Broken Now fairs better than its predecessor by taking an emancipatory trip to early-80s Manhattan

Fear of Men – Fall Forever // Album Review

Fall Forever subtly builds on the shadowy moods of their previous material, continuing to pour the same level of thought, care and attention to detail into the production

Continental Drift // EP Review

"Continental Drift offers a collection of songs to make your heart soar and your feet move, like all the best pop music should"

LVL UP – Return to Love // Album Review

LVL UP’s Return to Love – their third LP and Sub Pop debut – is the result a truly collaborative effort.
