ALBUM: The Chemical Brothers ‘Born In The Echoes’

Rating: Born In Echoes is the eighth studio album from Manchester electronic dance music duo The Chemical Brothers. Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons return with eleven more “big beats” on their latest record – some of which they recently played…

New Track: MOURN – ‘Gertrudis’

It’s difficult to avoid sounding patronising when discussing the youthfulness of the members of Catalonia-based four piece MOURN – but it is remarkable that Jazz (18), Carla (18), Leia (15) and Antonio (18), are creating such intriguing rock music so…

ALBUM: Lark ‘Funny Man’

Rating: Funny Man is the fifth album from Lark, an independent band based in London, created by Karl Bielik. Nothing should be taken literally on this record. Funny Man is an ode to the dysfunctional; brimming with guilty, gritty, passive…

ALBUM: Love Amongst Ruin – ‘Lose Your Way’

Rating: An abrupt departure from a band as talented and well-known as Placebo would’ve broken a lesser man, but Steve Hewitt – who co-wrote and played drums on the band’s first 5 albums – proved his own creativity was just…

LIVE: SEA LION @ THE ISLINGTON, LONDON, 22.06.15

Sea Lion (aka Linn Osterberg) performed to a small, but appreciative crowd last night at The Islington. Against a backdrop of red velvet curtains, the Swedish singer used her guitar to create waves of electric ambience – initially with her back to the…
