Snoopzilla ‘7 Days Of Funk’ ALBUM REVIEW

Only a few people in the music industry are as chamaleontic as Calvin Broadus is. He’s gained fame with his rap as Snoop Dogg, he then became Snoop Lion when he decided to join Rastafarianism and devote himself to reggae….

Tracks Of The Week 13.12.13

Aussie singer-songwriter, Courtney Barnett, delivers infectious garage-rock with an edge. Although I’ve only recently discovered her, 2013 saw the release of Barnett’s second EP, and most recent single ‘History Eraser’ has received much international critical acclaim. She also has her…

Mode Moderne ‘Occult Delight’ ALBUM REVIEW

The great indie-gothic revival has never really taken off, despite Joy Division’s continued influence underlying on the output of many bands (and even more Topman T-shirts). While the heavy baritone/bass mix could be heard on debuts – White Lies as…

Paul Orwell ‘Like I Did Before’ EP Review

So here we are again, being transported away, back in time to an almost psychedelic, 60’s. After the release of ‘Little Reason’ around 2 months ago it was with great anticipation that I first heard Paul Orwell’s new EP, ‘Like I…

Tracks Of The Week 06.12.13

One of my favourite new bands of 2013, Radkey, have now released a follow up to their second EP, with a fantastic new video which features phenomenal footage of their recent UK tour (which I was pretty gutted to miss)….

TOY ‘Join The Dots’ ALBUM REVIEW

Gigslutz Tracks Of The Week 29.11.13

Whilst we have become familiar with Sivu’s pretty alt-pop and youthful charm, new track ‘I Hold’ – which features the soaring vocals of Marika Hackman – has darker undertones than previous material and an added introspective depth. ‘I Hold’ combines…

Gigslutz Tracks Of The Week 22.11.13

Although Jake Evans has only just released his debut single, he is no newcomer to the music scene. Having first gained attention with his band Rambo & Leroy, he then went on to co-front and play guitar for Bad Lieutenant…

Jake Bugg ‘Shangri La’ ALBUM REVIEW

Even by modern standards, Jake Bugg has really rocketed to fame. From being a plucky ‘one to watch’ (albeit one signed to a major label), when his single “Lightning Bolt” coincided with the 2012 Olympics and soundtracked Usain Bolt’s every…

Welcome Pariah ‘Catch The Moment’ – EP Review

A modern day alternative rock band, mixed with a subtle 60’s psychedelic influence, and sprinkled with a contemporary twist…  Not many people can name many who can incorporate all three genres, and still sound ace.  However, this bazaar blending is…
