The Magic Gang: The Magic Gang review

It’s been a long time coming, for sure. Having released a plethora of really really strong EP’s, The Magic Gang have finally got around to releasing a full-length album which a lot of people (like myself) have been waiting a LONG time for. I saw The Magic Gang early last year, supporting Circa Waves, and […]

Young Fathers: Cocoa Sugar review

Eagerly anticipated: the words on everyone’s lips when Young Fathers announced their third full-length record Cocoa Sugar, and it’s lived up to its expectations wholeheartedly. On the face of it, the Edinburgh trio have not only kept to their wicked ways of experimental hip-hop but have made Cocoa Sugar more accessible to new listeners, whereas their debut DEAD is […]

Track Review: Me and The Moon – It’s Alright

Me and The Moon are back with their new single It’s Alright and it’s a quality indie pop tune!

The Hoosiers @ The Waterfront Studio, Norwich

A sprinkling of nostalgia filled The Waterfront Studio on Tuesday night (10th October) when The Hoosiers played to a sell-out crowd. Their 10th-anniversary tour to celebrate their debut record The Trick To Life kicked off with a bang as the band thrashed their way through the epic Worried About Ray and even better Worst Case […]

The Killers: Wonderful Wonderful review

Wonderful Wonderful, the latest addition to The Killers discography, is in the same vein as their last record rather than their first two. It’s safe to say that The Killers haven’t released an overwhelmingly good record since 2006’s Sam’s Town. Their latest record Wonderful Wonderful is a very patchy release though it does have a few highlights. […]

The National: Sleep Well Beast review

The National’s seventh record Sleep Well Beast is a moody but warming masterpiece. Before I talk about any of the tracks from their new record, I just want to say how underrated The National really are. Having been around for nearly fifteen years, they are still a band that are still yet to breakthrough to the […]
