EP Review: Salvador – Salvador

Framlingham-based indie band Salvador have just recently released their self-titled debut EP, consisting of five great tracks. Ordinary Love opens the EP and just three seconds in, the vocals set the mood of the song making it instantly feel indie. The tightness of the instrumentals shows the bond of the band and the strength of […]

Track Review: The Extons – No Hope

Kings Lynn-based indie rock heroes The Extons returned to the fore in February with the phenomenally good No Hope. Having flown off the radar with a brief hiatus, the band signalled their return with performances at last year’s NMG Awards and a packed Portland Arms show before the release of their latest hit. No Hope […]

EP Review: The Catch – How It Seems

One of the best indie bands in the area, The Catch are currently making a name for themselves with their ferocious live performances and awesome track releases. With their new EP How It Seems, they certainly don’t disappoint. The EP follows on from the release of their two recent singles Tie Dye and Sort It Out which have both […]

Track Review: Tom Lumley – Crawling

One of Cambridge’s finest indie talents Tom Lumley is back with an almighty bang with his snarling new track Crawling. With the track being teased for an imminent release during his Homegrown Festival set last month, Lumley surprisingly released Crawling last Friday (29th June) ahead of his homecoming show in Cambridge the same night. The track is […]

Track Review: The Catch – Sort It Out

In what is their second track release of 2018, The Catch prove why they are one of the most talked about bands in Bury St Edmunds with Sort It Out. Sort It Out is slightly different to the track that they released in February, in the sense that Tie Dye was a huge indie rock banger, but the former has it’s […]

TMB42 Spotlight: Sunday Arches

Sunday Arches are our focus in this month’s Spotlight, and you’re going to love them! It’s an interesting tale how the band formed. Having been friends since school in Colchester and playing music together through their teenage years, the four band members met up under a South London railway arch a decade later (presumably on […]

Dingus Khan @ The Hunter Club, Bury St Edmunds

Another Saturday, another Washing Machine at The Hunter Club, and tonight was the long-anticipated live return from Manningtree’s finest Dingus Khan. Before the main event, four excellent bands entertained the ever-growing crowd. Colchester’s Nothing. Existed. were up next, however due to transport issues and miscellanous reasons, I unfortunately missed their set apart from their last […]

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. […]
