August’s 545 @ The Apex

The second instalment of this year’s 545 events at The Apex saw stellar sets from Golden Bantic, Kelodown, Saving Scarlett, Enterlude and headliner Tom Lumley. Golden Bantic opened the night in front of a great crowd who really related to their infectious indie-pop tracks. Gecko and Pink were the standout tracks from an enjoyable setlist. Tonight was […]

It’s safe to say that these past few months have been slightly busy with reviews of the latest tracks and EPs from around the region, and a fair few releases have slipped through the net! So here is a brand new feature giving you a round-up of all the music we haven’t reviewed over the past few […]

Track Review: Stretch Soul Gang – Open Up Your Eyes

We are so so pleased to be premiering the new track from Stretch Soul Gang: Open Up Your Eyes.

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 […]

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 […]

Kendrick Lamar @ The SSE Arena, Wembley

It’s not often I can say that I’ve been blown away by a gig or concert or whatever… but as soon as the greatest rapper on Earth rose up through the stage last night, I knew that myself and the whole arena were in for a treat. The cleverly-pieced together skits featuring the great man […]

TMB42 Spotlight: The Kicklips

Hailing from Sheffield, The Kicklips who only formed around 10 months ago are already becoming an exciting prospect and are set to have a BIG 2018. Consisting of bassist & vocalist Beck Shillito, guitarist Mo Ghani and drummer Dan Siddall, the three-piece take mid-noughties indie music and blend it with a modern twist and poppy […]

BurySOUND Heat 4 @ The Hunter Club, BSE

Kelodown were named winners of Heat For of BurySOUND 2018 at The Hunter Club last night (16th Feb) in what was a very close heat. Unwaves, a duo from South Suffolk, kicked off the night with their impressive instrumentation (which included the drummer playing the drums whilst singing and implementing synths into the music) and […]

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 band consists of Tamara Grzegorzek (vocals), Jonny Elstone (guitar) and Alex Archer (drums), and have been together since mid-2015. Since then, they’ve released a debut EP and several singles, as well as supporting other upcoming bands […]
