 With their debut release for d:vision “Let The Night” still riding high in the Italian Official Top 40 singles chart and currently signed to Capitol Music in France, Germany and the UK, Grammy award winning duo Dirty Vegas return with their new single for the label in the shape of “Setting Sun.” Poetically lovely with more than …

This great laid back groove, with simple beats underpinning an amazing acoustic bass line and sultry, soulful vocals is the second single from Cocoa Jackson Lane, Fall on the Floor. An eclectic mix of people, the band – Jess Harlen on guitars and vocals, Camilla Charlesworth on bass, synths and vocals, and drummer Pat Tuariki …

I saw We Are Scientists the last time they were in the U.K in 2010 at the Leeds festival, they arrived on stage with half drunk bottles of wine and treated the crowd to their own brand of powerful indie pop hits and hilarious on stage banter. Saturday night at the Leeds Stylus was a …

I like the idea of being able to wander in someone’s mind and these clever lyrics by Los Angeles duo Street Joy give me the impression of what it might be like with their track ‘Wandering in your mind’. The confident swagger of the vocal delivery are all wrapped up in a gorgeously late 60’s …

Portland four piece Aan released their debut album, ‘Amor Ad Nauseum’ on 4th February and from that they have released the stand out single ‘Daylight’.

I reckon every recording artist both signed and unsigned pre-about-2000 has at one point in their career recorded music in the Lo-fi style. The mental image of a young Rick Astley crooning into a 4-track tape recorder accompanied only by a rickety nylon-string may startle more than say, Keith Morris doing it, but I suspect …

I guess it’s time to start thinking which summer festival to attend and I’m really excited about the first acts announced by Beacons Festival. This independent festival is only in its third year (after the 2011 event was forced to close due to flooding) and it seems to be giving the bigger festivals a definate …

If you will, allow me to take you back to Runcorn in 1990. Not somewhere many people would want to go back to voluntarily, I’ll grant you. Not only that, I would specifically like to take you to Foxy’s night club, a small nondescript club, where disco pop never stopped (until maybe 1am). What possible …

King Krule videos have always nosedived into the surreal. ‘Rock Bottom’ s visual accompaniment transfigured the desolation-induced lyrics into a beautifully contorted mess of Lynchian, Kafkaesque and beat generation reference work, with sparse industrial landscapes, cockroach wallpapers, black lodge diners, cactus women and a pack of brutish ‘city boys’ summoning a real sense of dread, …

ON A WEEKEND in which some of her fellow folk revivalists were busy dividing opinion at Worthy Farm, Laura Marling was finishing a run of unique, ‘immersive’ nights in a world far removed from the easy, egalitarian vibes of Glastonbury. Marling, now LA-resident, is ploughing a furrow very much independent of the likes of the …
