Dilettante‘s self-titled album is a shimmering collection of pure pop vignettes – leaved by a self-deprecatory sense of humour and drama (see the theatrical posturings of fifties-influenced ‘Donna’) but with a common thread of colossal, indelible melodies and mountain high anthems. Touched as all good pops songs are by hints of melancholia, the synth beds …

‘I want the future now’ pronounced Peter Hammill on one of his late seventies solo outpourings. Scroll forward almost half a century and producer/electronic musician Pacsal Bideau has been exploring his own avenue of future thinking. If you put him in a room with the old prog-curmudgeon, he might quiz Pete about which version of …

You would be wrong to lazily pass off Sessa’s music as laid back or simply chilled. For sure his sound-world is luxurious and something to recline into but drifting off is not what’s intended here. As Sessa, Sergio Sayeg entwines the pulse and poetry of classic Brazilian pop with psychedelic fluidity and tight-hipped acoustic funk. …

Without doubt, to me, Johnny Hunter is one of the most exciting bands coming out of Australia at the moment and their debut album ‘Want’ is a masterpiece of new wave post punk indie imbued with a punk sensibility. The inherent muscularity of music and imagery is leavened by an erudite sensitivity and an indelible …

We are very pleased to provide an exclusive early listen to the new album ‘Wanderer’ from Queensland’s Darcy Kate. With a voice of smoky velvet and a slow burning sparkle to the sound, Kate is a prodigious talent: her songwriting is melodic and tinted with a touch of melancholia and her voice glides and floats …

The music is shimmering and cinematic: wide …

Big in Europe, unknown in Malawi…It’s not often that you can use that strapline about a band but that’s the trajectory so far for Madalitso Band, the enduringly upbeat partnership of Yosefe Kalekeni and Yobu Maligwa. The pair’s distinctive raw Malawian folk sound, bonded through years of busking in Lilongwe’s shopping malls, may have first …

American band Lit have returned with their first album in five years. It marks a significant shift away from the country sound of 2017’s These Are the Days and harks back to the alt rock of their heyday, when ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ ruled the US Alt. charts and its album, A Place in the …

Brighton’s Opus Kink have released their frantic and jaunty EP ‘Til The Stream Runs dry via Nice Swan records. The EP kicks into life after the blaring of horns of Into The Stream straight into ‘I Love You, Baby’. A ferocious lively track with urgent guitar stabs rousing horns and vocals that are spat go …

Having signed to Conch Town Records, the new album Let’s All Go Insane from Key West singer-songwriter Tony Baltimore see’s him truly find himself and his sound. A selection of songs full of witty lyricism and tight, exciting instrumentation, this is a roots-rock album from a musician enjoying his craft and with a clear passion …
