That album, Reason To Live, will …

THE EXCELLENT Surrey composer Matt Emery, a leading light over at Injazero Records for four years or so now working at the more deliciously experimental edges of modern composition, is launching an EP project entitled the Spotlight Series, in which he looks to investigate and put the spotlight on an instrument in turn, really explore …

BRINGING new life into the world and fresh hope for a budding spring, Strathspey folkie Rachel Sermanni is all set to drop her first EP in what feels like too long, actually, too long; and she’s throwing up the windows on that forthcoming release with the bell-clear offering to the fates of “Swallow Me”, which …

(Doubting Thomases: by god, they so are). …

Great news from Birmingham-born Londoner John Myrtle today, from whom we last heard a couple of months ago with the sprightly teaser track from his upcoming debut album, “Get Her Off My Mind”.
