Following on from debut track Hogher, which showed they could handle Dilla-esque 70s soul/funk, and Keeping me Under, which raise expectation levels even further, London duo Two Another are back with their debut self-titled EP. Alongside those first two singles, it also includes a new track, Shouldn’t have done that. It’s full of these shimmering …

By Ryan J Weaver Goat announces new 7″: I Sing In Silence, they are here again with a more tempered and drawn out sound.  This is them cooled off from their thrashing to the head with folk-fuzz balls of worldly theatrics and psychedelic fusions of mysterious quests through time, this is their aural sabbatical. They …

Whitley Bay’s poster boys, Lisbon, announce a spring headline tour across the UK beginning in May in Leeds. The boys (Matty, Gaz, Joe and Alex) have gone from strength to strength across the last few months, receiving high profile plays on Radio 1 and getting audiences across the UK bouncing along to their vibrant slice …

The Blackbrird EP is a 4 track consisting of two originals by Christoph and a remix of each by Musk and Jeremy Liar. ‘Blackbird’ has a nice old skool Techno feel that builds nicely …

There is a lot of acoustic music around. Not just at the moment, but that’s always been the case. It is timeless and never seems to go out of fashion. But in such a busy market place, it can often be difficult to stand out. You only need to go down to your local open …

A pitch that borders too high, and a trill that sounds borderline nervy, somehow combine with …
