Australian duo High Highs a.k.a. Jack Milas and Oli Chang have been bringing delicious electro to parties basically everywhere. They’ve toured with Vampire Weekend, Empire of the Sun and How to dress well. In addition they’ve self released their debut album ‘Open Season’ earlier in the year, and they have an ep of remixes coming …

It’s one of those quintessentially English places, Oxford. The writer William Butler Yeats, in a letter to fellow poet, and possible unrequited love interest Katharine Tynan, said “I wonder anybody does anything at Oxford but dream and remember, the place is so beautiful. One almost expects the people to sing instead of speaking. It is …

So today was September. and here in Sheffield, it was like they switched off the Summer and switched on the Autumn. As i ventured out this morning, I had to wander straight back inside to get a jumper, and, however much I tried to stay out in the garden this afternoon, the wind blowing in …

Part of growing up is the inevitable invites to dinner parties. I try, as much as I can to avoid them.

But Blues audiences have never really seen anything like Benjamin Darvill, a.k.a. Son of Dave. Although he’s …

I’ve just come back off holiday. I went to the little Channel Island of Alderney. It’s this small bit of rock, where everything happens, well, whenever. I sort of love the Island and its charms, but one of the thing i don’t like, even a little bit, is getting there. Firstly, I had to fly …

I reckon pretty much everyone tries a diet at sometime in their life. Whether that’s because they want to get smaller, or more muscle-bound, or fit into a particular dress or something, we all try it. I had a friend, this huge Tuba player we called Tiny, who went on a diet. Cut out all …

There was this lad at my school called Tom. I didn’t even know him that well, only enough to nod to really, but I think at the time I almost wanted to be him. He had cool clothes, was captain of the school football team, had the latest haircuts and the girls crowded around him, …
