  We’ve met Joel Compass before. Not in a literal sense of course, I was just searching for a new way of saying I’d written about him. He’s one of that new generation of soulful RnB singers with a (you can tell I’ve been doing this writing thing for a while when I say this) …

How did it happen? You know that four regular guys, Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Baio, and Chris Tomson  firstly met, and then formed Vampire Weekend in 2006 while attending Columbia University. How did it happen that this sort of indie band, admittedly with killer songs, but mix in this African style guitar playing, and …

It consists of Billy Washington on vocals and guitar, Peter Jenkins, vocals and bass, drummer Josh Knight, Joss Allsopp , vocals and trumpet, and Megan Washington on vocals, percussion and keyboard.

  Coming out on Warner Bros. on July 1st is the latest EP from Lewis Watson ‘Four More Songs’. You may have already heard title track ‘Calling’ over the airwaves, as Zane Lowe made it his ‘Hottest record in the world’ not so long back.

And that was mainly down to a singer-songwriter based in that city, Josef Wirnshofer, who writes and records under the name The Marble Man. Releasing his first album in …

There’s two things that I’ve always been good at. One is dreaming, and I often think that maybe now that I’m a proper grown up, with children and everything, I’m possibly too old for dreaming, but I don’t seem to be able to stop. So every time I kick a ball it’s Wembley and I’m …

There’s this sort of rule that when you talk about Switzerland, you have to mention things like mountains and Cuckoo clocks, watches  and chocolate and the like. Musically, there is sort of Alp horns and yodeling and things. I’m sure that if I were Swiss, I would be thoroughly sick of these sort of lazy …

I spoke about my parents record collection before. What reminded me of it was reading about 21-year-old Nottingham singer Harleighblu. This smokey voiced sultry soulstress (I’ll stop there before I get involved in some ‘s’ rated alliteration record attempt) who was deeply influenced by her mother’s collection of soul gems. Using that as a starting …

Marmite and Manchester. Be a good book title that, for someone like Stuart Maconie or something. It’s also true. I’ve had occasions to be there (hasn’t everyone in the UK) whether that be football (away days, eh?) concerts, record shopping or even seeing my sister when she lived there. And wandering round that old city …
