NOW WHOLLY ensconced in what they call a ‘hive mind’ situation in North London, and with their new EP, Walking Machine, poised to be set free on a guitar-lovin’ public on August 6th, FEET today release the summery Noo Yoik fuzz melodies of “Library”, which we’ve got for you below. And a one-two-three-four … “”Library …

ROARING back into spiky guitar contention from their adopted North London fastness with a lithe new tune that has all the stop-start passion of Elastica or Menswe@r, FEET have announced a new EP, Walking Machine, due for release on August 6th on their new home, Nice Swan Records; and it comes fanfared with a first …

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have announced a special collection of remixes of latest single “It’s a Beautiful World” will be released exclusively on 12″ vinyl for Record Store Day 2018 (Saturday 21st April). This track was released as the second single from Number 1 album “Who Built the Moon?”, Noel’s 10th consecutive chart-topping album. …

Seminal Britrock power-pop trio Dodgy have been announced as the opening act on the Britrock Must Be Destroyed tour in May. With 12 Top 40 singles and over a million sales worldwide, Dodgy produced some of the most recognisable hits of the 90s, including ‘Staying Out For The Summer’, ‘If You’re Thinking Of Me’, and …

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have released It’s A Beautiful World, the second single from their Number 1 album Who Built the Moon?. The track was produced by acclaimed producer, DJ, and composer David Holmes, and features a French spoken word segment inspired by Gallic art house cinema performed by Charlotte Courbe. Despite Holmes’ insistence that Courbe “produced …

At the peak of their success I was distinctly unimpressed with Blur and their run of chirpy-chappy chart toppers. Parklife and the Great Escape both sold by the lorry full, yet I struggled understand their appeal to my generation, or quite their press-derived rivalry with Oasis was considered newsworthy. Two decades later and I can …

James are heading for their 35th year together as a band so it’s something of a surprise to learn that their latest album, their 12th studio album, came very close to being their very first to reach #1. Of course, their bumper singles-fest “The Best of” reached #1 in 1998, going on to be certified …

Suede* is the band that many forget actually kickstarted (or possibly hotwired) Britpop. Night Thoughts is Suede’s seventh album and only the second since their welcomed reunion in 2010, a bit close on the heels of 2013’s Bloodsports. For fans who started to lose interest after Coming Up, this may well be the album to …

Walsall quartet The Assist make the kind of Britpop infused rollocking indie pop that you can never get quite enough of, and so it proves once again with their new single, Love. Although it nods its head at Shaun Ryder, its nearer to the less well known (but equally as good, I would argue) Flowered …

London quartet, Red House Glory, have been releasing EP after EP for the best part of four years. Their true Brit-rock, matched with their glorious melodies and pop-infused choruses makes them an outrageously catchy band and one the whole family can enjoy. Ahead of their next EP, All Out of Love, the band treat us …
