THEIR first meeting may have been entirely inauspicious – the one enquiring of the other whether in fact he was, indeed, a French drug dealer – but once that initial barrier was overcome, the twin, surging talents of acid folk scion Devendra Banhart and minimalist composer and producer Noah Georgeson became firm friends; collaborators.

ENCOURAGED by the international success of her award-winning and Grammy-nominated album Punisher, the phenomenal Phoebe Bridgers has set out and reworked four tracks off the album into a vinyl release, Copycat Killer.

Shame have recently shared their new single ‘Nigel Hitter’, a track taken from their long-anticipated new album Drunk Tank Pink.

Watch it with us. With last year’s Oh My God at …

Today, she offers the defining moment on the record, “Berlin”, a careful, beautiful declaration celebrating comfort in being alone. Speaking on the single and the accompanying video, a lovely animation by Henry Dunbar, Lily states: “It reflects both the comfort and claustrophobia …

BRISTOL is a city that has really pulled its weight in modern musical culture; there’s no need to list all those paradigm-shifters that have come from the Avon Valley.  One of the rising stars of the Bristol scene, 2020 vintage, is the Dorset-born singer-songwriter Fenne Lily, who has shared the video for  “To Be A …

The solo artist, boygenius, and Better Oblivion Community Center member’s second album delivers modern perceptions on mental health and weighty musings on relationships, while displaying the effects and symptoms of relationships rather than simply being love songs, across a lurid but vivid instrumental canvas. The opener’s warped, sparse and eerie vocals resonate like an onomatopoeic …
