Out today is the new album from Blood Red Shoes; Ghosts on Tape, and we’re delighted that Steven Ansell and Laura Mary Carter who make up the duo have given us an insight into each track on the album. Produced by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Royal Brood), the pair went into Echo Zoo Studios in March …

If you heard last years brilliant Call In The Crash Team, no doubt you’ll be a fan of LYR, the band comprised of poet laureate Simon Armitage alongside producers Richard Walters and Patrick Pearson. It’s slightly amazing and at the same time disconcerting that the band didn’t seem to get the recognition they so richly …

If you’re of a certain age, you’ll have heard Children of the Bong somewhere. Taking in techno, electronic, and psychedelic music, they released three demos and one, brilliant album, Sirius Sounds. Meeting at Harrow College, Daniel Goganian and Rob Henry never quite hit the heights their music perhaps deserves, through luck and circumstance, but this …

There’s always been a slight mystique around Transglobal Underground, and they’ve always determinedly followed their own path. With some made up names and a squad of collaborators than have revolved and evolved over time, they’ve been fusing together elements of Western, African and Asian music since they burst onto the scene in 1991 with Temple …

Over on our Spotify page, alongside all the playlists we’ve received from artists, albums of the year, our monthly playlists, psych playlists, classic DJ sets, not forgotten series and other delights (you should really check it out and follow some of them), we’ve added a new, mammoth playlist – every track currently on Spotify from …

I know, I know. This should be my favorite albums of 2014, not albums I’m looking forward to in 2015. As much as I love the favorite lists, and as satisfying as it is once I’m done with making my own and sharing it with the world, I have to admit it’s quite a daunting …
