It was in that cavernous bedroom of yours that you played me “Start Choppin’” and something fundamental changed. Sure, I’d heard guitars already.  Rob had introduced me to Hendrix the summer before and I’d fallen in love with the groove of Crosstown Traffic, the insouciance of Stone Free and the volume of Voodoo Chile.  But …

IF, in these long Covidian days, you find you could actually do with a decent slab of DM-bouncing indie-rock with a nod to Pavement and Bill Ryder-Jones, crunchy guitars, chantalong vocals and a little gentle shade cast on the so-called beautiful game, then get your GP to prescribe you the latest single from Gunke, to …

Overshadowed by the pantomime of the main protagonists, it’s easy to forget that, at one time, Oasis were a genuinely exciting band. By way of a little crack in the door back to those times comes a new lyric video for b-side ‘Step Out’, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Don’t Look Back …

YOU CAN sum up Manchester’s Lindsay Munroe succinctly, thus: wow, that voice. Yours truly remembers dropping their spoon into their metaphorical cornflakes, jaw agape, as I first bathed in Lindsay’s track “River” from last summer, a voice tough and deep and melodic; “like Micah P Hinson,” I said, “her physicality belies the depth and power …

ANTHEMIC Plymothians The Native have just dropped their first single of 2021, the stirring guitar anthem “Lost On You”; watch the video with us, below. Still a new band by any criteria, really – they quickly built up a fanbase by word of mouth on the back of some electric gigs down west, with a …

She’s drafted in some stellar guests including Shirley Manson, Andy Bell (Ride/Oasis), Ezra Furman, The Farting Suffragettes, and members of Girl Ray and Tunng. She’s released a track off the record, featuring Ezra …

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a band in possession of good reviews for their first album must find the second difficult. Debuts are, after all, borne out of years of hard graft and fine-tuning, whereas follow-ups are often written and recorded amongst a brand-new dizzying schedule of touring and promotion and under the …

The legendary band Weezer are on their 14th album when they entitled OK Human, on Friday, January 29th on Crush Music/Atlantic.  First track to be taken from the album is ‘All My Favourite Songs’.   Vocal harmonies backed with strings and piano make this a laid back Weezer track, yet still very much a recognisable Weezer track. No mistaken that voice of …

The song is the fourth single taken from their upcoming studio album ‘This Is Where You’ll Find Me’, due out February 26th, 2021. The band comments:  “JR and I wrote this song about a year ago, before the whole COVID-19 …
