‘Sinking’, the new track from Liverpool ensemble Hushtones, is an effervescent and sparkling piece of sunshine: celestial harmonies, chiming guitars and a gravity-defying level of acceleration combine to create a euphoric blast. There is a swinging sixties merry-go-round whirl to the track, liberating, joyous and free wheeling. Duelling, harmonising vocals add to the vaulting chorus. …

LIVERPOOL’S upbeat popsters Red Rum Club are gonna be swinging into autumn with a new album, in which the sextet are gonna unveil a dastardly plan couched in well-turned tunesmithery – How To Steal The World.

NOVELTY ISLAND, much like Coral Island but not so much Hilbre Island, though that’s weird in its own way, is part of the mythical archipelago of offshore Liverpudlian islands of the musical mind.

LIVERPUDLIAN glamour trash punk brothers Generation are teetering on the edge of fratricide in their new video, ground down by the demands of rock ‘n’ roll, by cheap rum – these guys have taste – that ain’t Captain Morgan’s, no way, José. The trials and tribulations of the life of a glam rock duo, all …

SHE LEFT the big, big vistas of her native Bergen, Norway, and relocated to Liverpool in order to study; found she really liked it by the Mersey, decided to stick around, and soon found that songs were flowing. It’s been quite the journey from university to rising alt.folk talent for Sara Wolff, whose duvet-day summation …

The consistently elegant and ethereal beauty of The Raft shines brightly in the new album ‘Summerheads and Winter Beds’: a collection of shimmering incandescent tracks that burn brightly. And we know, that which burns brightly lasts half as long: the album is over before you know it and you just want it to keep going …

TAKING on the all the glorious, skinny, wasted rock’n’roll tradition of the Stooges, the New York Dolls, early Manics, and throwing open a mascara and glam-riffing portal in the centre of their home city, Liverpool, Generation, the brainchild of brothers James and Dean Carne have just dropped their second mint into the fizzy drink of …
