The 26-track compilation featured new music and covers from Long Island scene staples …

Great news from Birmingham-born Londoner John Myrtle today, from whom we last heard a couple of months ago with the sprightly teaser track from his upcoming debut album, “Get Her Off My Mind”. That was his first new music in more than 18 months, following the mid-2019 release of the Here’s John Myrtle EP. He’s …

Hailing from Dublin and, by their own admission, rooted within the realms of doing it themselves, indie lo-fi trio The Elephant Room have released their newest single, “Fillipoff.” A melancholic track for a sunny day, “Fillipoff” is a sobering work that manages to create halcyon moments within its melodies.

These are all lightning-rod topics in today’s climate and can either be addressed with a certain nuance, an unbridled rage or, more worryingly, a clumsy heavy-handedness. Thankfully, it’s …

Fewer voices in music are as recognisable as Mark Lanegan. The ex-Screaming Trees frontman has felt like a sought after collaborator with some of the big names across the decade. Be it his work alongside Afghan Whigs leader Greg Dulli (The Gutter Twins) or his regular appearances alongside Queens of the Stone Age, Lanegan makes …

So here’s what we already knew. Firstly, that Tracey Thorn is the queen of cool. In the nineties when her band Everything But The Girl started hanging out with the likes of Massive Attack, Deep Dish and got the remix treatment by Todd Terry, they developed their own brand of laid back electronic pop. Both …

Last Month former EBTG front woman Tracey Thorn revealed details of her her album and the disco-infused lead single ‘Queen.’ With the release of ‘Record’ just around the corner, the second single ‘Sister’ has just dropped. Whilst it has a more laid back sound that the first single, it keeps the electronic vibe that we …
