ILLINOIS quartet Ganser have just released their second single of 2020, “Emergency Equipment & Exits”, an exploration of that universal human experience, the sudden, instinctual urge to just up and leave; and what would happen if you gave into that urge?  The video to the song, beautifully self-directed by the band, finds the quartet in …

LOOKING back, perhaps the first real portent of the way this year would unfold more sourly than most was our loss of that architect of the scratchy, jagged riff and leader of the Gang of Four, Andy Gill, early in February.

As the figurehead of Leeds hailing post-punk icons Gang of Four, Andy Gill sowed musical seeds across an array of artists with his four-decade spanning song writing reign: from the likes of St. Vincent, who declares Gill as her favourite guitarist, to the Red-Hot Chilli Peppers (whose debut album was produced by Gill). It is therefore the …

Clocking in at just 2 minutes and forty-one seconds, ‘The Future Is Not What It Was’, the new single from The Clockworks, immediately makes it clear this is a band with a future, built on the genes of a very admirable past. The angular, stop/start delivery is reminiscent of the very best of the post …

Jade Hairpins share their video for track Dolly Dream taken from their upcoming album Harmony Avenue due May 29th via Merge Records.
