One of the debut EP’s of the year last year came from Icelandic duo Logi Pedro Stefansson and Karin Sveinsdottir, aka Young Karin. After meeting at a song contest, the pair locked themselves away in a Reykjavík studio, reappearing with the n1 EP, and (more recently) winning awards at the Icelandic Music Awards. It starts …

“LEEDS! How are we doing?!” The crowd roars in response as lead singer Stewart Brock addresses his fans. I quickly shouted “How are you?” and that caught him off guard. That’s the thing about bands; every night they greet a city like old friends but the crowd rarely get to ask the questions. Try it yourself …

It coming to the end of an era, for Norwegian duo Röyksopp, aka Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge.Their forthcoming fifth album, the appropriately titled The Inevitable End drops on November 10th via Dog Triumph, and the band state it will be the last, although not the end of the pair musically speaking.  “We feel like …

First emerging with a video that consisted of four minutes of complete silence and total darkness and named after them, Swedish duo Eternal Death have alway had the ability to cause fascination and bewilderment wherever they go. Out tomorrow is a new single, and the follow up to previous single Bullet, which showcased their considerable …

Oh Vuvuvultures, how could we ignore you. The London-based band, who we have fawned over on a number of occasions in the last year, not least for their album Push/Pull, which showed the band – Vocalist Harmony Boucher with Paul Ressel on guitars and a rhythm section of Nicole Bettencourt Coelho and Matt Christensen, could …

We always have a motto, ‘It has to be pleasant’. So say Apparaat, a new Danish/Dutch duo comprised of Tam Vibberstoft and Nils Gade. Its too easy to describe the two as a band, they are much more than that – more a complete artistic package. They make music, take photos,  do performances, write ambient …

Part of growing up is the inevitable invites to dinner parties. I try, as much as I can to avoid them. The strained conversation, usually about a mutually convenient, middle of the road topic, such as the weather, the fact footballers get paid too much, the school your children go to…. Although sometimes you’re lucky, …

I reckon pretty much everyone tries a diet at sometime in their life. Whether that’s because they want to get smaller, or more muscle-bound, or fit into a particular dress or something, we all try it. I had a friend, this huge Tuba player we called Tiny, who went on a diet. Cut out all …

Apparently, according to Mancunian Francesca and Northern-Irish Londoner Ian a.k.a. I am a Camera, to steal, appropriate, connect, evolve and become legendary is what it’s all about. ‘It’s your survival instinct’ they say, ‘It’s that state of mind that gets you out of bed, fuels your ambition, drive and individuality, it’s your lightning. Our new …

It took three years but I finally found the proper follow-up to Midlake’s The Trials of Van Occupanther in John Grant’s Queen of Denmark.  Man, I can’t believe I’d never listened to this album.  It’s filled with Midlake’s penchant for creating these wooded landscapes and D&D-lite atmosphere, but since it’s NOT their album the melancholy …
