Music Review: Lea Porcealin Remixed

Despite all the splendid sunshine, the equivalent of a sonic German solar eclipse happened when Lea Porcelain released their debut album ‘Hymns To The Night’

Music: War on Drugs – Nothing To Find

Without doubt my favourite band of the last couple of years, The War on Drugs have a new video out directed by Ben Fee. The track ‘Nothing To Find’ comes from their latest, glorious record ‘A Deeper Understanding’.

Music Review: Bully – Losing

Anyone who has paid attention to the deplorable state of affairs that is currently being exposed throughout so called Tinsel-Town at the present moment will hopefully have also noticed the fantastic, if extremely difficult, uncomfortable, selfless and personal emotively exposing tales of women who have been treated disgracefully by peers and those who wave power like a phallic carrot.

Music: Lower Slaughter – What Big Eyes

The opening riff on Lower Slaughter’s debut album brazenly and beautifully starts like the classic notes to a seriously cool moment in a Tarantino Grindhouse movie…..

Music Review: Arcade Fire – Everything Now

The fifth album from Arcade Fire opens with a brief plaintiff, maudlin, dejected repetitive lyrics that could possibly represent the ever so familiar repetitive humdrum and daily grind, the not so halcyon days of modern living.

Music: Prinicipe Valiente – Oceans

To a UK audience there is an immediate similarity in lead singer Fernando Honorato’s vocals to Brett Anderson of Suede, and indeed if you are going to be a singer, that’s one hell of a range to be able to run parallel too.

Live Review: The New Pornographers

The big 3 of the band (now an 8-piece), A.C. Newman, Neko Case, and Dan Bejar have all come to prominence and gained further acclaim as successful solo acts, and either gotten married, had kids, or been stricken by other serious life stuff.
