You Me At Six hide any hint of their pop punk past with a more adult set. The Surrey five piece have come a long way from their All Time Low wannabe first album, frontman Josh Franceschi shows more confidence than ever before.

Following on from his brilliant 2012 record 'Maraqopa' Damien Jurado's new record 'Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son' is set to be released in January. The record has also been made with Richard Swift at PLACE and current song 'Silver Timothy' is an exciting glimpse of what await

This is brand new from French electronic exploration project, Velour Modular. Forward is the debut track from a forthcoming Capsule EP that draws in influences like William Blake and numerology.

Eminem may be beginning to ‘feel like a rap god,’ but he certainly isn’t starting to sound like one. That happened over ten years ago. Yes, ten years. And if you’d have asked the 41 year old from Detroit in his prime if he’d wanted to sound like Kid Rock in 2013 he’d have probably said >>

Remember the chillwave explosion? How about all the dance-pop groups of the mid-to-late 2000s? And then the Hives, the Vines, etc...? Yeah, it's been difficult to watch, to put it lightly. But every so often, an act comes along that appears to have struck the right balance between the buzz and >>

Kiss Land could have easily relied on the vocals to sell itself (Tesfaye possesses one of the finest voices around) but it’s the unorthodox production that really sets it apart. In one of his rare interviews The Weeknd speaks of the album being about not being comfortable where you are and it >>

Today's re-imagining of 'The Wall' by it's protagonist and creator, Roger Waters is a completely different beast. The original 1979 concept was based mainly around the whimsical dilemmas faced by your average millionaire rockstar, in 2013 'The Wall' has matured into a fully blown anti-war statement >>

Rituals is the latter achieving its goal rather admirably. It may not top many ‘Album of the year’ lists but it will top many ‘Top 25 most played’ iTunes lists. It’s an enjoyable ride and despite being 50 minutes long it flies by in a flash.
