Steven Battelle – ‘Exit Brain Left’

Released December 2nd under his own label ‘Suffer For My Art’, Steven Battelle brought us his mesmerizing debut solo album, titled ‘Exit Brain Left’. Describing his own genre as ‘elaborate’, listening to the album it definitely accurately represents his music. It’s almost a case of David Bowie meets Enter Shikari and The Beatles, three bands […]

JPNSGRLS – Nice N Sleazy, Glasgow

Starting the night were Sunny Devils. They provide a stripped back sound with great vocals, even if he was not really pushing his voice (either that or he was just that good). The drums are too soft at times but due to stripped back sound, you can’t have metal drum thrashes. Simple but elegant guitar […]

Celeb Car Crash – People Are The Best Show

Imagine a world where the mid-2000’s never ended. A happier place, full of Hot Topic t-shirts, mighty fringes, jeans tight enough to cut off any blood supply they may ever have again and My Chemical Romance still in existence (and not in that strange neon phase that accompanied ‘Danger Days’).  A time when eyeliner was […]

Mummy, Puppy, Demob Happy & Big Spring @ Brooklyn Bowl London

Team Walf and Brooklyn Bowl Rising Rocks presented a brilliant lineup showcasing four of the best up and coming alternative rock bands in the UK. First on the bill was Mummy, a sludge/stoner rock four piece. The band came on to a still gathering crowd, with little response. However once they started playing more people […]

Bowling For Soup – Drunk Dynasty

  For many years, there have been comedy bands. Weird Al Yankavich, Steel Panther, Spinal Tap, Tenacious D and the likes have left us chortling away whilst also delivering some truly kick-ass tunes, yet each of these acts share one huge part of what makes them who they are. All of them are a parody […]

Nervus – Permanent Rainbow

  The more I listen to this album, the more I enjoy it all, and the more it invades your mind. It’s easy listening, radio friendly, feel good Indie Rock music. It’s almost like modern day Indie and punk rock from the Naughties had a musical baby. The major tonality throughout the album is very […]

Convention-defying melodic punks Darko are pleased to reveal a high octane live video for ‘Canthus Viewpoints’, the last track to be taken from the Sea of Trees EP, out now on Lockjaw Records (Drones, Antillectual, Belvedere). Containing an eye-watering amount of intense, shred-laden skate punk that barrels along at a pace that would drain the […]
