Aiko – Fortune’s Child

Aiko's Fortune's Child was released Friday 13th October, a day that is meant to be bad luck. I feel like it was unlucky that it took me nearly two months to find the time to listen.

Lydia have revealed the details of their 7th album! Liqour is set to be released through Weekday Records, an imprint of the Sony label, on July 13! If the record is anything like lead single Goodside, then we are in for a treat as this is a slice of pure emo-tinged indie heaven. Check out Goodside below; [YouTube […]

Fortune And Glory – Effigies

An Indie folk-rock band from Asheville, North Carolina known as Fortune And Glory have set the date of January 13th, 2017 for their EP Effigies to be released. I had the wonderful opportunity to have a listen! The EP starts off with a slow strumming of the guitar, a unique vibe is set making the […]

Dorje, Audio, Glasgow

Today’s gig was a last minute add for me as the gig I was going to see was cancelled. Not know anything about any of the bands but the opening band Eva Plays Dead. So walking into a sold out Audio I was there with an open mind. When Eva Plays Dead  started their set […]

Losing Ground – Old Glory

If they slowed down the vocals but kept the playful speed of the mandolin I would have liked Old Glory a lot more. It shows great potential but, being an EP it doesn't give them time to show all of what they have to give and I suspect they are better live than what is shown on this EP.

Wille and the Bandits & Elles Bailey @ 100 Club, London | Review

Sometimes you don’t always see and feel the connection between band members, but with these guys you do. You see they are each other’s breath. Their talent and love of music is unquestionable. And tonight, is another reason why Wille and the Bandits are one of the UK’s best kept secrets and showcase one of Joe Bonnamasa's favourite slide guitarists.

Dawes, ‘We’re All Gonna Die’ – Album Review

Their folk-y, psychedelic, pop-rock sound is ever present in this musical journey with an overarching calming summery vibe. Although summer is basically over, this album will have you looking forward to next year's. As Jim James said, “The record sounds so fresh—yet fills me with a strange nostalgia for things that haven't happened yet."

Red Moon Road Release Live Session!

The path towards the new Red Moon Road album, ‘Sorrows and Glories’, began with a shattered leg, a cancelled tour and a long 2000 km trip home. Luckily, the Winnipeg folk trio is known for surviving adversity, spinning stories into songs and, more often, breaking hearts with stunning musicianship.
