The Sun Hotel – Self-Titled EP

The Sun Hotel are creating music similar to that of American emo/acoustic bands such as Modern Baseball and The Front Bottoms but ensure that they aren’t just another copycat by imprinting some firm British terminology and twang to proceedings.

Ashestoangels/Farewell My Love @ Thekla, Bristol

So for this review, I went on a boat ride (after a train ride across the border to the lovely rainy city of Bristol). The first challenge for me would be to get over my fear of boats and open water and actually get on the boat which I did complete with only a minor freak-out. But all in the name of music and to celebrate (and commiserate) the end of the British Horror Story Tour.

More Than Most/The Afterparty @ O2 Islington

Today's ventures took me back to London to the O2Academy2 in Islington to see More Than Most headlining and filming their live music video for their next single.

Blood Youth/Trash Boat at The Barfly Camden

The Barfly in Camden is a small yet respectable venue, which has witnessed many bands arriving through its doors in hopes of creating an atmosphere of pure music bliss for fans. On this occasion the venue was taken over by Blood Youth for their "Inside My Head" tour...

Downers – Noose

With fuzzy gained up guitars and strangely soothing vocals over the top, Downers' new EP Noose takes us on a trip right back to the roots of grunge music. The 3 track EP consists of heavy guitars blasting power chords right down your throat during instrumental breaks, whilst giving generally stripped back verses consisting of calming vocals, straight drum beats and eerie clean/reverberated guitars.

NASS Festival Review

‘My marbles are somewhere in that field.’ – A man named Dave. Once again the summer festival season has hit the ground running and everyone seems to be going mad for it. None more so then the humble Nass festival which is situated in South West England at the prestigious Bath and West Showground’s and yours truly was lucky enough to gain access to report the Simmonds Standard.
