King Krule – The OOZ Album Review

With his rough jazz sound and iconic groaning, Archy Marshall storms back on the music scene with his second full length album under the alias King Krule. The OOZ is a luxurious indulgence, a very repeatable album and could well become a modern classic with the 23-year-old putting his heart on his sleeve. A range …Read More

The National – ‘Sleep Well Beast’ Album Review

Rating: I’d honestly be happy to drown myself in concept albums for the rest of my days, if every one continued to sound like The Nationals new Sleep Well Beast. A seeps under your skin and stays there kind of painful, it’s completely intoxicating and I still can’t get it out of my head – …Read More

Album Review: Pure Comedy by Father John Misty

Rating: 5/5 Josh Tillman has become a celebrity over the course of the last couple of years. He achieved moderate notoriety as the drummer for the Fleet Foxes, and after a series of more sombre albums under the moniker ‘J. Tillman’, but Father John Misty – the cynical, self-loathing maverick who, in 2015’s I Love …Read More

The XX-I See You

Rating: The London trio have not disappointed with their new album. After teasing fans with the release of two singles, ‘On Hold’ and ‘Say something loving’, the album was finally released January 13th.

Lady Gaga – Joanne

Rating: As a massive fan of Lady Gaga, this review is bound to be biased. However, no one can deny that this refreshing change to authentic country music hasn’t come as a pleasant surprise.

Rating: Solange has undoubtedly earned her seat at the table with her fresh new album that dropped on the 27th September. The album is the work of a woman who has fully matured in her art, she has embraced a new sound and perspective which has manifested itself in a creation that isn’t far from …Read More

The Last Shadow Puppets – Everything You’ve Come To Expect

Rating: It’s been a long time coming, the sequel to 2008’s The Age of Understatement, and eight years on The Last Shadow Puppets’ sophomore effort had big shoes to fill. Fresh off the back of two number-one Arctic Monkeys albums, Alex Turner teamed up with his friend Miles Kane off The Rascals to produce the …Read More

Snarky Puppy – Family Dinner Vol. II

Rating: It’s so hard to write a review about a band that’s as unique as Snarky Puppy. It’s just so rare to see a band who’ve simply release album after album with practically universal acclaim. That ridiculously frustrating paradox to make something that’s so incredibly virtuosic and creative, but still crucially accessible to the masses, …Read More

The Crookes – Lucky Ones

Rating: Name hailing from the suburb of Crookes in Sheffield, indie pop connoisseurs The Crookes have been busy in the past eight years creating five albums, winning The Guardian Band of the day (2009) and setting up their own record label. This year they’re back with yet another album of toe tapping, head bobbing bangers …Read More
