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

Snarky Puppy – Family Dinner Vol. II

Good Tiger – A Head Full Of Moonlight

It’s so refreshing to have new artists like this. An incredibly successful Indiegogo campaign, plus support from fans hailing from all walks of metal and alt-rock, pretty much completely predicted that this would be a super-group to look out for. But Good Tiger are so much more than that. With members rising from the ashes …Read More
