Reviews on Burn FM

Media Ball 2017

I’ve always thought it bizarre that the media groups in the Guild of Students have an insurmountable rivalry that, for the most part, prevents them from working on larger projects together. It seems already that this academic year is different thanks to a combined effort from all sides – Burn has already been working with …Read More

Album Review: Utopia by Björk

Over the years, Iceland’s Björk has released some of the most influential and essential electronic albums of all time. Her unique voice and use of strange electronics has made for one of the most compelling discographies in modern history. Albums like 1995s Post and 1997s Homogenic have solidified their place in music history as some …Read More

Album Review: Harbor by Tomppabeats

Tomppabeats, a.k.a. DJ Casshiss, a.k.a. Tomppaisnothere, and with his real name being Tomi Lahtinen, is a member of a niche genre of music in lofi hip-hop.

Gig Review: Wolf Alice

The title of Wolf Alice’s Mercury nominated debut My Love Is Cool perfectly captures what I love about the North London based four-piece; they are so damn cool and they seem to know it. The album confidently combined grungy guitar riffs and vocal freak-outs with just the right amount of restraint and tenderness to make …Read More

Gig Review: Enter Shikari

Enter Shikari visited Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena on the seventh stop of what will be a worldwide tour last Friday. Immediately you knew you were in the right place just by surveying the crowd; the cult following of the experimental-rock quartet were out in force, with what seemed like every third person rocking explosively dyed hair. …Read More

Gig Review: Father John Misty

Father John Misty’s near 80-minute album Pure Comedy was always destined for a big world tour. After the success of I Love You, Honeybear and his Brit nomination combined with his notorious onstage antics lecturing his crowds about either rejected ‘burrito money’ or the state of the U.S. political or entertainment scene – this run …Read More

EP Review: Secure The Bag!

AJ Tracey’s fifth EP, Secure The Bag! was released on the 6th October 2017, and has proved in instant hit, debuting in the UK Album Charts at number thirteen. It would be unfair to the West London MC to label this EP, or any of his work, simply as ‘grime’ music, as he himself said …Read More

EP Review: I Wouldn’t Be

Released on the 13th of October this hotly awaited EP hints at what is about to come from Kodaline’s third album. The EP demonstrates the talents and changes to the vibe of the band and works to excite avid fans of what is to come next year. With four tracks included, the EP gives a …Read More

EP Review: Hippo campus

On 12th September Hippo Campus released the EP ‘Warm Glow’ consisting of three songs, ‘Baseball’, ‘Traveler’ and title track ‘Warm Glow’, and I’m happy to say that their instantly likeable Phoenix/Two Door Cinema Club vibe continues. When I saw Hippo Campus back in January at Thekla, a small boat used as a concert venue in Bristol, they lit up …Read More

FUZE Review: ‘Everyone’s Private Gig’

You may be yet to discover this upcoming student run event but after their second event, it’s clear that Fuze is not one to miss. Set in the lesser known but intimate venue of Suki10c, nestled in the heart of Digbeth, Fuze welcomed a sold out crowd, desperate for some underground music and a great …Read More
