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

Kodaline EP Review

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

Brother Strut Gig Review

I didn’t know who Brother Strut were, but after their gig tonight (12/10/17) at the O2 Academy I most certainly do. Formed back in 2012, Brother Strut are a funk-soul act with saxophonist and producer Stevie Jones. The group includes Paul Turner (bass), Sam Tanner (keys and vocals), Frankie Tontoh (drums) and Otha Smith (electric …Read More

Yonaka EP Review

An E.P launch can be one of the most challenging, awkward situation inducing moments of a band’s career. Have we got enough people? Have we got enough publicity? Are we fully confident in who we are as a band at this early stage? Yonaka don’t ask themselves these questions. They don’t need to. They simply …Read More

saintmotelevision: Music to Move to

Saint Motel came to my – and a large audience in the UK – attention in the 2015 version of the excellent EA Sports Fifa soundtrack with their song, My Type. This track, from their 2012 album Voyeur, represents the band’s first taste of real chart success, and saintmotelevision is very much built in the mould …Read More

Blaenavon – 5/4/17

Rating: Just two days before the release of their extremely long-awaited and anticipated debut album, ‘That’s Your Lot’, Blaenavon took to Birmingham’s Hare and Hounds to erupt frenzy and excitement amongst their Brummie fans. Before the band has even taken the stage, a small group has gathered down front already dripping in sweat from their …Read More

With summer fast approaching, Valefest stepped up their promotional campaign in the Duck and Scholar pub on Thursday night, hoping to pique the interest of first year students most of whom will be unaware of the festival’s charms. This follows on from the Wednesday night’s launch party pt.1 at the packed out Bristol Pear, which …Read More
