Nomad Carlos

Nomad Carlos is a ‘Miami born, Kingston bred’ hip-hop artist, making a big impact on the scene in Jamaica. Lyrics that relate to everyday life and impeccable delivery make him well worthy of praise. Nathan Sturgeon has set out to pursue his own career in music, so this may well be the last review from Nathan […]

Yes Sir Boss

Matthew Sellors (lead vocals/guitar), Luke Potter (guitar), Tom First (trumpet), Jahen Adbel-Malak (sax), Josh Stopford (bass) and Reuben Nimmo (drums) make up the Bristol in England based, Indie-ska outfit Yes Sir Boss. The band songs are riddles with catchy hooks, both vocally and on the horn sections, that put a smile on your face and have you […]

Set It Free

Set It Free are a 5-piece pop punk band from Brick, New Jersey in the USA. Formed in 2011, the band consists of Andrew Williams (vocals), Joey DeAngelo (Guitar), Mike Gurnari (Guitar), Patrick Dwyer (bass) and Victor Pascale (drums).

Letters – EP review – Older Motion Pictures

The Scottish indie outfit Letters were featured in February, coinciding with their March release of the single The Halfway House. However their four track debut EP Older Motion Pictures was released in May, meaning another review is over-due! The opener Explosions showcases catchy riff after catchy riff, leaving all the focus of the guitar with never entering […]

Firstborn

Firstborn comprises of Marcus Carlzon, Joachim Ragnarsson, Max Pontén and Aron Bergström. What is certain is that the Boras (Sweden) based band know their sound. The metal that seems to be coming out of Europe at the moment is certainly recognisable; a much more clean and polished finish than what you would traditionally call metal. I […]

Farmertan

Farmertan is a progressive rock band from Connecticut in the USA. The quartet of Paul Daddario (Vocal / Guitar),  Mike Fitzgerald (Guitar), Jim Plouffe (Drums) and Matt Galvin (Bass) formed in the summer of 1992, and since then have released ‘close to 9 albums’ (I’m not 100% sure what that means, I assume it means 8 […]

Mr. Meeble

Nathan’s thoughts on Mr. Meeble – an electronic out-fit from Phoenix, Arizona in the USA; comprising of Devin Fleenor, Michael Plaster and Rick Heins. The trio has an interesting sound; as with a lot of ‘chilled’ electro, it’s a hard sound to dislike. The songs are well constructed and very professional sounding, leading me to […]

Noah T

Noah T is unlike any artists I have reviewed before. The ‘usual’ for me is bands, with vocals, and usually rock based. Noah T is from Tulsa, Oklahoma in the USA; and for one man he makes a beautiful, spooky, and emotional sound. Using layers of acoustic guitar, bass, chord organ, bells, melodica and hand […]

Inspire Influence – Review of Planet Destroyer EP

Inspire Influence were covered by us in March of this year, however due to their new five track release Planet Destroyer  which is due out in  the next few weeks, a new review is in order!   The ambient Kepler 22. With its beautiful synth intro, the song slowly builds with wailing layers being subtly […]

Me N Ma Girls

When music is used to challenge and really make a difference, it is when it is at its strongest. No one is challenging preconceptions more than the Me N Ma Girls, the first all-girl pop group to come out of Burma. ….I thank Nathan for taking the time to get on the politics of music, […]
