The Seven Deadly Sins EP review Misery Lake

The Seven Deadly Sins from Edinburgh in Scotland release their burgeoning  alternative rock 4 track EP Misery Lake on 5th June 2012. Opening with An Accident Waiting To Happen (Awoo Woo Woo) a rock-a-billy number rings out of the speakers and this is what got me in to The Seven Deadly Sins. For me could have been […]

Voilet Bones

Violet Bones is an post-new wave indie band from Cambridge in England. The hard touring quartet of Si Dartford (Vocals / Guitar), Rik Hudson (Guitar), Oz Sim (Drums) and Stuart Gill (Bass) have also found time to release their debut LP Decline Of Vaudeville and a new single Chemicals. There can be no doubt I have found a further addition […]

School Knights

School Knights is an indie-pop band from Boulder in the USA, vocally I am reminded of The Buzzcocks, no lets rephrase that - Ben Donehower, Morris Kolontyrsky, Zack Roif and Michael Stein – hark of The Buzzcocks. School Knights possess the ability to merge poignancy with a light-hearted tune that entices the listener to draw closer to the lyric before they bite […]

The Dull Blades

The Dull Blades a lo-fi garage rock band from Melbourne in the USA, formed in 2010, comprises Nik Talbot (Vocals / Guitar) and Anthony Fata ( Drums / Organ).

Ali Young

Ali Young is an alternative indie-pop singer songwriter from Los Angeles in the USA with a new EP Love Animal released in May 2012 to shout about. This is music for a night of soft BDSM as the music sheers around like a David Lynch sound-track. Not only did Ali suggest that  as a reference […]

There is always a frisson of excitement when material arrives from Sweden, a hot-bed of some of the most avant-garde and engaging music from around the world. Radjoteatern do not let the expectations down. This music seems […]

Rake Wickman

Rake Wickman originally from Greenland, but mainly influenced by the Faroe Islands, though now to be found traversing both sides of the Atlantic is a solo artist who reflects the world of ambient-rock from an affinity with the sea. The ambient experimental sounds that Rake develops can’t help but draw even the most ardent land-lubber to an integration with […]
