The xx- I See You

Oh boys. Oh boys. Ohboysohboysohboys! What a fucking album ‘I See You‘ is. One of the best first time listens I’ve ever had, it’s almost flawless.  To see where The xx have come from and see how they have progressed and changed without fearing the reaction is amazing.  If you take anything away from anyContinue reading “The xx- I See You”

John Grant-Queen Of Denmark

John Grant is one of those artists who can pull off almost anything. His album ‘Queen Of Denmark’ consists of songs filled with humour, relationship break ups, religion and general life issues.  A collaboration with the band Midlake, its pop, synth-pop, folk and electronic. He also showcases his skills on the piano in most tracks.Continue reading “John Grant-Queen Of Denmark”

Glass Animals-Zaba

‘Zaba‘ is the debut album by English band Glass Animals released in 2014. I hadn’t heard of them until I came home last summer and a few friends were raving on about them. So what’s all the fuss about? A strange mix of hip-hop beats, jungle sounds and alt/indie rock makes up the album. It’sContinue reading “Glass Animals-Zaba”

Track Of The Week-Savages-Adore

I bought Savages second album ‘Adore Life‘ a week ago and I can’t stop listening to ‘Adore’. I liked their first album, but I love this second effort. Have a listen to ‘Adore’ below.

Van Halen-Van Halen

   ‘Van Halen’ is the debut album by Van Halen. They were already a big deal on the local scene before this came out and Eddie Van Halen was well known for being an up and coming leader guitarist in the industry. Funnily enough, I first heard Van Halen in ‘Back To The Future’, butContinue reading “Van Halen-Van Halen”

Nine Inch Nail- The Downward Spiral

Look, ‘The Downward Spiral’ has ‘Closer’, ‘March Of The Pigs’, ‘Hersey’, ‘Reptile’, ‘Piggy’ AND ‘Hurt’. That’s enough for most albums to be remembered 50 years down the line. The Downward Spiral has about five more tracks on par with these, so needless to say its special. This album sounds completely different to ‘Pretty Hate Machine’Continue reading “Nine Inch Nail- The Downward Spiral”

Grimes-Visions

Visions is Grimes third album released in 2012. I heard ‘Oblivion’ around that time and liked it so I kept tabs on what she was doing. It wasn’t until 2014 that I bought the album and I wish I had it two years earlier!! Subsequently, my girlfriend and I went mad for Grimes, and weContinue reading “Grimes-Visions”

Track Of The Week-The XX-On Hold

I’m starting a track of the week section purely to share the new XX track. It’s just out today with an album to follow on January 17th. Compared to previous XX material, its different, more lively and incredibly creative, have a listen and enjoy. G.M

Stone Temple Pilots-Core

Core is the first album released by Stone Temple Pilots. Like many other hard rock bands such as Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam that came to prominence in the 90’s, STP had the hard rock sound, long hair, screaming vocals and drugs, except maybe they had a more consistent heavy grunge rock sound. YouContinue reading “Stone Temple Pilots-Core”
