Future Islands are an American synth-pop band and ‘Singles’ was released in 2014. It was their fourth album and they have a new one coming out soon. The success and rise of the album was due in part to their appearance on ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ where they played a rousing single, ‘Seasons’, leadContinue reading “Future Island- Singles”
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 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”
‘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”

Obviously, he put in the effort as it was his debut record but I’m just talking about the overall feel. This is the first DeMarcoContinue reading “Mac DeMarco-2”
I had only heard Best Coast’s debut, ‘Crazy For You’ because it somehow ended up on my laptop. I liked a few tracks off it like ‘Boyfriend’ and ‘I Want To’, and I dug the whole surf/dream pop thing. What stood out though were the lyrics, which I thought were as predictable as water being wet.Continue reading “Best Coast- Fade Away”
Savages debut album ‘Silence Yourself‘ was excellent, ‘Adore Life‘ is twice as good. I can see how ‘Silence Yourself‘ was so well received by fans and critics but their follow up is kind of perfect! They’ve replaced the chaos and madness with a more controlled madness, building an album that twists and turns throughout withoutContinue reading “Savages-Adore Life”
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.
Did some CD shopping and ticked a few essentials off my list. What do you guys think?
When I heard about Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf’s new project El Vy, I couldn’t wait to hear what they would deliver. It was only when I heard about the project that I discovered Menomena, and their sound mixed with Berninger’s voice had the potential to be something special. I also knew it was probablyContinue reading “El Vy- Return To The Moon”
