Vampire Weekend-Vampire Weekend

I’ve to admit something before I start. When I first heard ‘A-Punk’ I thought Vampire Weekend were just another blip in the ocean of average one-hit wonder bands that were floating around in the late noughties. I thought “fuck sake, everyone going mad again for a shit 3 something minute song”. Oh I was soooContinue reading “Vampire Weekend-Vampire Weekend”

Track Of The Week-HIBOU-Above Us

HIBOU ARE BLOWIN’ UP. I saw HIBOU in Seattle as a support act to El Vy about a year ago. They were a perfect support act because they had everyone jumping around and really set us up for a great night. Check them out online and start with Above Us!

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”

Track Of The Week-El Vy- No Time To Crank The Sun

I love El Vy. Their album ‘Return To The Moon is one of the best albums of 2015 and has so many stand out tracks. My track of the day is a beaut, No Time To Crank The Sun is one I have on repeat on a regular basis. Have a listen because if youContinue reading “Track Of The Week-El Vy- No Time To Crank The Sun”

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

The Antlers-Familiars

‘Familiars’ was released in 2014 and brought with it the usual acclaim an Antlers album does. It is The Antlers fifth album and you would expect to see the pattern of growth musically continue. I’m giving the album a listen and reviewing it at the same time, so this is based off first impression, albeitContinue reading “The Antlers-Familiars”

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”
