A big congratulations to Professor Green and Millie Mackintosh who are finally married after two years of dating!

Miles Kane - Don't Forget Who You Are Album Review


He fronted The Rascals and paired with Alex Turner to create The Last Shadow Puppets but, with his debut solo record 'Colour of the Trap', Miles Kane has stepped out from the shadows. However, they do say that the difficult second album is an indicator of whether an artist is truly any good, and now Kane returns with 'Don't Forget Who You Are' to show us what he's really made of.

Miles Kane - Don't Forget Who You Are Review

Kicking off with a punch is 'Taking Over', a track which demonstrates that Kane is evidently happy sticking with his 60s-style psychedelic pop-rock sound. A snarling guitar hurtles us into a steadfast opening verse before transforming into a livelier, foot-tapping chorus, and this dynamic makes for an engaging three minutes. We slink easily into the title track with retro style riffs and lyrical 'la la la's' that transport you straight back to Carnaby Street. Meanwhile, the snarling lyrics of 'Better Than That' complement the pacing, stomping beats of the drum and guitar and provide a contrast to the smooth contemplating of 'Fire In My Heart'.

There are points where lazy rhyming taints the talent that Kane clearly possesses. Lyrics such as "it's a tough one/it's a rough one" in the otherwise fantastic 'Tonight' and "not enraged/locked in the cage/without breaking out/I'm gonna scream and shout" in 'You're Gonna Get It' simply sound contrived. However, 'Out of Control' and 'Fire in my Heart' are comprised of heartfelt and mindful lyrics that prove Kane can really write when he puts his mind to it.

Bonobo - The North Borders

Albums of Note... Bonobo, aka Simon Green, may not have found instant stardom in his career but his work is characterised by a steady progress that is reflected in his tracks. North Borders is the fifth studio album from Bonobo and he calls on a range of influences, from hip-hop, soul, jazz and dubstep, to create a sound that has gradually developed into his own distinctive sound. Bonobo calls on a few friends for this album, notably Erykah Badu, who sings on ‘Heaven for the Sinner,’ a twinkling take on modern soul.

“What sets Bonobo apart in an overly crowded marketplace… is an expert ability to channel myriad influences from outside of his sphere into something that works perfectly inside it, not just within a single track but start-to-finish across an album.”
