Battles  - Mirrored  - Album Review

Battles - Mirrored - Album Review

The fact they are signed to Warp Records, Sheffield's prime exponents of all things innovative in dance culture should give some indication as to what to expect, but believe me, that's half the story.

ALBUM REVIEW
The Crimea - Secrets of The Witching Hour - Album Review

The Crimea

TheCrimea stick to the same recipe: upbeat, melodic, almost-anthemic and catchy choruses aplenty, with a wry wit to the lyrics.

ALBUM REVIEW
Two Cow Garage - III - Album Review

Two Cow Garage

Some places in Southern USA where guitars aren't messed with, rock has a country tinge, delivered by men who sound like Jack Daniel's cousin.

ALBUM REVIEW
The Academy Is.  - Santi  - Album Review

The Academy Is

'Santi' is an impressive offering that makes you sit up and take notice of a band with punk roots but with aspirations to be much more.

ALBUM REVIW
Calla - Strength in Numbers - Album Review

Calla

Every song has a delicious melodic core, sometimes heading towards the sound of dEUS, but more often staying close to the 80s rock.

The Voices - The Sound Of Young America - Album Review

The Voices

They may be the post-millennium sound of New Wales but their hearts clearly lay in another time and place - Album

The Ripps - Long Live The Ripps - Album Review

The Ripps

The Ripps debut showpiece is full to bursting with rebellious lyrics, loose jaw & slurring vocals. Album

Cold War Kids - Hospital Beds - Single Review
Cold War Kids

The tortured vocals and lyrics about 'joy and misery' comes across on the one hand as slightly pretentious - Single

Little Barrie  - Pay To Join  - Single Review
Little Barrie

This is a well-constructed, playful, single but never quite reaches the heights that it threatens. Single
