Chemical Brothers The Cranberries

It's been quite a ride for us music-wise this month, with a glorious blend of dance, R&B, indie-pop and folk-rock releases plus a surprise compilation that has done nothing to dampen our excitement. Here are seven of April's most listenable albums that you ought to add to your Spotify library now.

The Chemical Brothers - No Geography

Big Beat pioneers The Chemical Brothers released their first album in four years, and while it hasn't reached the number one status of previous record Born in the Echoes, it has already received critical acclaim. It's by no means perfect, but there's something different at every turn from mind-bending psychedelia to dance-worthy floorfillers.

Marina - Love + Fear
(April 26)

Marine and the Diamonds is set to drop her first album under her new mononym and it's quite the psychological exploration. It consists of two eight-track sides dealing with 'Love' and 'Fear' respectively as a nod to psychologist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross' theory that these are the two dominant human emotions.

Happy New Year, music lovers! 2018 was a cracker for great albums, and the coming 12 months also promises to shape up. Here’s just ten of the most exciting new album releases scheduled for 2019.

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey has been teasing the release of her fifth studio album, with the working title Norman F***ing Rockwell, since the end of the summer. This week, she trailed it with the release of new single and video, with the unwieldy title ‘hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me…but I have it’, representing the fourth cut from the LP. There’s no release date as yet, but the last we heard LDR5 was going to appear in the first half of 2019.

Guns N Roses Weezer You Me At Six Chemical Brothers Sir Paul McCartney Super Furry Animals


Guns N’ Roses’ guitarist Slash has dropped the strongest hint yet that a new album from the legendary rock group might be on the way.

Bluedot Festival 2018 Preview

Chemical Brothers Future Islands

With the majority of new festivals following formula and convention, and being anything but orthodox, Bluedot has broken the mould and purposely curated a festival like no other in the UK - amalgamating science, art and music in all into one incredible event.  

Bluedot Festival 2018Bluedot Festival 2018

Imagine astrophysics and electronica, cosmology and hip hop, theoretical physics and soul, quantum mechanics and the Chemical Brothers. All are subjects which you'd probably never see conjoined in a sentence, let alone at a festival.

Chemical Brothers - Printworks, London 02.12.2017 Live Review

After a year of mostly hiding, Chemical Brothers returned to the DJ booth for a set of three gigs that highlighted their supreme popularity in the industry.  

Chemical Brothers - Printworks, London 02.12.2017 Live Review

Despite only playing a 'DJ set' as opposed to their phenomenal 'Live Shows', the duo would play Motion in Bristol on December 1st, and Manchester's Warehouse Project on December 9th. However, the hottest ticket by far would be their December 2nd gig at London and the UK's greatest venue - Printworks.  

With their 'Live sets', you know exactly what to expect the moment they walk on stage; 90 minutes of pure Chemical Brothers, amalgamating the best of their entire back catalogue, all 8 studio albums spanning over a 20-year career.

Creamfields Festival 2015 Live Review

Bringing Ibiza to a field just outside Liverpool, Creamfields was back again, with a plethora of headline disc jockeys, showcasing Creamfields as the powerhouse of UK-electronic festivals. With as many headline acts and big room DJs as Ibiza, the only thing the Daresbury site cannot guarantee is the Mediterranean weather, though after years of being unfortunate to receive bad weather on a biblical scale, it was about time the festival punters fell serendipitously to some great weather. 

Creamfields Festival 2015 Live Review

Everything about the festival now seems augmented, revamped, rejuvenated and seemingly reinvigorated. Both outside stages, the tents, and the brand new 15,000 capacity mega arena seemed to have massively upped the ante, with grade A lighting and theatre to match the quality of the artists orchestrating their crowd below. Whilst stage hopping is very accessible, the frustrating part of Creamfields is down to the embarrassment of riches they portray in the artists they book, which any regular Glastonbury reveller will tell you is the most vexing part of the festival - missing artists you want to see.  

Despite being a three-day festival, Saturday is the main attraction, as tents stay open long into the morning, providing that Ibiza like mentality. From 5pm-4am, the choices were overwhelming and this was the crowds' predicament. Annie Mac or Dannie Howard? Above And Beyond or Armin van Buuren? Chemical Brothers, Avicii or Jooris Voorn? Maya Jane Coles, Laidback Luke or Hot since 82? Alesso, Seth Troxler, Pete Tong or Steve Angello? Knife Party or Gorgon City? The set clashes were inevitable, though the positive outcome to this is that the stages never seem chaotically rammed to the extent of ruining the music and atmosphere, like with the Swedish House Mafia in 2011.

Creamfields 2015 - Preview

It's that time of the year again. Bank Holiday weekend in August. The time of the summer when Ibiza crash lands just outside Liverpool all because of a three-day weekender. We are of course talking about the UK's most sought after dance festival - Creamfields.

Creamfields 2015 - Preview

With Global Gathering taking a year sabbatical from the festival calendar, Creamfields is now unequivocally the biggest and greatest electronic line up in the isles, boasting huge headline acts over the three-day festival, amalgamating new acts such as David Zowie, all the way through to the veterans like Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Tiesto and Paul Van Dyke.

With more festival exclusives than anyone else, whilst impulsively pumping much money into production and expansion, the festival has now firmly cemented itself as the go to premiere electronic-music festival, and will undoubtedly go off with more pyrotechnics and fireworks than a Chinese New Year.
