Rozi Plain – Actually

They (the mp3s) may not be flowing forth as frequently from mp3hugger these days but it is a mere temporary turtling I can assure you. In the meantime activities can be best observed via a spotify and fluence profile. Now […] 

Remi Miles – Riviera Girl

Brighton’s Remi Miles has managed to take the 80’s into the new century in so much that he has recorded a song that could have come from back then but has somehow had the wherewithal to not sound positively ancient […] 

Ghost Culture – Guidecca

James Greenwood as Ghost Culture lives in the magical world that is co-inhabited by Daniel Avery (hardly surprising then that they both reside on the same London record label). The collective drone logic appears to be that the earlier pioneers […] 

Cowbell – She’s All Over You

Truth be told I can’t tell my Farfisa from my Korg but the signature sound that emanates from Cowbell’s ‘She’s All Over You’ always has me in raptures. The Doors remain its finest purveyor and along the way the Inspiral […] 

Your Headlights Are On – We Real Cool, We

In 2011 a quartet of graduates from the improvised music programme at Trondheim University got together and recorded an album together under the name of Your Headlights Are On. Then they promptly disappeared without trace which is a shame given […] 

Pinkshinyultrablast – Holy Forest

Shoegaze, although it hit its peak over 2 decades ago, still contrives to accord us gems. Who’d have thought that a sound that is severely narrow in its approach could find the wherewithal to still induce shivers. St. Petersburg band […] 

Flower Jacket – Everybody Knows

Presenting a band in its first flush of youth so it is hardly surprising that their debut single is a loose collection of rolling brightness. Made up of a New Yorker and 3 others from Los Angeles Flower Jacket prove […] 

Myriam Gendron – Solace

While it sometimes feels as frustrating as the quest to discover life beyond our solar system there is an unquenchable joy in arriving at artists such as Montreal’s Myriam Gendron. It’s still early days but it seems the girl has […] 

Gengahr – Powder

For most bands it is a lottery, throwing your hat (and crucially your talent) into the ring with all the other like-minded souls with nothing more than the dream of riches (or at the very least a modicum of attention) […] 

Aurora – Under Stars

With the not so small matter of another small person that looks like us entering our lives I have had to put off writing here for a bit. Building up quite a stock of tunes mind you for the eventual […] 

Minnie Birch – Snowman

With a long stretch of holiday time still to come and the temperatures turning every scene into something from a Christmas card it is hard not to be joyful. And with little Hugger number 3 settling in well after her […] 

Bell Gardens – Take Us Away

Bell Gardens (comprised of Kenneth James Gibson and Brian McBride of Stars of the Lid fame) and the sound they make is not at all what you’d expect to arrive from the sultry streets of LA. This is sound to […]
