Jack and Eliza – Hold The Line

They didn’t even need to search for each other as the tinder was set as they met as kids a while back (they’re both still in college). And it is that natural coming together that has lent their voices time […] 

Kalle Mattson – The Moon Is Gold

At the close of a bank holiday weekend the emotions that well up from deep inside tend to be ones of the raw variety rather than feelings of expectancy and excitement. Who wouldn’t rather be kicking a football, squelching on […] 

Lord Huron – Last Night You Were A Dream

Not that he was ever close to irrelevant but 2014 has seen Beck Hanson’s reinvention and may yet prove to be his best year yet. He’s already bagged a winning ‘traditional’ album called ‘Morning Phase’ but it could be his […] 

Archie Bronson Outfit – In White Relief

Beards, check; ever so disheveled yet neatly sequenced audio, check; superiorly cool and signed to generally on the money label, check; obliquely presented with miniscule media profile, check; overtly talented and not just when it comes to music, check; so […] 

The Proper Ornaments – Don’t You Want to Know (What You’re Going to Be)

You know we are all about the art of the jangle, a cul-de-sac indie offshoot that we’ve travelled down many a time and always find something new to salivate over. It’s not always about the destination you see and when […] 

Man Meets Bear – Waabgonii Giizis

For some this might sound like a recording of the moment the alien craft hit the surface of the earth but personally this provides a glimmer of hope that perhaps there is hope. Hope that something in 2014 can sound […] 

Hunter Hunted – Keep Together

Not earth shattering in the original department but there is always something to be said for a song that is true to its exuberant heart and plays it completely for fun. Hardly surprising then that ‘Keep Together’ has snagged the […] 

Gypsy & The Cat – It’s A Fine Line

The World Cup has been on so long I’ve almost forgotten how it feels not to be in awe of 22 men running around after a spherical leather object. The concept is almost daft when you think about it, how […] 

Happyness – It’s On You

So under the radar they may as well have taken up residence in a bunker at earth’s core this 3-piece London band could well become this year’s most coveted underground sensation. That’s if Happyness’ self-released debut album ‘Weird Little Birthday’ […] 

Daughter – Youth

Such was my flippant attitude towards Sons and Daughters that I somehow aligned London’s Daughters with them. Such is the lot of a head that approximates several hundred scraps of scrawled on scrunched up papers but thanks to a faultless […] 

Cults – Always Forever

You could lump this in with the Wannadies best song but then you’d have to factor in the knowledge that while Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion (!) were recording the album it comes from, ‘Static’, they were irredeemably pulling apart […] 

Sean Rowe – Madman

Despite possessing a voice that goes beyond that of Matt Berninger, a sound I cannot warm to, there is something altogether mesmerising about Sean Rowe’s baritone. And that’s even before you start digging to understand the character behind the music. […]
