Jimi Goodwin – Terracotta Warrior

Jimi Goodwin had to make this album just to prove to himself that he didn’t need anyone else (apart from Guy Garvey of Elbow who co-wrote two of the tracks). If nothing else there goes his fear because as debut […]

First Aid Kit – My Silver Lining

With real life orchestral sounds courtesy of their move to a major label Stockholm siblings Klara and Johanna Söderberg appear to be about to move up to the next level. And the lead song from upcoming album ‘Stay Gold’ throws […]
