There doesn’t seem to be a single video or track out by Vaults that is not brilliant. Incredibly intriguing lyrics, with a flawless rise and fall within the music, and beautiful, honest vocals. This is what we’d call softly powerful sounds, or quietly loud escapism; music with feeling, expressed in just the way we need … Continued

A blessing to discover something of depth and skill and clarity. Lashings of simple yet powerful lyrics repeat throughout the music of Angel Olsen, music which in itself is fairly minimal; guitar, synthesized ambiance, reverb washed vocals – yet it’s extremely effective – some kind of winning recipe, achieved only occasionally in a world overflowing … Continued

A hypnotizing new track and video from a compelling artist, slowly but surely making waves in the music world. Kacy Hill released ‘Foreign Fields’ in September, and the accompanying EP ‘Bloo’ came out just last week. Soft and striking vocals stand tall next to a fairly minimal, yet extremely effective trip-hop style backing. Here’s the video. Soaked in … Continued

‘Not That Way’ is the stunning debut EP from 17 year old Elisabeth Lopez. A stylish and powerful collection of songs, written and performed by the singer, and based on her own personal experiences. All five tracks showcase an incredibly talented songwriter, with a beautiful and unique voice, and genuine, raw, real emotion. We absolutely love … Continued

The wonderful way of the web – someone shares a festival they’re playing at, you visit said festivals website to see what it’s all about, you wind up sifting through the line-up for names you haven’t heard of, faces you don’t recognize. Suddenly you’re immersed in a sea of undiscovered beauty. Empress Of appeared to … Continued

When genre becomes irrelevant; when a vocal is so smooth and compelling, so stylish and sweet; so brand new sounding in a heavily electronic era. Just 8 seconds into ‘Keep us Together‘ and we were hooked. A bouncy, joyful, summer vibe; energetic and fairly organic – that genuine live band sound. A really great song. Then … Continued

The 1st of October marks the long awaited release of a brand new track from Australia’s quietly bold gem, Matt Corby. Nothing has quite grabbed us for a while in the way that ‘Brother’ did some years ago, but ‘Monday’, his brand new release, is a beautifully crafted track, with a beautifully placed simple clap … Continued

Your favourite new sound. Pretty much everything you want in a live band. Reggae, ska, dubby rock, joy, dancing, melodies, big hair. A happy fusion of sounds from all over the globe, a little bit of an Incubus meets Sublime vibe, but with even more colour, and slightly less swearing. We expect festivals will feel empty without … Continued

I haven’t been excited about a heavier sounding band since I scratched up all of my Papa Roach, Puddle of Mudd, Seether, and Audioslave CD’s in a low quality car system five years ago. What a poor sentence to open with, way too lengthy, I apologize. Anyway, five years is a long time to be without a … Continued

We waited, he knew we would. Back with a bang is an understatement; this new track is better than ever. Mac Miller is a real guy, watch the interviews – he makes what he wants but he cares what you think. And that’s a good thing. You helped put him where he is today. This … Continued

“I was most wicked in those days; I stole a bun from my darling girl, and ran away with it. A most unpleasant experience – extremely unpleasant, I promise you.” Whatever your level of involvement in the world of Dubstep, or even Electronic Music as a whole – as the one giant, limitless genre that … Continued
