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

With all that is wrong in the world right now, so many of us want to make a difference, we want to show support – it’s just difficult sometimes to know quite where to begin. Change is always possible, you can trust in that, but you have to use your voice; you have to stand up for what … Continued

The first I heard of them was a straight up introduction to a live show at The Troubadour, London. They were as brilliant then as they are in studio form. ‘Wake in Fright’ sounds the same live as it is below, except for one important detail; at the live show, you get to witness the relentless raw energy … Continued

A calm, confident, soothing voice, almost whispering; words about love, and family, and life – times gone by and times ahead. You never know what to expect when you press play sometimes. The genre isn’t the key; sometimes it just clicks. This is a beautiful, flawlessly crafted track, with stunning lyrical content and a gorgeous, striking … Continued
