Now for a little something awesome that we stumbled upon. Broken Witt Rebels – An impressive rock band, fantastic musicians, quality solos just when you need them. It’s hard to really isolate why their sound works so well, the music just has something about it; it’s big, without being noisy. It actually gets better and better … Continued

Not just one of the best bands to come out of Manchester, Autumn Ruin are up there with the very best rock bands we’ve heard this year. From anywhere. I saw them perform live before I even knew who they were, and that’s a great place to start; flawless musicianship, and a wonderfully compelling presence from … Continued

I’m not sure sometimes what it is about a band that makes you want to hear everything they’ve ever written. In this case, I wanted in particular to see more of their videos – there seems to be a genuine, effortless passion to their performance. It seems real, intriguing, and a little intimidating. What is … Continued

An overcast, dreary, very British Tuesday; a good day to talk about an exciting alternative band from Sydney, Australia. The Sunpilots. We’re absolutely loving this sound. They’re kind of fusing the whole alternative rock thing, (think Incubus, Queens of the Stone Age, System of a Down) with an almost Kate Bush kind of artistry. Lyrically, melodically, … 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

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

These guys grabbed my attention within seconds. No explanation necessary. Exciting, new, only vaguely reminiscent of The Gossip, purely because of the lead vocal, and the fact that I read it some before I listened to them – damn media influence. (Although, is that why I listened?) Now is not the time for universe contemplation. This is … Continued

If you aren’t already familiar with them, allow me to introduce you – Alvvays are a Canadian indie-pop-rock band started by close friends Molly Rankin, Kerri MacLellan, and Alec O’Hanley.  Influenced by all things indie (and a hint of Celine Dion, rumour has it) the band make melodically delightful and joyfully harmonious indie pop rock … Continued

It’s a dozen different situations, and you’re putting on the album ‘Ten’, and you know Eddie will deliver the right words, in the right way, to remind you just how futile your worries have been. It’s the real world put in the right perspective. There’s beauty when he sings; an unfiltered honesty that steals your attention … Continued
