Dream Affair

Dream Affair

It’s been awhile since I’ve written about coldwave on here. It’s not everyday you get to discover a coldwave band worthy of mentioning but I’ve just recently come across Dream Affair who appear to be a cross-Atlantic band, dividing time between NYC and Berlin. No easy feat! By the time this is published, they would...



Oum Shatt

Oum Shatt

A very strange but delightful find on Soundcloud this evening. Oum Shatt from Berlin – to my naivete I though they sounded very The XX-ey. It’s the guitars. However, Oum Shatt describe themselves as “a boy group from Berlin below the poverty line” whose sound is very much influenced by the Arabic styles of music in...



Tombed Visions Records

Tombed Visions Records

I haven’t wrote in awhile and there’s a reason for that. The countless stream of useless, non-personalised emails from PR agencies who should know better than to send me badly written presspacks about artists that are totally not relevant to this blog, had me so underwhelmed and uninspired that I have turned my attention to...



Vuvuvultures

Vuvuvultures

The nouveau goth movement was already in full swing before I’ve even realised the full extent of it. As I sit here going through Savages‘ facebook photo album, making plans for the show with O Children and The Voyeurist tomorrow and listening to Vuvuvultures, I cannot help but feel a sense of, relief. Relief in...



Savages – I Am Here Live EP

Savages – I Am Here Live EP

I took these pictures of Savages when I went to Shoreditch 1-2-3-4 Festival about a month or so ago. I never really had the heart to process them because I didn’t feel they were good enough and also my flash failed on me that day. There’s more but maybe I’ll look at them again and...



I SURVIVED BEACONS FESTIVAL 2012

I SURVIVED BEACONS FESTIVAL 2012

Fucking hell. Now THAT was an experience. By THAT, I mean, Beacons Festival 2012, which, as it turned out, was to be the first ever music festival I’ve ever been to, ever. So what was it like? I know the organizers prefer previews rather than reviews, nothing wrong with that, it helps to generate interest...



Com Truise

Com Truise

Whoa. When was the last time I posted about Com Truise? That was like, January last year. And now, he’s signed to the Ghostly label, which just happens to be one of my most respected labels when it comes to sounds from the future. So what’s new – Ghostly is releasing In Decay by Com...



Jamie Reid @ Fred 3 Temple Works Leeds

Jamie Reid @ Fred 3 Temple Works Leeds

When you think of the Sex Pistols and that era of punk and its can’t give a fuck about nothing attitude, it’s impossible not to identify it with the imagery that came with it: the safety pins, the ripped shirts, a shredded and pinned Union Jack, the Swastika eyes. Shock, hype and controversy formed the...



Savages + Pins @ Fuhrer Bunker, Manchester 1st May 2012

Savages + Pins @ Fuhrer Bunker, Manchester 1st May 2012

Had a shit day. Was saved by a mate who suggested we went to a gig in Manchester. At a place called Fuhrer Bunker. In a dead industrial estate with glass shattered and burnt out buildings in the middle of nowhere. Where two supposedly “amazeballs” bands were going to play. In a cage. When you...



Feorm

Feorm

This is why I like jamming. And improvising. Improv, improv and fucking improv until something adds up, experiment, refine and the result is always something cool. Feorm is an instrumental collective based in Norfolk and that is exactly what they do. Find an old barn, get some amps and instruments down and create, create, create!...



2:54

2:54

My new favorite obsession of the year. They’re 2:54 and I think I’m going to go and see them in Leeds tonight. What is it about them that enthralls me so? Check this beautiful video: [2:54 - You're Early VIDEO] [2:54 - You're Early] 2:54 are sisters Colette and Hannah Thurlow, joined by Alex and...
