ALBUM REVIEW: Kid Kapichi – This Time Next Year

After building up a strong reputation for themselves on the UK live scene and being hyped up by the likes of Radio One, NME and MTV, Kid Kapichi are finally set to release their long-awaited debut. However, has it lived up to the excitement?

ALBUM REVIEW: Beezewax – Peace Jazz

Norwegian indie rock band Beezewax are back after five years with new album 'Peace Jazz', an exploration of their own live sound that takes a contemplative look on their past few years on the road.


B-Town threesome JAWS return with their third full length album 'The Ceiling'. The band explore a new twist on their original dream-pop sound as they explore the rush of growing up and the pressure and confusion that comes with it.

ALBUM REVIEW: Shadows Like Strangers – Cali

With airtime on BBC Nottingham, supporting the likes of Lacey and releasing a debut album, it’s safe to say that Shadows Like Strangers have had a cracking 2018/19. We’ve had a chance to take a listen to 'Cali' - does it have those feel good Californian vibes? We think it has that, and more!

ALBUM REVIEW: Fuzzystar – Telegraphing

Duality in music is something that's often difficult to pull off subtly; Fuzzystar, the Edinburgh-based alternative rock project of Andy Thomson manages this by not attempting any grand, genre-defining combination of styles on their debut album, Telegraphing, but by simply infecting the project's sound with various influences and conveying differing emotional states.

ALBUM REVIEW: The Dillinger Escape Plan – Dissociation

It is of no surprise that music fans across the globe were shocked at the announcement that The Dillinger Escape Plan's new record Dissociation would be the final resting point for the band, though ultimately for the highly respectable preservation of the band's own career. That, of course, brings us to the finale of one of the most explosive and enthralling bands to have torn apart stages worldwide.

EP REVIEW: Fangclub – Coma Happy

Dublin's Fangclub have been making a name for themselves recently, being covered by the mainstream rock press, played on Radio 1, and soon, supporting chart-botherers Twin Atlantic for the Ireland/UK leg of their European tour, which includes three nights in Glasgow's Barrowlands. This tour leg commences just under a month after the release of their sophomore EP, Coma Happy.

ALBUM REVIEW: RavenEye – Nova

Blues rock babies RavenEye got 'Out Of The Rain' at Drownload and straight into the studio to create new super album, 'Nova'. If you're a fan of last EP Breakout, you may find this one a little different. It's as if they've disected their previous sound with a rusty razor and tied up all the loose ends; and the result is infectious. Disclaimer: the songs are so catchy they will take over your brain.
