IN FOR QUESTIONING: Beans On Toast is back and this time he’s brought with him a whole album of dystopian rock ‘n’ roll

Beans On Toast is not the most talked about artist on the indie scene, but quite frankly he should be, his lyrics are honest, relatable and if you’re a festival goer who hasn’t stumbled across playing in a field, you haven’t spent enough time in our muddy British quagmires. For Beans latest album he took Continue Reading

GIG REVIEW: Wave Chase, the unlikely kings of the indie-punk rock party! With Support from Juno and Annik

With the Wave Chase’s release Continue Reading

IN FOR QUESTIONING: Panic Shack seem to be alarmed at ‘Who’s Got My Lighter’ whereas we’re desperate for a stream of the single!

Just because you’re a major league radio DJ doesn’t mean you’re a legend, but in Huw Stephens case he is the second- we love him! Huw is known for promoting the work of Welsh musicians, his work with championing new acts from all over and lastly his more primetime work. And this brings us to Continue Reading

SINGLE REVIEW: Somebody’s Child is back with his fifth single, ‘Love That Sound’, and quite frankly, we do too!

‘a buoyantly bright banger that simply demands a smile.’ Some of you may remember Somebody’s Child from our 10/10 review of his last single, Jungle. Or, hopefully, you’ve taken our words to heart and fallen in love with his music yourself. Either way, his new offering is superb. Love That Sound is, in essence, incredibly Continue Reading

EP REVIEW: Wave Chase depict the innocent fun of youth on indie banger fuelled EP Tell Me What To Know

“Wave Chase’s Tell Me What To Know is quite literally ‘all killer, no filler’.” Back in 2004 we were blessed with one of the most important indie pop albums in past few decades, that band was The Killers and the album was Hot Fuss. Hot Fuss transcended society, it didn’t matter who you were the Continue Reading

THE UNSUNG HEROS: Underscore Part 3’s top 5 EP’s of the year.

The EP is often the starting place, the first place you hear more than a single from a new band and it’s the time you start to think “damn, I might have actually found my new favourite band”.

FINAL SCORE: Best Albums of the Year 2019. Countdown: 10 to 1.

10.  Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes – End of Suffering Frank Carter’s punk-rock-renegade outfit hopefully isn’t new to any readers. The ex-Gallows front-man has been producing phenomenally well-crafted music for years, and the Rattlesnakes’ third studio album is no different. Full of punk-rock aggression, though tamed slightly, mellowed out by success and the birth of Continue Reading

FINAL SCORE: Best Albums of the Year 2019. Countdown: 20 to 11.

20.  Bellevue Days – It Can’t Possibly Go Wrong Ever What is there to be said about Bellevue Days’ debut album other than ‘woah’.
