Delta Maid – Broken Branches EP (Album Review)

Submitted by / 9 years ago / Album Reviews

I’m Emily, a new addition to the team, and I hope to keep you updated on all that’s going on alternatively! I don’t have much to do with popular culture, except keeping one eye on the charts, and instead find my kind of musical greatness in small pubs, bars and venues. It’s in these places…

Mark Ronson & The Business Intl. – Record Collection (Album Review)

Submitted by / 9 years ago / Album Reviews

Mark Ronson’s little black book has been of good use of late if the impressive line-up of lyrical and vocal collaborators on Record Collection is anything to go by. There are influences from the Kasier Chiefs to Ghostface Killah and plenty inbetween. With such a varied album, the inevitable, and perhaps valid, suggestions of disharmony…

Robyn – Body Talk Part II (Album Review)

Submitted by / 9 years ago / Album Reviews

Three albums in one year is pretty impressive but the confident Robyn sees it as common sense: “I got all these great songs so why not?” And why not indeed? Part II of the Body Talk trilogy demonstrates the Swede’s piercing vocals and their impressive combination with both dance tunes and more heart-felt instrumentals. With…

Klaxons – Surfing the Void (Album Review)

Submitted by / 9 years ago / Album Reviews

It’s been a while since I posted a review and for that I apologise. A lot of new music, both good (hello there M.I.A.) and bad (yes you, The Saturdays) has found its way to my ears but my thoughts have not found their way onto here. So in order to address this I’m going…
