Reviews Hurricane #1 – Find What You Love and Let It Kill You Share Sixteen years after Hurricane #1 called it a day, Alex Lowe is back with a brand new album and a brand new line up. Signed to Alan McGee's Creation … >>
The Indie Vigil This Is How It Feels To Be Indie – The Indie Vigil #14 Your 14th edition of The Indie Vigil features tracks from The Men They Couldn't Hang, Cinerama, and Seedhead. >>
RRP Recommends Wry – Waves Fighting back waves (uh-huh) of nostalgia, I'm nonetheless bound to admit that Waves delivers an ocean (uh-huh x2) of memories of the first time I heard music like this and knew I needed it in my life. >>
RRP Recommends Butterfly Child – Holding On With a first album in nearly eighteen years on the way, Joe Cassidy, aka Butterfly Child, has announced a second track from the album. Holding On is dream pop with a classic twist: something a reflective Richard Hawley and Jason Pierce might come up with, it contains harmonies, heavenly gliding strings, and a hint of old-time twang. >>
RRP Recommends Public Service Broadcasting – Sputnik Sputnik is the literally pulsing first half of a double a-side, the fourth release from Public Service Broadcasting's 2015 album The Race For Space. It's a mesmeric, metronomic track that brings to life the awe and wonder that must have been felt around the world after the launch of this strange, beeping creation. >>
RRP Recommends Otherkin – Feel It if Radio X are giving air time to Otherkin and their rapscallion ilk (assumptions: they have ilk, they are rapscallions. Probably true) they can't be all bad. >>
RRP Recommends Saltwater Sun – Wild First there was the blistering Habit on My Mind, then came the Foals-meets-The-Cardigans of Making Eyes. Now Saltwater Sun have completed the release cycle for their debut release Wild with the EP's title track. Happily and predictably, it's another corker, all textures, depth and harmony, and some sort of guitar/vocal alchemy. >>
RRP Recommends Fieu – Running Running may call itself synthpop, but don't let that lull you into looking forward to a quiet evening in - it's fizzing with effervescent electropop sparkle. >>
The Indie Vigil This Is How It Feels To Be Indie – The Indie Vigil #13 Week 13 of The Indie Vigil is lucky for everyone who catches it. This week's decade-spanning threesome is: dEUS, The Lilac Time and The Mountain Goats. >>
RRP Recommends Meilyr Jones – How To Recognise A Work Of Art How To Recognise A Work Of Art, the new single from the former Race Horses frontman Meilyr Jones, is no less of a thrill than his stellar recent live performances supporting Richard Hawley. >>
RRP Recommends The Lonely Wild – Snow When I started watching the new video for Snow, the opening track to The Lonely Wild's 2015 album Chasing White Light, I knew that I had to add one more to my fuzzy list of albums I've missed out on in 2015. >>
