Album review 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 … >>
Album review Cheatahs - Mythologies In its first incarnation, shoegazing scarcely existed as a scene outside its own bubble. Now it's undergoing a great renaissance, and Cheatahs are one of a clutch of new bands taking it, and you, to remarkable new heights. >>
Album review Ryan Adams - 1989 I wasn't even sure I was going to review 1989. Having originally written my copy in the style of Paul Morley channeling Lester Bangs, I was on the verge of hitting the big red 'Publish' button when Father John Misty appeared in a vision before me... >>
Album review Various Artists - This is England ’90 – Original Soundtrack Snatches of dialogue from the series, along with variety, new tracks and thoughtful curation raise this above your average old skool compilation. >>
Album review Static in Verona - Odd Anthem Odd Anthem is, if you'll excuse the obvious album title callback, the sound of one man trying to out-anthem himself. And winning at it. >>
Album review Arctic Monkeys - AM Five albums in, and The Arctic Monkeys are no longer the cheeky new scamps from their fastest ever selling debut British album. Clearly, many believed the hype: should that belief hold firm this far down the line? >>
Album review Leon Bridges - Coming Home A retro throwback to the 1960s with a Sam Cooke voice, the 25-year-old Bridges brings old-style soul to the modern world on his debut album Coming Home. >>

Rediscover Fleetwood Mac - Rumours There are certain albums that cannot be revisited or reviewed due to their status in the music world. Certain albums which have been defined as a classic and will be forever noted in history as such. >>
Rediscover Feeder - Comfort in Sound Share I was quite surprised when a friend of mine asked me to write a piece on a band that he likes. Actually, I was a bit chuffed to be … >>
Rediscover Del Amitri - Twisted 1995 saw the release of Twisted, the fourth studio album by Scottish rockers Del Amitri. Prior to this album the band had enjoyed some success with singles such as Kiss This Thing Goodbye and Always The Last To Know. Known for their melodic folk sound with lyrics which focused on mainly love and loss, Twisted brought a change in both sound and line-up and Del Amitri's biggest success in the US singles chart. >>
Rediscover Radiohead - The Bends I've read quite a lot of articles recently as The Bends by Radiohead is 20 years old this year.  It has always been an album that I've loved and it was the one that got me into listening to them as a band in the first place.  I didn't think too much about it (apart from how old it made me feel) until a friend of mine sent me a lovely message this week... >>
