Hang The Bastard – Sex In The Seventh Circle

West London’s Hang The Bastard have been a band since 2007, though they’ve not been the most prolific songwriters, having only released one full length album so far in their career, they’re back with their long-awaited followup, ‘Sex In The Seventh Circle’. Having had two previous vocalists, HTB have finally settled on one, and he […]

Pianos Become The Teeth – ‘Keep You’

The Pianos Become The Teeth that brought us 2010’s ‘Old Pride’, or the following year’s ‘The Lack Long After’ is all but dead. ‘Keep You’ never sees Kyle Durfey’s vocal ferocity move above a cracked and shattered croon – far removed from the visceral screams that led the atmosphere on their earlier material. The ten […]

No Bragging Rights – The Concrete Flower

Californian melodic hardcore outfit, No Bragging Rights have released their 5th album, ‘Concrete Flower’. It makes for a record filled to the brim with energy and excellently tactile musicianship. The album goes beyond just being one endless barrage of heaviness, but captures other qualities that make it so appealing One of the most immediately recognisable […]

Climates – Body Clocks

Lincoln five-piece Climates have well and truly been making their mark on the UK rock scene of late. Last month’s support slot with Beartooth got them some deserved recognition, and this month they’re doing their own headline tour. But aside from making their mark on the live circuit, they also released their debut album ‘Body Clocks’ earlier […]

The Public – Shibuya Crossing

People listen to music for a variety of reasons: maybe your older sister was jamming out to it, maybe your friends are in the band, maybe you thought that Garden State was a good film and you listened to some stranger’s headphones in a waiting room. By and large, though, I think the music we […]

From Indian Lakes – ‘Absent Sounds’

Those seeking music to lose themselves into won’t have to look much further than the third full-length by Californian atmospheric indie-rockers From Indian Lakes. With Joey Vannucchi – an intriguing individual born and raised in the Yosemite National Park Area – clearly at the creative helm, the expansive soundscapes act as a soundtrack to a […]

Lagwagon – ‘Hang’

Throughout the late 90’s and early 00’s there was a punk rock scene that didn’t need to rely on any kind of commercial appeal to gain a solid fan base, and had enough depth to their music without needing to ever ‘sell out’. Bands like Pennywise, No Use For A Name, Good Riddance and many […]

Guerrilla Monsoon – Big City Plans

‘Big City Plans’ is the debut mini album from Birmingham’s Guerrilla Monsoon and on the whole it’s bloody brilliant. The relatively new four piece are quick out of the traps with opening track ‘Flock’. The two-minute jam is fast, fun, and gritty melodic punk-rock that stands up to anything we’ve heard from a UK band […]

New Found Glory – Resurrection

New Found Glory return with their eighth studio album, ‘Resurrection’, and it’s an absolute belter. The newly focused four piece get right to the point with their opening track too, the previously premiered ‘Selfless’. It’s an anthemic pop-punk jam with a ridiculously catchy chorus and a really beefy guitar riff. Within three minutes they’ve quickly […]

Finch – ‘Back To Oblivion’

How do you classify a comeback? In regards to Finch it’s hard to say. Since their last break up in 2010, the band looked like they had finally succumbed to post-second album “musical differences” syndrome. Their last release, ‘Epilogue’ a collection of left over tracks from their attempted third album seemed to all but say […]
