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 […]

Yellowcard – ‘Lift A Sail’

‘Lift A Sail’ is Yellowcard’s first album for new label Razor & Tie and their first without long time drummer Longineu Parsons. However the biggest change they’ve made is a musical one, frontman Ryan Key proudly stating that “We really feel like we got where we wanted to be, and made a proper rock ‘n’ […]

Lower Than Atlantis – ‘Lower Than Atlantis’

Lower Than Atlantis live under a microscope. Perhaps more than any other band in an increasingly fit-to-burst UK scene, their every action has been pored over and scrutinised to the point where you’d excuse the Hertfordshire lot if they drowned in their own paranoia – for every critic claiming their signing to Island Records or […]

Whirr – ‘Sway’

Back in the early 90’s, a little band from Dublin called My Bloody Valentine shattered the mould of alternative rock and unintentionally created a genre that would be known as “shoegaze”. The term was coined largely because of the sheer amount of effects pedals used by guitarists that had them constantly staring at their feet […]
