Laura Mardon – One Week Record

I first met Laura when we played a show together. She was still calling herself Transfere Project and I was still calling myself MC iPod. Actually, I’m still calling myself MC iPod but that’s another story for another day. I … Continue reading

Great Cynics – I Feel Weird

Fuck me this is a bit good, isn’t it. I figured I’d start bluntly so you could – hopefully – feel the same way I felt when I heard this album. Having been there when Cynics, as they were called … Continue reading

Brawlers – Romantic Errors of Our Youth

When I was sent Brawlers’ debut album to review, I didn’t think I’d ever listened to their music. That’s until I heard ‘Windowmisser’, and I realised I’ve heard them played on BBC Radio 1 multiple times. They made a good … Continue reading
