Album Review: Holy Wave – Freaks of Nurture

March 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

Holy Wave might just be the coolest thing to come out of Texas this year. Replete with glittering guitars and decadent reverb, the five-piece favour a hazy, lazy sound which has been alternately described as “psychedelic” and “trippy” (tellingly, their first LP, 2011’s Knife Hits, was named after their favourite method of smoking hashish). Latest...

March 5, 2016 | 0 Comments

If Edith Piaf had been born in 1980s Brooklyn, she would probably sound something like Eddi Front. Formerly known as Ivana XL, Front’s debut LP Marina is a complex, whimsical album recalling songstresses like Cat Power or Tanya Donnelly: ultra-feminine yet also incredibly powerful. Front’s voice drifts over twinkling piano and delicate acoustic guitars to...
