Album Review: Luke Bryan – Crash My Party

August 28, 2013 | 0 Comments

Country music, you know it’s the real stuff if it’s from America – even more so if it’s from somewhere like Georgia or Nashville. Luke Bryan definitely has the first two features on his side, and is signed up to the label Capitol Nashville – so as far as I’m concerned that’s all three ticked...

When it comes to her music career, Dannii Minogue has been undeniably overshadowed by her much more mainstream and chart successful sister, Kylie, however that doesn’t mean that Dannii’s work in music is any less relevant as she makes known on a brand new singles collection that is released this month titled – This Is...

It’s difficult to know what to expect when pressing play on a Babyshambles album. Whether gold will be struck or it will just be another chaotic mess seems up for debate upon every release given the manic state of lead singer Pete Doherty. With Sequel to the Prequel though, it’s as if a new band...

It’s an unwritten rule in music that the longer you take to put out a new record, the better it has to be. Franz Ferdinand haven’t released an album since early 2009, meaning the new one had to be good enough to compensate for four silent years. Lucky for them, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right...

Few artists can match the tenacity of Ty Segall. Of course, Segall is known for his electric live performances, his intimacy with his faithful fans, and his generally sunny demeanor. But, when it comes to the tedious process of writing and recording new material, Ty is surprisingly just as vehement. In 2012 alone, although working...

Album Review: SOiL – Whole

August 20, 2013 | 0 Comments

Ah, heavy metal. The popular stereotypes of this beloved “parent” genre include, but are not limited to: male lead vocalists with long, straight hair, jackets festooned with metal spikes, and aggressively angular electric guitars. But as with anything, stereotypes can be misleading. Metal can encompass a wide variety of musical movements, from innovative 80’s pioneers...

Album Review: Travis – Where You Stand

August 18, 2013 | 0 Comments

The 1980’s remain a seminal period in the development of music. Sonic styles and trends came, and, much like the barbarian tribes that ran amok in the Dark Ages, abruptly ended, or were supplanted by something else entirely. The rise of the synth as the instrument of choice, and the cultural resonance and obsession with...
