Stormzy, just like Kano, has fooled most if not all of us. The latter, prior to the release of last year's Made in the Manor, released a succession of tracks – ‘Three Wheel-Ups...

Under The Radar review
10.11.16

These shreddin' Scots have cashed out the dreamier guise of their self-titled debut for more jagged edges on this boldly-titled follow-up.  More

The Quietus review

For listeners of a certain age, myself for example, who feel all of their forty-one years without yet regarding that as old, there exists an uncontrollable reflex when listening...

A thrilling, raw, triumphant debut album...

The Quietus review
09.11.16

In our maximalist, sensory overloading times it's bewildering to find something as sonically spacious, sparse and economic as a dialog of two drum sets. Being bombarded with...

Exploded View have a particularly well-chosen name: according to Wikipedia, an ‘exploded view’ shows an object “as if there had been a small controlled explosion emanating from...

If you're coming to London-based post-punk four-piece Sauna Youth as a new listener, then the first thing to point out is that their name is something of a misnomer. Although...

Punk News review

Sauna Youth are the type of band with youthful exuberance to spare. On their latest full length, they manage to cram it into every corner and maintain a cohesive 30 minutes of...

An enthralling and enormously creative second album...

The Quietus review
21.05.15

If the release of their second album was not deliberately scheduled for the week after the general election, then the Pre New must at least have relished its timing. Not because...

The Quietus review
16.04.15

The difficult second album acts as a quality measure in music. It sorts the wheat from the second-rate indie chaff: the men from the boys, and the women from the girls. It's...

It's an odd decision for Carl Barât to be releasing what is essentially his second solo album not long before the release of the eagerly anticipated album from his perennially...

The Quietus review

The Heads have just reissued their second album, the ferocious frazzle of Everyone Knows We Got Nowhere. Paul Allen left the band a while ago, and at first he spent time building...

Under The Radar review

Describing Kindness's debut album was no easy task. Was it hip-hop? Was it R&B? Was it dance? Nobody really quite knew. But World, You Need a Change of Mind was such an intriguing...

On first listen to Honeyblood's infectious self-titled debut, you'd never guess this Glasgow-based group was only a two-piece. More

Honeyblood's self-titled debut was something I thought would remind me about things I tried to forget. Namely, listening to Best Coast for hours on end with an ex that drove me...
