Live Review: Vans Warped Tour, Alexandra Palace, London

My university days and beyond have mostly been filled with pop-punk and ska music. Proper feel good, summery tunes. So when I heard that the Vans Warped Tour was heading to London with a handful of my favourite bands on board I started counting down the days! The Warped Tour triumphantly trundled into London’s Alexandra […]

Live Review: Maximo Park, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London

Once upon a time I used to a bit of street teaming and merch selling for bands. It started with little known indie touring bands that would pass through Liverpool. All I had to do was hand out some badges or stickers or, occasionally something a bit more interesting like branded chocolates or frisbees in […]

Live Review: Billy Talent, The Roundhouse

When the Rock Sound Riot Tour was announced I got pretty excited. I love Billy Talent. Then, when Don Broco were added to the line up I was over the moon.

Live Review: Nicki Minaj, O2 Arena

New Video: This Many Boyfriends – Number One

I’ve already shared my love for This Many Boyfriendswith you, when I gushed about their new single, Number One, a little while ago.

New Video: Marika Hackman – You Come Down

I’m pretty sure this song floated into my world as a present from above. It is so ethereal and haunting it feels like it’s come from another time. It’s beautiful and the video is really sort of eerie don’t you think? This song is one of the two on her début double-a side single, You Come Down/Mountain Spines, […]

New Video: Tall Ships – Gallop

I don’t know what to tell you about Tall Ships apart from that I really love them, they’re super ace and you really should pre-order their album, Everything Touching. As if to prove just how wonderful they are they have released a excellent new video for their marvellous new song, Gallop. If you like this, […]
