“THE FLOWER THAT NEVER BLOSSOMS IS QUICKLY FORGOTTEN…”

On their emotionally potent, masterfully crafted and earnestly written 9th studio album, Architects prove yet again that heavy music has both the capacity to make you cry and gain permission to melt your face!

It’s no secret that Architects are one the most prolific and well-loved contemporary metal bands out there. They still manage to reach impressive streaming figures despite the grit of their output, and they ... read more

CATCH-UP WEEK Jan 2021 -----> (ep02): shame – Drunk Tank Pink [released Jan 15]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

‘Drunk Tank Pink’ is an exceptional, on-the-nose set of post-punk daggers that cut through the unrelenting anxieties of life to create an experience that is bound to ignite the flame that was so bitterly smothered inside you by 2020. ... read more

CATCH-UP WEEK Jan 2021 -----> (ep01): Nobody Is Listening – Zayn [released Jan 15]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On his puzzlingly titled 3rd solo-album, ‘Nobody Is Listening’, Zayn continues on his descent from stardom into No Man’s Land: the desolate plains of rnb/millennial pop mediocrity. Don’t get me wrong, Zayn is still my second ... read more

“Hand-built the pyramid one by one, while you flew first class into the sun” (Me: “You know what else is first-class? This lyric, yooo!”)

On their sophomore effort, Australian multi-instrumentalist and virtuosic live-performer Tash Sultana moulds their sound into a more band-friendly territory as opposed to their famed solo aesthetic. The result? Well, if anything, it shows an enormous amount of potential…

Tash burst onto the scene in 2016 with their ... read more

“Try peelin' back layers to find meaning,
revealing what you're given is all you're needing.” – (‘nhs’, TYRON himself)

On the follow-up to his critically acclaimed, unhinged, masterpiece of a debut “Nothing Great About Britain”, Slowthai returns with his messy, but deeply relatable sophomore effort, ‘TYRON’.

Slowthai is an important figure in modern music. In 2019 he rose as a hero for the rebels, millennials, and dreamers alike, one who ... read more

Hey I’m sorry if this is annoying but me and my friends attempted to make a few ambient songs and we just uploaded our first song to Soundcloud! We would really appreciate it if you could give it a listen! Sorry for self promotion but we’re really looking for feedback - it’s only 90 seconds long :)
