[Track Of The Day: Wolf Tone “Returned”]

  Just a quickie today/tonight ladies and gentledudes. We’re a bit pressed for time you see. Got bare uploading of masters to do, a press release to get approved, some CDs to burn, some (more) favours to ask, and between all this we need to do something with the mince beef in the fridge as … Continue reading

[Introducing…Hey Sholay]

Sheffield’s cool. As firm Londonites (well, at least one of us) that supposedly personify all the regional-based snobbery that our nation’s capital has been famed for – we once toldĀ a few people that we consider anything outside the M25 to be “The North” (regardless of the geographical location of any particular habitable conurbation), which we … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Great White Shark “Fallen In With The Wrong Crowd”]

What a great day to discover new music. After a particularly over-exertive couple of days which heavily featured the Champions League final, a couple of friend’s birthdays, heading up to Nottingham for the day to catch Dot To Dot 2011 (more about that soon enough) and putting the very final touches to that something-special-that-we-can’t-announce-yet-but-we-will-in-the-next-couple-of-days-we-swear. The … Continue reading

[Interview: The Low Suns]

Last month we had the privilege of watching what will be, in our minds, one of the big success stories in pop music for the forseeable future, at an invite-only show located at The Terminal Studios in London Bridge. After playing a few out of town shows, a few big ups by XFM’s Eddy Temple-Morris, … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Mr Little Jeans “The Suburbs” (Arcade Fire Cover)]

We’ve been fans of Mr Little Jeans‘ artful-yet-actually-enjoyable take on pop music since way back in 2009 (and before you start going all “Yeah, right” on our asses, here’s the proof on ye olde Killing Moon Records blog. Yeah, take that, doubters. We win. WE WIN IN THE SMALLEST POSSIBLE WAY), and it brings a … Continue reading

[Festival: Ella The Singing Cow Gives Away Glastonbury Tickets]

You may well be thinking “WHAT IS THIS ABOMINATION?”. Well, let us explain a bit. In the last couple of weeks, a vast array of various people from different creeds and colours (but the name’s don’t matter) have been asking yours truly whether we know people who could “get them into” this year’s Glastonbury Festival, … Continue reading

[Interview: The Xcerts]

Over the course of the last 5 years, we’ve had the pleasure of meeting many different acts who have courted industry interest at one stage or another. A number of adjectives are thrown about when it comes to describing the manner of the band at those so-called embyonic stages – humble, cool, down-to-earth (actually, bands, … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Fractures “Alone”]

BINGBINGBINGBINGBINGBING! We have a winner from the “Demo Submission That Will Automatically Get Given The Track Of The Day Award” competition that we invented in our warped little minds just now, as a rudimentary means of kickstarting our latest feature. We’re good, right? Taking back what we said earlier about not receiving many email submissions … Continue reading

[Interview: Vela]

Pop is a funny old game. We recently discussed the meaning of the word in the context of describing what music is with a far-more-important journalist buddy of ours at a recent conference-turned-piss-up fest that shall remain nameless owing to the fact we seem to mention this on a daily basis, but you’ve probably guessed … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Us Baby Bear Bones “This Song’s Not About You Anymore”]

Shitting hell, we’re so tired. Tired, yet ridiculously motivated. Following a weekend of indulgence that included (but was not limited to) fist-pumpin’ and pop-punkin’ to a bit of The Xcerts (well done boys) and Taking Back Sunday (welcome back boys) at the Roundhouse on Friday; having a new age BBQ with a vintage/tesco feel in … Continue reading
