[Track Of The Day: Lorena B “Waste”]

  Why, HEYLO boys and girls. What’s the happy-haps? You’re looking great today. Did you change your hair? Nice, nice. We’re in a good mood today. Yeah, y’all read that right – we’re not moaning about anything today. Nada. Zip. We’re not even going to moan about how much we moan. “It’s the codeine”, you … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Wise Children “Winter’s Wall”]

Good news kids – the codeine has well and truly kicked in (we’ve had a right pain in the backside for the last couple of days). Strangely enough, the effect of this particular painkiller (which we have since been warned that it is highly addictive; hilariously, the GP in question decided to overlook the fact … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Embers “Tunnel Vision”]

  A pretty fly-by style Track Of The Day for youse guys this shiddy February afternoon. By way of news, we’ve announced that we will be joining forces with Manchester’s Beatwolf Records on the upcoming Strangers release; we’ve got a new dude on board the good ship Killing Moon (everyone say hey to Adam); we’ve … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Montage Populaire “Reject Reinstall”]

  There’s an Alkaline Trio song (from the seminal album From Here To Infirmary) by the name of Standard Break From Life with a poignant lyric that goes “when you’re only 23 it’s not attractive to complain about your sore back”. Well, we don’t mind telling people we’re a slight older than 23, and we’re … Continue reading

[Live: The Jezabels, Dry The River, Kai Fish, Hey Sholay (NME Awards Show), Koko, 22/2/12]

There was much, much hype for The Jezabels at Koko for their NME Awards Show – it seemed as if half the Australian ex-pat population of London had turned out for the gig. Before the main event, we were entertained by Hey Sholay, who surprised the crowd by taking standard indie to soaring levels of … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Zebra and Snake “Sweetest Treasure”]

  Fucking hell. Friday could not have come sooner dudes. This week has been laden with all manners of cock-ups for us. Yes, after running on full steam and firing on all cylinders for longer than we’re able to remember (so more than a month then), our little world went up in proverbial flames when … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Spring Offensive “Carrier”]

Mid-week-gotta-bust-a-move real quick cha-cha-real-smooth style kids. Translation: we’ve got to be in Brixton in about an hour (from Ealing – we like those odds), as our mates over at Laissez Faire Club and/or 9PR have been bugging asking us very nicely for quite some time if we’d like to go and see their US indie … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Elliphant “In The Jungle”]

  So, what SHALL we belly-ache about today? The fact our emails are still giving us the run-around? That we practically cried down the phone to a music lawyer today? Or the 3-month post-haircut Darth Vader style mullet has pretty much set in? Or that our invite to The Brit Awards seems to have gotten … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: YAWN “YumYum”]

  It’s Monday. It’s a new week. And we’re stressed again! YAY! BOO! WAA! If you’re sick of hearing this shit over and over, we should, um, stress to you that our weekly condundrums that make us feel out of sorts on a now-regular basis do vary in many ways, but usually revolve around the … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Ajimal “Footnote To Love (Part One)”]

  We must have slept for a straight 12 hours. Not even the buzzing and the ringing of an iRate iPhone (geddit?) could interrupt our slumber – aided in part by the fact that we are indeed ill. Not the cool kinda ill, like Ill Fits ill, but the chest-infection type of ill that means … Continue reading
