[Track Of The Day: Hollow Giants “Dreams/Fears”]

  “Have you got a headache?” is the poignant question our fave-ever talk music duo Listener put to their, well, listeners in the even-more-poignant track Ozark Empire. Well, the short answer to that two years after the fact is – yes. Yes, right now we have a big fucking headache. Set aside the increasing relevance of … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Baby Strange “Get By Me”]

  Good lord. We are staying in tonight, we tell thee. Sure, we may well have promised all and/or sundry that we’d finally have that planning meeting; we’d see that show; or sort out that catch up that we’ve been talking about for, oh, all that time. Well, to those things, to fuck they can … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Cayucas “Cayucos”]

  Our mumma has recently told us once that we need to periodically, between rounds at our seemingly-endless onslaught of festive or otherwise-celebratory merriments this month, drink water. She will probably tell us twice. However our mumma would be proud of us today as we actually took heed of this sage advice, and this is … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Paper Boats “Summer High”]

  Ugh. How you doing? Us? We’re doing okay. Hanging in there. The operable word being hanging. Two-thirds of Christmas party carnage is done. Our folky-songwritery chums over in Highbury sure know how to rock; with the walls draped in (not real) gold, all the cheese’n’fruit’n’crackers you could possibly want up for grabs, combined with … Continue reading

[Release: Malpas Announce Free EP Via Killing Moon]

Of late, we often find ourselves bemused at how hilarious life can be. In particular, it is very fucking funny how some things just work themselves out; like, you can spend a good chunk of time trying to ram down a concrete wall just by running at it for the duration, only to come back … Continue reading

[Good Shit: Killing Moon At The Independent Label Market]

We’re more happy than Dappy in a nappy (jeah) to announce that we’ll be repping our good selves and pimping our more-than-good wares at the Independent Label Market, which is sponsored by those purveyors all of thingies independenty and cool, AIM. Taking place in Spitalfields Market in London on Saturday 1st December (i.e. tomorrow), we’ll … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Woahnows “Go”]

  We have 20 minutes to write this blog post. Got a train to catch. Got a guy coming in to talk about bands and stuff. All that jazz. There are also no less than 30 emails that need an urgent reply. Gogogogogogogo. We won’t really have time to get into how incredibly pear-shaped last … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: The Wytches “Digsaw”]

    We are typing this up with varying degrees of speed. There are two reasons for this. One is that we’re about to embark on an evening which will quite possibly see shit getting so very real, in that we have to calculate whether it is indeed possible to be omnipresent – well, maybe … Continue reading

[Interview: The Divers]

    Things seem to have skyrocketed for our favourite indie rock lads The Divers since we last plonked them up on this-here bloggington . Back then, they were Pete Hickman and The Divers. Presumably our guy Pete has decided that diving was very much his thing and instead of standing on the forefront and/or sidelines … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Black Manila “June ’95”]

  Fuckin’ stress central here dudes. All kinds of shit is kicking off. People want this, that, the other – usually money, “advice” (alluding to a big ol’ YES about, well, money usually), hints, tips, candle sticks – you name it, we have probably dispensed it in the last 100 hours. Aren’t we just the … Continue reading
