Interview with Erin K’s New Album ‘Little Torch’ | @ErinKMusic

Erin K, the singer-songwriter, has a new album, Little Torch, that is a burning, alternative album which can only be described as a unique and individual set of songs that should not be missed.  I chatted with Erin to discuss the making of the album and upcoming plans to tour. How did you come to composing and performing? I stumbled upon music by chance. I had recently graduated from art school in London and had been struggling to find a cathartic form of expression. In a strange way, I felt a sense of pure freedom with my approach to making...

Review of Amplifier’s ‘Trippin’ With Dr Faustus | @amplifierband

Amplifier’s new album,’Trippin’ With Dr Faustus’ out for release on the 30th June via Rockosmos, is their sixth album consisting of 10 tracks and the follow up to Mystoria from 2014. After their break with their previous label, frontman Sel Balamir created his own label, Rockosmos, out of a necessity, thereby allowing the band to create and produce this new album ‘in-house’ as it were.  And, it can’t be more different to the previous album. This album basks in its philosophical feel and lingers to take you through the heavy themes carried within.  The track ‘Silvio’ became the basis...

Interview with Chris Ingham

Ahead of his show in London on the 28th June, we had the opportunity to talk with Chris Ingham regarding his sextet REBOP and all things jazz. How did you gravitate to jazz music and how did you come to form REBOP? My attraction to jazz was always the idea that you never had to repeat yourself as a musician. Every gig, every tune, every solo is an opportunity for fresh, spontaneous musical expression. REBOP was formed in 2012, initially as a quintet to play bebop of the mid 1940s by the likes of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie,...

Interview with American Young To Discuss New Album, ‘AY’ | @AmericanYoung

In advance of their tour starting on the 24th June, I had the great pleasure of chatting to the duo, American Young, about the process of creating their melodic and rhythmic new album,  AY. Now that you have released AY, how are you feeling about the process? Kristy:  It was a labour of love conversation.  It was a collaboration between Jon, myself and Lee (Brice).  It was unique, we were trying to incorporate the male/female points of view and how that conversing leads to deeper, more meaningful relationships. I really believe we were effective with that.  We consciously got...

Rancid Release Their New Album, ‘Trouble Maker’ | @rancid

The band Rancid are nothing if not true to their punk roots and form.  And why the hell not?  Punk is by definition a genre of music that openly rejects political idealism and creates its own rules outside the mainstream that taps into a very guttural version of rock n’ roll.  And, Rancid owns that unapologetically. Their music speaks truth about the stripped back and raw version of a story.  All the while giving the listener a sound that revels in the glory of all that is punk. Rancid formed in 1991 in the Bay Area of California, founded...
