This is a mature and confident sounding EP with well-crafted songs and that keep you hoping for more. It’s short and sharp, heavy while still remaining melodic. – By Jody Dunstan

Live Review: Chris & Cosey and Nisennenmondai at Heaven, London. 15th February, 2015

Live Review: Chris & Cosey and Nisennenmondai at Heaven, London. 15th February, 2015

The pair end their set and this chapter of their illustrious career with Coolicon, a Carter Tutti track. Although nearly two years old now, this sounds more dangerous and immediate than anything in the preceding hour. It’s a thrilling end to a somewhat workman-like show from the legends and bodes well for their forthcoming album – the future is bright for Carter Tutti. By Gaz Cloud

A Forest Of Stars – Beware The Sword You Cannot See

Ibeyi – Ibeyi

Ibeyi – Ibeyi

While this album is not without its flaws, for a debut it certainly catches the ear. For Ibeyi to have produced such a unique fusion of styles at little more than twenty years of age is impressive. I can’t wait to see where their music grows from here. – By Lachlan R. Dale

Interview: Bear vs Manero

Interview: Bear vs Manero

Bear vs Manero are one of the many unheralded gems in contemporary British music. Combining lyrical finesse and thunderous riffs, they are an intoxicating blast of raw power. I interviewed the band following the recording of their first full-length album; if there’s any justice it will propel them into fame-and-excess-induced-rehab upon its release in May. By Aidan Hehir

Vyrju – Black

Vyrju – Black

Despite the lack of polish that ‘Black’ has, it offers a positive glimpse of things yet to come from Vyrju. – By David Struyf

An Autumn For Crippled Children – The Long Goodbye

An Autumn For Crippled Children – The Long Goodbye

Despite influences from opposing musical spectrums the sound hits a nice middle ground and feels completely comfortable in itself. By Andrew Rawlinson

Live Review: Enter Shikari at Pyramids Centre, Portsmouth. 16th February, 2015

Guess what kids, my generation invented this kind of music, I was there first time around, I might not have the energy to mosh to the same extent you do and I am certainly past crowd surfing but I still love good music. by Alan Ewart

Moon Duo – Shadow of the Sun

Moon Duo – Shadow of the Sun

Moon Duo have set the bar that little higher and with the slight change in sound ensured that their future is wide open. An absolute triumph and one that is going to feature on many end of year lists when the time comes. By Martyn Coppack

Monolord – Vænir

Monolord – Vænir

Rest assured, the guitar is still tuned low, the drums are still like collapsing mountains and the voice is still just as ethereal; this album is brilliant. – By Matt Butler
