Exclusive Track Stream: Wild Cat Strike – Graves

Exclusive Track Premiere: Scraps of Tape – Experiments in Shame

Firesuite – Outlive Your Body

They say “always leave them wanting more” and Firesuite have certainly done that with Outlive Your Body.

Under The Influence with FORT

FORT are an achingly new post rock band from South Wales who recently sent us their debut EP. As it turns out, it’s great. Coming in at the chunkier, mathier end of the post rock spectrum it lays down a marker announcing that they are a band to keep an eye on. Given this impressive introduction, we wanted to know what made them tick so got the band to pick the three records that have most influenced them.

With CSMA having just released a new album, possibly their most accessible (although I use that word advisedly!) yet we thought it would be a great time to get Chrissie to talk about some of the albums that have influenced her.

In the wake of the release of Peter Broderick’s new album, looking back at 10 years of work, we thought it would be a good time to probe his influences.

This Patch Of Sky

This Patch of Sky don’t require introductions. They’ve been around for a while and are one of the most respected bands in the Post Rock spectrum. They don’t like to play it by the book and this time around they pushed their boundaries and released one of the best instrumental albums of 2017. We had a chance to ask Kit Day, guitarist of the band, about the new album, the past, the present and the future.
