Whether these are ‘building blocks’ or not, the music here fully stands on its own merits.
Corryvreckan is tremendous, it is folk without being twee, metal without being generic and has an appeal even beyond those genres.
The songs here are so well constructed, played, and sung that you certainly long for more. Well, maybe we can all search out the previous Butler/Oldham project.
With Drained, Timelost have delivered the goods again with an album that fizzes with an infectiously positive energy and feel good vibes.
Like a stick of dynamite, ready to explode at any second.
The songs picked give a glimpse into their musical upbringing – or at least a flavour of the country they grew up in. And it is also a very good Beastwars album.
Essentially, Scott Yoder shows with this album that quality glam rock is still alive and well.
It may only be February, but you’ll struggle to find an album as heavy, as intense, as harrowing, as beautiful, as cathartic and as utterly sublime as this one.
All in all, it’s great to see this album getting some attention thanks to Wilson’s sublime remix. It’s very much a rebirth by giving The Missing Piece acknowledgment that it properly deserves for 2024.
Shooting Daggers have made staggering strides at a rapid rate to deliver a hugely ear-catching debut.
I cannot speak highly enough of this album. It is definitely up there as one of the best instrumental rock albums that I’ve heard in ages. Truly first class.
Something that could have been overcomplicated and overbearing turns out to be quite an enjoyable art rock experience after all.
Close To Home is bursting with vibrant energy and was clearly created with passion and heart.
While many might proclaim that post-rock has reached its limits, Dead Bandit and their latest album prove that it just might still have some musical fuel there.
The record’s prevailing mood is of being blanketed and half awake.
Bold and inventive, or messy and incoherent? All of the above.
An off-the-wall chaotic sound with a large, massive full-scale assault.
It turns out that ‘Escape Scenes’ is one of those melody-driven albums that simply stick to your ears.
Adding the fact that this is True Green’s debut album the results are even more impressive than the sum of its (nine) parts.
Very much a band of brothers creating some of the most intense, weird, and balls to the wall releases MoonJune has given its listeners in 2024.
With all the variation in sound, there is a definite sense of consistency in the sound here as the listener is all the time aware it is one and the same artist/band that knows exactly what is supposed to go on here.
