Beak> @SWX

Another 3hr commute left me marvelling at the wonders of the West Country, debating whether it was worth a £50 train ticket to see Beak> in the flesh. After wandering around dense-headed for an hour or so I fell inside Bristol’s seemingly inherent calmness; no sense of urgency in this city, even at rush hour. First […]

Merival – No Breaks

You are sitting in a café reading a novel and sipping on a cup of coffee. The sounds of other patrons can be heard gossiping around you, then you hear a very soothing voice come on the radio. This image was the first thing that came to my mind upon hearing “No Breaks”, the new […]

Meticulously crafted emotional dramatic jazz lashed with classical soundtrack / hip-hop elements to create great urban modern yet timeless soundscapes. In many too many words a description of what you can expect from Newham’s melancholy mastermind, though language was unnecessary when Alfa plonked into his seat at the keys, all instruments concentric upon his sturdy […]

Pitchfork – Arms Akimbo

As you drive, the golden hour illuminates the crimson seascape with a setting burning yellow sun that hangs over the darkening waters of California. Wispy clouds of faded white are scrawled across the canvas of […]

Chambers has a versatile voice – moving from speak-singing to pure, powerful vocals, “This ain’t love, this ain’t love”. She captures the intense, tumultuous emotions involved in love […]

Ozade – Selfish Selflessness

There’s funky guitar, husky vocals and assorted instruments and waves of sound in this “Selfish Selflessness” track. The hook will be ringing in your ear long after you have listened, I think my favourite part is a semi-breakdown after the second chorus, of ethereal, whistling instruments on top of a steady drum beat which leads […]
