New Music – Jiexi Zhao ‘Inke’

Soulful, skilful, silky smooth sex appeal saturates every second of this genre bending R&B fusion EP. Drawing influence from his Asian heritage and masterfully mixing it into the soul music and influence he has grown up with, Jiexi Zhao has created a truly unique masterpiece that globetrots all around the world as easily as its…

New Music – Lover Lamp ‘Country Police’

Lover Lamp are ridiculous. Lover Lamp are radical. Lover Lamp are radiculous. From the beginning of the track we knew we were in for a ride but the raucous and rowdy tale of rock’n’roll suppression and police brutality was more than even we bargained for. It went hell for leather from the outset and kept…

Boomtown Ch11 Review

As we left the site at the end of another eclectically electric Boomtown Fair we officially put on the badge of the 7-year veteran.

New Music – Kitty Stewart ‘Talula’

Following on from the back of a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of two EP’s, Dorset based folk-fairy Kitty Stewart has delivered on the goods.

From age 12 when he released his first track “Till The Day I Die” with the endorsement and following of Kymani Marley…

New Music – Dusk Brothers ‘Storms, Rum, Liars, And Guns’ EP

A good EP shows off a bands range, it gives you an idea of the scope of what they can do and Dusk Brothers have put together something truly remarkable in that respect. Every track plays off the last, building into something greater than the sum of its parts. In listening, you can almost see the shamanic twosome stomping away on stage and summoning this surreal and seriously sexy sound.

Boomtown Chapter 11: A Radical Line-up

Boomtown Fair have released at least the tickling tease of a line-up. With the countless small venues and stages scattered around the site, there is obviously plenty more still to come but this makes for a tasty treat for those who already have their golden ticket. The announcement came alongside a fake-out but much welcomed…
