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. An honor that you can wear with as much pride as you can slight embarrassment as it compliments your now quickly receding hairline and is apparently obvious to the teeny boppers…

New Music – Travis Karter ‘White Panther’

Travis Karter is an artist destined to make an impact, he is ravenously hungry and not for the trappings and gold chains that usually hold hip hop down, but for something far purer. 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…

Single Review – CHÆMBERS ‘We Don’t Say Goodbye’

To be honest; the genre of witch house music is a new one to me and I’m sure most of you are equally virginal. However, If you were to assume that this is a genre of music that is exclusively produced in spooky Amityville horror style basements, you’d definitely be barking up the right tree.…

Michale Graves Gig Review

We caught up with Michale Graves and his band during their 2018 UK tour after getting tickets for a last minute date added on at the recently saved Fleece in Bristol. The band had been on tour for six months and this show would mark the end of their UK tour. Michale Graves fronted The…
