Listen 2022: April Highlights

What is not to love about April? The month of the perfect date, the buzz of festival season fast approaching, and of course, some great new music. This was the month I had been waiting for, with two highly anticipated album releases as well as a flurry of singles from favourites new and old.

Listen 2022: February Highlights

Is it too soon to put forward ideas for album of the year? Too much to feature the same band in two consecutive round ups? Perhaps we’ll hold fire on any claims of album of the year right now, but there is absolutely a stand out, and as for featuring the same band twice in a row? Can’t have too much of a good thing now, can you?

Listen 2022: January Highlights

What better way to spend the longest month of the year than getting stuck in to a whole load of fresh music? From hot new singles to highly anticipated album releases, 2022 has come in hard and fast with some brilliant material and I can’t wait to hear even more.

Track of the Week: Molly Burman – Everytime

This week’s top track comes from someone who is very quickly becoming a new favourite of mine. Molly Burman’s songs ooze pure bliss with their bedroom pop energy, all the while tackling relatable and generally exasperating moments of growing up as a woman. Her latest single, ‘Everytime’ delivers a sweet and soothing tone to a narrative of finally finding love and appreciation for yourself.

Track Of The Week: SPQR – Fault Lines

First things first – yes I have decided to change from a collective feature to a Track of the Week. For one thing it will keep me productive with regular updates – at least that’s the idea. It also gives me the chance to really get into one track, rather than casting a brief look at a few. This week’s top track is the latest single from Liverpool four piece SPQR, a band I have really come to love since reviewing their No Brain, No Pain EP last year.

Review: ĠENN – Liminal EP

In need of a little time out from the world? Brighton quartet ĠENN’s latest release Liminal is a more than suitable antidote. Casting a shoegaze spell on punk, the new EP takes a trip through psychedelic grooves and funky rhythms. Less head in the clouds and more feeling empowered, it is made for playing loud and letting go.

Listen 2021: Top Tracks #4

This month, and this last week in particular, has been such a treat in many ways. Firstly, we have my new favourites Sports with another new single, along with their latest EP, Get A Good Look Pt 1. It has been a couple weeks now but I still cannot get enough. Secondly, we have my teen reawakening with the return of The Horrors – going back to their Strange House days no less. It got me reminiscing on their varying albums and how much I adore each one in its own way. Thirdly we have the even newer Little Suspicions with a dreamy little indie number – so easy on the ears, I cannot wait to see what this band do. Finally, well, we have Wolf Alice, need I say anymore? Regardless, let’s get into it.

Listen 2021: Top Tracks #3

Sometimes you listen to new songs back to back, other times you pick a few and let them stew. Some of my recent favourites have been out for some time now, while some are fresh from the kitchen. Either way, Listen 2021 is growing into a fairly eclectic but not too far fetched mix of songs. It is ultimately a collection of my pure unadulterated favourites from here there and everywhere – whether that be the new and upcoming with fresh and exciting hits, or the well established with straight up undeniable bangers. Essentially, it’s a little bit of me and that means almost anything goes.
