It has been a while since I’ve connected to an album as strongly as I did with Tashaki Miyaki’s debut LP, The Dream. As soon as this album was put forward to the Vulture Hound team for review, I just had to take it. Dream pop? Shoegaze? Yes please. That’s my thing.

It’s always nice to get a little recognition from a PR, to the point that they come directly to you in regards to reviewing one of their artists. It’s just the kind of ego boost that every writer needs. So when Ellie from Stay Loose sent me over Leif Vollebekk’s latest album Twin Solitude, I was absolutely up for giving it a listen.

Oh lord, oh my giddy aunt, Ry X, you enchanting soul. I’ve been into Ry X’s music for a little while now, however in the last year or so I may have neglected him a little. This was until I found out there was an opportunity to get guest list through Vulture Hound for his recent UK tour. I just had to go to his show at Shepherds Bush.
