Yore is the latest project from East London music creative Callum Brown. Having previously worked with the likes of Mint Field and Ulrika Spacek, Yore is an opportunity for Brown to experiment further. Nevertheless, the upcoming album shows that this is by no means a solo affair. The self-titled debut, set for release on 4th December, succeeds wonderfully in its bid to celebrate indie collaboration. From Dream Wife’s Rakel Mjöll, to White Flowers’ Katie Drew, this is certainly something I could not resist listening to over and over, so it only felt right to get some more insight on it all from Callum himself:Continue reading “Q&A with Yore”
Emotive, personal and downright magnificent are just a few words that you could use to describe the latest offering from The Last Dinosaur. Wholeness is the third album from Jamie Cameron under this moniker; an incredibly immersive piece of art, and a real testament to the power of his musical creativity. With some work on this release having been started in 2012, it is by all means a long time coming, but something about that makes each note sound more refined. Every little bit counts towards something important, each element standing out in a different way with every listen.Continue reading “The Last Dinosaur – Wholeness: A Profound & Personal Journey”
One of my favourite things about music has always been the way in which we consume it. I have never cared about perfection, nor how to define a sound. I often struggle to describe bands to people based on what they sound like. In a world full of such technology it just makes more sense to pull out your phone, open Spotify and press play. However if you want to talk about what the band are about, what they mean to me, or to others, then I am absolutely here.
I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a country music fan, but during a writing slump I decided to pick up this review opportunity and it was surprisingly inspiring.
Though not exactly my taste in music, I was enamoured by the passion behind this album and the feelings that it evoked. Countries is a truly profound album with a heartfelt story as Van William explores heartbreak in many ways, from the loss of his family business, to the ending of a six year relationship.
For me, 2017 was the year of amazing albums; these came in abundance from exciting debuts, to bold new releases from some of my old favourites. When it came to writing the yearly round up with Vulture Hound, it was the latter that got my attention.
Where do I start with this band? From the moment I heard ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’, I knew I was hooked. It was just one of many songs introduced to me by my boyfriend at the time. Our tastes in music were fairly matched, and he especially had a good ear for bands that I would adore.
It has been nearly a week since Superfood released their absolute belter of a second album and I still can’t get enough. I hadn’t written anything in a little while and wanted to get back on track with it all. I think it’s safe to say that the press release for Bambino came just in time.
In the last month or so I have fallen deeply in love with Meadowlark. From listening to their album ready for review, to travelling to Guildford for a live show, my thoughts on this band have gone from “yeah they’re cool” to “omg I just can’t stop talking about them”.
If you read my post about the Tashaki Miyaki album, you might remember that I mentioned another dream pop album that I received on the same day. Well, I can finally share it with you! I fell in love with Morningside by Fazerdaze instantly, and was incredibly happy to be able to listen to it way over a month before it was to be released. That said, with all the time came a lot of procrastination, so when it came to writing up my review, I had listened to this album perhaps a little too much.
