Review: Lande Hekt – Going To Hell

Going To Hell is the debut solo LP from Muncie Girls’ Lande Hekt, offering something a little more personal in prose that is both poetic and to the point. This album sees Hekt open up about her journey of coming out and embracing her truth within heteronormative culture.

The Last Dinosaur – Wholeness: A Profound & Personal Journey

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.

Mini Book Reviews #3

Books really are a little piece of magic. Though I had imagined myself having read more books by this point in the year, those that I have finished have been thoroughly enjoyable. These particular reviews come from yet another selection of borrowed books. In a way these are my favourite; knowing that I have someone who understands the thoughts and feelings each story evokes. Of course, a lot of the books I’m reading lately have been read by many peers, but in any case, it’s just a nice thing to share.

Van William – Countries : VH Album Review

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.

Wolf Alice – Visions of a Life

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.

Superfood – Bambino || VH Album Review

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.

Meadowlark || VH Reviews

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”.

COMMON PEOPLE 2017 || VH Festival Review

I was lucky enough to get press for Common People festival again this year, and much like last time, my favourite part of the day was The Uncommon Stage. Local bands were full of raw passion and the atmosphere in that tent was just unshakable.

Fazerdaze – Morningside || VH Album Review

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.

Jen Gloeckner – VINE || VH Album Review

I recently reviewed Jen Gloeckner’s new album VINE for Vulture Hound and was fortunate enough to be sent a free copy of the record on vinyl, which clearly made me very happy.
