The second full-length record from French metallic noise rockers Sofy Major, Idolize, is a testament to the trio’s perseverance. On October 29th, hurricane Sandy destroyed the Brooklyn studio in which the outfit was going to track, annihilating all the recording equipment and instruments. After a couple of days they luckily managed to start recording with […]


Bonjour. Oui oui monsieur et madames. Je M’appelle Davey. Comment se fait tout le monde aujourd’hui? July 14 is Bastille Day, the national day of France. I could have written a one thousand word blog detailing French music over the decades. From Edith Piaf to Phoenix, and David Guetta to Gojira, I’m certain it could […]


Leeds-based heavy rockers Hawk Eyes are about to release their brand new four-track EP on August 19th.  The quartet’s potent mesh-up of post-hardcore, sludge metal and alt rock landed their latest full-length Ideas the top spot on my 2012 year-end list. With the new fan-funded release, they do not disappoint either. Produced by Andy Hawkins, […]


Sithu Aye has always been a shining star in the instrumental progressive scene, standing out from the crowd for his unique flair. Oh, and that’s right– he just received his master’s in physics too. So on top of all the music the man’s released (and in only the last few years,) he’s been busy climbing […]

Maybe there is something in this ‘climate change’ brouhaha after all. The “British Summer” ceased to be a thing a long time ago. We pretty much make-do with “mild” and be done with it… …but now over here we are experiencing the briefest of heat waves. A week is a luxury. Some of you who […]

the fun years – fucking milwaukee’s been hesher forever Ever since I was little I’ve always dreamt about having a machine that could just translate your thoughts instantly and directly into word form and transcribe them onto the page. When I was young, these were happy-faced, benevolent machines that always kept your privacy and never […]

Hey folks, We’ve made a bunch of changes to the system: – Tags on band pages now update every 15 minutes instead of instantly. – ‘Third’ genres should no longer appear unless they have at least 15% of the total votes. – Non-approved tags will no longer appear on band pages or navigation. – Mods […]


Hey folks, We’ve launched a brand new tagging system for genres. Please use this thread to report any bugs or suggestions you might have. There will likely be a lot of volatility in the first few days as tags get updated. Please be patient throughout this process.


Following the electro abomination that was 2009’s ‘In This Light and On This Evening’, even fans of English indie-rock band Editors could be forgiven for approaching their follow-up ‘The Weight of Your Love’ with equal parts trepidation and dread. Anthemic, stadium-baiting lead single ‘A Ton of Love’ helped allay fears a little, although even the […]


On July the 26th-28th, the Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island will once again play host to the annual Newport Folk Festival. A staple of both the town and the festival circuit, the Newport Folk Festival was first established in 1959 as a counterpart to the already established Newport Jazz Festival. The festival […]


Yesterday, it was discovered that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their child North. That’s right. North West. And maybe it’s because they actually decided to name their child a stupid pun a precocious seventh grader might come up with when pressed to come up with a name for a baby with the surname […]

My first experience with event production company the Do LaB came about in what I imagine was a similar way for many unfamiliar with the groundbreaking visual artist collective – the Oasis tent at Coachella, where the relentless heat is blessedly filtered through a prism of high-pressure water for a few merciful moments. People came […]

As promised, we want to whet your collective appetite for what the site’s tagging system and band pages will potentially look like (as you know, things are subject to change, but as of now, the owner’s on pace to start rolling this out sometime in Q3!). Click the images to enlarge. There is a high […]
