Album Review: Hands Off Gretel – “Burn the Beauty Queen”

A riotous post punk grunge album with a young Courtney in the making, get this band and album into your life now! Riot Grrrl, a term often used for any noisy girl punk band, but this often belies the original subculture movement which was essentially trying to get a female viewpoint across what was a very male dominated indie/punk music scene. The early exponents cited as Siouxsie Soux, Chrissie Hynde,… Keep Reading

Review: Ed Harcour ‘Furnaces’

The Mercury prize nominated musician returns with an infectious horn-laden anthem, taken from his forthcoming seventh solo album. ‘Furnaces’ is a dark melodic track, that presents itself as a different sound for the singer-songwriter. The song, which is taken from his new album and shares the same title, is his first release on a major record label – Polydor.

Album review: The Cadillac Three “Bury Me In My Boots”

Southern Rock from Nashville – smooth and gnarly sounding album This is not a country record like you know it.
