Sleepwave’s debut album hits hard in all the right places. It’s one of the better alt-rock albums that have come out in a long time. It brings in electronic elements, but not like all those other electro-core bands, and there’s a smooth dynamic in each song so there’s always something different around the next coda. It’s refreshing and breathes live into the genre with a solid debut from former Underoath   Read More ...

It’s early days for alternative rock three-piece Brothers, but from the tenacity and energy they put out as they travel the west coast of Scotland, playing everything from bars and coffee shops to established venues in Glasgow, you would never be able to tell. Formed in 2012 in Ayrshire, Scotland by Fraser Donaldson (vocals and lead guitar) and Cairns Azbraitis (drums and backing vocals) before the addition of Curtis McConnell   Read More ...

The War On Drugs – Lost In The Dream (March 2014)   The War On Drugs is kind of like one of those pieces of art where a large portrait or scene is made up of hundreds of little ones. When you are up close, you see small, individual works, but when you back away, small blends into big and you get the whole picture; TWOD blend styles and influences   Read More ...
