"EMA- a crazy expansive album from the voice behind GOWNS"
Go Tell Fire To The Mountain

Eye Contact

"Gang Gang Dance create just the right album that sits hafway between Animal Collective and dance"
Take Care Take Care Take Care
Take Care Take Care Take Care
"The latest offering from Explosions in the Sky is more of the same gorgeous melodic post-rock we've come to expect. Their talent is almost disgusting"
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

"White Denim somehow manage to keep their 3rd LP together despite the insane time shifts and awkward rythms. A+"
I Want That You Are Always Happy
I Want That You Are Always Happy
"I have seen the Middle east live and they are a beast of a machine. Their Debut disappinted some (wanting them to redo Blood from the ep 10 times) but it truly is a gem. Too bad they've broken up"
Father, Son, Holy Ghost
Father, Son, Holy Ghost

"A scuzzy garage indebted collection of psyche nuggets from these boys"
Arabia Mountain

Underneath The Pine

What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?
What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?
"NME would have you believe that the Vaccines are the new strokes...Don't believe it they're fantastic but not life changing. Their debut is a rollicking crash through the last 30 years of british rock"
Hollow

"Cut off your hands are indebted to the spirit of Morrissey in fact they've probably sold their soul to the boy with the thorn in his side, But I don't care it's fantastic."
Crystal Theatre

"Belles will ring love the zombies, the animals, the beatles etc etc. etc. They're young, prolific and fantastic"
