The Weekly Froth!

February 22, 2013 News, Reviews, Single No Comments

Mario Basanov

By Stef Siepel

February 22, 2013

The Weekly Froth! A weekly take on six tracks, most of which have recently popped up somewhere in the blogosphere. Bit of a mixed bag with a slight leaning towards house, disco, and remixes, but generally just anything that for some reason tickled the writer’s fancy. … Continue Reading

DVD Review: The Rolling Stones – Crossfire Hurricane

January 23, 2013 Audiovisual, News, Reviews No Comments

By Ben Gibson

January 23, 2013

It’s sometimes easy to forget that The Rolling Stones are even a band any more. They seem more like a monument, a piece of nostalgia with little value in the modern world, like typewriters or Betamax. So when the first incarnation of the Stones roar out some belting blues numbers in the opening minutes of this film it seems like an impressive, even vital piece of film-making. … Continue Reading

DVD Review : Meio Metro De Pedra – An Independent Broadcast About The Rock ‘N’ Roll Counterculture

By Kenny McMurtrie

January 16, 2013

Much like the allusion to a certain Liverpudlian quartet making an impact in Robert Harris’s Fatherland, Portugal, under the real life Salazar regime (1932 – 1968), managed to have a lively & rebellious rock ‘n’ roll scene during a seriously right-wing period of time, the history and legacy of which this well made documentary by Eduardo Morais records. … Continue Reading

Soundtrack Review: Berberian Sound Studio

Berberian Sound Studio

By Hayley Scott/Paul Stephen Gettings

January 15, 2013

For a film so inspired by musique concrete and a narrative so imbued with gothic idiosyncrasies, it only seems fitting that a band like Broadcast were recruited to compose its soundtrack. When vocalist and founding member Trish Keenan died of Pneumonia in 2011, we not only lost an omnipotent talent, but a truly remarkable band was swiped from our musical landscape, leaving us with an unfillable void. … Continue Reading

Everything Everything – Arc

By Ryan Lake

January 14, 2013

If you are already familiar with Everything Everything this album is all that you would expect from the Manchester quartet. For those who are not accustomed, the band are fantastically tight, well-practised purveyors of angular pop-funk entertainment. … Continue Reading

January 11, 2013

Book Review: Sylvie Simmons – I’m Your Man : The Life Of Leonard Cohen

January 10, 2013 Books, News, Reviews No Comments

By Chris Phillips

January 10, 2013

Sylvie Simmons‘ hefty and admirably assiduous biography of Leonard Cohen may be considered by far the most exhaustive yet in terms of factual detail, but a critical eye is sometimes frustratingly lacking.

Muso’s Guide’s Anticipated Albums Of 2013 – Part One

January 8, 2013 Album, Features, News No Comments

By Hayley Scott & Paul Stephen Gettings

January 08, 2013

There’s no denying it, 2012 was a stellar year for album releases, and as a New Year dawns we’re inevitably greeted with proclamations, rumours, confirmations and predictions of what will be defining 2013’s musical landscape. With rumours and definitive confirmations of long-awaited debuts and follow-ups from the likes of Daughter, Chvrches and Foxygen, along with announcements from familiar faces such as Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, The Strokes and The Pastels this year is already shaping up to be both a retrograded and excitingly fresh affair. … Continue Reading

DVD Review: Color Me Obsessed – A Film About the Replacements

January 7, 2013 Audiovisual, News, Reviews 1 Comment

By Richard Wink

December 28, 2012

A ramshackle rock ‘n’ roll band with the world at their feet. A motley crew of self-saboteurs who developed a devoted fan base yet effectively blew every chance to be as great as they could have been. ‘Color Me Obsessed’ leaves no stone unturned in putting the case forward as to why The Replacements should be the most important band in your life. … Continue Reading
