TRACK REVIEW: ROSTAM – EOS

That new Vampire Weekend album you’ve been waiting patiently for might be pushed back further with the recent release of multi instrumentalist and producer Rostam Batmanglij’s new single EOS.

Album Review: Codist – Nuclear Family

New Years Resolution for this site: stop starting every article about new bands by creating context about how music in Scotland is thriving.

Track review: Savages – Adore

Savages are not a conventional “girl band” in the way that the likes of Little Mix are. In fact, the use of that term seems obsolete as the London-based act pack tracks with such brutish force that they put most other bands in the genre to shame, helping to destroy this stereotype of female groups […]
