Review: The Statue Thieves – ‘Revolutions In Your Mind’

Posted on 23 Jun 2015 at 8:39am

 

The Statue Thieves are a psychedelic rock band from North London whose sound ingrates elements of country, blues, and even funk – like the best artists synthesizing a multitude of influences, while at the same time creating something totally brand new.

Revolutions In Your Mind‘ is the band’s latest EP, and it sees them coming more in tune with their own sound.

Review: Forrest - 'Soluna'

Review: Forrest – ‘Soluna’

Posted on 08 Jun 2015 at 4:40pm

The twenty first century seems like such a difficult one for the sensitive young lad: pulled from pillar to post psychologically, such are the conflicted messages he’s bombarded with daily he hardly seems to know if it’s best to embrace his femininity or alternatively man up. One last refuge does remain for anyone wandering lonely as cloud though: the darkest recesses of the bedroom are still welcoming even in the 3D printer age, complete with suitably introvert music to darken the mood to taste.

Review: The Grand - 'Incapacitated, Ill Fated  and In Love'

Review: The Grand – ‘Incapacitated, Ill Fated and In Love’

Posted on 19 May 2015 at 8:43am

A trio from Wakefield, The Grand have very little in common with the city’s other recent musical export, The Cribs.

Whereas the brothers Jarman have made their anti-career through dissecting the minutiae of life taking place in a goldfish bowl, Messrs. Andy Jennings, Thomas Peel and Russ Smith write songs which they describe somewhat ambiguously as, “Transatlantic Pop”, in the process mining influences which have their roots well outside of the boundaries of West Yorkshire.
