Yorkshire’s musical output over the years has been – and this is an understatement if ever there was one – quite commendable.

FANS is one band from the region to have recently ventured out of their familiar territory for a gig at the Sebright Arms in London; sounding something like The Vaccines abutting The Strokes, or the other way around, the three-piece played a set which made up for in energy and sheer loudness what it lacked in length.

Review: Sinkane x Peaking Lights - 'Mean Dub' EP

Review: Sinkane x Peaking Lights – ‘Mean Dub’ EP

Posted on 12 Aug 2015 at 8:39am

A former session musician for the likes of Caribou and Yeasayer, ‘Mars‘ – frontman Ahmed Gallab‘s second album with Sinkane – was something of a slow burning revelation when released at the beginning of 2013.

Stringing together inspirations as disparate as blaxploitation soundtracks, krautrock, The Steve Miller Band and vintage Roxy Music, the collage effect was as hip as it was engaging, with its follow up ‘Mean Love‘ adding a layer of (probably needed) pop sensibility, one which helped achieve the band a much deserved higher profile.

If ‘Mean Love’ won them friends in higher places, this new four track EP ‘Mean Dub‘ is however less of a nagging reminder of its excellence so much as a trip right off the reservation.

Review: C Duncan - 'Architect'

Review: C Duncan – ‘Architect’

Posted on 08 Jul 2015 at 7:12am

Every so often an album is released which leads you saying to yourself, “I wonder how this was made?”.

Not because of the obvious – notes were sung, chords were strummed and drums were hit – but because its scope and intricacy are so imaginative and fascinating.

Fascinating is a word that sounds, in this twenty first century, a lot more affected and prissy than it used to, however it’s an adjective which sits comfortably with ‘Architect‘s timeless, charming aesthetic and in Christopher Duncan we appear to have unearthed a writer/composer of rare talent.

The son of classical musicians, his debut album was built in a Glasgow flat using a painstaking process of recording each instrument at a time to evolve the music naturally like a stalactite, allowing for his singular vision to be maintained across the process.
