The Ivor Novello Awards won’t be hosting a ceremony this year

Posted on 30 Jun 2020 at 9:10am

They’re considered one of the UK’s most prestigious to win, but those artists who are honoured with an Ivor Novello Award this year won’t be getting the usual acclaim we’re accustomed to.

Having already been delayed to September, the decision to still announce Ivors winners for 2020 on the 2nd of that month has been taken, but London’s Grosvenor House Hotel won’t be hosting an awards ceremony as normal.

Album Review: Khruangbin – Mordechai

Posted on 30 Jun 2020 at 8:18am

When you make music that comes from nearly everywhere, having a sense of place, it seems, is even more important.

Khruangbin (Thai for plane or make up your own truth) are unlikely Texans who’ve been building global momentum around multi-hued tunes, their sound a Bacchanalian sort of funk that’s always pleasing on the soul. But to get to this inner space, they first had to go home.

Years on the road touring their first two releases – 2015’s The Universe Smiles and 2018’s Con Todo El Mundo – to ever increasing crowds left them road-weary, empty vessels. With the sort of shared bond that only months together can forge, bassist Laura Lee Ochoa, guitarist Mark Speer and drummer Donald ‘DJ’ Johnson returned to their barn recording facility in Burton, Texas and intuitively recognised that some taking stock was needed. Whilst out on a trip to a local waterfall with a new friend, Laura jumped into the pool and had an epiphany; the friend’s name was Mordechai.
