Album Review: Tricky – Fall To Pieces

Posted on 14 Sep 2020 at 8:05am

For whatever reason we’re in a new era, where the people we used to once recognise as untouchable (after all, we did call them stars) are three steps less removed, somehow in our hands. Not everybody treats fame like this, but Tricky has experienced anguish like few people have had to deal with, and he continues to face it down on his own terms.

It’s been twenty-five years since Maxinquaye redrew British music’s lay lines, driving a wedge into the dominance of American artists in hip-hop and beyond which would eventually become a fissure. Since then, he’s led a life he could barely have imagined when growing up on Bristol’s Knowle West estate, a story vividly chronicled in his 2019 autobiography Hell Is Around The Corner.

The book ends in a moment of acute devastation with the death of his twenty-four-year-old daughter Mazy; Fall To Pieces is his first album since the tragedy, and one on which he addresses grief but also the racism his good career fortune has both highlighted and shielded him from.

Tom Grennan announces VR gig at London’s Brixton Academy

Posted on 14 Sep 2020 at 7:13am

When Tom Grennan played a sold-out Brixton Academy show not long after releasing his debut album Lighting Matches, he probably didn’t think he’d back there barely a couple of years later playing to not a soul. Such is 2020 life though, and with crowds in music venues still a long way off, he’s announced a live streamed gig from the venue on October 2nd. It’ll be a VR experience on MelodyVR, such is 2020 life.
