Album Review: Various Artists – Brits & Pieces

Posted on 30 Nov 2020 at 8:41am

Brits & Pieces is a new collection born of social media.

Here is an album which proves that anything is possible with passion, enthusiasm and hard work.

Nearly two years ago, a 90s indie fan set up a Twitter account with a view to sharing memories, merchandise and anything else from the decade.

Primarily centred (but not exclusively) around Britpop, Marc Rossiter’s feed quickly became a treasure trove for fans of the era, especially through his wealth of personal photographs of luminaries from the era.

As the account gained more and more followers, new bands were recommended to Rossiter and, inspired by the Shine series, he took it upon himself to release a compilation album of independent British artists.

Now, with the tracks having been mastered by Nick Brine (engineer of (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and The Stone Roses’ Second Coming), the CD is available to purchase from Rough Trade, with all profits being distributed to the bands equally.

Review: Laundromat – Green EP

Posted on 27 Nov 2020 at 8:19am

The second of three EPs planned by Laundromat into 2021 is out today.

Following on from the earlier Blue EP (see what he did there?), Meet Me In St Louis frontman Toby Hayes unveils more bedroom recordings.

Like its predecessor, the charm in this EP lies in its intimate, lo-fi textures and its intense, in-your-ear vocals. With 6 Music support from Lauren Lavern and Steve Lamacq already under his belt, anticipation builds with each new release from the Brighton man.
