Album: Big Thief – U.F.O.F

The days of watching our childhood through the lense of blurry handheld camera recordings are fading fast, replaced by the picture-perfect quality of smart phones. It’s regrettable. There’s something special about those shaky recordings, the characters becoming clearer with every viewing, the landscapes and locations more identifiable, the memories growing in strength. Big Thief’s third […]

Album of the week: Tacocat – This Mess Is A Place

If dystopia hosted a disco, Tacocat’s fourth-full length ‘This Mess Is A Place’ would be a strong selection from the doom-ridden DJ. The rainbow-flecked guitars, playful backing vocals and huge choruses would certainly have you on your feet, whilst the sarcastic one liners, “what a time to be barely alive” would enshroud you in reality.

Chicago trio Dehd couldn’t sound more classic if they tried. Their scuzzy, infectious riffs could be pulled straight from an MC5 record, yet whether it’s the jousting voices of lead singers Emily Kempf and Jason Balla or their stood-up sticksman Eric McGrady, there’s something wonderfully idiosyncratic about Dehd. Their new album ‘Water’ documents Kemp and […]

Track by track: Mammoth Penguins

From the moment I heard Emma Kupa sing ‘I love you, I love you, I love you, fuck it all, fuck it all, fuck it all’ on ‘I Wanna’, the lead single from Mammoth Penguins’ third album ‘There’s No Fight We Both Can’t Win’, I couldn’t help but become a Mammoth Penguins fanboy.  With an […]
