Listen to TORMENT & GLORY

Brian Cook’s bass tone needs no introduction. And even if it did, you wouldn’t hear the words, such is the incredible, inimitable rumble he can conjure. For his latest project though, the former member of Botch and current member of Russian Circles and Sumac, is going solo, and going down the decibels. Under the name Torment & Glory, Cook will […]

Listen to INCASEYOULEAVE

Incaseyouleave describe themselves as “miserable screamo/emo/punk from London” but every listen to the quintet’s fantastically-named debut EP, ‘Time and Why It Doesn’t Deserve Us’ makes me want to throw my arms in the air and smile. There’s some real heavy stuff on the lyric sheet but the words are carried by electrified punk rock, by brilliantly unpredictable rock’n’roll, and by […]

Since calling it quits in 2015, Maybeshewill have played a farewell tour, been hand-picked by Robert Smith to headline a festival, and then, over a year ago now, the boys in the band teased a slight return with an enigmatic video. I was one of the grown men crying at their final London show but it’s almost like the band […]

Watch a SLOW CRUSH video

Slow Crush’s 2018 debut album is one worth talking about. And the Belgian shoegazers have quite rightly taken every opportunity to do since its release. There have been a couple of vinyl presses, in a handful of appealing variants, and even a guitar pedal branded with the record’s artwork. Now, with a move to new labels (Church Road and Quiet […]

Listen to WELTRAUMRAUSCHEN

As far as I can tell, Weltraumrauschen is a one-man operation. If so, they make a mighty impressive, cohesive, and complete kind of sound. As far as I can tell, that name translates as space noise. If so, it’s pretty damn apt. Sure, there are some lo-fi burbles, bleak lyrics, and downer jams on the band’s debut album, ‘Nothing to […]

Listen to JOY IN BLUE

Joy in Blue formed last year. And that alone should be reason enough to give them a chance- finding like-minded musicians, starting a new band, and devoting time and energy to writing, practicing, and recording your first demos can be hard enough at the best of times, let alone in the middle of a pandemic. The Portsmouth four-piece don’t need […]
