Listen to SPANISH LOVE SONGS

It seems Spanish Love Songs have been around a while now but somehow the LA-based outfit and I have never crossed paths until tonight- me up too late for a workday, knowing that sleep means waking up, and them blasting through ‘Schmaltz’, a wordy and wonderful collection of anthemic indie and killer punk rock. For fans of The Gaslight Anthem, […]

#MODERATEROCKRECOMMENDS- October 2018

Sure feels like the end of 2018 is screaming up fast huh? Before we truly enter list season and Album of the Year territory though, October was worth stopping and listening out for. From new names to returning legends, from neoclassical gloom to brusing British everythingcore, and three bands with deities in their name, the #moderaterockrecommends playlist features my favourite […]

Listen to BIG JESUS

Big Jesus have somehow passed me by until now and I have no idea how. The Atlanta, Georgia four-piece play fuzzy, buzzy, warm and anthemic, capital-r rock that’s right up my street and, hey, maybe yours. They released one full-length in 2016 and new EP, ‘Not a Dreamer’, is out today. For fans of Torche, Nothing, and My Bloody Valentine. […]

#MODERATEROCKRECOMMENDS- September 2018

Listen to REMOTE VIEWING

There are no prizes for guessing what a new band featuring former members of Palehorse and I Want You Dead who play songs about suicide and death called things like ‘Sonic Euthanasia’ might sound like. This is black and acrid doom and sludgy noise terror made for fans of Integrity, Unsane, and the end of days.

Listen to BEARFOOT BEWARE

Bearfoot Beware have been together for a while now but their second album ‘Sea Magnolia’, released earlier this year, is the first time their spiky, energetic sound has made its way into these ears. Fans of Alpha Male Tea Party, Bear vs. Shark, and other excellent bands with odd names should welcome the Leeds trio into theirs.

#MODERATEROCKRECOMMENDS- August 2018

Listen to ANTIER

Antier play post-rock. But the Barcelona boys don’t do it quite like anyone else. A defiantly Spanish, proudly poetic, thoroughly dynamic duo, they resist clichés and explore the sound with energy, invention and art. Capable of making a thunderous noise and heartbreaking whisper with equal intensity, their 2016 debut album ‘De la Quimera, el Dolor’, is essential listening.
