The latest singles reviewed by NME’s Sophie Wilkinson Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – ‘Your Love’ ‘Your Love’ is reminiscent in many ways of Armand Van Helden’s ‘U Don’t…

“Hi,” says the first man/boy to take the stage, “I’m Justin Bieber.” WHAT!?! Has the booker of the Generation Next tour lost their mind? One of the world’s biggest teen-pop…

It’s easy to see why Spector provoke sniffiness in certain quarters. Yet as indie withers on the vine commercially and its bands respond by affecting an air of sneering nonchalance…

Never has a name been quite so misleading as the one Buffalo native Kyle J Reigle has chosen for his musical alter ego. By rights, Cemeteries should be a black-metal…

Few phrases can strike as much fear into the heart of a gentle soul as ‘electronic prog’. Very recent history is littered with the corpses of well-meaning bands who, for…

Fuck, is it that time of year already? Not quite, but apparently we’re close enough for Thorn – she of the dolorous voice behind Everything But The Girl – to…

With a melancholic tone to turn sprightly sentiments into something innately heartbreaking, F&O frontman Tim Cohen’s voice is the perfect contrast to his band’s garage-rock jangles and San Fran vibes.…

Few bands have fallen from the table of hype with the velocity of The Twang. Soon after they were on the cover of NME, knives came out for second album…

Laziness is the last thing you could accuse Neil Young of. Having reunited with Crazy Horse for June’s ‘Americana’ album, the veteran Canadian singer-songwriter now presents his second album of…

Somebody give Christopher Porpora a job writing film scores, quick. The second album from the NYC singer-songwriter and poet should be the soundtrack to a bleak but well-dressed indie-romance flick,…

The title of Calvin Harris’ third album seems like a pre-emptive strike – as in, “No, honestly, it’s only been 18 months since the lead single came out”. And it…

I’ve seen my fair share of muddy fields this summer (and Reading was the final straw for my poor Wellies), so the thought of facing one more festival is a…

Egyptian Hip Hop – ‘SYH’ For anyone who can’t remember 2009 (“if you can remember it, you weren’t doing it properly etc etc”) Egyptian Hip Hop were the faces…

Peace – ‘California Daze’ We first heard rumours of ‘California Daze’ a few months ago when Peace’s friend and tourmate, Will Rees of the Mystery Jets, said the B-Town…

Yeah: RUNNING! Yeah: JUMPING! Yeah: THROWING! Yeah: CYCLING! This is Dizzee’s Olympics song, which talks about “gold” and being a “champion” and stuff. It’s rubbish, like all the Olympics songs.…

The tour-only seven inch track treads between the requisite ‘zany’ Brooklynite awkwardness and pure melodic thrill with some aplomb. Scrappy as it tries its best to sound, this ode to…

Tame Impala prove their next album’s set to be just as brain-frazzling as their debut with this Marc Bolan-indebted psych killer stomp, complete with sparks of retro synths and one…
