Hundred Waters - 'The Moon Rang Like A Bell'

“Show me love, show me love, show me love,” pleads Hundred Waters singer Nicole Miglis through a thatch of echoes and Auto-Tune as the Gainsville, Florida experimentalists’ second album whirrs into life. ‘The Moon Rang Like a Bell’...

Autobahn - 'Autobahn II'

Autobahn - 'Autobahn II'

Don’t be fooled by the Krautrocky name, implying a swish motorik cruise down futuristic highways: by the sound of it, the young men of Autobahn are more likely to be found parked up in some shadowy underpass, huffing on petrol fumes. From Leeds,...

Comet Gain - 'Paperback Ghosts'

Comet Gain - 'Paperback Ghosts'

Twenty years on the margins haven't dampened Comet Gain's spirits. Their seventh album finds the London indie veterans dusting their melancholy songs with hope and loveable melodies, each a compelling tale in its own right. This is literate,...

Yip Deceiver - 'Medallius'

Yip Deceiver - 'Medallius'

It seems likely that Athens, Georgia’s Yip Deceiver would prefer not to be thought of as an Of Montreal side project – while Davey Pierce and Nicolas Dobbratz were once members of the eccentric indie outfit, funked-up oily synthpop is their...

Eugene McGuinness - 'Chroma'

Eugene McGuinness - 'Chroma'

Despite him first appearing on rock's radar in 2007, even a music fan with Rain Man's memory skills would struggle to recall a hilarious interview quip from Eugene McGuinness. Few at gunpoint would be able to pick him out from the queue outside...

Example - 'Live Life Living'

Example - 'Live Life Living'

Example, aka Elliot Greave, may be a pop sensation in the UK, with two Number One hits and thousands of album sales to his name, but he remains an unusual star. So far, he has transitioned from MC to Pet Shop Boys-collaborating pop royalty. This...

Viet Cong - 'Cassette'

Viet Cong - 'Cassette'

‘Cassette’ has a dangerous history. Sales of Calgary DIY punks Viet Cong’s debut tape fuelled their van during 2013’s US tour. Then that van came inches from killing someone. Leaving New Orleans, the quartet – bar designated driver...
