Frank Turner – ‘The Third Three Years’

Fans of Frank Turner are frequently rewarded. When he’s not gigging, the 32-year-old is doing DJ sets, playing toilet circuit venues with lesser-known collaborators such as Billy The Kid and…

Lee Ranaldo And The Dust – ‘Acoustic Dust’

After Sonic Youth split in 2011, Lee Ranaldo crawled away from the wreckage of the Thurston Moore-Kim Gordon marriage with a thirst for simplicity. He released two albums of straightforward…

Cult Of Youth – ‘Final Days’

Cult Of Youth’s third album for Brooklyn label Sacred Bones is brutal. Sean Ragon remains the gothic punks' central figure, but here he is part of a five-piece band. On…

Iggy Azalea – ‘Reclassified’

In September 1976, The Saints’ garage punk classic ‘(I’m) Stranded’ was NME’s Single Of The week. Time has dulled some of the Brisbane punk legends’ snarl but none of their…

Fryars – ‘Power’

Benjamin Garrett’s second album as Fryars arrives five years after his debut 'Dark Young Hearts' and two years after excitement-building singles 'Love So Cold' and 'In My Arms'. In a…

The Brian Jonestown Massacre – ‘+-‘ EP

For a band so deeply rooted in the joint-fugged 1960s, Brian Jonestown Massacre’s latest EP follows rather a modern concept. Following their latest album, May’s ‘Revelation’, this shotgun release is…

Paul Smith And Peter Brewis – ‘Frozen By Sight’
