Frozen Houses – Goldest Teeth

Settle yourself in with a warm brew, a couple of custard creams and let Devon lad Frozen Houses take you back to a simpler time. His ability to soothe the mind is exactly what the doctor ordered for whatever morning it is that you’re trying to cope with the worrying ramifications of the night before. Or even…

Premiere: Jasmine Rodgers – Milky Way

If your dad has one of the most easily recognisable voices of all time then how on earth do you go about making music without drawing relentless comparisons? Well, Jasmine Rodgers looks to have done the right thing by creating beautiful music that is so far removed from her father (that bloke from Free/Bad Company and so on)…

High Tide 15:47 – And The Bubble Burst

Never before have I had an excuse, albeit stupidly tenuous, to write the words longshore drift in a music review. However, this bunch are called High Tide 15:47 and I had too many wasted hours in geography lessons to miss this opportunity. As pointless as it was. They’re a dab hand at putting some guitar-ridden pop sounds…

L.A. Spring – Passerby

As summer comes to an end and we here in London brace ourselves for another seven months of not seeing the sun we’ll have to find ways to trick ourselves to feel as though the positive vibes are still flowing. So get your sunnies, surf shorts and those weird little ankle socks that no-one should…

Youth Hostel – It’s All In Your Head

If you’re trying to get my attention then starting off with a Merseyside accent is always a damn good way. Oh, and brass, can never have too much brass. Fortunately for Youth Hostel they’ve got both of these in spades and know exactly how to use them to have me grinning wider than that time I accidentally…

George Cosby – All Of Your Love

With a voice transported straight from a forgotten era this gentle, rising beauty from George Cosby is hard not to sit down and enjoy a warm hot chocolate to. Before you go too heavy on the marshmallows though it’s best to grab a blanket and a coupe of tissues – not for anything untoward, there’s just a…
