This Is… L.A. Spring

A little while ago I got a lovely message on Soundcloud from a band called L.A.Spring. After ruling out any possibility of them being a bit like L.T.Smash – you know, from that ‘Party Posse’ episode of The Simpsons – I actually listened to their tunes and found out just how boss they are. So, after…

This Is… L’Amour Bleu

You might be forgiven for thinking L’Amour Bleu were a trendy French band, cigarettes loitering in the corner of their mouths as they show nonchalance and other stereotypical attributes. In actual fact, they were formed by Bloc Party’s Matt Tong and Palms’ Ryan Schaefer in New York and are more avant-garde punk than smashing up a radio with an extremely over-cooked…

This Is… Tweaks

What’s in a name? There’s a phrase about Roses or Quality Street or something that just escapes me – can’t have been written by anyone too spectacular anyway, it’s not exactly Shakespeare.

This Is… Sheepy

I’ll start with a brief apology to Sheepy for taking so long to get this together. Sorry lads, you’re ruddy ace and maybe I was just holding onto this too much because I wanted to hog it. The Liverpool trio are making some very exciting music indeed and remain one of the many beacons that prove the…

This Is… He Is A Pegasus

“I wouldn’t really class myself as a singer/songwriter, I’d class myself as a musician without a band.” Rarely have I come across someone at a live performance who I’ve be endlessly enthralled by before they’ve even finished the first song yet when I caught a glimpse of He Is A Pegasus at an Indigo Sessions night a…

This Is… Nina Baker

The delightful sounds of Nina Baker hit my inbox quite some time ago now and I’ve been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to get this interview out there to you. Unfortunately there was a minor hindrance which caused a substantial delay but thankfully Nina is now absolutely fine and is returning to music as though nothing ever happened…
