White Room – Take Me Away

Alright lads, settle down now – you’ve already got my attention, no need to flip out this far to try and pull me in further. I’m already going to fork out whatever it takes to get me all your tunes stored neatly on my shelf. I guess what I’m trying to say is… OI! White Room!…

The Boxing – One by One

The first 30 seconds of this new(wish) tune from The Boxing had me thinking this was what ‘My Generation‘ would have sounded like if The Who had taken acid just a few years earlier. Instead, it filters out into a ridiculous blend of waves child guitars combined bizarrely with a thundering bass that Mr Entwistle himself would…

Thyla – Ferris Wheels

Cloves – California Numb

All the leaves aren’t yet brown and the skies are far from grey, but somehow I’m still dreaming of California and it’s probably all Cloves fault. I’m not giving her any hassle for it, it’s more a nuisance that I keep moving my neck like I’m a right bundle of sass because of her cracking new tune.…
