Erasure “The Neon” – album review

Erasure “The Neon” – album review

  Some groups are full of brightness and light and Erasure are one of these groups. Since the birth of the group in the 1980’s the duo have perpetually been producing wonderful catchy pop music that is still fresh to listen to in the millennium years. What’s more they refuse to hide in the shadows, they keep coming back with fresh upbeat music with their distinct signature sound. Andy Bell’s voice is still as strong…

God Module “The Unsound Remixes” – album review

  Founded in Florida back in 2003, God Module has been the solo project of Jasyn Bangert for some time now. Nine studio albums and a number of EPs, he has brought the sounds of industrial, harsh techno and darkwave to create a constantly mutating sound.

I Like Trains “Kompromat” – album review

I Like Trains “Kompromat” – album review

  I have recently been introduced to I Like Trains and after hearing ‘The Truth’ on Bandcamp and the musical style, I recognised immediately was the irony and wit this group have. My first feeling was that they were similar to the Divine Comedy. Not being familiar with the vocalist David Martin, I thought I was going to hear singing, but there are some that do a terrific job with spoken word and the way…

Jean-Marc Lederman Experience “Letters To Gods (and fallen angels)” – album review

  An ingenious concept album composing of 22 Letters in music! Imagine that the human race has become extinct and that all that is left are these remnants to disclose who we were. Each of the 22 tracks sung by different artists. Their interpretation has put a unique take on the task that was given to them to create a very rich and full album with empathy and love. This is a lovely mixture of…

John Carpenter “Skeleton” – single review

John Carpenter “Skeleton” – single review

  It’s always good to see how John Carpenter plays his scores. He demonstrates so easily how to create a sinister sound and get a vibe. ‘Skeleton’ is certainly no different to his previous work but with a hint of something else. He has a formula to set the heart race pounding. In some ways this piece of music is simple but so effective. It’s lively and full of zest. It has a jumpy feel…

The Joy Thieves “Genocide Love Song” – single review

  Hot on the heels of their second release, A Blue Girl, The Joy Thieves have graced us with the Genocide Love Song EP. The blistering title track features long-standing Joy Thief, industrial music legend, and master of prose…the ever versatile Chris Connelly on vocals. In a dynamic adrenaline rush of a promo video, he stands in a room and unabashedly screams the refrain “Mandated fucklord” into the camera right into our faces, making pretty…

Caleb Landry Jones “The Mother Stone” – album review

  The X-Men and Twin Peaks actor Caleb Landry Jones has just released a truly fascinating debut album The Mother Stone. The opening track ‘Flag Day / The Mother stone’ introduces the listener to the experimentation and rebelliousness which underpins the album. The equally artistic music video for this track welcomes us with a fusion of the creepy and the creative, visually reinforcing the album’s cover and encouraging the listener to soak in this mixture…

Interview: Adam Klopp talks about “Gathering Swans” and Choir Boy

  Following their debut album Passive With Desire from 2016, Choir Boy are back this year with a new full length album Gathering Swans. Gathering Swans shows the band’s creative evolution, both lyrically and music wise. There have been changes in the line-up as well, which resulted in a superior release. Even though the feelings of melancholy and nostalgia are present throughout the album, I feel extremely positive and absolutely passionate about it. With the…

Empathy Test “Monsters” – album review

Empathy Test “Monsters” – album review

  London based electro pop group Empathy Test are known for their experimentation with electronic repertoires and emotional representation. Since forming in 2013 the group have been turning heads and ears with their bold, somnolent sound, and Monsters doesn’t disappoint. Their third album brings a darker edge to their music, a sound which shies away from the major and relaxed feel of their previous releases ‘Losing Touch’ and ‘Safe From Harm’.  Oliver Marson’s nostalgic choice…
