Vogon Poetry “Life, The Universe And Everything” – album review

  The third full length Vogon Poetry’s album Life, The Universe And Everything was officially released on 20 April 2018. While The Perfect Stories merged the 80s influences with the band’s vision of synth pop and electropop, this album shows their opinion on electropop genre; the album sounds more futuristic than nostalgic. The catchy melodies, danceable beats and exceptional vocals of John Andersson make their music appealing to the wide audience. They are poppy and…

VOWWS “Under The World” – album review

  After hearing VOWWS’ debut album The Great Sun, I became a fan of their distinguishable sound which instantly piqued my interest. It is rather difficult to stay up to date with new releases and it often seems that the music sky has become overcrowded with emerging stars. However, VOWWS undoubtedly deserve to be placed among the best new pop acts. There’s clearly more to their pop than just pop. It’s twisted, dark, gloomy at…

Chris Connelly “The Tide Stripped Bare” – album review

  Chris Connelly released his 20th solo album on Armalyte Records in February 2018. Mr. Connelly doesn’t need a special introduction; his great music career and opus speak volumes. Many of us associate Connelly with Ministry, Pigface, Revolting Cocks, Finitribe, etc. However, Connelly has always been an inspired song writer who explored the possibilities and different angles and approaches to artistic expression. I started listening to the album completely unbiased; I let the music speak…

Actors “It Will Come to You” – album review

  The Canadian post-punk act Actors have just released their debut full-lenght album It Will Come to You. Although Actors rely on the post-punk and new-wave influences, their approach to the genres comes with the modern twist, which can be heard right from the start.

Soft Riot “The Outsider In The Mirrors” – album review

  Soft Riot’s sixth studio album The Outsider In The Mirrors has just been officially released. I rushed to check out what JJD, the man behind the project, has for us in 2018. The album is a collection of eight outstanding electronic music tunes. But that’s far from the accurate description. It’s not so easy to pinpoint Jack’s music expression. Although his work undoubtedly reflects post-punk, new-wave, synth-pop influences, Soft Riot delivers the ideas in…
