Sunderfeet – ‘Nightmare For Myself’.

Sunderfeet – Strasbourg, France. Now, that might not be the best album cover artwork you’ve seen this week but it being from a band that describe themselves as a ‘Stoner-Grunge-Power-Trio’, you suddenly let it off the hook and even condone it. It’s always better not to be boring after all. Nightmare For...

Fresh Picks: Kill The Drama Queen.

Kill The Drama Queen – Luxembourg/France/Belgium. Fresh Picks are designed to give readers all the reasons they will need to indulge in whatever facet of underground music we come across, a short – ish – take on a band or artist to entice the prospective listener with enough name-drops, genre-tags...

Quit Yr Job At The Nest – 19/10/17: A Showcase.

The Nest – Bath, England, United Kingdom. Quit Yr Job Records are another one of those fledgling labels slowly but surely making their way around the monotonous routine of modern life in order to collect bands. Collecting said bands is seemingly a slow process but with the output this little...

Manhattan Project – ‘Pistol Head // Deep In The Ground’.

Manhattan Project – Leeds, England, United Kingdom. Photo credit (above): Vision Photography. From what I can gather from my seat in the south-west, the music scene in Leeds is vibrant and alive and likely various other cliche terms used in short and snappy newspaper reviews. In short and in less...

Fresh Picks: Lagoons.

Lagoons – Leeds, England, United Kingdom. Cover photo credit: Maddy Bright. Citing their genre-locale as somewhere between Grunge and Emo, Lagoons hail from Leeds which to my knowledge is nowhere near any of their idyllic namesakes but then again, I only got a C in Geography. To date the band...

DOT – ‘DOT’.

DOT – Toulouse/Bath, France/United Kingdom. Cover photo credit: Imag’in Live – Click Here. The two-piece band dynamic is somewhat popular these days with big names such as Royal Blood, Slaves, Sleaford Mods etc… garnering the majority of the popularity and credit to the formula and fair play to them. However, it...

Fresh Picks: Malfunc Prism.

Malfunc Prism – Freiburg, Germany. The cover photo used is very fitting for a band who can’t decide how to describe themselves or who are further confused by those who try to describe them. Malfunc Prism of Freiburg have been compared to the likes of Pearl Jam, The Distillers, Deftones,...

wych elm – ‘School Shooter/Bag Of Worms’ – 16/9/17.

wych elm – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. wych elm are a (now) four-piece from Bristol and the latest to be snapped but my emerging local label Quit Yr Job Records as they very much quest around Bristol and Bath digging-up the best in underground Alternative music and with the dreary...

Brain Ape Return With ‘Auslander’.

Brain Ape – London, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. Photography credit – Gregory Hesse-Wagner. Ah, Brain Ape. A strange band from London with revolving members quite literally in and out of humanity. For now the three-piece are to be believed wholly human although many...

Underwing and The Debut ‘Kaela Upsweep’.

Underwing – Arendal, Norway. Cover photo credit: Jasmin Moriko. ‘Progressive Grunge’ is a term I hadn’t heard until I received a review request from Norway’s Underwing. To understand this I would say try to envision a concoction of vintage Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Audioslave, Pearl Jam and Tool. This was...
