It's not all about music anymore...



La Femme – Sur La Planche

I’ve been meaning to write about this band for over a year now – and even more so since I caught La Femme‘s set at Horatio’s Bar in Brighton during The Great Escape this year. Ending a run of UK… Continue Reading →

Mikal Cronin – Apathy

Some proper indie psych-pop rockness (ahem!) after the soulful digression – it’s Californian Mikal Cronin accompanied by an artist I’ve been trying to see live for months, and finally am in November, Ty Segall, on drums: Mikal Cronin – Apathy… Continue Reading →
