Emily Wells – Passenger

Mind. Blown. Just had to get that out there before I go into any detail about last night’s performance from Emily Wells at The Lexington. I’d listened to her 2012 album, Mama (Partisan Records), a few times before the show,… Continue Reading →

Night Engine – I’ll Make It Worth Your While

Listen to this song, and let me know which legendary artist with a career spanning 5 decades as a renowned innovator and musical pioneer comes to mind: Night Engine – I’ll Make It Worth Your While When I heard this,… Continue Reading →

Hannah Cohen – The Crying Game

“Hannah Cohen is an American singer-songwriter”, says Google. Factual, yes, but doesn’t even come close to doing her justice. The first words that come to mind on hearing her voice are, for me, delicate, vulnerable, sincere, tentative – as though she’s fearful of even… Continue Reading →

It wouldn’t be a fair representation of my musical year if I let 2012 close without posting this song. It appears in my top 10 tracks by plays over the last 12 months on last.fm – though the chart says… Continue Reading →

Chelsea Wolfe – The Way We Used To

Confession time – I discovered Chelsea Wolfe through Ricall. She’s one of their Ones to Watch for 2013 and actually my favourite of the lot. Musically, she reminds me of one of my favourite artists and most memorable live artists… Continue Reading →

Tame Impala – Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

Some psychedelic surf-rock daydreaming music to wile away the post-Christmas turkey-stuffed lethargy. This is “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” from Perth-originated Australians, Tame Impala: Tame Impala – Feels Like We Only Go Backwards The track is from their second album, Lonerism,… Continue Reading →
