It's not all about music anymore...



Esben and the Witch

A bit of spooky atmospheric for you – I think the word may be… “gothic”? I first came across this band clicking through an NME blog post and have since found out they’ve been the support for The XX –… Continue Reading →


We’re going with trip-hop today…a dark and twisty antidote to the beautiful sunny day for any vampires among us ;) Portishead – Numb – from their 1994 release of the same name, it doesn’t get much more trippy than this…. Continue Reading →
