It's all about the music....



Plum – Calluna Vulgaris

Feel-good psych rock from somewhere in the United States – this song would feel right at home in a 70s coming-of-age hallucinogenic haze… or something starring Joaquin Phoenix (!!), but the term “throwback” just doesn’t do “Calluna Vulgaris” justice. It’s… Continue Reading →

TV – The Returned (Aly, Walk With Me)

If you haven’t seen it yet – it’s one of the latest imports for British television audiences, this time from France – The Returned (“Les Revenants” – literally, “the ones who came back”). After The Killing and The Bridge it… Continue Reading →

New month, new direction – well, back to one of the old directions at least. When I was reading up about this track, I found out this is Van Pierszalowsk from Port O’Brien, a Californian folk/acoustic/indie band that Van left in… Continue Reading →

EMA – The Grey Ship

Looks like Pitchfork knew about this back in December but I just came across it on a blog recently – and her album, Past Life Martyred Saints (Spotify link) was released on Souterrain Transmissions in May of this year. She’s… Continue Reading →

Abbe May – Mammalian Locomotion

Received the album from a PR company (thank you!) and it reminded me I found this track on a blog a while back – been meaning to post it, so here it is: Getting back into the rock lately –… Continue Reading →
