EP Review: Best Coast – Fade Away

It’s been a year since California’s favourite revivalist duo Best Coast released their second album, The Only Place.  Their new seven-track EP, Fade Away, featuring lead single ‘I Don’t Know’, shows Bethany Cosentino and multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno carrying on perfectly complimenting one another lyrically and sonically.

Opener ‘This …



BOTW Interview: Guards

With their debut album, In Guards We Trust, leaving us shouting along gloriously to the heavens, we just had to have a chinwag with Manhattan threesome, Guards. Here, the trio tell us about their Coachella 2013 experience, dream festival line-ups, and their plans to tour the world.




Album Review: Bleached – Ride Your Heart

Not long ago, I was in a bar watching – and this is not hyperbole – the worst covers band in the world. The clammy lead singer systemically crucified tracks from the last half of the 20th Century. The crowd were either too polite, or too pissed, to consider hurling …

N57 Test Driving: Best Coast – The Only Place

A stars-and-stripes collagen plumps the bikini-clad body of Best Coast’s music like a botoxed slab of Blackpool rock. Such lo fi stupidity fills 32 vacuous minutes with headless bambi-crap that’s backward even for the picket-fence pout that surrounds its plastic ‘50s context. Coincidentally ‘The Only Place’ with its titular …



BOTW: The Go! Team- ‘Rolling Blackouts’ Review

Judging from the genre-defying sensibility of Brighton’s The Go! Team as a whole, as well as the incredibly obscure samples used by Panton on most of the band’s releases, it’s evident that he would never create an album with one or two conventional “hits” that stand out like a sore …



Interview with BOTW: The Go! Team’s Ian Parton

As our BOTW merriment continues for yet another day, Tim Robins got in touch with The Go! Team’s main man Ian Parton via email on the cusp of the band’s first UK tour in almost 3 years. Can we get a rewind?

PN: Over the 7 years since the release



Introducing our BOTW: The Go! Team

Whereas many of the bands featured as our Band of the Week are relative newcomers to the British music scene, hailing from foreign climes with delightfully different cultural reference points, there is always room for an old favourite to be thrown into the mix.

Although The Go! Team have been …
