Office Mad Ting: Socrates X Micachu

At the end of 2009, up popped a video on Youtube and, frankly, it was the best video-song combo of the year. ‘Fine’ was a collab between wonky pop genius Micachu and grime boys Brother May and Baker Trouble: a filthy, addictive, raging track that’s all impossible scuzzy guitar riffs …

Meet our BOTW: Tirzah

Under The Skin OST composer Mica(chu) Levi and her bffl Tirzah have been making beats since secondary school. It’s no surprise, then, how tight they sound on the latter’s brilliant ‘No Romance’ EP, released last week. Still very much a side-project for Tirzah (musicians do have day-jobs, you know), her

Welcome to The NOFAYs 2013: The Notion Office’s Favourite (note: not ‘Best’) Albums of the Year, our take on the now-ubiquitous end-of-year list.

Musogyny: Should We Rate Sexism in Music Videos?

BOTW Playlist: FEMME’s 10 Girls on Top in 2013

From Miley Cyrus’ year-long twerkfest to Lily Allen’s divisive ‘Hard Out Here‘ video, it’s hard to remember a year quite like 2013 where there’s been such discussion over gender and sexuality in music. If there’s one thing that’s resulted from 2013 though, it’s been a veritable Aladdin’s Cave …

EP Review: DELS – Black Salad

I first came across DELS (Kieren Dickins) when listening to the Queens Of Noize‘s now defunct 6Music radio show – something that tuned into religiously, to feed all my indie, up’n’coming music hunger. And, in this particular case, something to recommend me a bit of the UK underground scene …

Album Review: Micachu – Never

Micachu is about as close to experimental as it gets. In a world where the worldwide music chart is awash with the same Guetta-branded pre-programmed synth beats and the same will.i.am-famous “breakdowns”, it’s a massive relief to listen to a record that throws the majority of current pop music rules …

BOTW Mixtape: Kwesachu Vol. 2
