Introducing: Max Marshall

At just 21 years-old Max Marshall has already established a successful career in fashion. When she isn’t creating 1940s-inspired bespoke clothing, making wigs for Lady Gaga or working for French designer Charlie Le Mindu, Marshall turns to her other passion, music.

Writing music since 14, the Baltimore-born-London-based multi-instrumentalist has …

TORCHES9

Songs for the Week #3

Torches – Sky Blue & Ivory
This is Torches’ debut single but you’d never guess. They have seemingly arrived fully formed, enveloping you in their gothically menacing and ominous brand of rock and creating a sparse and intriguing sound. Frontman Charlie Drinkwater’s baritone vocals are front and centre and through …

Album Review: Roots Manuva – ’4everevolution’

The highly acclaimed Roots Manuva is back. His heavy-hitting lyrical rap combines once again with effective production and simple beats that allow emphasis on his vocals and trademark backdrops of warped sound.

‘Revelation’ stood out as a highlight track for me. Manuva’s traditional heavy backing and powerful lyrics are met …

New Single and Download from Caged Animal

The single was a shimmering melodic release and many might have jumped to unwarranted conclusions that this band was going to be a light dose of indie-rock.

Album Review: Bombay Bicycle Club- ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’

Most bands are afraid to drift from their signature style that earned them a loyal fan base to begin with, churning out album after album that eventually merges into years of same-sounding songs that eventually gets, well, boring. I don’t blame them, however, for being wary of trying something new …

Album Review: Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
