Sadclub - Oww, My Feelings - 2018


nice release, doesn't demand too much rather soothes your indie rock tendencies…

Julia Kent & Jean D.L. - The Great Lake Swallows - 2018


The album is an aching, ambient wonderland that ensues beauty at every turn. It was built as a whole and, indeed, should be consumed as a whole. The repetition is hypnotising, a lulling sense of calm entwined in hints of unease that flows seamlessly in and out of sleepy melodies and broken drones. Unfolding over a brief twenty-six minutes, The Great Lake Swallows cannot out-stay its welcome. Everything contained within feels necessary, each movement informing the next, a conversation between two outstanding musicians.

“There’s a place where lovers go, to cry their troubles away…”

Music For Sleep - Infinite Loops: A Song For Quiet Wednesday Nights - 2018



Tom Rimshot Dimly lit corners in an ornately decorated but empty dining room. Thick reams of curtains block off the windows, and the last strains of purple sunset bleed through the edges of the cloth. A glass ashtray sits on a white table, lined with gold floral adornments - a half-smoked cigarette still smoldering in it. The slow lines of grey billow up in the darkness and disappear into a black ceiling that may as well be the abyssal void of space.

Alison Cotton - All Is Quiet At The Ancient Theatre - 2018


A solo project in the truest sense, viola, recorder, percussion and mesmerising voice are the instruments in Alison’s orchestra as she takes the stage at the Ancient Theatre. Rich sound breaks the stillness. Drone dreams seep through sepia photographs. Nothing here now but the improvised recordings, captured on two sides of cassette tape. 

j.knife - New Hobby (2018, demo)



Oh wow another shit one I wrote 
Oh wow why don't I give up and go 
Oh wow thought it could work this time 
Oh wow letting you down’s my new hobby 

My new hobby 

Oh wow I messed up the chords again 
Oh wow my lyrics don’t feel the same 
Oh wow since when did I use the drums 
Oh wow letting you down’s my new hobby 

My new hobby 

and I don’t think about it anymore

Michael Cera - Best I Can (feat. Sharon Van Etten) - 2018


was it a dream we shared? 
or was I half awake 
once in the night you took my hand, I know you're still with me 

listen to how the trees 
tap on our windowpane 
no matter what the case may be I'll always be right here 

all I needed was your love 
I'll be with you through and through 
tell me that you love me so 
I will always do the best I can for you 

sometimes it's like a plane 
passing the golden sun 
rains wash away the afterglow 
puddles evaporate 

all I needed was your love 
I'll be with you through and through 
I know that you love me so 
I will always do the best I can for you

wished bone - cellar belly - 2018


such simplicity such melody… excellent stuff out of VT - connects me to a place where I can feel authentic expression…

Woolen Men - Post - 2018


News Paper The perfect combination of creativity and simplicity and not just another band piling on pedals to hide their boring, badly written songs. They know exactly where to rein it in and exactly where to insert a bass line, a fill, or a groovy guitar noodle to make you involuntarily air drum. Thoughtful and relatable.
