With Wild Ones being their second EP, you can tell the boys of Southbank Crows really do live for the music.

Nick Harper & The Wilderness Kids – Lies! Lies! Lies! (Review)

Nick Harper has been my biggest musical influence ever since I was little. He's hands down my favourite songwriter and artist other than Mr Jeff Buckley. I've been brought up with Nick's music and also his father's music as well, Roy Harper. When I first heard that Nick was touring with a band (the Wilderness… Continue reading Nick Harper & The Wilderness Kids – Lies! Lies! Lies! (Review)

St Vincent – Masseduction (Review)

Multi instrumentalist St Vincent is back. Her fifth studio album "Masseduction" is now a very important album in St Vincent's discography.

Queens of the Stone Age – Villains (Review)

First album in three years, it's safe to say Queens of the Stone Age are back. Their music interlocks through groove rock, heavy metal and even "folk like" lyrics. Everybody knows that Josh Homme tells a great story through his lyrics. Having seem QOTSA on their "...Like Clockwork" tour and being a fan since my… Continue reading Queens of the Stone Age – Villains (Review)
