T8PES – T8PES (Review)

T8PES is no stranger to MoggBlog after I reviewed his single “Hope & Pray” back in March of this year. Now returning with his first full feature length, the Birmingham based artist is causing a movement within the area. Mixing an alternative take on electronica but flavoured with a good dose of hip hop, Jimmy… Continue reading T8PES – T8PES (Review)

Phil Matthews (The Village) – Carnival of Fools (Review)

Phil Matthews aka The Village released his Carnival of Fools album back in 2017. With elements of traditional folk music and americana, Phil has built up a fan base around the Midlands. With influences from The Beatles to the Beach Boys, The Village's music is known to be a magical place for outsiders and oddballs. The album features tracks, "The Secret Garden" which he wrote in… Continue reading Phil Matthews (The Village) – Carnival of Fools (Review)

2018 EPs/Albums

Jack White – Boarding House Reach (Review)

The man, the myth and the legend is back with a killer third studio album since The White Stripes departed and in my absolute opinion, it's his best release since, with Lazaretto being a close second. In Boarding House Reach, we get to see Jack White in a completely different light. He's comfortable making this music and his has found a lot of… Continue reading Jack White – Boarding House Reach (Review)

1970 Albums, Classic Album Review

Pink Floyd – Animals (Classic Album Review)

"Animals" is a concept album that gives us a thought of what life was like in the 1970's with politics being a main part of everyone's life. It's the 10th studio album by the iconic rock band that is "Pink Floyd". It's also one of the most progressive albums that they made with the concept behind it… Continue reading Pink Floyd – Animals (Classic Album Review)

Released on November 3rd 2017 through Ruf Records and produced by Luther Dickinson, this is Samantha Fish's second album of 2017. Samantha has risen through the years and is now one of the main faces of modern blues music.

Kate Bush – Hounds of Love (Classic Album Review)

She is known for her distinctive voice and extraordinary compositions, but Kate Bush is still a lot more than that. She is the Queen of Art Pop/Rock, in my eyes. I decided to write a "classic album review" for the first time, and what better than reviewing one of Bush's masterpieces; "Hounds of Love." It is… Continue reading Kate Bush – Hounds of Love (Classic Album Review)

Nai Palm – Needle Paw (Review)

The sassy goddess that is Nai Palm, front-woman of the "Neo-Soul" band "Hiatus Kaiyote", has released her debut solo album. She released it back in October 2017, and I'm finally getting round to sitting down and reviewing it. I've been a huge fan of Hiatus Kaiyote since they were just getting "noticed". After seeing them at… Continue reading Nai Palm – Needle Paw (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. It's personal and takes a big step into Annie Clark's life. Annie Clark is St Vincent. She has been using a stage name since 2006 and everybody now knows her for this. I find it very interesting when… Continue reading St Vincent – Masseduction (Review)

Robert Plant – Carry Fire (Review)

The Golden God himself is back with a stunning new album. His first solo album in three years, "Carry Fire" is raw and rhythmically oozing with influences. With help from his backing band "The Sensational Space Shifters" who are sensational, if I do say so myself (no pun intended), they create a well produced album produced… Continue reading Robert Plant – Carry Fire (Review)

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard – Polygondwanaland (Review)

Well, that's a word you wouldn't be able to say while drunk... King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard are back after not releasing music in three months (that's actually a long time in King Gizzard world...) Polygondwanaland is a mouthful, but physically and mentally, it's some of King Gizzard's best work. With already releasing three albums this year,… Continue reading King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard – Polygondwanaland (Review)
