It’s been a long time since I was last at any kind of festival in person. The last one I went to was the all-dayer 10 Ten Years of Chaos […]
Already into August, and planning now begins for a number of festivals coming up. In the meantime, here are the best tracks of the past month.
The end of July (already!), and here’s this week’s new release roundup. Anyway. This post is a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a nod to […]

A sweltering week, and here’s this week’s new music to hopefully distract you a bit.
Much like two weeks ago, this post comes with discussion of death. This time, though, it was closer to home, as a drinking-and-gig buddy from London sadly passed away this […]
