Mo Kenney is releasing her new single On The Roof, which comes from her third and most personal album, The Details, as well as announcing February UK live dates! Mo has released two records with long-time producer and Canadian rock mentor Joel Plaskett since 2012. With her third album, Mo comes fully and completely into her own as an artist; she swaps her trademark acoustic guitar for a Fender Mustang, tracing her own strange, devastating, and ultimately hopeful trip through the trials and tribulations of booze-fuelled breakdowns, clouds of depression, and disintegrating relationships. Mo Kenney has said “I began...

Will Varley Seven Days Video, New Album & Tour.

Seven Days is from Will Varley’s new single taken from his forthcoming album Spirit Of Minnie which is released on 9th Feb. Will wrote Seven Days in acknowledgement of those fleeting milestone moments in life that we let slip by us. He’s single-handedly created this tender new monochrome pixel art animation which accompanies the track, inspired by the classic 8-bit dos games of Will’s own 90s childhood. The video is a simplicity itself and very charming when accompanied by Will’s lyrics with his usual ability to tell a story. This results in a perfect match for what is quite...

Placebo, 20 Years Strong

21 years ago, an unassuming alt-rock trio brought their teenage angst to the forefront of rock music with a blistering debut record, which took flight in 1997 with the release of fifth single Nancy Boy, catapulting the outsiders to the top 5 in the UK singles charts, a similar feat achieved with their eponymous debut. But if, like me, you also picked up both copies of each of Placebo’s singles, you were exposed to an even richer extension to that debut with incredible tunes such as covers of Syd Barrett’s Dark Globe and The Smiths’ Bigmouth Strikes Again alongside...

Weezer, The Pacific Daydreamers Return

L.A. rockers Weezer have announced their eleventh studio album Pacific Daydream on Crush Music/Atlantic Records due out on October 27th.

Kelsea Ballerini, Busting out of Knoxville

It’s official, Country Music is the new Pop Music. With act after act seemingly emerging from nowhere and breaking onto the Nashville scene which is progressively extending not just across the US but across the pond to the UK, this is quickly becoming a crowded market. But Kelsea Ballerini isn’t worried, and we should take note as the Knoxville, Tennessee native prepares for the release of sophomore studio album Unapologetically. Unapologetically follows her blow-away debut record The First Time, released in 2015, which went on to become certified Gold and spawned four hit singles including Platinum-certified singles Love Me...

Third Eye Blind, US Summer Gods Head to The UK

There are some amazing records that defined the 1990s turning 20 in 2017, from Radiohead’s seminal OK Computer, Foo Fighters’ legendary The Colour And The Shape and The Prodigy’s The Fat Of The Land to Sarah McLachlan’s Surfacing and Natalie Imbruglia’s Left Of The Middle. But one record that pumped out summer hit after summer hit for a solid year, in the US at least, was San Franciscan alt. rock outfit Third Eye Blind’s self-titled debut. The Stephen Jenkins-fronted five-piece put out Third Eye Blind in April 1997 and followed it up with five massive singles, kicking off with...

LIVE: Blink-182 @ O2 Arena, London. Whats My Age Again?

Recently one of my Facebook friends posted an article about the appropriate age when you should stop clubbing. In wider context the appropriate age when you should abandon the dance floor or concert hall for the benefit of early nights in with kids and pyjamas. The magic age revealed by a new study which polled 5,000 Britons was 37. That is  when you are “officially” too old for gigs and parties. So here I am, another night at the O2 Arena, excited as a teenage girl, ready to go and photograph the band I love. What’s my age again?...
