Ultra Major – ‘Disaster’

‘Disaster’, by Ultra Major, harks back to those days when all you needed was a few friends, a few chords, and an earworm of a song to have a hit. There’s no gimmicks with these guys though, it’s straight up fuzzed-out rock guitars reminiscent of the 90s, the sort of thing that you listen to for years after.

Ruby Ryan – ‘Phosphenes’

‘You Could Move In’ is the debut EP from Ruby Ryan, a singer songwriter who hails from New Brunswick, New Jersey. The record is characterised by melancholy rhythms and emotionally bare tracks, no less so than ‘Phosphenes’, a straight ahead, no holds barred, exercise in doomed romantic storytelling.

Dom Rivers – ‘Playing Both Sides’

2020 is a year that has proven, and continues to prove, to be one which saps our strength and test our positivity. Every day is another day filled with headlines and news stories that in turn fill us with worry and despair. Even the most positive people find their thoughts are taking a more negative bent.

#weneedyou2020: Women Get Out The Vote – ‘We Need You’ 

Never in the history of the USA has it been more important to vote than in this year’s presidential elections. For too long people have believed that their vote doesn’t matter, but it’s simply not the case. And to help that cause, to encourage people to vote, a group of every day American women from all walks of life, have rallied together for the cause, united in the belief that even a small group can make a big difference. The single, ‘We Need You’, by Women Get Out The Vote, is a powerful protest folk-pop song, and with any luck should prove as important and memorable as the rallying cries in the 60s and 70s.

Nathaniel Bellows – ‘In The Wool’

Self-released on October 2, Nathaniel Bellows’ third album is aptly entitled, ‘Three’. The eight songs have also taken him three years to write, and started when his father’s health started to decline and then rapidly go into freefall. Bellows senior died in March last year, and although Nathaniel continued to keep writing after his father’s death, you quickly begin to see why the number means a lot to him.

We’ve been writing about Justina Valentine for years now, from the Eastern-vibed hip-hop of ‘Suga Daddy’, back in 2016, to July this year, with her singles, ‘Hide & Seek’, and ‘Just Spit It’.

Roxy Green “6 Months” Video Review

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”. These words by John Lennon ring truer today than I think they ever have before. We all had plans to do things, go somewhere, be places that other people were or were not, and then life happened. For most people, these months of unrest, upheaval, and isolation have been like nothing we’ve ever experienced before. For some, however, this kind of experience isn’t a new one.
