Paul Jacks – ‘Too Emotional’

It’s not often we get to review the music of artists from Alaska. We’ve written about Paul Jacks before, who comes to us from Anchorage, the capital, whose long, bone-shatteringly cold winters, and closeness to active volcanos, make it a place highly likely to stir up creativity in even the most frozen of hearts.

Matt Shapiro – ‘Rockaway Girl’

With a sound that comes somewhere between Gary Numan and Don Henley – imagine ‘Boys Of Summer’ but done with synths and lo-fi – Matt Shapiro’s song, ‘Rockaway Girl’, is the first track from his new EP, ‘FADE IN’, set for release on March 8.

Paul Jacks – ‘Laid To Rest’

Anchorage Alaska is a long way from anywhere, and its very isolation, as well as its long winters, and sheer beauty, work together for the good of artists such as Paul Jacks.

If you follow Neil Arthur on Instagram you’ll be familar with his posts where he photographs an obscure object and asks his followers what it’s a picture of – mostly with the caption, “Ask the family?”.

Tim Muddiman & The Strange’s Second Album ‘Domino Blitz’ Is Gloriously Grungy Rock

The new album from Tim Muddiman & The Strange, ‘Domino Blitz’ feels like it draws something from Bowie’s ‘Diamond Dogs’. There’s a distinctly dystopian vibe to the twelve track record, the follow up to Tim’s 2016 debut, ‘Paradise Runs Deeper’. It’s dark and deep, and moody, but it’s what you might expect from Muddiman if you’re familiar with his previous releases.

EP Speaks To LA Band Nightmare Air About ‘Fade Out’, Gary Numan, And Life In General

Nightmare Air comprises Dave Dupuis, Swaan Miller, and Jimmy Lucido. The trio are based in Los Angeles and shred up the stage with guitars, drums, and “meticulously layered boy-girl harmonies”. Their studio albums are sublime, their stage performances even more so. Not quite shoegaze, not quite full blown rock, the band’s music is possibly best described as “shoegaze with a rocky edge”.

Gary Numan Holds Court In A Dystopian World At Dublin’s Olympia Theatre 29 March 2018

A long time ago Gary Numan asked ‘Are ‘Friends’ Electric’. At the Olympia Theatre in Dublin on 29 March it wasn’t exactly a gathering of friends, but by the end of the evening we all felt we knew each other, so it may as well have been; and the atmosphere was most definitely electric.
