SAYONNE ft. K-Starr – ‘6 (Ignited)’ And ‘2 Worlds (Remember)’

Sayonne’s Caribbean infused RnB is a hot and festive party starter; deeply personal, and at the same time, beautifully graceful. Her voice evokes both the beaches of Trinidad, and the clubs of Los Angeles. All of this is amply demonstrated in her singles, ‘6 (Ignited)’, and ‘2 Worlds (Remember)’.

Biting Elbows Give Us What We Want With ‘Heartache’ And ‘Control’

It’s an interesting name, Biting Elbows. We thought that last year when we introduced the Moscow-based band to our readers: our opinion hasn’t changed. We’re pleased to bring two more songs from the indie band whose music is notable for its dark undertones – ‘Heartache’, and ‘Control’. Naturally, there’s videos as well.

Unintended Strangers Meet Across The Internet And Make Beautiful Music Together With Cross World Collaboration

The Internet has definitely taken a hold of most of our lives, and ultimately it’s up to us to decide if we’re going to let it rule our lives, or embrace it and let it work for us. The latter is certainly the case for Unintended Strangers, an indie/folk duo comprising Robert Griffin in the US, and Chloe Danz, of New Zealand, who after a chance meeting online back in November 2017 decided to join forces as a musical project.

Dan Says – Week Eleven

Not gonna lie; its been quite a low key week for me. I’ve currently saving super hard for my trip to Baltimore next month among other exciting things but it really has got me thinking about things happening. I realised that unless the occasion involves alcohol I’m often not partial to attendance. I spent Thursday & Friday drinking away at the local pub; drinking the night away with colleagues and smoking just a little too much. We’ll look back on these occasions with such fondness, even if they do end with myself jumping into the back of a cab enroute to a hook up I 100% should not be pursuing.

Dan Says – Week Nine

Brunch has got to be one of my favourite occasions of the week…kicking back with an avocado based something and an unusual coloured drink… that’s exactly what I had at the wonderful Melange Restaurants in Crouch End.

10cc/Godley & Creme Legend Kevin Godley Creates New Videos For 10cc Concerts

Is this a 10cc reunion? Well, sort of…. Former band member and legendary director Kevin Godley has created 2 new videos for Graham Gouldman’s touring version of 10cc. This is not the first time the two founding band members have collaborated. Godley and Gouldman created some fascinating new music back in 2006 under the guise GG/06, in which the track used for one of the videos “Son of Man” was created.

Mike Shinoda’s ‘Post Traumatic’ Is A Sad Album Yet Serves As A Catharsis For Linkin Park Fans As Much As For Him

‘Post Traumatic’ by Mike Shinoda, is a sad album. There’s no getting past it. Written in the shadow of the suicide of his friend and Linkin Park bandmate, Chester Bennington, Shinoda uses the deeply personal album as a catharsis to work through his feelings. The 16 track full length album follows on from the EP of the same name, released in January this year.
