Track: Kanye West – Real Friends

Kanye West ‘Real Friends’ – Any argument, the media’ll extend it How many of us are real friends? It’s a question that millions of Facebook users (myself included) ask themselves when the stream of funny videos and GIFs give way to a mind numbing succession of vanity status updates.  After all, do we really care about the pictures of a distant…



Used: Cymbals Eat Guitars – Aerobed

The singing whisper of my piss on porcelain When an important friendship is pushed beyond breaking point the fallout can be unbearable and it’s the theme that sits behind this one off single by Cymbals Eat Guitars. Produced by Brand New frontman Jesse Lacy, the track is a brutally honest ode to the reasons that…


Twerps – I Don’t Mind

This sleepy slice of Slacker-Indie feels like the shrugged answer to a bunch of humdrum questions; what shall we have for dinner tonight? Where are we going for drinks on Friday?

Foals – What Went Down

Miguel – Coffee

Pick a star in the sky, we’ll both say goodbye No matter how many times I listen to Coffee by Miguel, I can’t help shake the feeling that it’s the Millennial successor to Spandau Ballets [in]famous track True, which I know sounds weird but let me explain. A while back I remembering reading a piece in the…


HEALTH – Stonefist!

And we both know, love’s not in our hearts! It’s probably down to my own love of the three and half minute pop song but Industrial isn’t really a type of music that I’m mega into. Like most music fans I’ve dipped my toe into the sound palette through it’s most notable artists – Throbbing Gristle and Nine…
