Fontaines D.C at NME

The Irish troubadours come good on a debut album that offers both a storyteller’s narrative voice and a snarling new vision of youthful disillusionment.

This prolific and much-loved indie-rock band bashed out an impressive sweat-soaked two-hour set of short but sweet punky songs

Drahla at The Guardian

DRAHLA 6.1.193007.jpg

Drahla review at The Guardian

...scratchy-yet-melodious chord progressions, riffs more jagged than a mountain range, mean basslines and their singer’s hushed yet swaggering performance.

Fontaines D.C. 5* review in The Guardian

This is the kind of songwriting quality that bands can take years to reach, or never reach at all: brilliant, top to bottom.

It’s been a long time coming. With the first material written for this new record dating back two summers ago, a lot has gone into making Jaws’ third album everything it could be.

The Murder Capital featured in The Guardian

The Murder Capital are outrageously exciting live. The young Dublin quintet’s brutal art-punk rock is thrilling on the edge of terrifying: new year fireworks in a metal tent.

Marvin Gaye review in NME

Marvin Gaye

Marvin Gaye’s Your The Man was recently reviewed in NME.

The eerie parallels between 1972 and 2019 mean that this timeless, long-shelved record feels especially important...it’s a pleasure to listen to, inviting a new generation to connect with the legendary singer.
— Thomas Hobbs, NME

On the first of three nights in London the Brooklynite band were as life-affirming as we have come to expect and the energy surged from the start.

Theon Cross album ‘Fyah’ reviewed at Pitchfork.

A player in Shabaka Hutchings’ Sons of Kemet and a key figure in London’s vital jazz scene, Cross brings new energy to the tuba, an instrument long neglected in jazz and its offshoots.
