Discovery II: Jack Bowden - "Arsonist"
It takes creativity and talent to learn how to write like Kent based musician Jack Bowden . Without trying to sound too respectful, Bowden's song writing skills are
next to none for the subject matter. Flicking through his repertoire of
songs, I noticed Bow...

Track Review: Slowdive - "Star Roving" / "Sugar for the Pill"
When Slowdive announced they were releasing new music, I didn't quite know how to feel. As a monumental fan of Slowdive, new music seemed somewhat out of the question when seeing how many of today's nostalgic renaissance have stumbled. Though, who was I try...

Take Me Back: Slowdive - Crazy for You
nothing quite as addictive as Slowdive, nothing more so than their third and
'final' album  Pygmalion,  which regularly does the rounds
through my ethereal and atmospheric period of bi-monthly un-categorised music
listening. Often jumping from Slowd...
