Review: Tusks – False

Review: Tusks – False

Find comfort for your broken heart in Tusks’ latest EP False. Drenched in intense emotion and vulnerability, False is the latest EP from Emily Underhill, following up 2014’s self-produced debut Ink. ‘For You’ starts with mournful pianos and clicking percussion that almost sounds like heavy raindrops, creating a sense of...

Review: Jon Bellion – The Human Condition

Review: Jon Bellion – The Human Condition

If you don’t think you’ve heard of Jon Bellion yet, you will have heard his music. He wrote the chorus for Eminem and Rihanna’s 2013 hit ‘The Monster’ and co-wrote and produced Jason Derulo’s 2014 ‘Trumpets’. This will have given Bellion a hefty bank balance, enabling him to concentrate on...

Review: Låpsley – Long Way Home

Holly ‘Låpsley’ Fletcher first left an impression on me with her vocals and production on ‘Station’ and ‘Painter’. With funding from PRS for Music Foundation she has been able to develop her minimal but stunning electronic production, vocal experimentation and live setup. ‘Station’ is delicate and emotionally powerful.

Review: Erykah Badu – But You Caint Use My Phone

Phones are undeniably everywhere, so much so that they’ve become inspiration for many songwriters. Of course, this is nothing new; music’s relationship with the telephone has been a long affair. From Electric Light Orchestra’s ‘Telephone Line’, Blondie’s ‘Call Me’ and Stevie Wonder’s ‘I Just Called To Say I Love You’...

Review: Redlight – X colour

Review: Redlight – X colour

If you’ve ever liked raving and misbehaving (post 1999) then you will probably have heard of Redlight. Known as a producer of quirky club music, the Bristol-raised, London-based producer has stepped away from his previous sound to deliver a bassline driven debut album: X Colour. The album is full of...
