Megaton Leviathan – Past 21 Beyond The Arctic Cell

Megaton Leviathan have created a nightmarish vision but one filled with enough beautiful moments that you will want to keep on returning. – By Martyn Coppack

Anjou – Anjou

Anjou – Anjou

Those expecting something remotely like Labradford might be disappointed with this effort, but those open to a wholly new and creative project from some of Post-rock’s most inventive musicians will find ‘Anjou’ a very special musical experience. By Gareth Watkins

Zodiac – Sonic Child

Zodiac – Sonic Child

Keeping it simple is often the best policy. As Swedish rockers Zodiac demonstrate in ample quantities on third album Sonic Child by sticking to the tried and tested formula of whisky soaked 70’s and 80’s hard rock. – By Andrew Rawlinson

Antethic – Origin

Antethic – Origin

A dependable post-rock production that might not stand out from the crowd but contains moments of brilliance. By Ginnia Cheng

Biscuit Mouth – Doing it Right and Doing it Well

Biscuit Mouth – Doing it Right and Doing it Well

Doing it Right and Doing it Well is a short-lived burst of dark, acrimonious noise that doesn’t let up once throughout its running length. Relying only on drums, vocals, and a 3 string hybrid bass/guitar the two piece merge noisy blues riffs with math rock rhythms to produce a wholly distinct sound; landing sonically somewhere between The Jesus Lizard and Bitch Magnet. By Charlie Floyd

Liverpool Psych Fest 2014 Preview – White Hills

Liverpool Psych Fest 2014 Preview – White Hills

“Psychedelic music should reflect what a psychedelic trip is like. It takes you to furthest reaches of the universe and to the deepest darkest places within your soul. It’s beautiful and ugly, comforting and uncomfortable all at the same time.” – Martyn Coppack talks to Dave White from White Hills

Liquido Di Morte – Liquido Di Morte

Liquido Di Morte – Liquido Di Morte

It’s difficult not to like Liquido Di Morte. Their music is surprisingly accessible given the nature of it and it will be interesting to see where they take their sound next. – By Martyn Coppack

Less Than Nothing – It Will Set You Free

Less Than Nothing – It Will Set You Free

I can tell that Less Than Nothing will be immensely proud of this record, I know they will have invested a lot of time and effort in making it. For that, they are to be commended, so at this stage I struggle to be overtly critical. It’s early days for Less Than Nothing, but everyone’s got to start somewhere, right? I’ll wager album number two will be something entirely different. By Geoff Topley

Bölzer – Soma

Bölzer – Soma

Soma is soul-lifting and empowering despite its darkness, majestic without being snooty or flowery, and, above all, incredibly well-written and performed. – By John McLaughlin

Ilenkus – The Crossing

Ilenkus – The Crossing

What Ilenkus delivers is a complex album that requires time to be fully understood and appreciated but it really deserves your time and your attention. Open your mind and adventure into The Crossing. You’ll be rewarded. By Daniela Patrizi

Black Moth – Condemned To Hope

Black Moth – Condemned To Hope

Black Moth are an up-and-coming, force to be reckoned with at the head of a new generation in English rock music… and that is EXCELLENT!!! – By Jake Murray

Live Review: Knifeworld at The Lexington, London. 5th September, 2014

Live Review: Knifeworld at The Lexington, London. 5th September, 2014

“It is genuinely thrilling to watch – a seminal Canterbury-scene outfit with the whimsy sucked out and replaced by bile and laudanum.” by Chris McGarel

Aidan Baker/Thisquietarmy – Hypnodrone Ensemble

Aidan Baker/Thisquietarmy – Hypnodrone Ensemble

Hypnodrone Ensemble is atmospheric and will certainly conquer from the very first note. It has a lack of profundity though and if there were deep moments this already impressive album would be stellar. By Daniela Patrizi

Ragweed – Parerga

Ragweed – Parerga

Parerga is certainly loud and aggressive but more than just power and velocity; the songs are carefully crafted and executed, and often insidiously melodic. By Aidan Hehir
