Jake & The Jellyfish - Dead Weight

Album Review: Jake & The Jellyfish – Dead Weight

The last album from Jake & The Jellyfish, 2013’s Credit Cards & Overdrafts, was in one word; brilliant. With a debut that strong it’s hard to see how a band could progress more. However, after what I assume is a lot of hard work, Jake & The Jellyfish have gone next level. Dead Weight is a finely […]

Live Review: Clear Your Throat festival #2 (Nottingham, 14/03/15)

Nottingham’s Clear Your Throat festival came back around pretty quickly. Seven months after the first, The Chameleon in the city centre was once again host to the eclectic all-dayer.

Corporate Hearts have contributed an article for our website before, about their local scene in Philadelphia. They’re lucky to be a part of such an amazing music scene which is responsible for building many of the best-known bands in the genre. Their music is pretty great too. After a couple of releases here and there, their […]

Album Review: Happy Diving – Big World

Nowadays, I almost immediately trust anything associated with the label Art is Hard Records. I’ve picked up a few items here and there from them, and they’ve put on some pretty great shows in Brighton, where I live. My purchase of Happy Diving’s Big World has yet to tarnish that blissful perspective. The album is […]
