Review: Garbage – “No Gods No Masters”

After what seems like forever Garbage are finally back with their politically charged new album, No Gods No Masters. Garbage are a funny band in the sense that they’ve never conformed to one particular style or fitted any standard mould. They’ve always been true to themselves, unapologetically so, and not only is that something to …

Review: Del Amitri – “Fatal Mistakes”

For the first time since 2002, Del Amitri are back with a new album with the release of Fatal Mistakes. However, despite remaining in our hearts and in our ears over the years, is this latest release the return we’d all hoped for or does it fail to live up to the beloved legacy they’ve …

Review: Texas – “Hi”

Texas are one of the few bands who have not only stayed consistently good over the years, but who have actually improved with time, aging like a fine wine since their early days in the late 80’s. In my opinion the band’s last album, Jump On Board, is probably the best thing they’ve done so …

Review: Travis – “10 Songs”

During the late 90’s and early 00’s, Travis felt like the biggest band in the world and while the band themselves may have fallen out of public consciousness, last year saw the release of their 9th studio album, 10 Songs meaning once again I’m headed down the Travis shaped rabbit hole. The band’s previous album, …

Review: Teenage Fanclub – “Endless Arcade”

Just like most people in Scotland my age I’m sure, I was always been acutely aware of Teenage Fanclub growing up however, I will admit I’ve probably never given them enough attention over the years. I’ve dipped in and out of their music from time to time and thought they were OK but one thing …

We discussed the recent success of their debut album, Against the Wall, the thought process behind funding the album through Kickstarter and of course the upcoming tour that starts in September. However, before getting into the reason you …

Review: Marti Pellow – “Stargazer”

While he is perhaps best known as the frontman of the iconic Wet Wet Wet, Marti Pellow is back with new music and his latest solo album, Stargazer however, what I think most people don’t seem to realise about Marti Pellow is that he’s actually released more material on his own at this point in …

Review: The Fratellis – “Half Drunk Under A Full Moon”

I’ve never been a huge fan of The Fratellis. I’ve dipped in and out of their catalogue over the years but I never understood the hype connected to their music. It could be the fact that Chelsea Dagger haunted me for years working in Glasgow’s club scene or could be I was just wasn’t paying …

Review: Echo Machine – “Instant Transmissions”

Firstly, yes I do know this album came out like a year ago but I only actually find out about it on Friday when I was sent the video for the band’s cover of Peremen. Hailing from Dundee, Echo Machine are a blast of 80’s inspired synth-pop with a modern twist, up to date production …
