REVIEW: The Districts – ‘You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere’ (Fat Possum)

‘You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere’ is a slightly disappointing and anonymous fourth album from The Districts, whose previous output had been so intriguing.

REVIEW: God Damn – ‘God Damn’ (One Little Indian)

With a superabundance of frantic, noisy riffing and howling vocals, ‘God Damn’ is a return to form for the Wolverhampton trio.

REVIEW: Georgia – ‘Seeking Thrills’ (Domino)

More confident and less self-conscious than her already accomplished debut, Georgia Barnes’ ‘Seeking Thrills’ is a thoroughly enjoyable modern if occasionally safe pop experience.

REVIEW: Nolan Potter’s Nightmare Band – ‘Nightmare Forever’ (Castle Face)

‘Nightmare Forever’ is a vivid and colourful album of psychedelic rock from Nolan Potter’s Nightmare Band.

REVIEW: Pumarosa – ‘Devastation’ (Universal / Fiction)

Venturing into gloomy, psychedelic space-rock territory on their sophomore album ‘Devastation’, Pumarosa continue their development.

REVIEW: The Sherlocks – ‘Under Your Sky’ (BMG)

On ‘Under Your Sky’, The Sherlocks deliver a criminally unimaginative sophomore album that serves as a whistle-stop tour of indie-rock’s clichés.

REVIEW: Temples – ‘Hot Motion’ (ATO / P.I.A.S.)

On their third album ‘Hot Motion’, Temples unfortunately over-polish their sound and lose many of the winning characteristics that made them so satisfying.
