Only in early adulthood did the sisters reconcile and find their love for making music together. Their visual presentation […]

Andy Shauf Waiting For The Sun To Leave P Is For Panda By Giles Turnbull Andy Shauf is the quietest man in the world, probably. But he grew up listening to Napalm Death, Slipknot and the sounds of monster trucks playing tug of war with bungee cord — maybe. He’s also definitely been voted one […]
Underworld Barking Om Records By Giles Turnbull Underworld has been one of the pioneers of electronic dance music for around 20 years. Their early albums were vast in their imagination; sometimes you wished that tracks comfortably exceeding 10 minutes could be a little less epic!

Elizabeth & The Catapult The Other Side Of Zero Verve Forecast By Giles Turnbull Elizabeth & The Catapult’s debut album, Taller Children, received much praise, and deservedly so; it’s part-folk, part-indie, slightly jazzy nature was lively, and at times mischievous, which made it stand out from other female-fronted indie pop offerings.
