This is going to be a strange kind of review, Mac DeMarco is my idol but I'm trying to keep my journalism head screwed tightly on (thats hard to do). Mac DeMarco's dates in London's Brixton Academy (30th and 31st of June) came a couple of weeks after the release of his new heartfelt album … Continue reading Mac Demarco – Brixton Academy

Landlord, the new album released by Giggs, was one of the featured albums reviewed in the magazine and within said review they labelled the grime artist as 'one of Britain's most important artists'. Now this … Continue reading The Demise of British Music
Friday afternoon I rushed home from university in anticipation of the night I've been waiting for for months. Cam Penner and Jon Wood, at Otley Courthouse, playing to an audience of around 60.
