REVIEW: The 1975 – ‘IV’

ARTIST: The 1975 ALBUM: IV GENRE: Alternative rock LABEL: Vagrant Records The 1975 have been playing music since 2002, but they haven’t always been known by that name.

The Bronx

REVIEW: The Bronx – IV

Artist: The Bronx Album: IV Genre: Hardcore/Punk Label: White Drugs I’m tempted to write that it’s business as usual here for The Bronx, but doing so feels like a disservice.

REVIEW: Dub Trio – IV

Artist: Dub Trio Album: IV Genre: Dub Rock Label: ROIR! Reviewing albums that meld seemingly unrelated styles of music has led me on a rather interesting journey. You may remember my reviews for some of these albums, such as Lulu or The Browning, and how they weren’t really that positive. Brooklynites Dub Trio are about […]


REVIEW: Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster – IV

Artist: Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster Album: IV Genre: Southern Metal Label: Ferret Records As the owner of a very small independent record label, most people will think I’m crazy for saying this, but I think file-sharing, torrents, and the like, are absolutely brilliant. It is easily one of the best concepts to hit […]
