I’m going to shut up and let the music do the talking this week, there’s a little nostalgia sprinkled among some releases fresh off the block.
Yet another Brooklyn show you’d have to sell your first born’s first born to get into. Damon Albarn + co.’s exclusive Brooklyn show, which was the group’s first U.S. show in 7 years according to Stereogum, was held last night at local record shop/venue hybrid Rough Trade—not exactly where you’d expect to see such an […]
We return once again to our regular schedule after a weekend away to witness another regular occurrence, sporting heartache at the hands feet of my local team. Throw in a much lighter wallet coupled with some jetlag and it sounds like a bit of a waste of time, but much like music, you don’t get […]
Let’s start with some good news, Shea Stadium reached their kickstarter goal in just a few hours yesterday. Why stop there though, you can continue to donate here.

I managed to see my fellow Oxfordians, Radiohead, on Tuesday, so everything else this week may seem like a bit of a Let Down (although I saw them play that 10 years ago too). Still, while the bar has been set high, there are still some fantastic bands in town for the weekend!
