BRAND NEW: Blood Root – Conversations

Once I heard this, I just had to throw it up here. It is very rarely that you stumble across an act who is just starting out that sounds so accomplished. Conversations, remarkably is the first single to be released by Nashville based Blood Root and I'm instantly in love. It all starts slowly with... Continue Reading →

Quantic – You Used To Love Me (Ft. Denitia)

Will Holland is a seasoned producer at this stage with a glowing repertoire of lovely relaxing releases behind him. The New York based Englishman is back with a stellar new one here featuring words from Brooklyn’s Denitia. This is Holland’s third track from his upcoming album ‘Atlantic Oscillations’, which is due to be released via Tru... Continue Reading →

Tash Sultana – Can’t Buy Happiness

Taking it all down a notch or three here with a fine new release from Aussie mellow 'one person band' Tash Sultana. Sultana has been a frequent visitor to the Triple J top charts in recent years but this is my first helping of their music. Sultana is no slouch when it comes to being... Continue Reading →

Stuart Mavis – Uly$ee$

Dutch lads ‘Stuart Mavis’ have been firmly on my radar since I saw them play back in 2017 at Eurosonic Festival in Groningen.

In ‘SnifferFavs’ over the next while we will write about 10 albums that have influenced us greatly in the last few years ( Biased Review Alert 🙂 ). It is truly astonishing the power music can possess sometimes. I sat in my room late one bleak, rainy, evening in my parents house - it was around 2010... Continue Reading →

SAULT – Don’t Waste My Time

Serious shades of Santigold mixed with Tune-Yards humming off this little piece of stellar tune-age from SAULT. I have little to no idea about any information to shed on this band and have no idea how I managed to have it in the saved collection this week. All I do know is that it's a three...

The Vardenettes – Down With You

Taking the pace down a notch we stumble upon some very fine stuff from 'The Vardenettes', hidden away in the depths of the vast Spotify library. They are an Austrian/English duo making melancholy tunes down in South London. I heard 'Down With You' after being recommended it by a friend and was very impressed with... Continue Reading →
