New Music: Declan Mckenna


Declan Mckenna

There’s some bands you just love their sound so much you eat up anything they put out. You want me to check out a band tell me they sound like a) RHCP b) Conor Oberst or c) Vampire Weekend. Let’s just say, Hertfordshire’s Declan Mckenna does a very good Ezra Koenig.

He hit the biggest festivals last summer, is touring his ass off early 2016 supporting Lison, Mystery Jets and the Foals as well as headline gigs in London and Paris ready for when he becomes unignorable later in the year.

2016: Pvris

Alright, forget Christmas, it’s over! It’s back to the gym, it’s back to work, right?

Wrong! There’s still plenty of food, work can wait but great new music can’t and while it’s fine to keep eating in the name of Mr. Christmas we’re all done with the associated music.



If you liked the last band I posted, Halsey or Paramore or just female fronted rock bands in general you’ll welcome this Lowell trio like the person you were suddenly drinking with last week like long lost friends, that you don’t remember ever being introduced to.

Stuck on Repeat: Halsey- New Americana


HalseyNew Americana

I mean, songs that reference other artists tend to be a little cheap because you might just like the song because it makes you think of someone you actually do like. But she tags Nirvana and Biggie Smalls which seems scattergun, borderline cynical. Same when people mention like James Dean or California or whatever as it’s just taking advantage of positive neuro-associations that the singer has no right to piggy back on. Just my take on it anyway.

She’s got a great voice but she’s heading for pop and sure the lilt is delibs for the hook but it does sound nice which is all you need sometimes.

Stuck on Repeat: Boy on Guitar- Things get Better


Boy on Guitar Things get Better

I read an interview around 10 years ago in which Ben Gibbard said he hoped to write a song that flowed as well as “Float On” by Modest Mouse. I probably didn’t think about that review again until I heard this song.

The guitar is light and rhythmic in the mould of Josh Jones’ Evangelicals and the vocals from Genesis Jennings soft and vulnerable without being twee. Just gorgeous to listen to over and over again.

I heard this first on the indie rock playlist, as ever the ultimate resource for the best music that isn’t Taylor Swift or whatever the devil you listen to these days.

Mythological Music: Brian Irwin- Little Fly




I love a good mystery and Reddit always comes up with some good ones. Lately I’ve become obsessed by people hearing amazing songs in grocery stores that seemingly don’t exist elsewhere in the world.

This is the future. The same future that gave us unreleased J.D. Salinger works in torrent form, the one with the terrabytes of top secret information made available through security hacks and freedom of information requests, as well as the personal celebrity photos of course. With that in mind I find it interesting when something isn’t available on the internet when there is a demand for it as well as many people putting a concerted effort into finding it.

And still Carnival of Light sits in Paul McCartney’s drawer..

So a few years ago someone heard a song with the lyric “Little Fly” being sung by a guy with an Anthony Kiedisesque delivery in Walgreens, it supposedly didn’t exist beyond the outer limits of that store’s PA system.

Internet, activate.

Long story short, they made the guy who wrote it re-record it and release it and here it is-

Brian Irwin Little Fly


And so it seems stores are avoiding the Taylor Swift copyright fees by spreading the word of local artists. That sounds like a great idea but what happens when you can’t find a song?! Like this guy.

I’m great at finding obscure and impossible to find music and yet I’m getting nothing more than anyone else who is trying is. It sounds like a great track but as with this guy the other day, the dream of a great song can be better than the reality.

shh bby is ok.
