Track of the Day: Stoat’s ‘Talk Radio Makes Me Feel Alone’

  Review by Bobby Green Who remembers when Indie music was alternative? Not mainstream wannabees but a real alternative to the music you’d hear everywhere else. When did everyone decide they wanted to write anthems? I just heard Stoat’s ‘Talk Radio Makes Me Feel Alone’ and it’s by far the greatest thing I’ve heard this year.

Bobby Green reviews Brass Phantoms new single “Waiting Up”

Review by Bobby Green Dublin’s Brass phantoms are set to release Waiting Up, their follow up to last year’s excellent City Of Wolves on February 24th. Everything that made City Of Wolves such a stand out track, the thundering drums and rumbling bass providing a cavernous groove, is interwoven on this new track. But within this alternative groove there’s a wall of sound that ignites a fire where the guitars dance around a melody like the flickering firelight’s ethereal glow.
