Video of the Day: Penrose “Better Man”

Penrose are a 5 piece band put together by Darragh Mc Grane and can now be described as a solid Indie Pop band with catchy uplifting indie songs and anthems that have “attitude” and stick in your head. Mixing the pop sensibilities & harmonies of The Beatles / ELO, the snarling vocals of Richard Ashcroft (The Verve) and the rhythmic acoustic guitars of Oasis. The band mixes their 60’s and 90’s influences bringing them together and putting a modern feel and attitude to the music they create.

Reviving Bobby Green’s faith in the album meet The Crayon Set’s new release

  Review by Bobby Green It’s not often I’m lost for words, but after hearing Lost Languages I’m finding it difficult to summon up worthy praise for this delicately beautiful album.  It plays upon your heart strings early on, laying you down and lulling you into a tranquil sense of ethereal warmth with glowing embers lighting up your soul.

There’s been so much nonsense written by modern journalists...

If really good alternative rock is your thing then Bobby Green recommends Deep Sky Objects

  Review by Bobby Green Alternative Rock has become a bit of a dirty phrase over the last few years with so many bands not quite knowing where they are or where they are going, knocking out mediocre music hoping for mainstream attention. At the core of any great music, be it folk or pop or rock with the many sub genres within each category there has to be truth. And for quite a while now there has been nothing much to believe in. But as transgloble underground told me, ‘Watch The Sky, Keep Looking’ Deep Sky Objects are...

Bobby Green recommends the Magic of NC Grey

Review by Bobby Green As the days turn into nights on these autumnal months the darkness brings with it a chill that needs to be kept at bay. Fires are lit, and soundtracks are chosen to accompany the soft crackle of the fire while the burning embers dance their way up the chimney.  On these long cold nights we sometimes call upon some old friends for company. Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, John Coltrane’s Love Supreme alone has kept me warm for a whole winter such is the strength of its magic. But now there’s a new Magic, a voice...
