  • The God Slayer by Otep

    The God Slayer by Otep

    I’ve loved Otep’s music since discovering the album “Sevas Tra” — with that insane album cover being the thing that brought me in. Earlier today (yesterday) I listened to the recently-released The God Slayer, made up of half original songs and half covers. Loved it, although Sevas Tra has been — and remains — my…

  • Nymphetamine album — Cradle of Filth

    Nymphetamine album — Cradle of Filth

    Released in 2004, this is one of my favourite albums from my younger days. Thanks to a work mate, my love for this band has been re-ignited. I have been listened to their albums lots over the past couple of weeks, but this one has stood out to me above most. Possibly helped along from…

  • Listening to Goblin Greatest Hits After watching Deep Red last night, the music of Goblin could be a new obsession for me. 🤪

  • Blue Lips [Lady Wood Phase 2] by Tove Lo

    Blue Lips [Lady Wood Phase 2] by Tove Lo

    Lady Wood was one of my favourite albums from last year and still gets regular plays in my headphones. I was excited to say the least when I heard about Tove Lo’s follow-up Blue Lips [Lady Wood Phase 2]. A continuation of Lady Wood This album felt more akin to the sweaty underground night clubs I…

  • Made in the Manor by Kano

    When it comes to UK rap music, few are revered in quite the same way as Kano is. Present in the Grime scene from the early days, he has had five studio albums to date. Made in the Manor is his latest and stands up, hands down, as one of the best rap albums I’ve…

  • Nocturnal by The Midnight

    The Midnight are a two-piece synthwave band consisting of songwriter Tyler Lyle and producer Tim McEwan. They are from the American deep south and Denmark respectively. However, they now both live in Los Angeles and make some of the coolest music of the past few years. They are well respected, often revered, within the Synthwave…

  • Braver than we are by Meat Loaf

    I am a huge fan of both Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman. Their music, whether separate or in collaboration, has a special place in my heart. From the Bat albums to Welcome to the Neighbourhood; from Bad Attitude to Blind before I stop. Although the Steinman-penned albums are in a league of their own, I…

  • Bad for Good by Jim Steinman

    Bad for Good by Jim Steinman is one of my all time favourite albums. Less is known about his only solo album than his collaborations with Meat Loaf. It’s a crime that more people aren’t aware of this album. I absolutely adore every song on here and if I had to choose some desert island…

  • Masseduction by St Vincent

    Masseduction is the fifth album by alternative pop artist St Vincent – real name Annie Clark. It’s a showcase for her varied approaches to creating great music and never fails to deliver the goods. I had no prior experience with any of St Vincent’s music before hearing Masseduction. Within the first couple of songs, certainly…

  • Tropic of Cancer by Roslyn Moore

    Roslyn Moore is back with her second desert opera, Tropic of Cancer. I was an immediate fan of Roslyn’s as soon as I first heard her stuff on Soundcloud over a year ago. So the announcement of this new album did get me excited. Evolution of the desert opera. Tropic of Cancer is the new…

  • Melodrama by Lorde

    Melodrama by Lorde is an album I have been waiting for with baited breath, being one of my favourite artists over the past ten years. I was a little worried by the sound of the album’s first single ‘Green Light’.  I liked the song well enough, however, it didn’t seem to me to have that…
