Virginia Soundtrack by Lyndon Holland

In Virginia the soundtrack is a first-class citizen. It's not simply just a well-written collection of pieces made for each scene, but additionally is a living, breathing creature itself. It weaves its way through you when listening, conjuring images either from the rural Virginia of the game's setting, or any other place you care to find…

Who You Selling For by The Pretty Reckless

"Who You Selling For" by The Pretty Reckless sounds to me to be their most ambitious album to date. Their third full album release sees them stepping up their game, incorporating fresh sounding elements while still holding on to that signature "Reckless" sound.

Integrity by JME

Two years ago, If you'd have told me that one of my favourite ever albums would end up being a rap album, i'd have probably laughed. However that is just what Integrity by JME has become. I should mention early on that I don't really have any knowledge of rap music in general; only what I've…

Churches by Scarlett Taylor

On my first hearing of Scarlett Taylor's music I was reminded of Lana Del Rey and Chrysta Bell - both being artists I adore. But now I have listened to Scarlett's second album "Churches" a few times, I now enjoy it on its own merits, no longer drawing comparisons to other artists. Churches is tagged…

Atlas by FM-84

I write sun-soaked 80s inspired cinematic dreamwave and synth pop.FM-84's Bio from SoundCloud FM-84 is one of the first artists I heard from out of the New Retro Wave genre of music. And his debut album, Atlas, is already a crowning achievement in his relatively new career. Every song has the perfect feel of 80's Americana,…
