Interpol – the kings of drone. I’ve been on a rediscovery of late with this band’s music, and am more blown away now...

What can you say about these guys? It’s embarrassing what they could do with 4 instruments, that current artists can’t match with a 16-piece backing band behind them.

Polly-Jean Harvey has forged a path very few artists can dream of, never mind follow. She oozes class, credibility, power, dominance, truth and most importantl

I love this band so bloody much. So so bloody much. I call them the Irish ‘James’; a band whose music is rooted in their home countries, and relatively unknown outside of it (in comparison).

Many an Irish person has told me that The Frames are bloody massive in Ireland; and it’s easy to understand wh...

I find it mad, bordering ignorant, when people say U2 are “crap”. Granted their output since 2001 has been straddling between terrible & awful, but everything before then was some of the greatest music this world has seen.

U2 are a band. A real band. A band that started out in high school and learnt...

Asaf Avidan is the greatest singer you’ve never heard of. I randomly came across him 3 years ago, when I watched a YouTube vid of some guy playing guitar on a stairwell; and as soon as he opened his mouth, wow...

I first came across Kendrick Lamar when I found out he subtly sampled Radiohead’s ‘Pyramid Song’ on his track ‘How Much a Dollar Cost’. There’s been enough plaudits about ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ that I really can’t add anything more to what’s already been said. However, despite all the already incredi...

Arguably, Portishead have never written a bad song in their careers. Albeit little output compared to the length of their career, but still an amazing feat.

Portishead are for me about one thing; Beth Gibbons: one of the greatest female singers the world has ever seen. On a tightrope between pain, su...

Exactly 94 days ago, Prince was the greatest living musician on the planet. Imagine that; out of 7.4 billion people alive, you were the best. This is a realm reserved only for a tiniest minority of people; the Michael Jordans, the Albert Einsteins, the Usain Bolts, the Steve Jobs’, the Mahatma Gandh...
