This Is Me reveals another side of Nicky Moyle’s music

480w_s

We were recently listening to Nicky Moyle and his Sound Poems for the Soul. It was a curious electronic downtempo release coming from a Bridgend-based rock’n’roll guitarist who’s been playing in The Last Chance Heroes for 20 years now. While the aforementioned release definitely surprised us in a nice way we were still curious to hear more from Moyle’s rock persona. So here’s ‘This Is Me’. It’s a nice little collection of original tunes by Moyle and a bunch of…

Fervid are based in Dordrecht, Netherlands and trust us on this one, they are not your typical rock band. Imagine the absolutely legendary vibe of The Beatles but performed with the energy of grunge. Now apply to this the punchy and emotional production of your favorite alternative rock bands. Sounds cool, right? The best thing about this is that we’re not daydreaming or hallucinating. We just finished listening to How? by Dutch trio Fervid and believe it or not they…

First of all, we should all agree that ‘Through Landscapes of Subconscious Nightmare’ is one of the most epic, grim and in the same time beautiful album titles we’ve come across recently.

It’s a conceptual, digital-only album which is pretty lengthy and multilayered in terms of ideas and their execution. CMR draws inspiration from genres like symphonic and industrial metal with a strong dark ambient and…

Pure (female) punk power is the heart and soul of Lolita’s Corner

ce08f2c84cefc63a00f0926e54ea10357237

It’s been a while since we’ve listened to something as powerful and emotional as Lolita’s Corner and their wild contribution to the worldwide punk rock scene. ‘Phone Box’, the record we’re now listening was released back in 2014 but the band has been around for even longer. Lolita’s Corner have over 20 years of history behind their backs. As you’ll hear for yourselves, everything about their music screams 1990s and that’s exactly when they were formed. Back then they used…
