Django Django - Leeds University, December 5th (LIVE REVIEW)

Considering it’s blowing a gale and the roads are all over the place, Leeds University is pretty full as we await the arty quartet Django Django to the stage. Down the road those very thoughtful Stereophonics have posted a message on social media advising concert goers to allow plenty of time to travel to their Leeds arena show but we don’t need any hand holding here, this is Rock and Roll!

Chastity 'Tape' (EP REVIEW)

In their infancy on paper but by no means lacking in limitless promise, Chastity are a somewhat controversial and intriguing prospect. Hailing from Whitby, Ontario, Chastity is the brainchild of lead singer Brandon Williams. Formed early in 2015, they have wasted no time in stamping their mark on the scene. Tape, released 13 November 2015, serves as an easy to digest yet emotionally destructive tidbit of anthemic angst. Clocking in at less than ten minutes, this debut EP is a signal of intent from the Canadian grunge rockers.

Tigercub 'Repressed Semantics' (EP REVIEW)

Brighton rockers TIGERCUB may not have total respect for the rules of grammar but the irreverence they bring to that fuzzy roar they call their sound is exactly what makes Repressed Semantics so good.
