CHECK IT OUT: Bother Me (My Lucky Fish)

16 Jan

Check it out: My Lucky Fish’s ‘Bother Me’.

my lucky fish

My Lucky Fish describe themselves as a pop-funk group currently based on the East Coast, although ‘Bother Me’ feels distinctly pop-rock in all the best ways. The first track from their debut album Best Thing – which is currently available to buy – ‘Bother Me’ is so relentlessly upbeat you’ll be hard-pressed not to like it. It brings to mind 90s pop-punk at its best; cheerful with an edge of ‘fuck you’. They remind me of Californian indie-rock band Sherwood, but without the soft edge and much more in your face. Guaranteed to put a spring in your step.

ALBUM REVIEW: Overexposed (Maroon 5)

22 Jun

Remember when Maroon 5 were actually quite good? It’s okay if you don’t; it’s been a while. The pop-rockers’ debut, ‘Songs About Jane’, came out in 2002 and marked the high point of their careers so far. Sadly, latest offering ‘Overexposed’ seems like it’s going to do nothing to change that.

ALBUM REVIEW: Trouble (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs)

20 Jun

Perhaps best known for his trademark T-Rex costume at live gigs, Totally Extinct Enormous Dinosaurs – or TEED for short, as it’s a bit of a mouthful – has been fighting off comparisons to Hot Chip ever since his debut EP was released on Joe Goddard’s label. Now ‘Trouble’ could be the record to push him into an arena all his own.

SINGLE REVIEW: Aquababe (Azealia Banks)

13 Jun

It’s a little sad that 212 is the song that Azealia Banks will be fighting off comparisons to for the rest of her career, regardless of whether the new song is better or worse. Aquababe is, quite simply, different.

Once we’ve got that out of the way it’s a lot easier to focus on Aquababe, Azealia’s new track from her upcoming Fantasea mixtape.
After insisting on Tumblr a few days ago that she no longer wants to be labelled a rap artist, and prompting a surge of news articles about how Azealia Banks is ‘no longer a rapper’, it’s a little surprising that Aquababe has no shortage of rapping in it.

It’s also rather good. Azealia’s rhymes are as strong as ever, spitting them out one after the other over lazy, dance-edged beats. Slick production and wobbly (in a good way!) bleeps and bloops combine to create a thoroughly enjoyable track. Fantasea is definitely something to watch out for.

SINGLE REVIEW: Interference (Breton)

20 Mar

Often called sonic and visual experimentalists, Breton are an art collective who create something that sometimes resembles indie rock, and they do a damn good job of it.
