#albumoftheday / REVIEW: CLIENT: AUTHORITY

Is there such a thing as cold war chic? That’s how I keep hearing Client described, though I think it’s more of a reference to their album covers and videos than to their music. After all, Authority is their fifth album and it’s only the first to show the women’s faces on the...

#songoftheday / REVIEW: LANA DEL REY: “WEST COAST”

Lana Del Rey’s red hot new single “West Coast” may, in fact, be at least partially about the West Coast, but it’s like the West Coast via Twin Peaks with its entirely haunting music and her super trippy vocals. Interestingly, the song, which was written by Lana and Rick Nowels, actually gets a...

BAT AND BALL: AN INTERVIEW WITH CHRIS AND ABI SINCLAIR

The UK’s Bat and Ball are an immensely-talented outfit with co-lead vocalists Abi and Chris Sinclair hailing from West Country. While the two began writing and performing with various bands in their early teens, they never actually played in a band together until they both moved to London to study at Goldsmiths College,...

#albumoftheday / REVIEW: MISTERWIVES: REFLECTIONS

MisterWives must be feeling pretty happy with themselves, their new EP, Reflections, garnering them positive reviews in such publications as Billboard, Interview, Buzzworthy, NYLON and TeenVogue. Then again, the band seemed charmed long before the reviews came in. In February of 2013 the group — Mandy Lee (Vocals), Etienne Bowler (Drums), Will Hehir...
