You Are Number Six (or YANS) are a duo from France and this is their new EP VHS Dreams. These guys perform a kind of electronic music that brings a lot of everything going on from the 80’s into the modern day, and gets it sounding as glitchy as possible to really ramp up its gothic appeal. It’s very intriguing, and I’m particularly glad they’re on Tree Machine Records.

Y’know, there’s been some good music from us Brits this year, and this is another one. From The Cave are a five piece band from London and this is their new self-titled EP. These guys perform some kind of rock cocktail, taking influences from alternative to grunge to punk to produce something that makes me wanna drink it all up. Mmm, delicious.
The EP kicks things off with Night Hawk which offers a sweet Hawk sample alongside a sketchy guitar riff that’s equally moody and catchy, producing the strangest dance moves out of me. From The Cave throw down some sweet male/female vocal dynamics on top of the instrumental which really comes into full swing for the chorus which properly fills up the airwaves. It’s a very catchy listen, and definitely gets me in the mood to enjoy the rest of what’s to come. Continue reading “Self-Titled EP by From The Cave / EP Review”
Zublue is a trio from Essex and this is their upcoming debut EP Change The Channel. I’ve only changed the channel only three times in my lifetime; the first was during an episode of Wacky Races when Dick Dastardly and Muttley clearly won the race for the first time and had it taken away from them, the second was when I came home and found my sister watching The Kardashians, and the third was on Easter Sunday when that awful film with the rabbits all killing eachother was on Channel 5. Anyway, as well as being from my personal ends of Essex Zublue are also influenced by the likes of Foo Fighters, Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and describe themselves as a Dave Grohl stunt double, a man “armed with a quiff of dangerous height” and a bassist who holds his bass the wrong way. Awesome.

Surprises are a wonderful thing. Nothing beats finding tenners in the pockets of rarely worn jeans, finding out that the baby isn’t yours and discovering that Marvel Studios did Deadpool correct are some examples of what makes life truly interesting. Kendrick Lamar has become a surprising source of new material this past week by dropping a new album titled Untitled Unmastered, which he took to Twitter to mention is comprised of demos recorded during the sessions which would ultimately birth the seminal album known today as To Pimp A Butterfly. It’s raw, unmastered and it still sounds good.
