All in all, I hope Sleuth keeps honing her craft because she’s onto something special here.
Sheehan and Smith have an incredible gift at not only music but also in story telling and it’s a shame this album hasn’t received the praise it deserves.
Their fifth studio album showcases high-proficiency in blending elements of bluegrass, folk, blues and country.
It seems Slumberjack are chasing that bigger and louder EDM sound.
‘Sofala’ is a cinematic experience that starts slow and melancholic to gradually thaws out into a 60’s styled psych jam… a brilliantly executed first release.
Overall, it’s bloody nice to see these lads returning to their roots to deliver something truly heavy and unique in today’s current metal culture.
The Cat Empire have been filtering new songs to us one per month since the start of last July, so there were no great surprises coming into their seventh album, ‘Stolen Diamonds’.
Not a warning but a firm reminder, ‘Don’t Feed The Pop Monster’, stands as a pivotal turning point for New Zealand electronic pop duo, Broods.
For the sound that they are striving for, are they acing it? Absolutely.
Remember this name.
