Follow That Bird! – Wooden Bones

It’s incredible, unsettling and crazy how much life pulls out surprises when you’re just going about your mundane daily business. Take today for instance. As a desensitized critic who has so many t-shirts from the number of times I’ve ‘been there, done that’ in my appreciation of new bands and music I did not anticipate … Continue reading

League – Golden Maps

Seriously ladles and jellyspoons I am so in love with this song right now I’d happily have its babies. Who is it? You didn’t read the title up there?

Cults – Cults

Cults are one of those ‘phenomenon’ that the internet spews forth from time to time. The remarkable take up following the online release of ‘Go Outside’ earlier this year is a testimony of that.
