The Orielles, ‘Bobbi’s Second World’ – Single Review

The shape of Indie has been changing these past few years. Fading, are the angst-driven tales of nights out and youthful lust. There seems to be three paths that modern Indie has taken.

Bowie, ‘Breaking Glass’, 40th Anniversary Edition – Single Review

Bowie, ‘Breaking Glass’, 40th Anniversary Edition – Single Review

As a bit of a music fanatic, and a huge David Bowie fan, it is one of my greatest regrets that I did not get to see him perform live. When coupled with my love for the live interpretations of songs and ideas, it really was a joy to listen to Welcome to the Blackout live in London (Earl’s Court) recorded back in 1978.

The Wombats are back with the Extended Version of their fantastic fourth album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life. Following on from the previously released ‘Bee-Sting’ the lads have dropped the nostalgia infused, 80’s inspired track ‘Oceans’ From the get go, the glossy synth is incredibly reminiscent of Bowie, namely ‘Let’s Dance’, the overuse of synths works really well, the disparity between intense vocals and instrumentals to relaxed synth beats sorta relates to the ebbs…
