The Acid, The Deaf Institute, Manchester, Live

“When we first started this a year back, we thought it would just be some little underground project that wouldn’t really fly and now we’re here,” Ry Cumming – aka RY X, Autralian artist renowned for his doeful brand of sobering compositions – quietly mumbled before introducing ‘Fame’.

Dirty North, The Freestyle EP, Recorded

Mike Skinner once said “I always imagined that there’d be someone who would call out if I talked about something I didn’t know and I didn’t know my Moet from my Perignon.” And it is a line that sticks. While half of Manchester attempt to fixate on governmental proceedings with politically charged anecdotes that are […]

Lady Neptune, Destroys The Moon EP, Recorded

Please excuse the Marmite cliché, but it feels apt here… ‘Destroys The Moon’ is the second release from Lady Neptune (the alter ego of London-based musician and visual artist Moema Meade) and, quite frankly, you’re either going to love it or hate it. The bedroom-produced five-track EP is a concept record full of fuzzy punk-tinged […]

The Otherness, Come On EP, Recorded

The Otherness are one of a kind – a hybrid between indie and 50’s rock and roll. Though they sound like Americans, having been raised with their grandparent’s music and adding a bit of an alternative sound to it, the band is originally from Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina. ‘Come On’ is an EP made of fours […]

No longer talk to them. Hitmakers behind some of the most well known tracks produced in recent memory including ‘She’s So Lovely’, […]

Rochdale Feel Good Festival, Live

Rochdale Feel Good Festival celebrated it seventh year in some torrential style as it was consumed for large parts by some stereotypical Northern weather on Saturday 30 August. Not that that stopped the people of Rochdale. Rochdale loves this festival as much as Manchester United fans love moaning. The festival has always prided itself on […]

Freddie Gibbs, The Deaf Institute, Manchester, Live

“Turn that gangsta shit up Manchester and say ‘Fuck Police’,” barked Freddie Gibbs’ beats architect from behind his lowered decks at The Deaf Institute. It should have all become clear then really. Hoary and aggressive, Indiana raised rapper Freddie Gibbs is another wordsmith who centralised his du jour styled expressions on a love of the […]
