Hesus Attor - Sonic Gastronomy Volume 1

posted April 8th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Let me start by saying I’m quite the fan of esoteric and weird music; strange instruments, odd time signatures and nonsensical lyrics are great, but this album had me more than once face in hands muttering to myself ‘whatthefuck, whatthefuck whatthefuck’. It is quite simply the strangest album I’ve ever heard; as if SiKTH decided to let their hair down and be really odd. But let me break it down for you…

Living With Lions - Dude Manor

posted April 2nd, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

‘Living with lions play melodic punk rock, and they play it very, very well’. This is how my review would read had the twitter revolution spilled into the reviews section of Last Hours. Fortunately, prose is still the preffered form of discourse for reviews, though, in this instance, that one sentence could adequately summarise my thoughts.

Merit - Arson Is For Lovers

posted March 29th, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

‘Arson is for lovers’ is the kind of pop record i adore, the kind that just grows and grows on you, until you reach the point where you can’t imagine a day passing without having to achieve sonic confirmation that each hook is exactly where it was the last time, or just to check that you’ve been humming it correctly.

Ceremony - Still, nothing moves you

posted March 27th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

To cut to the chase, Ceremony play 80s hardcore harder, heavier and faster than anyone did 25 years ago, and they do it pretty well.

A few summers ago, when i was a mohawk-clad teenager, who listened to little music that wasn’t Leftover Crack, i received a friend request on myspace from an acoustic folk musician who performed under the moniker ‘Phantom Lights’.

SSSSnakes & Bangers - split

posted March 12th, 2009 · posted by Fred Goodsell · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

The first thing that impressed me about this record was that the packaging is hand screen printed. It’s always nice when bands are willing to put some time into creating something special. As a result of this, my copy is apparently one of only 50.
First up of the two band is SSSSnakes. Due to the [...]

Propagandhi - Supporting Caste

posted March 6th, 2009 · posted by anon · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Almost exactly eight years ago I had asked my brother to get a Me First and the Gimme Gimmes album for my fifteenth birthday. I was fairly pissed off when I opened my gift to find ‘Today’s Empires Tomorrows Ashes’ staring at me. As my taste in music developed, ‘Today’s Empires…’ never left [...]
