Gabriel Power at By Volume

I'm here to tell you love ain't some fucking blood on the receiver. Love is speaking in code. It's an inside joke. Love is coming home. The Format - If Work Permits

Maybeshewill – Fair Youth

Maybeshewill have created a monstrous beauty.

Interview: Phil Hartnoll

Phil Hartnoll discusses Orbital’s Glastonbury ’94 gig, praises those who helped them there + talks their influence twenty-five years in.

Glass Towers – Halcyon Days

A refreshingly nostalgic debut.

Adebisi Shank – Big Unit

“Adebisi Shank’s monumental “Big Unit” is one of the greatest songs I have ever heard.”

ED – Forest

Gorgeous math rock.

Foster the People – Supermodel

Supermodel tries, but it’s ultimately an ugly record.

The Electrician

How Scott Walker both fast-tracked my enlightenment and disfigured my soul.

Probably In Hell: LITE @ Electrowerkz

Gabriel rounds up a rowdy, boozy and gloriously technical night.

Maxïmo Park – Brain Cells

“It’s moody, bleak and danceable in a mumbling, grumbling sort of fashion, and it’s utterly fantastic.”

Gabriel has the audacity to complain about seeing Sigur Rós twice.

Chris Forsyth – Solar Motel

Fades into the background.

Paul McCartney – New

Stand back and watch how it’s done.

65daysofstatic – Wild Light

A rare misstep, but a nasty fall all the same.

White Lies – Big TV

If music were the Big Bang, Big TV acts as the residual white noise – it never ceases.

Youngblood Hawke – Wake Up

A sterile sound for a sterile new wave.

Queens of the Stone Age – …Like Clockwork

Brilliantly caught between the insane and the divine.

TV On The Radio – Mercy

“It’s pulsating. It’s pounding. It’s three minutes of relentless power chords and a palpitating rhythm section.”
