Review // Levi’s #makeourmark, London

Review // Demob Happy – ‘Succubus’

  ‘Grunge soul’ is back in the form of Newcastle foursome, Demob Happy. Described in the past as the type of gnarly-show makers who “make you feel the speakers in your sneakers,” they have been compared to have the same swagger as the likes of Queens of The Stone Age. Based on everything I have...

Review // Death From Above 1979 @ Electric Ballroom, Camden

Review // Death From Above 1979 @ Electric Ballroom, Camden

  I arrive at the Camden based venue just as noisy and newly reformed duo Death From Above 1979 launch into their first song of the evening, ‘Turn It Out’, the opening track from their debut album, You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine. This is predictably very loud although, despite Jesse Keeler’s meaty baselines, it isn’t overbearing; well...

Review // Death From Above 1979 - 'The Physical World'

Review // Death From Above 1979 – ‘The Physical World’

  In 2004, Death From Above 1979 released their debut album You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine. The LP was a full-on assault to the senses, a noise rock album that was bruising and riff-heavy but also maintained a decisive element of listenability and musical know-how that suggested the Toronto duo of Jesse Keeler and...
