Girlpool - Blah Blah Blah

Girlpool - Blah Blah Blah

Girlpool are an L.A. duo made up of Cleo Tucker (Guitar) and Harmony Tividad (Bass). Using their stripped back line up to maximum effect, it's sort of punk rock 'n' roll, but not quite as you've heard it in a while. Ignoring conformity Girlpool kick out their rebelliously raw and honest lyrics in edgy accented vocal harmonies, filling any space that others would desperately try to fill with drums and distortion. Hear the title track of their debut…

King Tuff - Black Moon Spell

King Tuff - Black Moon Spell

Out now via legendary label Sub Pop, Vermont's King Tuff's new album 'Black Moon Spell' offers up one of the greatest guitar riffs you'll hear in 2014, along with a hypnotic head banging video to accompany it. With its palette of washed out blacks, Gibson/Marshall reverence and witchy aesthetics, the light-hearted nods to heavy rock history - T. Rex in particular - are easy and pleasing to spot. Fourth track in, 'Headbanger' makes a sly lyrical…

Hyde & Beast - Open Your Heart

It's hard to resist the charm of Hyde & Beast - AKA Dave Hyde (The Futureheads) and Neil Bassett (The Golden Virgins). We were big fans of their first album, their relaxed approach to sourcing a brass section, and their overall ability to channel the sound of another era into the present without ever sounding old. Their second album 'Keep Moving' (released in August 2014) saw them receive the high praise they deserve from 6Music, NME, Q and even…
