Felix And The Sunsets – Pass Me My Matches

Posted on

Take a laid back blues-esque piece from the backing band, a pinch of kick ass solo, some 70’s inspired vocal lines and you get Felix And The Sunset’s “Pass Me My Matches”. These are an interesting band, giving nice shades across this very well composed piece of music. I’m listening and I feel chilled but […]

The title track opens the album and starts slowly. The […]

Posted on

By Reuben Salsa What an intro! “My Girlfriend She’s the Best…can’t pass the Turing Test” croons lead singer Frank Harkin. The band reimagines the world in shades of dayglow synthpop brilliance where “artificial intelligence satisfies all your needs”. I must have been very needy indeed as I can’t get enough of this tune.

This Is A Good Place To – Cobbler

Posted on

Poetry has long been a vector of change utilized by the disaffected. Crafted to propagate everything from revolution to chlamydia, its appeal and its effectiveness are anchored in its use of language, meter and context. Cobbler’s, “This Is A Good Place To Kiss”, scores a hat trick here, producing a timely piece of work that […]
