Bristolian singer/songwriter Gaz Brookfield’s (8.5) vibe fit perfectly with the Forest Stage’s intimate setting. His songs were perfectly crafted stories, capturing the attention of his audience. Technical issues prompted Brookfield to head into the middle of the crowd after one song, resulting in a huge singalong. From the amusing ‘The Diabetes Blues’ to the sombre ‘Tale of Gunner Haines’, Brookfield’s set and chatter between...

In hindsight, 2018 hasn’t been a particularly positive year. Leading on from the events of previous years, it’s been yet another twelve months of equal socioeconomic downfall and upheaval, with the times yet to come only continuing on this global downward spiral. Yet, with this in mind, this has proven to be the catalyst for an incredible year of music; potentially the best year for the music scene as a whole for some time. In turn, this only mak...

As we approach the end of December, it’s tradition to introspectively look back at the year behind us. Whilst this year may have been a turbulent one in more ways in one, it’s been an unquestionably incredible year for music as a whole. With that in mind, we look at the bands who have conquered the alternative scene this year.

Expectations are always high when Rolo Tomassi are in town and tonight's Halloween one-off special is no exception; it's a late one though, with doors not until 8pm and a curfew of 12pm.

Bone Cult (4) have the unenviable job of warming up a two-thirds empty venue. Being on just fifteen minutes after doors, the duo’s electronics-heavy, fog-shrouded set does little to get what little crowd there is moving. There’s an over-reliance on drum sampling a...

One of the acts responsible for Holy Roar’s recent trailblazing run of success, Yohkai stage openers Boss Keloid (7) present their progressive and dense melting pot of psyched uber-sludge to the early arrivals. With a set primarily composed of material from Melted On The Inch, the fashion in which the Wigan collective present a genre typically perceived as inaccessible to those unacquainted is universally appealing to thos...

Attempting to ease hangovers this morning are Texans Whiskey Myers (6) who play a Southern-fried take on bluesy, country rock. It’s easy, inoffensive listening but still packs a decent wallop; the band pack some seriously bluesy riffs into their easygoing rock’n’roll. People clearly like being eased into their Saturday morning too - punters are strewn across the grass, basking in the glorious sunshine the day has also bough...

We’re almost only 2 weeks away from the world’s most renowned and esteemed annual alternative music event, Download Festival. With the gates welcoming you to the hallowed grounds /muddy fields of Donnington Park opening in the morning of Wednesday 6th of June, this year looks like another one for the history books, with the legendary Guns N Roses headlining alongside Avenged Sevenfold and Ozzy Osborne. However, the undercard for this year is trul...

It’s impossible to overestimate the importance of Rolo Tomassi. Since their humble origins in 2005, the group have been hailed for their experimental approach to progressive music whilst smashing pre-existing stereotypes and tropes along the way. Following the release of their fantastic new album Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It (Read our 10/10 review here!) Rolo Tomassi are back for a sold out headline run accompanied by the brilliant Palm Re...
