Down I Go
'You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You'
....for FREE (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

After a bizarre and convoluted gestation, that at this stage has been well-documented, it was a pleasure and honour to release the new (and best) album by Down I Go. They were the band that gave my old band our first gig, and I knew Alan from DIG via his time in the awesome Johnny Truant (R.I.P). So this was a no-brainer. If you haven't come...

Helpless
S/T
....for FREE (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

I've been friends with Rusty from Helpless for many years and really respected what he did with BROTHERHOOD OF THE LAKE. He played me rehearsal room demos of Helpless earlier this year and I knew this band would be something I would be into. I promptly kind of forgot about them (I was busy yadda yada etc excuses) until I had to do a double take hearing them on the ever-awesome Read More

Eulogy

'Eternal Worth'
....for FREE (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

As far as i'm concerned this was the sleeper-slammer EP of 2015. From the ashes of Stallone came the brutal, seething Eulogy. If Shai Hulud were British and dabbled in The Dillinger Escape Plan acrobatics and Oceansize-style atmospherics, then you might be close to a description of the best tech-hardcore EP of the year. If this passed...

SVALBARD (Svalbarduk)
'One Day All This Will End'
....for free (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

Having been the 'UK's Most Promising' for a couple of years through a litany of EP's and splits, it was more than a bit satisfying to see Svalbard deliver an album even better than everyone expected. If you like real rock music, that sounds like it was made by humans with emotions then you need to listen to this album. As well as Very Good Album, Svalbard played Read More

PARISO
'Pariso'
....for free (or pay what you want) for the next 24 hours!

Amongst all the great albums we've been a part of this year, this release was somewhat sad/bittersweet for me. Pariso did, of course, split up this year - with their final gig being in September. This release (in conjunction...

Rolo Tomassi
'Grievances'
....for free (or pay what you want).

Rolo Tomassi celebrated their 10th anniversary by releasing their 4th, and best, album to date. It hasn't been a comeback, but this is a band who seem rejuvenated - something paid in kind with sold out tours, supportingFaith No More, touring across Europe and Russia with John Coffey and Read More

We Never Learned To Live
'Silently, I Threw Them Skyward'

This was the year WNLTL delivered on a couple years of promise with their debut album 'Silently, I Threw Them Skyward'. Perfectly realised from beginning-to-end, this is epic post-hardcore/post-rock that is reminiscent of an early 00's sound, whilst pushing forward and exploring new planes. Grab it today!

From now until midday on 9th December you can now download 'Silently...' for FREE/Pay what you...
