Blackfield - Welcome To My DNA (Album Review)

It’s always hard to know exactly why Blackfield exist. That is no slight on the work the group have produced, just an acknowledgement of the fact that the two perpetrators of the melancholic alt-rock that comes under the Blackfield name are two musicians with careers that are both critically, and to an extent, commercially successful. Aviv Geffen is a bona fida rock superstar in his native Israel, despite his often controversial left-wing political positions. Steven Wilson is known the world over, predominantly for his work as main man in modern art rock giants Porcupine Tree, but also for a wide variety of other experimental music projects.

Jaga Jazzist - Scala, London – Wednesday 30th March 2011 (Live Review) 

It’s hard to know how to describe a Jaga Jazzist live show. Perhaps the best place to start is with the obvious, what is up there on stage. The stage at the Scala is not small by any stretch of the imagination and yet it is full to bursting with all sorts of instruments. There’s a vibraphone at the front next to the drum kit, several banks of keyboards and synthesizers and a double bass tucked away at the back. This is not to mention the various guitars, brass and woodwind instruments that appear during the course of the show. The nine people onstage are thus restricted in terms of space in which to move but this does not stop them from putting on one of the finest shows one could possibly wish to see.

Radius System - Architects of Yesterday (Album Review)

French experimental rockers Radius System explode back into life with the release of their new record ‘Architects of Yesterday’. The Parisian duo, founded ten years ago by Gregory Hoepffner and Axel Dallou,have been conspicuously quiet since their 2008 release ‘Escape/Restart’. The difficulties they faced transferring that record to a live audience saw the pair dissolve the live band altogether and the frustration and anger felt during this period is evident in ‘Architects of Yesterday’, but this is not a bad thing.

Kyuss Lives! – London HMV Forum – Saturday 2nd April 2011 (Live Review)

“I fucking love my life,” yells the lead vocalist with German doom metallers Burden. Why? Because he’s spent the past three weeks touring with reformed rockers Kyuss Lives. That’s right – Kyuss Lives, as the original stoner band have chosen to re-christen themselves for this reunion tour without co-founder Josh Homme. A controversial decision, maybe. But apparently an acceptable one, judging by the dense crowd packed into the sold-out Kentish Town Forum. Many may argue that Kyuss merely represented a minor introduction to Homme’s colossal musical career. However, no one seems to have mentioned that to tonight’s audience, who are singing their hearts out to almost every tune played by the remaining three original members – John Garcia, Nick Oliveri and Brant Bjork.
