James Blake and Crystal Fighters to Feature on New Channel 4 Music Show in April

James Blake, Crystal Fighters and Mount Kimbie are among the acts to feature on a new Channel 4 music show entitled ‘Abbey Road Debuts’. The new programme, a weekly series of 15-minute shows, comes from the producers of the channel’s previous show ‘Live from Abbey Road’. ‘Abbey Road Debuts’ will feature performances and interviews with each band at the iconic studios in London. The 12-week series will start from the week of the 4th April and will be presented by BBC 6Music DJ and son of the late John Peel, Tom Ravenscroft.

The pilot episode of ‘Abbey Road Debuts’ was broadcast in October 2010 and featured Everything Everything. The new series will also see performances from Trophy Wife, Lower Dens, Treefight for Sunlight and Dark Dark Dark.

Abbey Road Studios in St John’s Wood, London is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. The studios have played host to a number of world-famous recordings by the likes of Pink Floyd and Radiohead. The building was known as EMI Studios until 1970, when it was renamed to Abbey Road Studios following the release of The Beatles’ 1969 album ‘Abbey Road’.

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Alt-J - Reduxer (Album Review)
Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
