obsessing over new music since 2007

The ‘CSNY 1974’ boxset campaign keeps rolling on, with MOJO featuring Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young on the front of their September issue alongside a covermount cd. Stream four tracks from this fine collection of honeyed tracks, documenting the infamously less harmonious US stadium tour by these classic rock troubadours:

Thanks MOJO for putting CSNY all over their social networks too, nice work!

'CSNY 1974' is available now through CSNY and Rhino in a variety of tantalising formats.

Honeyblood’s ‘Super Rat’ video explodes a few tired love tropes. We especially like the blood-dripping roses.

Their s/t debut album is out this week on FatCat Records, buy it here or from your local independent store.

Stay with us for more news of their upcoming record ‘Man, It Feels Like Space Again’.

So it seems summer has arrived in the UK and who better to soundtrack this glorious weather than Paris’ hottest export, Orval Carlos Sibelius. His glistening psychedelic tracks are bursting with warmth, optimism and such joyful vibes that they’ll even wash away the despair of The Great Escape having passed already.

And talking of The Great Escape, last Thursday Orval stepped up to play two shows on day one of the festival and despite the harsh weather hammering down on Brighton, his sunblushed set, jammed with soaring choruses transported the atmosphere to one of trippy, exotic euphoria. We promise if you need a lift, check out ‘Asteroids’ and that’ll do the trick.

Once you’re hooked, don’t fret, you haven’t got too long to wait until new album ‘Super Forma’ drops on 2nd June. Give the new video a watch below.
