Album Reviews

Confusingly named Peter Kernel release new long player The Size of the Night on 9th March via On The Camper records. Whilst sounding like an acoustic guitar wielding singer songwriter, the band are actually a duo comprised of Barbara and Aris, Canadian & Swiss respectively and now based out of Switzerland. When asked whether they are a couple, their response is that they don’t know. All very intriguing.

Quite an exceptional record, one that perhaps we would have liked Trent Reznor or Depeche Mode to make next.  No need to wait though, there is a new ish kid on this block and his name is Luis Vasquez who, has made an incredibly powerful industrial rock album that has been released on the Sacred Bones label.

Apart from finding a debut album that you become obsessed with, is there anything better than being sent an album by a band you have never heard of which you subsequently love, and find out that this is their 9th record?!

If you’ve just about had enough of the miserable weather, how about listening to some “raw, fuzzed out garage rock” from Birmingham to cheer you up ?? In that case, that’s exactly what Table Scraps can offer you from their latest album 'Autonomy'.

There are some bands that just effuse class and determination, Calexico are one of those bands and with their new album ‘The Thread That Keeps Us’, they continue to point us down the road to musical joy.
