Live Review : Modern Baseball, Audio, Glasgow (24/09/14)

Returning from hiatus, Spraynard act as main support for Modern Baseball this evening. It’s far more pop-punk in the traditional sense than the headliners. The three-piece from West Chester, Pennsylvania are all about the Mom jokes, song dedications, anti-homework messages and “start your own band” #stayposivibes. They are a little less posi however when the […]

Live Review : Azealia Banks, O2 ABC, Glasgow (15/9/14)

On the grand scale of bold openings, confetti showers during the first song is definitely up there. Due to some impressive stealth reactions, my lukewarm Tuborg thankfully goes untainted. Azealia has gotten her shit together in the live setting, if post “212” tours felt knee jerk and rough around the edges, this is the exact […]

The Balado-Bus Blues : T In The Park 2014

The date is Sunday July 14th 2013, the time just after 9am and the location is Buchanan Bus Station.

No passenger is more […]

Granted, to a more casual music fan there may be a more than a couple of unrecognisable names but with 50+ acts on from two tomorrow afternoon (Sunday […]

Live Review : Raglans, Nice ‘n’ Sleazy’s (12/04/14)

It’s possible to decipher a lot of the nature of a band before they’ve even taken to the stage or played a note. Taking in the visuals and asking such questions as is the kick drum logo made with black electrical tape? Does the equipment on stage include a guitar amp which looks like a […]

Album Review : “Caustic Love”, Paolo Nutini

“Caustic Love”,  after a major delay, drops today as Paolo Nutini’s follow up to 2009’s “Sunny Side Up”. Coincidentally, within a week of Fatherson and Randolph’s Leap’s slow-baked debuts, “I Am An Island” and “Clumsy Knot” respectively. It’s clear there is no hurry amongst Scots just now to bring out LPs, debut or otherwise, but has […]
