Post War Glamour Girls - Feeling Strange
Nov 30, 2015 1:46am | Drowned In Sound
Having been in the music writing game for a few years now I can testify that a lot of the time its full of disappointments: inboxes full of bands struggling to live up to the hype of their press releases. Every now and then, however, a band pops up and makes it all seem worthwhile. The arrival of Post War Glamour Girls debut EP Tragic Loss; He Had Such a Lovely House through my letterbox in 2012 provided one such moment. That last years debut full-length Pink Fur was such a triumph was the icing on the cake: the confirmation that this was a band set to live up to the enormous amount of potential they had shown on their earliest releases.
Much like its predecessor, which began with the colossal Sestra, Feeling Strange doesnt hang around. Opener Felonious Punk clatters out of the starting blocks, dominated by fuzz and vocalist James Smiths typically confrontational vocals. Clocking in at under three minutes it also includes one of the bands finest and most accessible choruses to date as well as lashings of the classically off-kilter, dark post-punk atmosphere which the band have been able to summon effortlessly since the start of their career. Following it up is Wax Orphans, on one level the closest thing the band have ever written to a straightforward pop song and on another a delightfully ambitious and distinct...
The Good Life - Everybody's Coming Down
Nov 30, 2015 1:45am | Drowned In Sound
In explaining Everybodys Coming Down to Paste Magazine, The Good Life bandleader Tim Kasher discusses how difficult it is to really live life in the present, acknowledging a certain limbo between what was and whats going to be. He concludes by calling the album part of an ongoing wallowing on ageing and death.
He is not wrong, a fact that that plays directly into the records strengths and shortcomings. Strengths because Kashers eye for detail and melody remains as singular as ever, and shortcomings because at this point he has explored these themes - of solipsism and self-doubt; mortality, sexuality, artistic merit and existential crisis - on numerous occasions already.
The Good Life are much more than just Kashers acoustic side-project from Cursive, mind, and that has never been quite as evident as it is on Everybodys Coming Down, the bands fifth album, and first in eight years. Ryan Foxs guitar lines are dissonant, often blistering things, as on the albums lead single and first song proper, Everybody, which brings to mind the burly squall of Superchunk and Pinkerton-era Weezer, while Flotsam Locked into a Groove channels pre-Good News for People Who Love Bad News Modest Mouse in rickety, repetitious spirit. Stefanie Drootin-Senseneys bass playing is fluid and melodic throughout...

BBC Sound of 2016 longlist includes J Hus and Section Boyz
Nov 29, 2015 8:16pm | Fact Magazine
The BBCs wide-reaching annual poll has reported its first findings.
Each year, the BBC surveys over 140 music writers, radio presenters, industry bigwigs and assorted interested parties to plot which artists are expected to break through in the next year. The placing-to-success correlation is normally fairly reliable, with Adele and Sam Smith scoring the top spot in recent years. London electro-pop cherubs Years & Years were last years winners, beating out Stormzy and Novelist.
The fifteen-name longlist for this year’s poll has been released. There aren’t too many FACT-friendly names on this years list (recent nominees have included Kelela, FKA Twigs and Chance the Rapper) but readers will be pleased to see the inclusion of J Hus and Section Boyz. The Stratford rapper (interviewed by FACT earlier this year) and South London collective have both had a huge 2015, spearheading a new wave of young British rap acts.
Other nominees include multi-instrumentalist Mura Masa, Canadian singer-songwriter Alessia Cara, Stockport band Blossoms and London hip-hop act Loyle Carner. See the full longlist below.

Sinead OConnor confirmed safe after posting possible suicide note on Facebook
Nov 29, 2015 5:33pm | Fact Magazine
Sinead O’Connor is reportedly “safe and sound” after posting a distraught message on Facebook on Sunday night and allegedly taking a drug overdose.
“Gardaí [the Irish police] at Pearse St station have confirmed that singer Sinead O’Connor has been located ‘safe and sound’ and is receiving medical assistance,” reported Irish news service breakingnews.ie.
O’Connor shared a deeply troubling message on her Facebook page on Sunday night, claiming that she had “taken an overdose” after checking into a hotel under a false name. O’Connor has shared several upsetting posts this weekend detailing her dispute with singer Donal Lunny, the father of her youngest son, Shane. O’Connor said she was denied access to her “babies” by relatives after undergoing surgery.
“There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear. What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty,” the post said.
“The last two nights finished me off. I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in ireland, under another name.
“I’m invisible. I don’t matter a shred to anyone. No one has come near me. I’ve died a million times already with the pain of it. So yeah.. Strangers like me.. But my family don’t value me at all.&...
From Cerveza's to Muse to Pyramids: A-Z Guide to Corona Capital
Nov 29, 2015 5:33pm | Drowned In Sound
Arriving back in London to a porridge grey sky and furrowed brows on a wet November afternoon, your first thought isn't "ahhhh I'm home". 72 hours ago I was stepping off a plane in Mexico City, it was humid and the future was loading in my mind's eye like a movie in fast forward.
72 hours in any far-off city can feel like a film running at the wrong speed. Between the jetlag and the thrill of the new; the language barriers and the map-reading; the imagined palaces and the photogenic glimpses you've seen online; from the disorientation and the disorientating tequila - oh yeah, THAT! - it can be incredibly overwhelming being anywhere for such a short space of time. Let alone when you're gazing at to do list that involves pyramids, recommended places to eat piles of tacos, and a list of live acts to see that would make Glastonbury greenest field that bit greener with envy.
And now this. This "brrrr" of British winter. This stolen stare from a flaccid cheeked border patrol man with flakes of skin falling into my crumbled ticket which was once gonna get me out of here. Yet floating in the ether are the memories of Corona Capital and a city bustling with busted bumpers, and notoriously loud live audiences who didn't disappoint. They're memories that don't quite feel real as I look at my scrawled notes to write this A-Z review, but here goes...

Singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor has been found “safe and sound” after posting an alleged suicide note to Facebook on Sunday, according to TMZ.
In the note, O’Connor said she had taken an “overdose” at a hotel in Ireland, where she was staying under a different name. “If I wasn’t posting this, my kids and family wouldn’t even find out,” she wrote.
O’Connor, 48, previously disclosed that she was bipolar and had attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday in 1999. However, in recent years, the Irish native said she had been misdiagnosed and was not bipolar. Earlier this year, she underwent a hysterectomy after suffering from gynaecological problems.
Update: A representative has confirmed O’Connor is “unwell and receiving treatment.”
