    It ain’t pretty but it’s memorable, like the aural equivalent of gurning

  5. Light Pollution - Apparitions (Carpark)

    Albums: Light Pollution - Apparitions (Carpark)

    The winning formula for Light Pollution is a good energetic beat behind their ambient constructions, and a discernible refrain in front of them.

  6. Band of Horses

    Live Reviews: Band of Horses @ Camden Roundhouse 09.06.10

    The lights go down and the slightly bloated, slightly older, slightly more hirsute audience in the Roundhouse hushes. Not to be greeted by the American gentlemen we’re here to see just yet, we are instead subjected to the unmistakeable opening passage from Phil Collins’ 'In The Air Tonight'.

  7. Perfume Genius – Learning (Organs/Turnstile)

    Albums: Perfume Genius – Learning (Organs/Turnstile)

    A collection of songs so sincere and angst-ridden that your own emotional cracks will begin leaking at the seams

  8. David Karsten Daniels & Fight the Big Bull – I Mean to Live Here Still (FatCat)

    Albums: David Karsten Daniels & Fight the Big Bull – I Mean to Live Here Still (FatCat)

  9. James Yuill - Movement In A Storm (Moshi Moshi)

    Albums: James Yuill - Movement In A Storm (Moshi Moshi)

    Yuill raised the bar with his debut record, but is it a case of second album syndrome for the English folkster?

  10. Slow Club

    Live Reviews: Slow Club @ The Cockpit, Leeds 29.05.10

    Having released their album ‘Yeah So’ earlier this year, Slow Club seemed to Bearded like a band who would play a calming, airy-fairy acoustic gig punctuated with little other than song announcements.
