Equal parts strong, sultry, and savvy, Nancy Sinatra has long been ahead of her time – both in her choices as an artist and as a business woman. Unapologetically, she established her own path early-on and paved the way for decades of female artists to come- all while firmly maintaining control over her career, her image, and her music. In 1965, an empowered Nancy Sinatra would change the face of music, fashion and culture.
Included two bonus tracks “Tired of Waiting for You” and “Love is Strange” from the original album sessions.

A cinematic musical journey that plays out like a long-lost soundtrack (think cult B-movie of 60s & 70s); this album was formed from a love of a myriad of genres; from European library music, acid folk, psych-funk, vintage soundtracks and the contemporary breaks scene.
The album draws on iconic classics such as the masterful cinematic funk of Schifrin’s “Dirty Harry” and Morricone’s “Vergogna Schifosi”, to name a couple!

Reflecting influences that range from early Jack White to Thee Oh Sees and Arctic Monkeys. The album Technicolour Shakedown showcases their own take on neo-60’s-garage, best described as “beach-fuzz-psych: with a big cheeky nod to the 60s British Rock!

“Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You” the new album by Big Thief delivers us some folky-indie campfire tracks. Much like the album cover, this album has a sweet and innocent feel that makes us want to roast marshmallows.
Adrianne Lenker’s vocals are, as per usual, harmonious and pure, occasionally going into a Cocteau-Twins-style range in songs like ‘Little Things’. More tunes to enjoy from this 20-track album are ‘Spud Infinity’ ‘Simulation Swarm’ and ‘Red Moon’

This album is like a firework; it’s powerful, bright, romantic and the good ones leave an impression on you. However, fireworks only last a second… “Going out with a bang” would be the appropriate term to use now, as the lead singer announced his departure from the band just days before the album’s release, making the album all the more sentimental.
It’s not very often I’m lost for words but this album left my heart hurting, my mouth a jar and my senses tingling! BCNR combine beautiful concords (those who know, know) with the saxophone, piano & violin and merge it with emo-esque guitar riffs. The vocals are clever and reflective of the time, with that classic south london post-punk 2020’s talking/singing style.
Anyone with growing pains will surely melt to this album. Not one to miss.

Still hungover from January? Yard Act are here like a quadruple espresso to catapult you into 2022!
The lads from Leeds deliver us their debut post-punk album, The Overload. At a time when British guitar bands are emerging left, right and centre, Yard Act are the ones that you don’t want to miss. With humorous and compassionate lyrics, the band have that post-bexit-political-post-punk vibe that seems to be heavy in the UK at the moment.
Their frontman, James Smith, tells the NME about his influences “The way Alex Turner wrote lyrics around social observation definitely helped me grow in confidence. To go into that amount of detail on specific objects, to make them seem poignant and profound was really cool. Before that, the music I was listening to wasn’t doing that.”
There is definitely an Alex Turner/Arctic Monkeys feel to this album; Cheeky, fun and meaningful.
Fans of Parquet Courts, Arctic Monkeys, Dry Cleaning and Shame will enjoy!
