Blood Red Shoes
Blood Red Shoes

I notice that now, on their fourth album, Blood Red Shoes have opted to go down the self-titled album route. Perhaps they feel this is their defining statement, perhaps they couldn't think of anything good enough in time. It's not for me to judge. Either way there's another album of their strident Kills-meets-...view item »

Pulled Apart by Horses / Blood Red Shoes
Get Off My Ghost Train / Heartsink

Cover bands are usually rubbish, but sometimes a project comes along which give the tired idea a better lease of life. This project from Pulled Apart By Horses guitarist James Brown lets ‘proper’ bands cover tracks from their fellow musicians. The first single features Pulled Apart by Horses and...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
Cold

The new Blood Red Shoes single is mental. It's hinges on the kind of blast beat you might come up with if you wanted to sound more like Slipknot or Mudvayne. It's backed by what the band refer to as a 'mean' riff and Laura-Mary Carter's now soaringly epic vocal hooks. It's sounds mega mas...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
I Wish I Was Someone Better

Blood Red Shoes: 'I Wish I Was Someone' (V2) Golly gosh there's loads of girls fronting spiky power pop groups these days, not to mention the plethora of folk strummers. This is a right angry racket full of full-on, full throttle guitars and pounding beats, angsty lyrics with issues to air. Maybe the Riot Girl movement's legacy surfaced twofold thi...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
Heartsink

This newie from BLS is pretty sweet. It actually has a quite heavy sound that blows my preconceptions about these ruffians right out of the water. I thought they were like angry cats in a barrel, now I think that they are more akin to something a bit harder, like a mythical beast on a council estate scaring old folk. Side 2 has a really enchanti...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
Light It Up

I'm sorta familiar the Blood Red Shoes duo from there early gigs and i know Steve Ansell from previous projects The Oedipus and Projections. Both of these groups seem to have been a warm up to the ultra grunge formula they are now pursuing. As mentioned in the press release, this is pretty much a straight up grunge rock tune in the vein of The Pixi...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
Box Of Secrets

OOOOOh more contempor-indie. I recall Phil saying how fit Blood Red Shoes were. Now i've seen a piccie I want to take them home in my pocket. If they can fit in there with Mos Def & Angelina Jolie that is......All I can muster listening to their raucous debut 'Box of Secrets' is a reasonable cross betwixt The Subways & early Young Knives. T...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
Say Something, Say Anything/ Waiting For Signs

I could have sworn that Blood Red Shoes had a female vocalist. Brian has just confirmed this so I'm not going mad their single 'Say Something Say Anything' has other boy half of the girl/boy duo stepping up to the mic. Clearly a talented pair, they have a good sound, bollocks and energy with catchy hooks. Decent indie rock band like... the pro...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
You Bring Me Down / How To Pass The Time

Well Blood Red Shoes have been snapped up by V2 now, their kinetic buzzsaw racket very akin to a Limey Sleater-Kinney or summat. You Bring me Down has already been a limited 7" on XL and the luscious Maggie, bless her raven locks & tempestuous lips, formed these words back then whilst scratching her bits.... "Now I have the ...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
You Bring Me Down

Now I have the new single from Brighton 2 piece BLOOD RED SHOES on Abeano Music. Brian's loving the sounds and I'm quite tempted to pop down their show tonight as my friend has spilt from his girlfriend today and wants a shoulder to cry on. Might as well be in an incredibly loud exciting rocky environment to muffle him out. Rocking and angular with...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
ADHD

If yr collecting the Blood Red Shoes 7"s, then there's another one out. It's Sleater-Kinney esque angualar shouty lady gear with a soupcon of Shellac's math rock aggro somewhere in there. Pretty darn well executed too. Discordant, jerky & possessed. Dunno what 'A.D'H.D' stands for but it may make you want to sta...view item »
