Her Name Is Calla
The Dead Rift EP

Folky post-rock indie loiners Her Name is Calla have come a-knockin’ again with new EP The Dead Rift. With its dramatic violin and fuzz bass, the opening song of the same name doesn’t sound so far from an indie version of Radiohead’s ‘Burn the Witch’, but Tom Morris’ ...view item »

Her Name Is Calla
Navigator

Brooding folky post-rock types Her Name Is Calla are back with their third album, ‘Navigator’ which has been produced over the last few years with band members Tom and Adam passing demos back and forth to each other to be eventually filled out with their usual sound of uber downbeat post-apocalyptic folk. ‘Navigator’ is a...view item »

Papier Tigre
The Screw

Papier Tigre emanate from France, where they have developed a hybrid of mathy angular post-punk and catchy poppiness, with a good dose of let’s-try-this experimentalism in there too. Their latest work on The Screw is tangled, complex stuff, but also instantly understandable on the instinctive level: you just move ...view item »

I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone

I found this band from a compilation which had the song 'Red Paper Lanterns' on it, and from that I didn't initially advance in listening despite it being an amazing song, however as more people starting discovering them in my Facebook group Prog Snob, i then heralded to give just the album a try as even though I enjoy instrumental music, I can'...view item »

Juffage
Semicircle

This is the debut album from Chicago born Jeff T Smith, now residing in Leeds, UK, which is of course where we live too. I'd encountered him live one or two times, most memorably when I took my girlfriend (favourite band: Mumford and Sons, last gig: Lionel Richie) to see her first underground rock gig. There stood Juffage making an almighty ...view item »
