Native Invader is the celebrated singer-songwriter Tori Amos hotly-anticipated new album on Decca Records. Tori’s confessional style of writing sees her continue to push boundaries with her music.

It was early 2008, The Wedding Present had recently finished a twentieth anniversary tour for George Best and, having played the entire album dozens of times, it was fresh under their fingers. So after they had wrapped up recording the El Rey album, David suggested they record a ‘live’ version […]
Out-Sider present a reissue of Shadrack Chameleon’s self-titled album, originally released in 1973.

“Composed around the same time as The Lemon Twigs’ debut release Do Hollywood, the Brothers of Destruction EP is not dissimilar to their first born prodigy; a last hurrah to the glam-baroque phase their music has, till now, dressed up in. And a lot of fun they’ve had in the […]
These guys have sometimes been described as a Black Sabbath-like band, and the name Black Widow itself invites a comparison. Yet if that had any validity at the start of their career, by this, their third album, they really sounded more like solid mid-level British prog rockers than satanic hard […]
Jets to Brazil’s third offering is a mirror ball of sound that reflects a clearer, more focused band and represents not so much a continuation of Jets to Brazil’s previous gestures, but rather a better understanding of them.

LOS ANGELES – In February 1986, The Replacements performed a classic live show at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ. That night, a 24-track mobile studio was on hand to record the quartet as they careened through a 29-song marathon that mixed tracks from all of the band’s albums to date with […]
Although Jane’s Addiction’s 1987 self-titled debut was an intriguing release (few alternative bands at the time had the courage to mix modern rock, prog rock, and heavy metal together), it paled in comparison to their now classic major-label release one year later, Nothing’s Shocking. Produced by Dave Jerden and Jane’s […]
“All hail Wolf Alice, four U.K. twentysomethings who have not gotten the memo about rock not mattering anymore. On a second album that dares to both sprawl skyward and focus its volume introspectively they fashion clouds of guitar noise into a crown for singer-guitarist Ellie Rosewell. It glitters seductively, but […]
Among the many things Eddie Vedder wears on his sleeve is his love of the Chicago Cubs. He was there during the Cubbies’ historic World Series win of 2016, singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh inning stretch of Game 5, an honor for a fan who […]
