Too Far by Good Hustles

  Good Hustles are back, and I love that they've released three tracks since September. That's a song every other month currently, and I wish more bands could give me that level of content, but also we're in the middle of a global pandemic, things are difficult.  Anyway, going into this track, the questions we're looking at are; - Can Good Hustles yet again outdo themselves?  - Is Too Far going to be anywhere near as good as Smile and Coffee?  Well, let's get into this, and talk about Too Far.  Now, we all know Harvey (Good Hustles' drummer) is one of my favourite people in the entire world, and I think he's a surreal drummer but when he sent me this track to listen to, I was fairly excited but also very nervous because Coffee and Smile were such solid tracks that I didn't think Too Far could be THAT good, because I mean, three bangers in a row? That's a challenge. Especially when a song needs to top the previous release in order to not be underwhelm

Bath Salts by Holygood

                                         The wonderful lads that are Holygood are back! On Friday they released their new track, Bath Salts. I swear Holygood are on top of the game currently. They’re really out here proving that they are a band that deserves so much more attention. They’re a band who you need to check out because they really are phenomenal. Of course, we all know Holygood are one of my favourite bands so I was very excited to hear they were releasing a new track! Although the title may suggest that this either 1. Holygood really branching out their merch game and not releasing a song instead releasing bath products or 2. Suggesting that Holygood were a big fan of bath salts and decided to write a love song for them. However neither of them are the case, instead, Bath Salts is a belter of a track with so much energy and change that it’s likely to impress many. Bath Salts is a bit different to the other tracks released by Holygood, it's similar to Killing Giants whi

Introducing: Dude Trips

  I don't own this photo, all credit for this photo goes to Nathan Matheson     Today, I'm welcoming the incredible Dude Trips to the blog! I literally found them last week, and I kind of became obsessed with their music! It's incredible, but we'll get to that in a minute!  Dude Trips are a four-piece Scottish alt/emo band. They hail from Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire and they consist of;  Jamie Mathers - Vocals and Bass Shaun Ross - Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Scott Burnett - Lead Guitar Sean Mitchell - Drums  If you're a fan of the likes of Trophy Eyes, Trash Boat or Modern Baseball and just bands with that sort of vibe, then maybe Dude Trips are going to be the one for you!  Now, it's no surprise to a lot of people, that I'm obsessed with Scottish bands, bonus points if they're small as well! My all-time favourite band is Twin Atlantic, and one of my favourite small bands is Misplaced. So, when I clocked that Dude Trips were Scottish they instantly had my h

Bands To Stop You Being A Music Snob...

 I feel like a big part of my brand is being very much against music snobs! No matter what genre you're into, there are music snobs in your scene.  Being a music snob isn't just about only listening to Top 40 artists, it's about not being willing to give smaller artists a chance! It's about acting like smaller artists are below your music standard. You can be a music snob and listen to punk, or rock, you can be a music snob and listen to any genre, but if you are not willing to give smaller artists a chance, and only care about the big acts. The acts that are living a very lovely lifestyle can afford to play massive venues and sell them out and don't care about the artists that work day jobs, where they play small venues, and your $0.0032 per Spotify stream is not enough for them to live on, then I hate to break it to you, chances are you're a music snob!  I am in no way, shape or form telling you not to listen to the bigger artists that can live off streaming r

The 2020 Lemon Awards

 Seems like it was only last month we were doing this, but here we are! The Lemon Awards are back, this is where we take in every little thing that's happened with music, and we give awards to the best! I'm very excited to be bringing you this again! Every year, this get's bigger and better and is always the best post of the year! Most categories get 3 awards 1st, 2nd and 3rd! However, the best release gets 5 just because of the amount of releases! As always, there are physical certificates for the winners! I will in time hand these out to the bands, as I see them, and the one I'm unable to see, I am more than happy to post the certificates, and if some bands want them sooner with how unpridcable the future is, again, more than happy to send them!  So let's get into this! The 2020 Lemon Awards!  I have tried to make this as small band orientated as I could, however, there are some categories where big bands just had to make a little appearance.  Best Release;  10. W
