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

Prospect Music Awards: Part One... The Nominations

Small Disclaimer - All the photos used in this post, I do not own, and do not take credit for. These are simply just photos I've got to showcase the artist!  I am so happy to announce that I'm going to be doing some blog coverage for the Prospect Music Awards. Now if you happen to be unfamiliar with what the Prospect Music Awards is, then let me enlighten you!  The Prospect Music Awards is an independent music award, and it's based in Nottingham! How great is that? We all know I'm a big fan of my home city and I'm a big fan in supporting anything from Nottingham... however, this isn't something for small little Notts bands, no. The awards are just BASED from Nottingham. The artists are some massive (as you'll see when I talk to you about the nominations) up and coming acts from across the globe, and they truly are artists that you really need to keep an eye out for, and they're going to achieve big things. These aren't tiny little musicians, there

How's She Doing? by Pavè

  Welcome back to a new instalment of Grace talks about new music in the hopes that you will actually take her advice and check out the music that she hypes up!  Today I'm welcoming a new band to the blog, and I hope you will show them all the love and support in which they deserve!  Pavè are an indie rock band from Manchester. They are female-fronted, but that should never influence your opinion on them. They're a 6 piece consisting of;  - Alanya-Jade Simms - Vocals  - Jordi Shevlin- Lead guitar  - Kevin Peate- Rhythm guitar  - Leila Sumner - Bass - Ben Pursehouse - Drums - Lam Do - Synth For Fans Of -  Nothing But Thieves, Yonaka, The Amazons Straight in, I didn't know if I was going to like this track or not, but I was actually pleasantly surprised by just how incredible it is. I love Alanya-Jade's voice, and I actually quite like the vibe of the song. It reminds me a lot of Wayward Daughter, who was one of the first bands I really got into when I was like 12/13 and

Nescient by Dissonants

Just like last Wednesday, this post was written by the lovely person that is Tanya!  Back in 2017, Reece, Ben, Aaron, Mike and Chris teamed up after the end of two separate bands they had previously been part of to create Dissonants – and have since gone on to support the likes of Our Hollow Our Home, Rxptrs and Lastelle.  Last Friday (27th November) they released their 3rd EP, Nescient, which is showcases some of their best music to date, with brilliantly written songs surrounding topics such as corrupt politics and climate change. Amidst the deep lyrics, guitarist Ben also steps in as second vocalist (and absolutely kills it!). The EP features their previously released singles from this year and starts off strong with Forget to Forgive, a track which sets the tone for the album and shows off exactly who Dissonants are. Throughout the EP, you can hear snippets of the band’s influences (ranging from Deaftones and Guns n Roses to Lower than Atlantis and Architects), but Dissonants have
