Sleepwalkers by Brian Fallon Is Sleepwalkers the album to push me kicking and screaming back into Fallon’s brand of Americana? Maybe... Opening track If Your Prayers Don’t Get to Heaven is vintage Brian Fallon. Catchy, melodic and deceivingly simple, the New Jersey songwriter has clearly lost none of his soul. Indeed, this album is more upbeat generally than pretty much anything Fallon has been involved in since the Gaslight Anthem’s American Slang.

Album Review: Microshift by Hookworms Hookworms' sound previously epitomised darkness and depression expressed through dissonance and well-crafted cacophony whereas Microshift is a transformation into the more palatable realms of electro-indie rock. The title of the opening track, Negative Space, suggests that this album isn't one of overwhelming positivity despite the more upbeat essence to the music which is evidenced by the desolate searching lyrical content.

Lonely The Brave When the Cambridge 5 piece Lonely The Brave released their 2nd album ‘Things Will Matter’ in May 2016, it was always going to draw comparisons with their magnificent debut album ‘The Days War’ released in September 2014. The reviews of ‘Things Will Matter’ were very complimentary but many were perhaps expecting a bit more from the rock band. Fast forward to the present day and they are set to release ‘Things Will Matter (Redux)’ and let’s be clear straight from the off; this is more than just a stripped back version of the album, they’ve completely re-invented some of the tracks. ‘Things Will Matter’ was a rock album, this is totally different.
