Twentytwo In Blue by Sunflower Bean It was with great excitement that Sunflower Bean's second album Twentytwo In Blue, arrived at the Gig Junkies' HQ *virtually last week. Since hearing the latest offering 'I was a Fool' from the brilliant Brooklyn trio, I’ve been a little obsessed with the band and was more than a little wired to delve into the album to see if it maintained the the same feeling of positivity and quality throughout. Needless to say I wasn’t disappointed.

Turbowolf It’s been almost three years since the Bristol rockers, Turbowolf released their last album and is due to release their third studio album, The Free Life on the 9th of March 2018. Was it worth the wait…? Most definitely! It might be their third, but could easily be mistaken for a debut album - that special one where the band puts everything they have into it and you couldn’t have anticipated what’s to come.

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.
