E.P Review: All These Days by Gordon’s Alive!

Words: The Captain Photo: Micky Cooper In the words of Kuzco… “BOOM BABY!” (if you don’t know what I mean, watch “The Emperor’s New Groove”, you won’t regret it). Some swish new music to get my lugs around. “All These Days” is Gordon’s Alive!’s second E.P and they are very much rockin’ (geddit?) the old school rock style. It’s super awesome! Good riffs, nice vocals … Continue reading E.P Review: All These Days by Gordon’s Alive!

Song Review: Out in the Ocean by Megan D

(Photo Credit: Graham Mackenzie Photography) Megan D has always captivated me with her unique, soft voice. This song is no different. She has her own style that really does stand out, with her Scottish accent coming through (because what’s better than an artist signing in their own accent, especially if it’s Scottish?). This song is so very beautiful and I’m glad we can hear it now, … Continue reading Song Review: Out in the Ocean by Megan D

Single Review: The Girl From Dundee by Amy Lou

(Photo Credit: Hannah Findlay) The new single from Amy Lou is simply fabulous! Amy’s vocals are soft and sweet, layered over beautiful flowing music, and what sounds like a Glockenspiel which is super awesome. Amy reminds me a bit of Lucy Spraggan with this single, armed with her acoustic guitar and a set of clever, charming lyrics. The song is perfect to sit down and listen to on … Continue reading Single Review: The Girl From Dundee by Amy Lou
