Splendid gets in the first review
Read post

Splendid gets in the first review I’ve seen of the new Godspeed You Black Emperor! album. Cleanly-written stuff from Editor George Zahora, with the basic message that if you liked their other stuff, you’ll like this, and if you didn&#8217[…]

Simon Reynolds
Read post

Simon Reynolds provides a quick once-over of the current electronic music scene. It’s uninspiring stuff, because Reynolds sounds so uninspired himself by all the micro-genres and scenes he’s so briefly covering. Younger critics are starti[…]

R is for…..”Rock And Roll” by Led Zeppelin.
