Cristobal and the Sea - Peach Bells EP

This multinational quartet tries damn hard to make us remember summer on their debut, and is damn successful at it.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - I’m In Your Mind Fuzz

The Australian gang of psych-rockers barge into your head-space and proceed to make themselves at home without taking their shoes off and making a fair bit of a mess in the process.

Joey Bada$$ - Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London 24/11/14

The teenage Brooklynite has been threatening greatness for a while. Now, he’s ready.

The National - O2 Arena, London 26/11/14

The world's finest indie rock band fully justify their ascension to arena status.

The Drink - Company

Perhaps the most exciting things about The Drink’s debut are the hints it gives as to what might come next.

Pixies - Doolittle 25 [Reissue]

A gloriously extended Director's Cut of the 25th anniversary edition of a landmark album, which saw the Boston outsiders redefine guitar music.

Christopher Owens - Islington Assembly Hall, London 19/11/14

A reminder that Girls could have turned into one of the best guitar bands in the world, had they chose to stick it out – but their frontman, thankfully, isn’t going anywhere.

Savages and Bo Ningen: Words to the Blind - Oval Space, London 19/11/14

Two of London's most formidable acts combine to create a truly stunning work of sound and poetry, and a singularly immersive live event.

Slaves - Dalston Victoria, London 20/11/14

Punk duo seem right at home in a scrappy boozer after playing massive dates with Jamie T.

Beacon -  L1 EP

Brooklyn duo's latest EP might be mathematically themed – but it's far from formulaic.
