L-Space - Backup Baby (Track Review)

L-Space are teeing themselves up for an album, Kipple Arcadia, which will be released in september. I guarantee that it will sound just as majestic as these singles do and "Backup Baby" is no exception to that rule. With Lily's (Lead Singer) vocals sounding as iridescent and melodic as ever, I love that she takes a softer tone on this song, it really amplifies the power of her voice and ultimately it becomes the most powerful instrument throughout this song.

It feels like everyone of these L-Space reviews goes one way and that's me praising them non-stop - but I genuinely have nothing bad to say about the band. And everytime I listen to them I fall more in love with Gordon's keyboard playing, he's the unsung hero of the band but he's also been there from the start and he's just as deserving of praise on this tune because he draws melody in and spurts out a tune that has evolved their sound, more removed from their spaced out tune "Aloe" but more in-line with genres such as prog rock.

But, as readers of KMMR may already know, I'm a huge fan of synth-driven tracks. This leads me on a one track path to loving this song, leaving a lasting note in the memory long after the song has finished. And another thing, this is L-Space's catchiest song, it's one that has been stuck in my head ever since first listening to it. I'm ever thankful for Last Night From Glasgow for signing L-Space up, because it means that we are given this clinical and more wholesome sound as it's clear they're given proper studio time now. I can't wait to grab a vinyl copy of Kipple Arcadia in september and you bet your bottom dollar that I'm praying for a tour!

Live Review: Bernhoft & The Fashion Bruises at O2 Academy, Birmingham

Bernhoft is a grammy nominated R&B artist, someone who came to my attention this year and blew me away with his album Humanoid, an album that almost edged on the side of pop, taking a large step forward and slightly away from a very traditional R&B setting. So when he stopped by Birmingham on his short rendezvous through Blighty.

First up were Lawrence, a 7 (I think) piece jazz-pop band that I only caught towards the en of their set but what I saw made me wish I'd seen it all, a fantastic rendition of Sean Paul lit the room up incredibly, immediately having me hooked in their set. The songs that followed were each as joyful as the next and contained some of the best contemporary jazz infused music I've heard in ages!

Bernhoft swaggered onto the stage with the Fashion Bruises in tow and blew the roof off the O2 Academy as he ran through a set that began with the title track of his latest record, dancing and performing to songs he loved just as much as the crowd screami…

KMMR's TOP 50 ALBUMS OF 2018 // 40-31

And then we move into the 30s, the self-titled pop extravaganza that this is. If you haven't read the previous installments then check them out below:
Honourable Mentions Albums 50-41
40. Bad Sounds - Get Better

I was hoping for a little more from this album but there's no longevity to it whatsoever. Whilst there are some incredibly funky and fantastically produced songs, it doesn't quite pull the album through. Nonetheless, tunes such as "Milk It" and "Wages" are some proper stompers that would make a songs of the year list if I made one.
39. Tom Grennan - Lighting Matches

I find the same issues with this album as I did Bad Sounds, albeit Tom Grennan has a fantastic voice which really makes his music that little bit more unique for me. I do find there's little to no variation between the songs but I can't help but just really enjoy this album.
38. Confidence Man - Confident Music for Confident People

One of the dance records of the year. Whilst it …

Live Review: Our Girl at The Sunflower Lounge (12/10/18)

Our Girl are probably my favourite band around at the moment, their debut album "Stranger Today" is one of very few to ever receive a 10/10 from us which I think it fully deserves and it's been in constant rotation for me ever since. The dynamics on the album which perfectly utilise lead singer and guitarist, Soph Nathan's soft, harmonic vocals but also give her the opportunity to really stretch herself into a grungier, heavy rock voice which expertly intertwine with the phenomenal tunes like "Level", "Being Around" and "Boring".


The band announced on Twitter the day before the gig that they were doing a free instore show at Paul Smith in The Mailbox so obviously I had to go along to that... which also meant missing one of my lectures but hey, what's more important here? The band set up along some chairs in the shop and played an acoustic set containing songs like "I Really Like It", "Two Life" and "In My He…
