Sheep,Dog&Wolf is 17-year old Daniel McBride from New Zealand. Now, age is indeed but a number, but when you’ve read all I have to say in this review and you – hopefully – listen to his music, you’ll read my opening sentence once more for a bit of startling emphasis. Just 17 years old. Comparable to other alternative folk-rock artists like Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver and Beirut, Sheep,Dog&Wolf‘s Ablutophobia EP is an absolutely stunning array of organic instrumentation and sheer passion.

This past Saturday night, 19th March, I was in attendance for the London leg of Submotion Orchestra‘s UK tour at the Jazz Cafe in London. The venue was absolutely rammed full of people – the signs outside said “SOLD OUT” and they weren’t lying either!
There was a lot of hype recently when promo for the track All Yours began to do the rounds and the hype was for good reason. Genuinely the first new piece of music I’d heard for a while that … [read more]
The long-awaited Gully Foil EP from Shankles is now available from our very own Jus Like Music Records as a FREE download! Sighting a variety of alternative electronic influences – from Four Tet to Clark to Nostalgia 77 to Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and beyond – the UK’s Shankles weaves a sinister yet uplifting mix of twisted samples and dark breaks.

The mysterious Berlin-based electronic producer Klaar currently has his fantastic remix of One In A Million by the late Aaliyah available for FREE download via Bandcamp. On a drag/witch house/haunted house (whatever you want to call the sub-genre) tip, it takes the original and adds a hard hitting, yet moody as hell, angle. Originally only available via YouTube at the end of last year, Klaar has decided now to show some new year generousity and give it away – likely to be limited to … [read more]
