Another small article I wrote that appeared in Four Four Two this year, always nice to see them crop up in the magazine.

Because we can’t all exude the happiness of an American news anchor day-in, day-out, today’s track is something a little more sombre than usual. Feel free to cry away all those missed opportunities and broken dreams as you listen, I know I did. When We Were Small are an earthy Indie-pop act from the little […]

Today’s track not only remains loyal to the recent CAPITALISATION trend on Slumped but also delivers a cool and calm brand of dreamy synth-pop that encapsulates the state of heat induced delirium that we’re all currently experiencing. GRRL PAL are a male/female duo from the Southern Hemisphere, who, like many of Slumped’s artists, can be […]

If you, like me, have been looking to relive those teenage years spent crying to Snow Patrol and watching Notting Hill, look no further, we have a saviour. AOSOON or ‘A Lot Of Something Out Of Nothing’ is the stage name of the obscenely talented Marisa Hylton and Manny Folorunso – a London duo who’s […]

As Slumped reaches 100 posts, changes domain and still boasts fewer hits than the ‘Cheeky Girls’, I think it’s time to ask the question; If something is broken, then why bother fixing it?

I know that near enough two weeks without an entry is close to unforgivable, so I shall do the best I can to redeem myself. Although it only seems like yesterday since SIAC2, May has been full to the brim with exciting and, more importantly, free music. To celebrate such a fine month, allow me […]

Usually I post a child-friendly mixture of electro-pop, indie and folk, and sometimes I don’t. Last year Seattle-based duo Sam Lachow and Raz Simone dropped the ‘5 Good Reasons’ EP to an expectant fanbase, receiving widespread acclaim for the quality of work and racking up nearly 15,000 downloads. Fast forward six months and Raz has […]

It’s been exactly a week since your last injection of Australian poppy goodness and I’m not cruel enough to make you wait any longer. Next month will see Dunsborough-based folky five-piece Needing Cherie release their second EP. In anticipation the former Western Australian Music Song of the Year winners showcased the track ‘Peter Rabbit’ through […]
