Die! Die! Die! - Charm. Offensive

Die! Die! Die! is a New Zealand based post punk/noise pop trio that has had too many bassists and half a dozen albums since the early 00s.

The Waterboys - Out of All This Blue

Mike Scott and whoever makes up The Waterboys these days return with a new album, a couple of years after “Modern Blues”… an album that took things as far back as to not be considered self-plagiarism, inspired in the way that it chose to fuse all the band’s previous facets into a more cohesive aural alloy. Now, one might be mistaken about...
