'WE ARE' impressed and inspired by Lucy Spraggan's new album

Posted by Editor on 19 April 2015

This time Spraggan's going it alone, and there's something in the choice of name for her own label, CTRL - about seizing the ownership of creative choice, production, collaboration and marketing.

Posted by katlife on 17 October 2014

It was a chilly autumn night in London yesterday and the rain was teeming down. I had tickets to see Australian folk/blues duo Hussy Hicks, but as I peered out the door of my favourite lesbian bar in Soho, the idea of schlepping up to Pentonville Rd seemed less and less appealing.

Posted by Editor on 22 September 2014

Allergic to Water is moody and low key, intriguingly producing a Vinyl-sound via digital recording. DiFranco has never been afraid to take chances nor speak (sing) her mind. DiFranco’s new studio album, Allergic To Water, is another bold accomplishment and its music is her most subtle.

Peace's decision to leave Waterloo Road, and concentrate on the second album now was driven by a desire to give the fans what they want.
