Album Reviews: Disclosure ‘Caracal’

The second album from duo Disclosure, packed with hits such as ‘Omen’, ‘Magnets’ and ‘Hourglass’ each track is as great as the next and it’s steady progression from Settle. For further detailed review go to Album Reviews page


Disclosure @Reading (R+L) Festival 2016

Not long finished watching Disclosure headline the main stage (alongside The Foals) at the Reading (R+L) Festival via the red button service, it was a great hour spent watching them. It was amazing listening to them perform the hits from both their Settle and Caracal albums including When a Fire Starts to Burn, Holding On including one of their recent new singles Boss. They were joined on-stage by new artists Brandon Reilly for another new song Moving Mountains which sounded fantastic, seriously that guy’s got some vocals on him. They ended their set on their hit debut track Latch which is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.  Over on the NME/Radio 1 Stage American duo Twenty One Pilots performed set their and I have to admit that I’ve never really heard any of their music till now; I have missed a lot. I have to say they did an impressive cover of House of Pain’s Jump Around and got to crowd surf.


Though I’ve said it before I’ll say it again; this is one reason why BBC3 was brilliant as a TV CHANNEL!!!

T in The Park 2016: highlights

Today was the start of the infamous musical mecca of T in The Park and this time from its new location at Strathallan. With coverage presented by the incredible Scotswoman Edith Bowman on BBC4 (glad she’s not left the BBC) saw today’s highlights jam pack with live performances by Disclosure, Fun Lovin Criminal, The Courteeners and Jamie XX, all absolutely incredible. There was a new band on called Frightened Criminals who, I have to say, where just amazing. It was Alesso who stole the stole as the main headlining act with his electrifying set. Also there was an aftershow gig featuring a new duo called Roderigo Y Gabriela who were really good.
