NO - El Prado - album review

NO - El Prado (Arts And Crafts)

CD / Download / Vinyl (released April) 

Released 18th February 

It seems a long time since NO's excellent Don't Worry You'll Be Here Forever EP, released late in 2011, and a follow-up single What's Your Name, but as El Prado clearly demonstrates it's been time well spent perfecting their debut album El Prado.

Reverend And The Makers - 32 - album review

Reverend And The Makers - Thirty Two (Cooking Vinyl)

CD / Vinyl / Download / Pledge

Due out 24th February

Reverend And The Makers were one of the surprises of 2012. Dismissed by the press and radio as a one-album wonder and front man Jon McClure often ridiculed for his outspoken views and his interaction with fans, their @Reverend_Makers album was an unexpected success and they sold out venues across the country.
