2015 END OF YEAR LISTS

Six of Silent Radio’s contributors have complied a list of their favourite albums, tracks and gigs of 2015. Plus a full month by month break down from Zach Roddis of his year listening to music from the DIY scene. When they came in there were quite a few that have passed me by, so if […]

2015 END OF YEAR – MAX PILLEY

ALBUMS Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp a Butterfly The album that the modern world has been waiting for. The major records to have captured the public consciousness in recent years have been either self-important ego riots (hello Kanye) or tepid retro-pop (Adele, Taylor Swift). Kendrick is interested in being heard by as many as possible, […]

2015 END OF YEAR – RICHARD WALKER

ALBUMS Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell Hands down the most beautiful album of the year. Sufjan’s first album since the bombast of Age of Adz is a rumination on the death of his mother, and it’s one of the most moving collection of songs I’ve ever heard. I struggled to get through it without […]

2015 END OF YEAR – PADDY KINSELLA

ALBUMS Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp a Butterfly These Walls Sufjan Stevens – Carrie and Lowell No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross Beach house – Depression Cherry Space Song Bjork – Vulnicura Lionsong Grimes – Art Angels Realiti Roisin Murphy – Hairless Toys Evil Eyes Hot Chip – Why Make Sense Huarache Lights Courtney Barnett […]

2015 END OF YEAR – ANDY VINE

ALBUMS Blanck Mass: Dumb Flesh Alternately transcendental and crushing, Blanck Mass’ second album takes the abrasive ambience of his debut and marries them to stuttering glitch and punishing beats. Powerful, throbbing sound disorientates, blurring into high contrast synths and ravey stabs, walls of droning noise, exotic rhythms and twitchy samples. It’s aggressive, it’s blissed out, […]

2015 END OF YEAR – JOE CURRAN

ALBUMS Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp a Butterfly It’s topping polls left, right and centre and for good reason. An enormous, sprawling hip hop opus that captures the grim reality of black America, wealth and fame. It’s far from the easiest listen, but the rewards are there for the giving TPAB the attention it thoroughly […]

END OF YEAR 2015 – BOBBY COLCOMBE

ALBUMS Chastity Belt – Time to Go Home The Seattle band’s second LP is a brilliant testament to drunken mayhem and pondering self-reflection. Sounding a little like an all female version of DIIV. It is lyrically very open to confronting past regrets whilst, at the same time, feeling sedated to them and looking forward. Chiming […]

WHO ARE YA? / 君達は誰?THE PIQNIC

From time to time, one of our contributors will recommend an artist/band they think deserves  your attention. No record labels, PR companies, bands or band’s management will ever have made these recommendations. It is simply one music fan putting their taste on the line in the hope of sharing good music. The questions are intended […]

INTERVIEW: FRUIT BOMB

Last night, Fruit Bomb, Fallowfield’s very own Garage Pop band, were picked by The Skinny to play alongside Menace Beach, Weirds and False Advertising. This is just part of the recent acclaim the band has started to receive – they have just streamed their first single ‘Goin Home’ on the NME. This hype might well […]
