The Kut [Interview]

The Kut PromoWith the Kut’s brand new EP Rock Paper Scissors set to drop in just a few weeks’ time, TMMP caught up with Kut vocalist/guitarist Maha to talk happiness, passion, psychology, and what 2015 holds for this inventive alt-rock trio…

Hey – thanks for taking the time to do this! So…what makes you happy?

Hey, thanks for having us for a chat. Wow, that’s a tough starter. If I said I don’t know, would that be going in too deep?

I know lots of things I think will make me happy, but they are all short lived and then followed by Continue reading

Therapy? – ‘Disquiet’ [Review]

Screen shot 2015-03-21 at 16.55.26I love this album. It’s dark, it’s dirty, it’s fucked up – and beyond that, its sheer depth and authenticity was enough to win me over from the opening bars of first track Still Hurts. There’s no trace of fakery or posturing here. None at all. Fucking hell.

Therapy?’s latest LP is stuffed full of Continue reading

Live Review: Cavalier / Bridges / Red House Glory [Live Review – The Boileroom, Guildford, 25/2/2015]

Although I enjoyed Red House Glory‘s Foo Fighters-esque radio-friendly rock songs and decent vocal harmonies, and Bridges deserve recognition for their frontman’s emotive vocals and their unorthodox harmony guitars, I have a few things to get off my chest not only about Cavalier, but bands who come from a music-school background in general.

Tigercub / Kagoule / The Tens [Live Review – The Boileroom, Guildford, 23/2/2015]

tigercubAlthough The Tens do possess plenty of heart, balls, and swagger, they’re currently still at the stage where their instruments own them, rather than the other way around. With more practice (as in “Spending more time beating the living crap out of their instruments” rather than “Studiously woodshedding a path to NoSoulVille”), the Tens will eventually become serious hard-rocking badasses. For now, though, they still need more time to develop.

Kagoule started off sounding like Placebo’s musical test-tube baby (a really cool move) before Continue reading

The Kut – ‘Rock Paper Scissors’ [Review]

Artwork- The Kut RPSThe Kut have really won me over with their fresh and epic blend of assorted alt-rock stylings. When they hit their creative and original stride, the Kut look set to do some serious damage to any stuck-in-the-mud traditionalist’s sanity; but on this EP, the harsh truth is that Continue reading

Hawk Eyes – ‘Everything Is Fine’ [Review]

hawk eyes everything is fineOpening with Tom Morello-esque volume swells and kicking into a raw and stately Karnivool-style groove, The Trap is one of my favourite scene-setters in some time. I knew Everything Is Fine would be sick, but Continue reading
