Album Reviews

'Horizons 'is the Danish/Swedish collective known as Black Light White Light’s 3rd album, created as they admit, slowly, deep underground in a studio in Copenhagen. The genesis of the album started back in 2015, since when they were looking for another angle into their music which they achieved with new drummer Viktor Hober, and the liberal use of pulsing keyboards.

Calling your band the Amazing is either foolhardy, leaving yourself open to ridicule or perhaps shows a justified self belief in your own talents. Thankfully, these elegant Swedish psych-rockers more than live up to their name.

I remember a discussion on a Springsteen fan forum alleging that Bruce is more popular in Norway than anywhere else in the world – as evidenced by concert ticket sales and the number of households that own a copy of 'The Seeger Sessions'. The point was made that the smalltown America that Bruce sings about has many similarities with isolated towns in Norway – far away from anywhere. Very pretty, for sure, but also a place that adventurous souls may long to escape from.

Based in Sheffield, The Silver Darlings are a collection of musicians playing the songs of writer and guitarist Andy Whitehouse. With the release of ‘Something of the Sound’ the band have released a warming album for what could possibly be a chilly Easter.
