Top 50 Songs of 2016: 25-1

The final 25 (and top) favourite songs of 2016. I’ve obsessively listened to these tracks over and over and over. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.  Continue reading

Top 50 Songs of 2016: 50-26

So, it starts with my top fifty songs of 2016, the reason I brought it back this year is because there were so many songs that I obsessed over that were released as singles or on EPs/albums that didn’t make it in my top albums list. Dig in! Continue reading

Top 30 Albums of 2015: 30-16

2015, overall, has been a year of slight disappointment when it came to music. There’s been a few releases I highly anticipated but ended up being a tad disappointed in, but that hasn’t stopped some rays of sun coming through. So here it is, the first half of my end-of-year-list for releases. A lot of these ended up being EPs for some reason.  Continue reading

Catch-Up Reviews #6: Sleaford Mods, Chelsea Wolfe, Krallice…

Sleaford Mods – Key Markets

Sleaford Mods have had an interesting rise to popularity since the release of their 2014 album “Divide And Exit”, an album that hooked a lot of listeners in with Andrew Fearn’s simple, no-nonsense instrumentals and Jason Williamson’s equally vicious vocals and lyrics. The Mods are a duo of their time, seething at current politicians and the attitudes that cripples a steady life in the UK, and it’s pretty much impossible not to relate to the rants in some way. Setting the bar so high for themselves, the question of “how will they follow this up?” was a big one.  Continue reading

Catch-Up Reviews #5: Squarepusher, Moodie Black, Faith No More…

Rich Reviewz is coming back. Here’s some releases I’ve been enjoying recently for you to wrap your ears around…

Squarepusher – Damogen Furies

Squarepusher is Tom Jenkinson, a man who has pushed the boundaries of electronic music as far as possible since its inception in 1995. The list of his work and its variety is impressive for any musician of any genre and with each release, the direction he takes is completely unpredictable which is exactly what’s happened with “Damogen Furies” once again.  Continue reading

Top 30 Albums of 2014: 30-16

Here’s the first half of the top 30 albums of 2014! While this year didn’t impress me anywhere near as much as last year, there were still dozens of great releases, especially in the second-half of the year. I guess as well, since this year has been very quiet for the Rich Reviewz blog (for personal reasons – 2015 will be the return of regular posts), you can see all the albums I’d wish I could have spoken about.

My TEMPLES FESTIVAL 2014 Experience

This is the second (and final) attempt at reviewing the weekend because the original draft reached 1,250 words by the time I covered Electric Wizard – the headliner of the first night – and I know no-one loves music enough to read an essay. So here’s my run at a brief cover of the weekend, to make it less painful for you and me.  Continue reading
