Blood Red Shoes are an alternative rock duo in Brighton, England consisting of Laura-Mary Carter and Steven Ansell. The brilliant and yet somewhat underrated band have shapeshifted their style during their decade and a half career. Mortality, psychosis, neurosis, sex, dreams, the future, alienation, failure, escape, mass celebration, hope. regret, taking things too far……..and Fleetwood Mac. Following the success of their fifth studio album, ‘Get Tragic’ released earlier in 2019, they will kick out in Mad Cool 2020.
It is a little selfish to say this, but I hope that Adam Mcllwee’s bitterness lasts for a long time so that we can carry on enjoying the way he channels it: by making songs. He lets off steam from time to time by releasing albums under the alias Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, but the pain doesn’t go away. He has made a way of life from it since he set up the GOTHBOICLIQUE collective at the beginning of the decade to lay down the foundations of emo-trap, without intending to. It is a movement that goes way beyond the musical: an impressive battalion of kids all around the world have started to understand his pain (and, therefore also to soothe it) thanks to the sorrowful rhymes of WPSE.
Tamino is a Belgian songwriter of Egyptian descent causing a stir in Europe and the Middle East alike. His luscious dark melodies have drawn comparisons to Jeff Buckley, Tom Waits and Dave Gahan and drawn the attention of superstar musicians such as Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood, who became a fan first, then a collaborator adding bass to Indigo Nights from Tamino’s debut album ‘Amir’, before eventually becoming a member of Tamino’s live band.
Shortly after the 2011 death of Clarence Clemons, the E Street Band’s longtime saxophonist and Bruce Springsteen’s right-hand man, his nephew, Jake Clemons, was asked to step into the big man’s shoes.

Nigeria’s Burna Boy who, unlike many of his peers, is a master at not only blending sounds of West Africa, but also incorporating elements of dancehall and hip-hop to create afro-fusion, a sub-genre that he’s found himself the face of. Though he’d been actively working at this meshing since his first mixtape, 2011’s Burn Notice, his work reached new heights with 2018’s Outside.
In the past few years, Afro-fusion singer Burna Boy has gone from Nigerian superstar to international sensation. With the recent release of his fourth studio album, African Giant, the Nigerian singer born Damini Ogulu has delivered a swaggering, electric, and passion-fueled statement that lives up to the towering persona being put forth at its outset.
Bambara‘s music exists in shadows. Since their early noise-rock sounds on 2010′s Dog Ear Days, the Athens, Georgia band (now based in Brooklyn) have cultivated a dense and ominous form of post-punk. Their latest, Shadow On Everything expands upon that sensibility with songs that bring in a broader range of instrumentation than on any of their previous albums (horn sections, eerie synthetic choirs), which reflects the band’s growth in a more logistical sense: They’ve expanded to a quintet when touring, broadening their capabilities and allowing them to showcase an even more dynamic presence.
