Music by Bergman: Tim Burgess

Tim Burgess inherited Mick Jagger’s rock & roll swagger and big lips before Oasis’ Liam Gallagher became famous for them. When Burgess debuted with his group The Charlatans in the late ‘80s, he looked and sounded almost interchangeable with many of the Manchester, England artists at the time but by embracing other musical styles and moving forward, he has actually outlived his contemporaries. 

The Charlatans released their 12th album, Modern Nature, in 2015 and Burgess returned to his solo career, releasing a mix album called Tim Burgess Presents

Set for release on 23rd September via Bella Union, Tim Burgess has announced his new album ‘Typical Music’.

Hit of The Week: Porij ‘Figure Skating’

PORIJ have shared their first new single of the year in ‘Figure Skating’. The Manchester outfit enjoyed a prolific 2021 with a string of well-received singles. And now they’re elevating their sound once again with the help of some 90s-inspired drum n bass influences and blissful lead vocals. It’s a hypnotic concoction that feels ravey and bittersweet all at once.
