Live Review: The Black Crowes w/ Jim Jones All Stars (support) [Apollo Manchester] May 2024
Soundsphere magazine
by John Hayhurst
5h ago
The greatest ever rock n roll band in the world (according to this reviewer), just played 4 nights of practically perfect music – where were you? Words and Photos – John Hayhurst Ticket prices are extortionate these days and these were £70 each unless you were quick and got on the Live Nation Concert promotion where they reduced to a more palatable £25. Which would account for the Apollo in Manchester on a midweek night being 2/3rds full. This was the first of 4 nights I was to have with this band, I was indeed going to the whole tour as I normally do. This was something like the 120th time s ..read more

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 review – Slay your demons
Soundsphere magazine
by Sam Smith
5h ago
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 puts players back into the role of the Celtic warrior Senua as she embarks on a new quest. However, does this new dive into the world of Norse gods and psychological anguish match the beloved original? The first Hellblade game was a breath of fresh air for the third-person adventure genre, telling a story that blurred the lines between the supernatural and the psychological. This is as the protagonist, Senua, struggled to complete her journey and survive her demons – both real and imaginary. The original game featured combat that borrowed from the Soulslike sub-genre ..read more

Jon Johnson from Touch The Buffalo opens up about the band’s influences on ‘Bodhicitta’, and more! S] Hello!! How are you today? T] I am doing great today! It’s a hot sunny Spring Day in Virginia. S] What is motivating the band right now, outside of music – think specific people, and places – even movies, for example?  T] Hmm. Well, every once in a while I see an interview with 50 Cent, and he drops some wisdom for artists coming up, and that helps me a lot. Right now we’re just driven by a desire to be heard. We believe in our music, and the power music has to energize people. So we’re ..read more

Album Review: Billie Eilish – Hit Me Hard and Soft
Soundsphere magazine
by Cheri Faulkner
1d ago
I had a distinct feeling that Billie Eilish’s new album would be a double album. This might seem like a tinfoil hat theory at first, but please stick with me. Billie has notoriously dyed her hair to coincide with her album releases. From the bright green and black trademark that accompanied When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (black cover, green disc) to the blonde that went along with 2020’s tan-coloured Happier Than Ever, she commits her all to the promotional periods of these releases. This time around, she went very public with a red and black style that doesn’t seem to have found a h ..read more

Soundsphere magazine

3d ago
French metalcore band Landmvrks joined forces with Ohio state metalcore rockers The Devil Wears Prada in an astounding 30-day run called the ‘Creature Tour’ that started off in Zurich and is set to end in Tilburg. The inspiration for this tour name comes from the recent single that Landmvrks released in January named ‘Creature’. Accompanying them on this stacked lineup is the Manchester 5-piece band Guilt Trip and another Ohio-originated group named Like Moths To Flames. On the 12th of May this year, the Creature Tour was brought to Manchester’s very own O2 Ritz, a favourable venue recent ..read more

Ducks Ltd. UK tour starts tonight, stream new single “When You’re Outside”
Soundsphere magazine
by Callie Petch

If you like your indie fast, jangly, and with guitar strings which sound immaculate when playing riffs, you should really be listening to Ducks Ltd.  I first heard of the Canadian duo when they opened for illuminati hotties at Leeds in 2022 and proceeded to power through almost their entire discography within half-an-hour.  They were tight, they were hooky, they were great fun; I immediately copped their 2021 debut LP Modern Fiction afterwards.  And this week, they’re kicking off a UK headline tour of their own in support of the excellent sophomore album ..read more

Elephant Kind share new single ‘Louder’
Soundsphere magazine
by Archie Jackson
5d ago
Back home in Indonesia, Elephant Kind are big enough to fill arenas and play shows with the likes of Franz Ferdinand and The xx but Elephant Kind challenged themselves to find a broader international audience. The band started again in London as complete unknowns and almost two years later, they’re firmly rising which continues with today’s release of their new single ‘Louder’. ‘Louder’ is a defining moment for Elephant Kind. Its shimmering alt-pop is rich with luminous synths and a flood of indie exuberance, with the distinctive soulful expression of Bam Mastro’s vocals ..read more
