    A Celebration: R.E.M.'s Monster

    by Tom Clayton

    This month sees the 20th anniversary of R.E.M.'s Monster. Perennially seen as the misfit in the band's back catalogue, it represented an electrifying return to the rock of their I.R.S. years after the unprecedented success of 1992's Automatic for the People. [read more]

  • A Celebration: Arcade Fire's Funeral

    A Celebration: Arcade Fire's Funeral

    by Daniel Griffiths

    It’s been a decade since Arcade Fire released Funeral to the world. Just think on that for a minute, don’t let your mind wander onto anything else Funeral or Arcade Fire related, just that though. Funeral is ten years old. Scary thought, isn’t it that it’s been a companion in our lives for that long and it always seems new. [read more]

    A Celebration: Portishead's Dummy

    by Daniel Griffiths

    There are some albums that can define a year or a season, or some that define a scene, a movement or a whole genre. It's very rare for an album to define a whole city; its ethos, its character and its culture. Dummy is that kind of album. [read more]

    Gifted: Mothica

    by The 405

    I first stumbled across Brooklyn-based Mothica when one of her tweets was RT'd into my timeline - which admittedly doesn't sound too romantic in the great book of musical discoveries, but this is 2014 after all. The tweet was funny. I like funny. This led me to her Soundcloud page, which led to this one song, which led to another, which led to another. I was trapped. It's all about her voice. I can't get enough. I needed to know more. [read more]

    5 Essential Cassette Store Day Releases

    by Tom Jowett

    After a successful inaugural year in 2013, Cassette Store Day returns this weekend with an impressive list of over 100 releases. Unlike Record Store Day, the major labels are thankfully not involved (sorry 1D fans), and the list is a proper treasure-trove of potentially undiscovered new music. [read more]

    by The 405
