Don’t hate me for this, but I thought Lemonade by Beyonce was a bit shit! I know that most »taste makers« raved about it in their end of year Best Of lists, declaring it a work of Godlike genius. Yet, somehow, the overproduced pop on offer left me a little cold. Perhaps it’s just me, but the whims of a multi-millionaire pop star just didn’t resonate. By JOHN BITTLES

Now that the year 2016 has come to an end it is the perfect time to sit back and reflect on what has been and gone. While it is hard to do this without lingering on the horrors which dominated the headlines, (Brexit, the rise of Trump, the passing of Prince, Bowie, Cohen, etc), it is important to remember that great things did happen over the last twelve months.

With the Christmas season upon us it seems apt to reflect on some of the great records which have recently entered our lives. While the fact that Clean Bandit have been Number 1 in the UK sinlges chart for what seems like years may have led you to give up entirely on the humble single, it’s important to remember that it can still be a creative outlet of note.

Going by the number of overly cheery adverts on the telly I think it is safe to assume that Christmas is on the way. With everyone from family to friends willing to embrace this over-commercialized rubbish by demanding presents from yourself make the break from the slimy claw of capitalism this year by simply spending your hard-earned money on yourself.

Reflections Of A Strange Existence: New Singles Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Sometimes it can seem that buying singles has become a bit of a dying art! In the age of downloads, people seem to want throwaway songs to play on their iPhone rather than something they can actually touch and feel. Here in Belfast for instance the last place that would regularly get in new dance 12inches has given it up because there simply wasn’t the demand.By JOHN BITTLES

Supergroups don’t work! We all know this, right? At times it can seem as if forming a supergroup is nothing more than an excuse to get together with some mates, dick around, consume copious amounts of drugs, and issue the results of a farting contest on deluxe vinyl while wanking on in interviews about how you have created ‚great art‘. This need not always be the case though! By JOHN BITTLES

I know I may sound overly romantic saying this, but a great album should have the power to erase daily stresses and strains. With world affairs and current politics seemingly more depressing than ever we need our creative arts to step up and remove us, however temporarily, from the horrors of everyday life. This week I will be highlighting some of the LPs which have accomplished this feat by stealing my time and creating an addictive craving in my very soul. By JOHN BITTLES

Ode To A Feral Child: An Interview With Schakal Records

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

When I first heard the Somber Clarity EP by AntiAlias, the very first release on new Berlin based label Schakal Records, it felt as if I had discovered a brand new friend. Deeply hypnotic, trance-tinged, sexy and propulsive it leapt right out of the speakers and into my heart. Backed up by a long, percussive remix by Midas 104 & Jonas Saalbach, the record seemed to make June 2015 a great time to be alive. By JOHN BITTLES
