The Art Of Standing Still: Record Reviews

Bittles' Magazine/Platte

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

Nothing stands still. Except for my good friend Stand Still Jones of course, but that’s another story. This is why I have decided to re-jig my singles reviews. Once a month, (or whenever I can be bothered) I will be highlighting some of the records which have been making me go all gooey-eyed, or demanding repeated plays. Most will be new, some will be old. Hopefully, everything included will raise a cheer. A review by JOHN BITTLES

Stage Dives And White Noise: An Interview With Cajsa Siik

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

Plus Win Guest List Passes To See Cajsa Siik Support Mitski In Hamburg On June 16th.
In a world of three second attention spans, information overload, Spotify playlists, and more new music seeing the light of day than ever before, it is becoming ever harder for new artists to find success. To make yourself heard above the noise it seems that you need either an over-abundance of talent or a top notch marketing team.  Luckily for Swedish native Cajsa Siik, one listen is enough to convince that she is an artist with talent to spare!

Polaar Grooves For Icy Teens: An Interview With Maud Geffray

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

As one half of the respected electronic duo Scratch Massive, Maud Geffray has long been a vital part of the Paris underground music scene. Formed back in 2003 with Sébastien Chenut, Scratch Massive are perhaps best known for their electro-tinged take on pop and house. Since then, classic records such as Nuit De Rêve and Enemy & Lovers, together with high profile collaborations with Jimmy Somerville and Chloé have helped raise the band’s profile around the world.

Weaving Genres, And Roughing Up Beats: New Album Review

Bittles' Magazine/Platte

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

Is it just me, or was Record Store Day 2017 a tiny bit crap? The last time I was surrounded by that amount of middle-aged, balding men, reeking of sweat, I had walked into a strip-club by mistake. So, rather than relive the horrors of that day, I will dispense with the waffle and dive straight into the reviews. By JOHN BITTLES

Concrete Deserts & Outerspace Blues: New Album Reviews

Bittles' Magazine

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

There have been some pretty huge albums released over the past few weeks. From the return of Depeche Mode and The Jesus And Mary Chain, the schizoid pop of Goldfrapp and the electro funk japery of, er, Jamiroquai spring 2017 seems to be the season for massive LPs. But what of the fantastic albums by artists which aren’t heavily advertised, or don’t command reviews in the broadsheets? By JOHN BITTLES
