Kele – The Boxer

Since bursting onto the scene in ’05 with the stunning Silent Alarm Bloc Party have been one of the more credible and interesting acts of the new millennium – Kele Okereke’s incisive lyrics and beautifully inimitable voice fused with the raw sounds of post-rock melodies and moods developed so skilfully by the rest of the band. Bloc Party’s latest effort, Intimacy, divided audiences with its challenging new direction: their usual […]

Crystal Castles – Crystal Castles

Take one ex-punk band frontwoman well-known in the indie music scene for chugging from vodka bottles onstage, fighting with security guards, and getting pulled offstage for climbing the stage rigging at Glastonbury, add knob-twiddling, shy-guy producer Ethan Kath famous for describing his act's live shows as a "disgrace to music", and what do you get? The insanity that is frenetic, electro-punk act Crystal Castles, and they're back with a second […]

2gi (“Two Genial Idiots”)

Influenced by electronic greats such as Orbital, Leftfield and Aphex Twin (amongst many others), 2gi (aka 'Two Genial Idiots') have produced a great selection of material. It is difficult to describe the style, but its an interesting distorted techno beats twisted with rock anthem drones with a sparkle of electro tweaks. Actually, that wasn't too difficult at all! We have added a selection of tracks to the dirtyRadio playlist rotation. […]
