Hot Magenta – Long Time Coming

‘Hot Magenta’ have their EP ‘Long Time Coming’ up on Spotify for you to check out.

Featuring groove infused tracks from the good old years of rock, all while playing off a honey sweet female vocalist against some of the dirtiest gravelly backup singers.

‘Better Off Alone’ is the stand-out song here, every note is in its place. Whipping out some nice solos, guitar duels, thick bass lines. It’s a song that happily surprises you with another verse and chorus when you expected it to end.

Until we find a way to travel back in time, and you don’t want to listen to washed up old musicians who are past their prime, your best bet is to give this EP a listen, then another listen.


Moghul – selftitled

‘Moghul’ released their self-titled album on September the 1st, 2012. Even though this album only has 2 songs on it, each song is an absolute marathon.

‘Dead Empires’ starts out a bluesy heavy rock affair which turns nasty along the way. The change is slow as the guitars and drums get louder and more aggressive and the vocals turn from gravelly to abrasive.

‘Hidden Hand’ once again slowly wanders through different genres and styles, touching on psychedelic, desert, drone and stoner.

This album is probably best appreciated on vinyl while wearing flares but if thats not possible, it’ll still sound good.
