‘Digital Druglord’ has been a highly anticipated album from the independent artist Blackbear. With his side project of mansionz releasing their first album, Blackbear has been pretty busy in the music industry recently and all the hard work has seemed to pay off. Although, a lot of the album is similar to previous songs of his, there is still an evolution in this album where you hear things a little different to what you might expect.
It’s no secret that I love Twenty One Pilots. But this show blew me away, last time I was surrounded by tall people and couldn’t see much, this time I was sat in the balcony with a perfect view and I don’t think life could ever get better. As usual the O2 Academy Birmingham was lovely, the staff were incredibly friendly and the security guards did a fantastic job of looking after the crowd.
I first saw Jeremy Loops last November when he opened for Twenty One Pilots and I fell in love with him. His show was amazing, so when I found out he was coming back to Oxford I couldn’t miss it. It did not disappoint at all. The Bullingdon was a lovely venue; the staff were wonderful and the small size made for a brilliant intimate gig.
Panic! At The Disco have quite the reputation when it comes to live performances, I knew the show was going to be amazing and I was not disappointed at all. The show at the famous O2 Academy Brixton was to celebrate the release of their latest album, ‘Death Of A Bachelor’ which is released on January 15th, and saw them playing their first show of 2016 and some of their new songs for the first time.
South African musician Jeremy Loops combines classic folk with beats you’d find in the top charts, this modern folk artist has already made waves in South Africa and I’m honestly surprised he hasn’t over here in the UK. He has a beautiful voice, combined with catchy and moving melodies, you’ll find yourself falling in love with his music. Although we aren’t able to download the album at the moment in the UK (although according to Facebook, Jeremy is looking at a November release) we can listen to ‘Down South’ on repeat, and I am perfectly fine with that.

Although this album may not be a brand new release, I couldn’t not write a review. For some strange reason I have only just discovered the brilliance of Twenty One Pilots, I’m just glad I finally have because they really are amazing. Quirky and individual, their sound stands out from others and really can’t be labelled. There isn’t anyone, as far as I know, making music like this. I feel it’s my duty to make sure as many people as possible listen to their music, it’s something you can’t miss out on. Continue reading “Blurryface – Twenty One Pilots”
