the hunt

For 40 years the Albert Hall in Manchester, a grade II listed Wesleyan chapel, has laid dormant and unnoticed. That is until Trof, the people behind two other fantastic venues in the city the Gorilla and the Deaf Institute, renovated the dilapidated building in to a stunning music hall. When the chance to see one of my favourite artists Bonobo at this stunning new venue came along, the tickets…

BECK - morning phase - Album Review

Adam reviews Morning Phase by Beck on THE HUNT #music

the hunt

This album has caused quite a stir since coming out in February. It was released in very limited numbers on vinyl and has quickly become a collectable item. Many have appeared on eBay and some stores sold out just on pre orders alone. I only managed to get a copy myself because a colleague at work ordered one online as a fail safe in case he couldn’t get one in store only for both avenues to come…

XX▲N▲XX - “Stay”

Listen to “Stay”, a new song from the emerging Polish duo, XXANAXX #music


XX▲N▲XX, a polish duo based in Warsaw, may not be a popular name in the chillwave/indie scene but “Stay” may change all of that.

This track adds a new perspective to the emerging musical style of soulful vocals layered on a trance-like beat, much like music from The Weeknd, or BANKS. This duo also has some pretty solid song-writing skills too. Hopefully, we can expect a debut album from them…

The Language Don’t Bother Me Anyway


There’s a popular saying. a smile is the same in every language, I like to think that the same goes for music. There’s an indescribable feeling that we get when we find a perfect song. It doesn’t have to be in English, or in any other language we may speak…it’s the music that creates passion & a feeling, much like any other song I love.

#SongoftheWeek: “Chandelier” by Sia

“Chandelier” is the newest song from Sia, and the first in almost 4 years! Instead of releasing music of her own, Sia Furler has lended her talents to other pop artists like Rihanna, Britney Spears, Ne-Yo and Beyonce.

Lucky for us, she’s returning to the microphone. Late last year she announced that she was finishing up her sixth album and now, we finally have…
