The Banned Reviews Takeover 03/03/13

We hope you enjoyed more great underground and unsigned music.  It pressed lots of nice buttons in our brains, like a kid hitting lots of red buttons.  The end result was plenty of amazing sounds from artists and producers from across the UK, and even one band from Chicago.  AudioWhore’s album is just out and a bit good! Meanwhile we’re expecting great new material from Atlantica soon.  We hope their tracks got you excited!  Hear it again on Friday at 6.30 or listen now for great independent music.  Do you like what you hear?  Any requests?  Email bannedreviews@live.co.uk.

We liked this one a lot – even the Christmas records sounded awesome.  This is a very rare thing, bah humbug and such!  Among the great local music this week was the Live In the Living Room Christmas single.  This is a collaboration from lots of Kent artists covering Do They Know It’s Christmas?, all in the name of Meningitis awareness.  Download it here and show your support for Meningitis awareness, and get an ace version of a Christmas classic!

Listen again Friday at 6.30 for the hour again, packed full of amazing Kent bands!  Listen 24/7 for great independent music.  Here’s who we played:

26/11/12: Artemis Redeemer and Fish Tank

Two big tracks for you from two amazing bands (we’ll be honest, we couldn’t decide)!

Starting things off it’s Artemis Redeemer!  A group of solid musicians, they’ve come together to make plenty of loud and awesome noises for your ears.  Artemis Redeemer are starting off big, hitting fans with a new E.P, Rumours, nearly as soon as they hit fans with themselves.  From Rumours the track Something More is doing nice things to our insides.  Loud, punishing and unrelenting this is a serious slice of metal!  It’s great.  Download it and the whole Rumours E.P here for free.

Like this?  Try Lynchpyn.

We saw the Fish Tank over the weekend and they pressed some buttons in our collective music brain, it was great!  Fish Tank make fast paced and big sounding indie music with some great lyrics.  Not only this but their E.P has a genius name, Henry.  The whole thing is all kinds of good but we kinda like Ginny.  Big group vocals start the track and a joyous guitar tone give this track a great vibe, not to mention some crashing drums.  The Henry E.P is yours again for free here, unless your feeling generous then you can give them what you think it’s worth.

If you like this try the Canadian band The Zolas.

There’s one more thing we can’t get enough off, American Rapper Kilo Kish.  Great soulful electronic backing with nice flows and words.  Check her E.P out here.
