It’s the first day of May, the sun is taking the day off work, and the Friday feeling is nowhere to be found (admittedly, because I thought it was Thursday). Bards clearly knew this day was coming and came prepared with a little Mancunian treat for us all– today, they released their new single, ‘Barricades’. Continue reading “Single: Barricades by Bards”
I absolutely love the mix we’ve got going on in the NOU playlist this week! You might have already seen me talking on Insta about how much I love Heart On Your Sleeve by Hushtones – it’s been on repeat in my house all week, and I couldn’t help but squeeze it in between some pure, uncensored rock and roll from The Shivas and The Snuts, where it fits perfectly to start off a cracking midweek playlist with lots of local Manc goodness with a sprinkle of Liverpool sass!
Can you believe it? The week has flown by, and it’s that time again. This playlist starts with possibly one of the greatest intros ever written, and calls for full volume from track one… Let’s call it a warm up for the big Neighbourhood Festival happening this weekend in Manchester (which I’m incredibly excited for!)

I’m not sure whether it’s because I’ve been drumming to a lot of old school Franz Ferdinand this week, but this Tuesday’s playlist is very disco beat heavy + I LOVE IT. I can’t stop dancing around the room to The C33s, Sugarstone and Red Rum Club tracks, so thought I’d share some of the joy!

You know the ‘Don’t Believe in Guilty Pleasures’ playlist drill by now; follow Dave Grohl’s example and ‘if you f**king like something, like it.’
All the tunes you love to love, whether you’re getting ready for a night of dancing on tables at Mojos, or hiding from this cold weather under a blanket, with a takeaway and a glass of wine (I’m getting to the age where this is becoming a difficult choice).
