The Genius Of… You In Reverse by Built To Spill

With great songs and guitar interplay to rival the likes of Marquee Moon, Built To Spill’s collaborative 2006 return to form, You In Reverse, is a hook-laden gift that keeps on giving for guitarists.

The Genius Of… The La’s, The La’s

Led by the flawed genius of their perfectionist frontman Lee Mavers, The La’s released a timeless self-titled debut in 1990 that predicted the whole Britpop movement.

The Big Listen: Bright Eyes – Down In The Weeds, Where The World Once Was

After nearly a decade's absence Conor Oberst has got the band back together. The first Bright Eyes album since 2011 is an unflinching exploration of grief, loss and keeping on keeping on as life crumbles around you. We'd expect nothing less.
