James – All I’m Saying

James – All I’m Saying

For such a long time I gave my heart to someone I thought understood me. Someone I believed was the same as me. I used to proclaim, loudly and often, of how much I loved him. Can I be honest with you? I think I said it because I didn't know what else to say. [...]

Bad Luck Party – Miss June

Bad Luck Party – Miss June

"Anarchy can only be about a girl" A riot. Not exclusively a teenage riot but, instead, a riot for the age and for all ages. A blistering fusion of noise and melody, of rage and some form of romance, of chaos and beauty. In short "Bad Luck Party" is the stuff that dreams are made [...]
