REVIEW // Fazerdaze – Morningside

Her story section on Facebook, “Girl in bedroom on guitar”, implies that Fazderdaze is nothing game changing. But this 24-year old solo artist has delivered an album that sounds like it could be from a fitted-out four-piece act.

REVIEW // Cashmere Cat – 9

Falling from such great heights. Does a (cashmere) cat always land on its feet?
