Rapid Reviews – Lana Del Rey – Born To Die

On a personal level you could certainly understand Lana Del Rey if she disagreed with the epigram "The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about." It's difficult to think of a singer who has had to endure such a vitriolic backlash before having even released an album and it must... Continue Reading →

The Von Pip Musical Express Podcast – January 2012

So let's recap ! Brighton's polka dot 60's uber girl-group revisionists  The Pipettes were undoubtedly  great fun... Continue Reading →

VPME Track Of The Day “Carver’s Kicks” by Straylings.

Now this is fantastic. “Carver’s Kicks” by Straylings is an epic, dark, portentous sounding slice of widescreen drama.  Consisting of Bahraini/Austrian songwriter Dana Zeera and London born guitarist Oliver Drake Straylings have already received high praise for their debut Ep  released last June . On this track the sound recalls the cinematic Alt/Goth country which... Continue Reading →
