New Band of the Year 2015: Paves

You may remember back at the tail end of last year that we gathered up all the New Band of the Month winners what you voted for and them into the Cultured Vultures coliseum that was New Band of the Year 2015. In the coliseum they all fought…

VOTE: Your New Band of the Year 2015

Despite some significant cause for concern in the wider world, and generally a whole lot of shit hitting a whole lot of fans, 2015 hasn't been all bad. For one thing, it's been a cracking year for new music, and we've been doing our bit to…

New Band of the Month: Lunar Twin

The gods that be, which is to say you our dear readers, have once again spoken and given the gift of a month's ownership to the artists you deemed worthy. Yes, it's New Band of the Month and I'm over dramaticizing again. The competition for…

New Band of the Month: Mind Pool

It was a tough call this month, with a tight selection of some really great bands, but our (which is to say your; you voted from them, their yours) clear winners are... drum roll unnecessary because their name is in the title of this…

New Band of the Month: Nolita View

Ding! Ding! Ding! The votes are officially in, and the band that you 'orrible lovely lot voted to win are Nolita View. The four-piece who dish out a mix of post-punk, indie, and maybe even a little funk that stands out amongst the crowd in…

New Band of the Month: Van Dammes

New Band of the Month: Steel Trees

South Yorksire trio Steel Trees first bust their way into CULTURED VULTURE hearts, via slapdash buzzsaw surgery, in a recent edition of our regular music feature PULSE: NEW MUSIC YOU NEED. If you didn't catch that, as said, the band hail…

New Band of the Month: Thieves

As I write this, it is Valentine's Day. As you read this, it's not, but as I write it, it is. A day chock full of romance, allegedly, and how appropriate then that I'm writing up February's NEW BAND OF THE MONTH today, given that our New…

New Band of the Month: Fawn Spots

January, what a month it is; crippled finances, burnt out on festive joy, back in work, miserable weather, and a recertified awareness that the years tick on, just as your own do, and you are edging ever closer to death. With that in mind,…

New Band of the Month: Meat Wave

Once you see a band dressed up like a harajuku nightmare, you know they're for you. A wonderful mish-mash of old and new school punk with a dashing of nerdiness to go with it, Meat Wave are worthy recipients of New Band of the Month for…

New Band of the Month: Axes

Another new month, another new band we give ownership of said month to. This month around it's the awesome Axes who have the honour, and the month is of course Movember. So, may they soundtrack many a moustache, or many an admiring of a…
