Horse Lords - The Common Task - Album Review by Marc Louis-Boyard for Slow Culture - Picture by Audrey Gatewood

Horse Lords, The Common Task (Northern Spy Records) – ALBUM REVIEW #18

When we first heard about Horse Lords and their forthcoming album The Common Task, we read the following lines : Horse Lords make music for the liberation of mind and body. Five listenings later (and counting), we are really happy to confirm that these words weren’t a form of overstatement. Let us insist: The Common Task is […]

John Berger & Selçuk Demirel - What Time Is It - Book review by Slow Culture

John Berger & Selçuk Demirel, What Time Is It? (Notting Hill Editions) – BOOK REVIEW #6

Book Review for Love and Loss and Other Important Stuff by Jonathan Pinnock

Jonathan Pinnock, Love and Loss and Other Important Stuff – BOOK REVIEW #4

When it comes to cynicism, we used to be disciples of Conan O’Brien: cynicism was our least favorite quality. But that was until we read Jonathan Pinnock’s Love and Loss and Other Important Stuff. We have to remind here that Gareth E. Rees recently started our conversion, but Jonathan truly finished it as soon as […]
