After checking the lineup announcement for this years Summer Series at Somerset House, I was ecstatic to see that this man made the list. I first heard of Gary Clark Jr. after seeing him in the Jon Favreau film Chef and had Gary’s album on order before the credits had finished. A blues man from Austin, Texas he Read More
For this week I’ve chosen a track called Lay My Body Down by Rag ‘N’ Bone Man. I first heard of him through one of our music correspondents here at DolphinSuicide, Prew (with a first post 3 years in the making, you know it’s gonna be gold), and I can not rate this guy enough!
The song is Maps and the band is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and it is a masterpiece; from the moment that guitar riff starts, then the drums, closely followed by Karen O’s vocals grabbing at your heart, its outstanding.
Its been a week since we thrust the titillating sound of The Weeknd at you and to make up for it we have lined up something to sooth those banging ears. As it is the Oscars tonight, we thought we would celebrate by choosing one of the previous winners of the Best Original Song award for Read More

We here at Dolphin Suicide are all avid music fans, whether it’s finding new and old bands, going to gigs, listening to remixes, mashups, even a healthy dose of “what-is-that-noise” we listen to it all! I know what you are all thinking, “how do you find the time to post so frequently and listen to Read More
Some tracks fall into our laps and flop wetly like cold, limp fish. Every now and then, however, our speakers stumble on a seahorsepowered slam-dunk symphony. The sort of bangers that could get your 64-year-old great aunt Ethel moshing like a criminal. These are those bangers.
