Birdman Review: Dark Laughs in Theatre of Broken Dreams

Review: Jay Rodger – Bunker EP

Hating Jay Rodger would be like kicking an Andrex puppy; his sincere, tender and totally free-to-stream music makes him incredibly likeable.  The UK singer songwriter’s debut release, the Bunker EP, is a handful of calm, pensive, and delicate tracks. Jay’s intricate poetic phrasing, gentle acoustic backdrops and echoey vocal harmonies make […]
