Enough to make any self-respecting reviewer power down their laptop you might think, but then out of the blue come gems like this from the ...

-isq: Too

Read "Too" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Too is the second album from London-based quartet -isq. No surprise there. The slightly odd presentation of the band's name remains in place and continues to trouble the usually faultless activities of the planet's internet search engines. The line-up from debut album -isq (Cheesepeas Records, 2013) is still intact. The band's distinctive “every silver lining has ...
