We have arisen from the dead... or the drowned at least. Yes, you read that right, we did not drown at Rock am Ring, it's a Christmas (sort of) miracle! We're sure you've all been very concerned about our absence, so we have a nice little update episode for you explaining our time away, as well as touching on some of the news that's happened whilst we were gone. We hope the wait will make this episode even sweeter... Recommendations • Rick: not going to Rock am Ring, BOATS, MANGO in...

Ahoy sailors! All aboard this week’s episode of First Impressions where we’ve got some fantastic albums to discuss for you once again; one of which became foundational for one of us and the other for the music scene one of us resides in. Prize* to whoever guesses which is which! We also cover some other interesting topics for your enjoyment, namely the latest news (… or semi-latest), new releases, being old, politics (sorry) and nostalgia within music.

We’re backkkkk! And we’ve missed you guys, so without further ado, here’s Episode Seven! We’re kicking off with a bit of news, Romy rambles about the Hotelier (no surprises here), we briefly touch on lyrics and what we like about them, then we launch straight into our albums of the week. Romy apologies for her general uselessness this week; dissertation writing is hard.
