Doubtful Sounds is dedicated to bringing you the best news, reviews, interviews and associated ephemera from the wide world of music. Featured on FBi Radio’s Out Of The Box and finalist in the 2012 & 2013 Pedestrian.TV Ultrabook Blogster Awards, we are continually looking for new ways to improve our format and content, to create a space where you can discover and rediscover the best music.
Since 2008 we’ve reviewed hundreds of albums and live shows and interviewed musicians such as John Cale (Velvet Underground), Phil Selway (Radiohead), Warren Ellis (Dirty Three, Bad Seeds), J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr), James Williamson (The Stooges), Billy Duffy (The Cult), Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Ryan Adams, Booker T. Jones, Mark Gardener (Ride), Eric Burdon, John Stirratt (Wilco), Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs), Lucinda Williams, Grasshopper (Mercury Rev), Jason Isbell, and many more.
As well as managing Doubtful Sounds I also regularly contribute to Rhythms magazine, FasterLouder, The Music, UnderTheRadar, The Big Issue and Vice and have had work published with The Dwarf, The Brag, Wireless Bollinger, Live Guide, Germinal Press, A Fine Line, Real Groove and Cyclic Defrost.
