The trouble with February being a short month is that you get caught unawares, and before you know it it’s the 3rd March and you still haven’t posted the March gig previews. So let’s crack on. Continue reading

Every other blog post made today is probably a spooky Halloween themed blog post, but for us the date being the thirty first signifies that it’s time for our next new music post. Sometimes we that by a day or two, but we’ve got our housein order because the first gig to plug is a night called In Heaven Everything Is Fine, being put on tomorrow night (Thursday 1st November) by Super8Sync at The Nightingale Room above Grand Central. Nick Hudson (from The Academy of Sun), Mudlow, Seadog and Blatnova are all on the bill, accompanied by visuals from Cinema Iloobia and TAOS films. Continue reading
Another week, another bunch of new tunes to share.Not quite as many as last week, so back to just the one post.
Before they head to Europe this summer to claim festivals across the continent as their own AKDK have shared a video for brand new track Atomic DNA:
This gallery contains 13 photos.
Last night Neonfiller hosted a fun-filled three-band session at the newly kitted-out upstairs room at the Joker featuring Seadog warming up for their support slot at tonight’s Spectrum show (2000s math-rock crossed with Elliott Smith-infused indie harmonies), Fever Dream (1990s … Continue reading
We didn’t do a top ten at the end of November. It had been a quiet month, and we were gearing up for our top twenty that we posted in December. Both months had a few great tunes that are too good to pass up though, so this month’s top ten has a few tracks from the end of last year too.
1 The Go! Team / The Scene Between
The Go! Team are back! Our top spot is the lead track from the band’s new album also called The Scene Between, out in March on Memphis Industries.
2 Anneka / End of It
End of It only features Anneka’s voice, but the layers and the textures and the harmonies demand repeat listens.
3 GAPS / She Bears a Flower
GAPS latest release came out right at the end of November last year sounding like some a futuristic remix of an Elizabethan childrens folk song.
4 Ambassadeurs / Forever
Forever is the lead track from Ambassadeurs latest EP out last month. Ambassadeurs play a gig at The Green Door Store at the end of the month, supported by Foreign Skin.
5 The Fiction Aisle / Blue
We liked Tom White’s new band’s first proper track so much that we got it into our end of the year round up, even though it hadn’t been in one of our top ten posts. Since we’re catching up on November here it would be wrong of us to omit it.
6 David Harks / Odyssey
We loved Open Arms, also taken from David Harks’ Lomo EP but shared much earlier in the year, as soon as we heard it but Odyssey was much more of a slow burner working it’s way under our skin until we couldn’t stop listening to it.
7 Tyrannosaurus Dead – Flying Ant Day
Tyrannosaurus Dead were the first band we ever interviewed on the blog, so it’s great to see their debut album (also called Flying Ant Day) finally released.
8 Seadog / Transmitter
Seadog’s Transmitter EP was launched at the end of December, while most of us were busy being distracted. The physical release is due in the springtime, but you can grab the EP now if you head over to Bandcamp.
9 Phantom Runners / Laserbeam
Laserbeam is a free download from Phantom Runnerscover on Soundcloud. Hanging out with Huey Morgan (who’s produced their last few tracks) is obviously rubbing off – this is the most laid back thing they’ve done.
10 Man Ray Sky / Ether Song
Finishing up with the title track from an EP from December, Ether Song is four minutes of breezy guitar pop.
