Taken from neo-classical Cellist Gasper Claus’ debut solo album Tancade, an ode to a particular beach where he and his friends would visit every year to celebrate life, make music and dance, is a new video for the track Ô Sélénites, and we’re delighted to be able to premiere it right here on Backseat Mafia …

Rural France, aka Tom Brown and Rob Fawkes, began life in 2017 shortly after both left London for the greener climes of Wiltshire. They released their first album ‘Two Drink Maximum’ a year later, and followed it with an EP, Damp Spirit. A new album ‘RF’ is out on October 29th via Meritorio Records, and …

Photos: Steve Barnes “Ooh, girls in the band”, says someone in front of me as Maximo Park take to the stage. And so it is, with bass and keys/backing vocal slots both taken with female musicians, although over the next hour or so, if there was any winning over to be done, it’s done with …

Very rarely does a record manage to capture a spectrum of cinematic detail in it’s profoundly illustrative composition, spinning yarns across it’s runtime like neighbouring scenes. However – with far greater ambition and grace than any crassly conceived concept album – the new collaborative project between Land Trance and Aging does just that, envisioning a …

We are honoured to premiere the buoyant hyperkinetic new single from Sydney’s Mako Bron. Cantering along at a chemically engineered trot, this is perfect slice of indie pop: filled with indelible melodies and a celestial anthemic chorus.

This is a band that perfects a royal wielding of jangling guitars and celestial melodies that superglue their way into the head. …

“YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND SHIT!” Well hi there Full Bush, how have you been? Busy, by the sounds of things; the opening 15 seconds of the lead single from the Philadelphia quartet’s first collection of new material in going on three-and-a-half years provides the sort of catharsis they (and no doubt their listeners) have been looking …

AUTUMN has well and truly bitten; any Indian summer which we may have had is now truly receding in the rear-view mirror; drizzle has become the lingua franca. Time to bust out the daylight lamps, grab the vitamin D anywhere we can. Thankfully Hampshire’s James Alexander Bright has been working on a plan in cahoots …

CHRIS PORPORA, the artist whose twin album releases from earlier this year, Time Waits For No One and Days Go By, are the gentlest, brittlest sucker punches to the heart and so should be in your turntables if not your Christmas list, isn’t done with dirty old 2021 yet; he’s looking to round off a …

BAD SEEDS founder member and smouldering, potent artist in her own right, Anita Lane left us far too young this April, at the age of 61; her on-off solo career had never really received the sales it should’ve been accorded, and she remained underappreciated, seemingly having slipped from view in recent years. But Mute are …
