FORMER Idlewild guiding light and fine solo folk artist in his own right, Roddy Woomble is shaking it all up on his latest single, “Architecture in LA”, the second to be taken from his forthcoming album Lo! Soul.  Leaving those deep folk textures behind, he instead dives into the lo-fi Moog soul sunshine for a …

Y’KNOW one thing that’s missing from our lives – I know, I know, a zillion things, right, but: technicolour. Really eye-poppingly bright colour, cerise and sunset yellow and tangerine and electric blue, glowing, searing – and I mean in a sonic form, too. It’s gotta be a good thing, then, that Manchester’s new wave of …

MINT JULEP, the halcyon, dreamy musical confection of Hollie and Keith Kenniff (aka Goldmind), are to release a new album, In a Deep & Dreamless Sleep, on Western Vinyl on March 19th; and one listen to the gorgeous “Pulse”, the new single, and you’ll see how deliciously apt a title they’ve picked.

LIVERPUDLIAN lo-fi indie combo Oya Paya, who we last bumped into on our daily peramble gosh! all way back in December with the slacker-pop winter warmer of “Focus”, are back! with a complete brainworm of a groovy ditty, “Pretty Slick”, which manages to fuse a wholly bedroom indiepop aesthetic with some verry Eighties’ kinda melodies, …

YOU MAY know Lou Hayter better for her work with London electro collective New Young Pony Club before they contracted into acronym; but get people to shuffle up on the elegant, intelligent electropop sofa inside your brain, because it’s gonna be so rude of you not to offer Lou a seat once you wrap your …

THOMAS HARVEY is a young English singer-songwriter bringing alt.pop grace and intelligence to his songwriting as a voice for the young UK queer community. He’s not afraid of a downtempo melodic pop number shot through with piercing lyrical precision,  as demonstrated by his latest single, the empowered but regretful lament of “BitCrushed”.

Lisbon Life is Good
