We’ve got a bit doe eyed about the new album from Montreal based trio Afternoon Bike Ride, what with their gorgeous melodies, lo-fi aesthetic and sensitive backings, so when we got chance to talk to the band about the new self-titled record – out today on the Friends of Friends imprint, we jumped at the …

The Stirling-based project led by Stephen McAll, Constant Follower, have been building up to the release of their debut album for a while – releasing its lead single a whole 10 months ago – but it’s finally pencilled in for release next Friday, and they’ve got one final taster to share before the full thing …

We are honoured to premiere today Aodhan‘s delicious new single ‘Flies In My Room’: a gentle reflective track with crisp acoustic guitars and a bed of billowing synths and harmonies.

They are one of the few bands where you know that their new music is always going to be emotionally and creatively transportative, taking you to places you may never have imagined. They have released consistently excellent albums ever since their wondrously eerie debut ‘Becoming …

Former member of Low Chimes – Maja Lena – has released a gorgeous, new pastoral folk song through Chiverin Records. ‘The Keeper’ explores our relationship with ourselves and comes with an enchanting video, starring and filmed ‘home video style’ by Maja, with some filming by her husband Luke Oakley-Smith. She used a VHS camcorder from …

Australian indie giants Jebediah’s front person was Kevin Mitchell, and Mitchell, in turn, is Bob Evans – a persona created to deliver Mitchell’s solo work. His new album, ‘Tomorrowland’ is a bright, shining and shimmering piece of work fusing an alt. country melancholia with an indie folk rock jangle and yet defies easy labelling throughout. …
