By Joseph Douglas “I wanna be the biggest artist in the country”- Who is Frankie Beetlestone, what makes him so goodand why will you know who he is in the coming years? Spirited musician Frankie Beetlestone only released his debut EP in 2021. But after alreadytouring with Tom Grennan, he is already making his mark …

Drum n Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan aka The Undercover Hippy is on a mission tomake people think, laugh and dance simultaneously. We caught up with Rowan to find out where it all started and his new track ‘These Days‘.  Give us a potted history of yourself I started out as an acoustic solo …

With the band on tour after supporting their second album ‘So When You Gonna…’, which earned both #18 UK Album Chart debut and a #1 placing in the Official Record Store Chart of Independent Retailers.

Those scamps at Delicious Clam always manage to grab our attention, and they’ve struck gold again, signing brilliant Sheffield band Sister Wives to their roster. We’ve already fauned over ‘I Fynwy Af/Rise’ one side of their new release, and with flip side Crags being about strange witch markings found at Creswell Crags in Worksop we’re …

Rather than the global recognition they so richly deserved, 90s indie band Bradford were relegated to corners of second hand record shops, names on old gig listings and, sadly, a footnote. But it didn’t end. They were always that little gem on a mix cassette, a ‘do you remember?’ Or ‘did you ever hear’ in …

We’ve long been in thrall of Leeds’ stoner-witch-doom-rock duo Faux Machismo (even the description makes us shiver with excitement), and they’re releasing their new single Artemisia today, February 5th, via Muzai Records. The pair, singer/guitarist Maeve Munro and drummer Anna Ridley, have based their track on a painting from the early 1620s by Italian painter …
