Once we heard ‘When I Fall’, the recent single from Berlin based Robert Laupert, a small signal of hope written in a difficult period in his life, and wrapped up in this country folk exterior, we knew we needed to take notice of what he had to say, and find a little more out about …

Ahead of the debut album under the moniker La Bonte, Don’t Let This Define Me, comes a single of the same name from the Southern Californian troubadour Garrett La Bonte, and it’s out today. For all of the sunshine of California, there’s something of the grey about the song, beautifully melancholy in a sort of …

Cathal Coughlan’s music permeates my record collection. I remember my first discovery – his early band Microdisney’s ‘Singers Hampstead Home’, (on glorious 12”) on one of those teenage record shop days where you literally couldn’t leave the building without spending every last penny of whatever part time job/pocket money paid for such things (in my …

TINDERSTICKS are in danger of becoming a national treasure. After all they’ve (or more pertinently lead figure Stuart A Staples has) since 1991, largely making thought-provoking dark pop and emotive vignettes, always concerned with mood as well as just melody and structure. To that end, they have always turned ears and drew people towards them. …

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 …

After we heard the new song from NYC via Melbourne artist LANKS, Cold Blood, we knew we had something rather special on our hands. Glittering electro, soaked in melancholy and with this strumming guitar adding to the realism were enough to draw us in. It was these impossibly catchy melodies, as well as his soaring …

Portsmouth songwriter and producer Tom Wells has been on our radar for a while, since last November in fact when he released his single ‘The English Way’, taken from his forthcoming EP, out later in the year. Focusing on men’s mental health, and encouraging people to speak out about their feelings instead of suffering in …

We happened upon the glorious fuzzy pop of Man From Atlantis a few days ago, written by Mint Eastwood – a person we were previously unaware of. The tracks takes the lo-Fi melancholy of Grandaddy, a hint of Teenage Fanclub and a healthy dose of synths and synth-pop and you have this intimate little comfort …
