Brighton’s slightly mysterious but highly talented musicians, Thrillhouse, are back with another very finely crafted indie pop offering – ‘Where The Roads Don’t Go’ – that confirms their status as one of the most seriously underappreciated bands around at the moment. Thrillhouse has not easily definable style but it is a style that is unique …

We’ve been following Garsa (the solo work of Martin Garside) for a while now on Backseat Mafia, celebrating a string of singles that have displayed a nuanced songwriting craft with low-fi delicate instrumentation and gorgeous melodies. Since we last heard from Garside, he has been signed to Golden Believers Records and has now announced the …

With a debut late last year with single ‘Dumbshit’ followed up by ‘Dramatic’, Sydney-based duo Cat and Calmell have been establishing quite a bit of interest in Australia and beyond. On the announcement of their live debut in Sydney, the duo have released a video for the track ‘Dramatic’ – a stunning, shadowy feature that …

We’ve covered the track earlier, here, so let’s cover the facts, just to be clear. Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey, aka The Catenary Wires, following a track record that features Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Tender Trap and Marine Research, are rightly revered as indie pop deitys. These days they’re still preaching the jangle pop word through …

The Australian folk/indie pop band The Paper Kites are musical icons and in ‘Roses’, their fifth album, they have crafted a breathtakingly beautiful album that has an indelible sheen and stature. This is a band that is simply getting better every release, and in this release the boundaries have been further extended by a coterie …

We are very honoured to premiere the new video for ‘Western Skies’, the single from the glorious The Pretty Visitors. The track itself launches with a thrilling wall of guitars and shimmering vocal harmonies. It is epic and cinematic indie pop of the highest degree. The partly spoken verse has a lyrical poetry infused with …

Glaswegian five-piece wojtek the bear make their return today, more than a year after releasing most recent EP old names for new shapes, and they’ve certainly been busy. They announced their forthcoming second album a little while back, and you can now listen to its opening track and lead single ‘ferme la bouche’, which, per …

Spirit Level is the new album from Scottish folk-pop collective Randolph’s Leap. The titular ‘spirit level’ is a steady reference point over what had been an unsettled spell writing the album, with Adam Ross uprooting from a decade in Glasgow to a tauntingly lopsided house in rural Aberdeenshire, navigating his way through shifting phases in …

Dre Danburry sat on a sofa with fire behind him.

Legendary American D.I.Y. folk-pop singer-songwriter (and barber shop owner) Drew Danburry has just released his latest single – “Song To Long” – a revived and re-recorded version of a song written and recorded in 2006 with collaborator Ian Aiello. It’s an interesting thought experiment. How many artists have partially written and half recorded songs that …

Known as the darker brother of The Go-Betweens, Peter Milton Walsh’s career has recently been revamped, also thanks to the collaboration with a few French labels, Microcultures and Talitres. The latter has now announced that they are reissuing A Life Of Farewells, a 1995 album previously only available on CD from the original release. The …
