Heck, the band formerly known as Baby Godzilla, are back with a new single ‘The Breakers’. The Nottingham based purveyors of noise’s new single drops on October 30th via Npag Industries, and is taken from a as yet untitled album expected out next year.

Around since 2011, meeting somewhere between London and Nottingham, and straddling other duos Royal Blood with a touch of Drenge and even a whiff of the much missed (at least by us here at Backseat Mafia) Wet Nuns, Whisky Stain have just released their new single, The Lord’s Revolver on I’m not from London Records. …

Nottingham avant electro dup I am Lono, aka Matthew Cooper and David Startin have a new six-track self-titled EP out on white vinyl and download on 22nd August through Louder City Records.

One of our favourite new bands here on Backseat Mafia has been Nottingham noise rock / punks Baby Godzilla, following on from an amazing performance we caught them at at last years Tramline Festival.

As with the bands DIY aesthetic, they’ve involved themselves in everything, with the exception of the Steve Lippert …

Amber Run proves to us all that popular music can still be sincere. After releasing a handful of EPs and singles the past few years, we’ve finally been gifted with a full-length album, produced by the magnificent Mike Crossey. 5AM is a moment of clarity in a world full of noise. Whilst you’ll recognise ‘Spark’ …

During my second listen to this album by Cathode Ray Eyes, a solo project by Ryan, guitarist/ vocalist from Psych Insight favourites Cult of Dom Keller, I went off of a mind riff on what would have happened if Ian Curtis had not tragically killed himself. I think …

Out on record store day (April 6th) is the latest single from prolific Nottingham indie poppers Lorna.
