Welsh band Detective Larsson who have just released their debut single ’21 (Dreamt Of Freedom)’ with two B-sides in the form of the bands arrangements of Dean Martin & Ricky Nelson’s ‘My Rifle, My Pony and Me’ and Marianne Faithfull’s ‘As Tears Go By’. All jangly and floaty with a deep bass, ’21 (Dreamt Of …

BORN in the musical fires of Manchester, currently resident in Berlin, it’s fair to say that there’s a decent dose of proper musical heritage, maybe a little darkness, a willingness to party and explore the edges, in the DNA of The Underground Youth. The band, led by Craig Dyer and also comprised of his wife …

PEOPLE SOUP is a new post-punk trio outta the capital of God’s Own Country, Leeds, comprised of singer-guitarist Harry Jones, bassist Ryan Walker and drummer Joe Willis. They’ve got it going on and have just released their first single, “Rosemary”, via the offices of Bandcamp, who’ve certainly come through as one of the good guys …

SPINNING out of all the gnarl and edginess of West London’s Ladbroke Grove in the mid-1980s, Folk Devils were an outfit that were never appreciated as much as they perhaps should’ve been beyond a hugely loyal fanbase. They released just four singles from 1984 to 1987, their last release being The Best Protection EP on …

Canadian post-punk/shoegaze band ultrviolence have released their new dream pop single – ‘In Fashion’ taken from their forthcoming album ‘Sally Would Say..’ due 25th September. There’s deep joy to be found here. From the strummed guitar to the vocals. Joy and nostalgia as Ultrviolence’s songwriter, Nate Jespersen, borrowed the song’s lyrics from old issues of his …

WINTER GARDENS, the Sussex quartet beloved of a big guitar and unafraid of a grandiose statement, even this early in their career – they covered the Cocteaus’ Pearly Dewdrops-Drops on their first, hard-to-find, 7″ – have dropped a lyric video for a second track from their forthcoming Tapestry EP, which is out next month; you …

Post punk Quartet Dusker have followed up their first EP with a second, titled simply EP 2. It carries on their DIY work ethic, Ep titles and superb sound. The band have shared the first track ‘Leo’ as a teaser. An EP to take you right back to the late 90s and for me many …

IT CHARGES at you on wiry guitar and rumbling tom-toms, a shadowy simmer. We’re in a lecture theatre, with vocalist and keyboard player Nadia Garafalo demure in a sweater: our college lecturer on hand to guide us through the lyric video for “Projector”, the latest slice of portent-filled post-punk from Chicago’s Ganser. It serves notice …
