Needless to day, we’re very excited to be running the premiere. Taken from their upcoming debut album Gnarly Gumlie’s Voodoo …

A vibrant, visceral synth underlay provides a delicious wash along with vocal layers that dance at the edge of the sound. The shoegaze rush is highlighted by …

Alphaville recently opened their own shop, Alphaville Emporium. Here at BSM we have been watching their progress with interest and when they announced Repeater, the first in a series of all day events designed to bring what they call “new/weird/wonderful music to Manchester at grassroots venues” I couldn’t resist checking it out.

After some problems with logistics last year, largely due to COVID-19 restrictions being in place, this years event had a lot of weight on its shoulders.  The day starts for me with Winsford’s Déjà Vega. …
