Melbourne’s Children Collide have been a vital beating heart of the Australian indie music scene, and after a nine year break are back with swagger and style with their new album ‘Time Itself’, out now through Spinning Top Records. With a deceptively tamed jangling start, ‘Man of the People’ erupts into a mountainous riff-laden fuzzy …

We are proud to premiere the new single from Melbourne artist Anna Smyrk. ‘The Excavator’ is a folk-tinged indie rock anthem that starts off with a slow burning fuse before sparking into an intense and dynamic anthem. The thundering, pounding rhythm section provides a beating pulse while Smyrk’s voice is passionate and delicate as she …

Charlie Watts always had this look of an accountant who had wandered into a gig by accident and stumbled into the drummer’s stool.

JEEZ, will you look at that CV. Robert Smith, Bowie, David Coverdale, Glen Matlock, John and Yoko, The Yardbirds; quite clearly, Earl Slick is a man you need aboard if you need six strings tickled with real love and precision. He’s just dropped an album of instrumental blues, Fist Full Of Devils: but look, when …

Acclaimed Edinburgh indie trio We Were Promised Jetpacks will release their much-anticipated, brand new album Enjoy the View on 10 September via Big Scary Monsters. Along with this announcement is the release of single Fat Chance. Following on from previous single If It Happens – released via 7” – these new tracks signify a change …

Ohio four-piece The Ophelias have shared new single Neil Young on High (featuring Julien Baker), the first single from their new album Crocus, set for release on Sept 24 via Joyful Noise Recordings.

MANCHESTER events site GigList is branching out from promoting music into giving it a specific platform of its own with the launch of a sister label, Carrie: an imprint that aims to elevate and celebrate female musicians, producers, and female-presenting voices. And Carrie is launching this midsummer morning with a first track from Yorkshire’s Soft …
