Witterings from an old indie kid
London based promoter and label Damnably are promoting an excellent gig featuring their artists at London’s Scala on Thursday 19th April. I am there with bells on. This weeks pack of three features a track from each band playing.
Otoboke Beaver – anata watashi daita ato yome no meshi
Japan’s Otoboke Beaver are headlining and anata watashi daita ato yome no meshi is their latest single (Feb 18). I like the bands brand of shouty garage punk and this single is no exception.

Say Sue Me – After Falling Asleep
After Falling Asleep is the third single to be lifted from the band’s Where We Were Together album that is released today. Their mix of melodic indiepop and shoegaze/dreampop seems to be ticking the boxes of many around the globe. Last year’s Good For No Reason single was simply stunning so much so that it was my track of the year and, based on what I have heard so far, the album will certainly be in my top ten for 2018.

Leggy – Not What You Need
Cincinnati’s Leggy are a new one from me despite being around a while. This track from October 2017 is their latest. I really like the melodic guitars on this one which mixes a number styles to great effect. The vocals are great too. I will certainly be delving into their back catalogue.
EDIT: The label have also put together a Spotify playlist in support of the tour.
See you down the front!
