September Round Up Time!

I have been a bit slack on posting these past couple of weeks but I have some good excuses for that! Firstly I have set up a new record label with my Sleeping Today Promotions collaborator. I have also been helping promote the next Culture Bunker night which takes place on October 22nd and it … Continue reading

Flowers – Pull My Arm

Flowers released their second album Everybody’s Dying To Meet You this past Friday and mighty fine it is too. Currently Pull My Arm, which almost did not make the cut, is my favourite track (those vocals!) but it’s early days! The band are currently touring in support of the album and I will see you … Continue reading

Flowers – Ego Loss

Ego Loss is a cracking (I say that word way too much!) new tune from the forthcoming Flowers album Everybody’s Dying To Meet You which will be out on Fortuna Pop (UK & Europe) and Kanine (US) next February. If your appetite still needs whetting Pull My Arm will be the opening track: Facebook

Chorusgirl – Oh, To Be A Defector

It’s will soon be that time of year for list compiling and I have no doubt that Chorusgirl and their excellent New Moon single that was released on Oddbox Records earlier this year will be high up on my list. That 7″ is now long sold out but the good news is that both sides … Continue reading

The Spook School – Binary

Binary is taken from the forthcoming album Try To Be Hopeful which is due out on Fortuna Pop next month. It’s a political tinged slab of 1980’s tinged indiepop that bodes well for the album being a cracker. And, if like me, you missed the first single from the album Burn Masculinity stream it below. … Continue reading

Flowers – Forget The Fall

Flowers have lifted Forget The Fall as a single from their excellent Do What You Want To, It’s What You Should Do album in support of their first ever headline tour which starts today in Brighton – see image above for dates and venues! Facebook

Flowers – Do What You Want To, It’s What You Should Do

My main worry with Do What You Want To, It’s What You Should Do was that it would be way too over produced /polished (by Bernard Butler) but thankfully that’s not the case despite their previous fuzzy guitar sound being muted somewhat. Rachel Kenedy’s vocals are as ethereal as ever and on parts send shivers … Continue reading

Flowers – Joanna

Here is another track taken from Flower’s debut album Do What You Want To, It’s What You Should Do which is due out next month. New single Joanna was originally released last year on Oddbox Records and whilst this version a bit more polished thankfully it does not lose much of it’s rawness. Indeed Rachel’s … Continue reading

Flowers – Young

Young is taken from Flowers forthcoming debut album Do What You Want To, It’s What You Should Do which is due out in early September on Fortuna Pop (UK/EU) and Kanine Records (US). A lovely, lovely song and I cannot wait to hear the rest. You can buy Young digitally from Bandcamp. EDIT: A nice … Continue reading

Note: if you want to listen to a companion playlist to this post head over here. The Hundredth Anniversary … Continue reading
