Watch: Enemy Planes – ‘Bare Your Teeth’

Some people complain a bit about the immense amount of genres in the world today. But variety is the spice of life, right? Besides, it means that bands like Enemy Planes can make up their own genre. And they have, kind of. They call their music “tripnotic” and, considering their track ‘Bare Your Teeth’ sounds…

Listen: Weaves – ‘One More’

Toronto quartet Weaves have been working ridiculously hard putting together their debut album, so much so that we haven’t heard too much from them recently. Well, there was that cover they did of One Direction which was, you know, frankly amazing. And their single ‘Tick,’ which was… well, there aren’t enough superlatives really. So it’s…

Listen: Summer Heart – ‘The Forbidden’

Last year we played some tracks by Malmo-based group Summer Heart and basically got a little blown away by their ethereal yet vibrant guitars and Indian Summer vibes. It was the end of the summer, for the record, so it seemed pretty apt. The band, masterminded by David Alexander, are pretty prolific, releasing a string of…

Listen: Free Cake For Every Creature – ‘First Summer In A City’

First, before we go any further, let’s take a brief moment to reflect on what an immensely awesome name Free Cake For Every Creature is. Mastermind behind the outfit Katie Bennett could have chosen her own name or something more dull and predictable but instead she combined charity, critters and cake together into a lovely,…

Listen: Pinemen – ‘Predictions’

Last year, when they released their single ‘That Certain Flavour’ and the accompanying EP Pleasant Pain, we made a prediction of our own for indie quartet Pinemen: that they’d be on to bigger things in 2016. Well, only a couple of months into the New Year and we’ve got a brand new tune from the…

Listen: Girl Friend – ‘Waste My Time’

Manchester has a long history of chart-bothering acts that seep into the collective consciousness; whether it’s the electro-indie of New Order or the lad Britpop of Oasis, the city is noted for their high-profile bands. So spare a quick thought for Girl Friend, who have one of those un-Googlable names that mean they’ve flown under…

Listen: Babeheaven – ‘Heaven’

Image: Lily Bertrand Webb In the coming months, five-piece Babeheaven will be supporting Loyle Carner, Beach Baby and Baio. That’s quite a little roster, and a diverse one at that. The different artists wanting Babeheaven to support them on tour is testament to the group’s ever-shifting attitude towards sound and their mutual appreciation for a…

An Interview With… Rocky Votolato

Images: Amber Zbitnoff Knecht Growing up with a love of folk and outlaw country, Rocky Votolato first rose to prominence as part of the Seattle music scene and, in the ten years since releasing his debut solo album, he’s worked with members of Death Cab For Cutie and Pedro The Lion, as well as touring…

Listen: The Hanged Man – ‘Invincible Trees’

Former guitarist of bounce-pop outfit Those Dancing Days and bassist in Vulkano Rebeka Rolfart released her debut EP under the name The Hanged Man more than a year and a half ago. For those of us searching once again for the darkness that permeated her introspective solo project, she’s thankfully back with another small collection,…

Listen: Tacocat – ‘I Hate The Weekend’

Ask many people if they hate the weekend and the answer will probably be “no.” There’s probably a few cops and disgruntled paramedics out there who look at Saturday night and are suddenly filled with dread but for most people it’s a blast of sunshine to help close off that dull week at work. Unless…
