Under The Influence with Justin Lockey (Editors/Minor Victories/Lights On Moscow)

Justin Lockey is best known for his brilliant work with Editors and Minor Victories so the news of him working with Hazel Wilde from longtime E&D faves Lanterns On The Lake got our full attention! Their debut EP is out today (Oct 19th) so we thought it was a perfect time to get Justin to pick his three most influential albums.

Rumour Cubes with Exclusive ¡No Pasarán! Track Stream

Two and a half years on since their last show and more than four years since Appearances Of Collection came out, Rumour Cubes are back with a gig, on Friday 14th Sep at The Underdog Gallery in London Bridge, and not one but two new tracks to release. With that in mind, we thought it was a good time to have a chat with the band and see what they’ve been up to in all that time.

Under The Influence with Adam Fulford from Dream Logic

We were pointed in the direction of Dream Logic by Tim from perennial E&D faves Tomorrow We Sail & we thought anything Tim was in to would be worth checking out; and how right we were.

Under The Influence with My Baby

A couple of weeks ago we saw My Baby absolutely tear it up in the rain at Boomtown Festival, attracting a sizeable crowd to shake their funky stuff in the mud to the band’s stoner disco grooves.  With a new video just released & a new album on the horizon, we thought it an ideal time to grab the band and find out what influenced their superfun sound.
