Yammerer – Reality Escape Resort

Yammerer aren’t exactly reinventing the wheel here but they’ve left the car up on bricks and are rolling its wheels down a steep bank with giddy abandon.

Ekoplekz – In Search Of The Third Mantra

In this dank, urban, sonic rot the word mantra makes more sense as the optimistically exotic name of a mid range family car, rusting in a multi-storey or flaring brightly on waste ground.

ENSŌ SONE: Qujaku + IMPATV • Group A – Hare and Hounds, Birmingham

Qujaku are not at the point in their career where they can yet play venues big enough for a production as impressive as IMPATV have brought here, but they’re so good it probably won’t be long. You don’t want to miss this tour.

Warmduscher – Tainted Lunch

Lost in its own run down neighbourhood the dystopian unease of 2019 is woven deep in it’s rich, moth-eaten, tapestry. In desperate and uncertain times Warmduscher are the punky disco party band we need.

Emptyset – Blossoms

What we get here is an uncanny valley version of Emptyset. Almost like it but somehow disturbingly blank and misshapen at the same time.

Black Beach – Tapeworm

A pleasingly incoherent scream of disaffection mashing together post punk and noise rock with grunge and other random scrapings.

The Body – Remixed

Few bands have completely opened out and deconstructed their own process so enthusiastically while retaining their essential dark vision and abrasive sound. It makes perfect sense to see their work torn up and reassembled by kindred spirits.

Moon Duo – Stars Are The Light

The sound is soft and transparent, a dreamy wander just off their usual track and down to the brighter shore, it drifts by in a warm languid haze.

Breakup Haircut – What Did You Expect? I Got It Off The Internet!

Fuzzy little two minute blasts of conflicted feelings, idle dreams, strong fashion choices and tooling up to battle the undead. Like you do.

Dan Friel – Fanfare

The front and centre wonk and distortion counter balance his remarkable knack for melodies so immediate you feel like you already know them.

Kemper Norton – brunton calciner

Modern electronic approaches are applied to folk themes with a curiously effective lightness of touch. Particular textures and obscured meaning creating a sense of suspended time.
