“Islet have announced their debut album, to be released 23rd January 2012 on Shape (Turnstile). ‘Illuminated People’ follows 2010’s rapturously received pair of EPs – ‘Celebrate This Place’ and ‘Wimmy’. The ten tracks stand as a bold opening statement from the Cardiff group who have quickly confirmed themselves as uninhibited by conventions, relishing expanse and experimentation.”
“Following their new single ‘Panic Plants’ and in anticipation of their subsequent single ‘Allergies’ (produced by Gruff Rhys and released on the Too Pure singles club), The Lovely Eggs take to the road once more in November and December. For their 1st December show at the Lexington, they will be joined by US cult hero Jad Fair (of Half Japanese fame).”
“Sounds Unique Entertainment are proud to announce the release of Deers 3rd EP – Orange. Having already released Green (EP1 – February 2011) and Red (EP2 – September 2011), the four tracks on Orange (EP3) showcase the edgiest Deers material yet. With the bulk of the EP recorded live at the Engine Rooms in London (with Mark Bishop), Orange captures the raw energy of 3 guitars battling against each other to create an epic crescendo.”
“Monday 5th also sees the release of The Felice Brothers‘ new single FIRE AT THE PAGEANT, on 7″ single & download. Described by The Guardian as “a clattering, accordian-fuelled drama” with “a snatch of old-school hip-hop scratching”, the track has gained a fan in Mark Radcliffe and received several plays on 6MUSIC’S Radcliffe & Maconie show.”
