“Teenage five-piece, Coastal Cities are set to release a new single on Once Upon A Time Records on the 30th of July 2012. ‘Relief’, a song about the desperation of youth to break out and start living their dreams, is the bands second single and comes backed with another new song ‘The Voyage’.

“On July 30th 2012, acclaimed Oxford quartet A Silent Film will release their new EP, “This Stage Is Your Life” through Creative Media. Conceived in a makeshift recording studio in Cave Creek Arizona, the EP also features a soaring piano version of ‘Danny Dakota and the Wishing Well’, which is set to appear on the new album “Sand & Snow” released early next year.”
“Summerlin have released their track ‘Fortune And Glory, Kid’ as a free download to celebrate their current tour with Crown Jewel Defense. The song is taken from the band’s debut album ‘You Can’t Burn Out If You’re Not On Fire’ which is out now on Rude Records.”
“Fresh from a recent collaboration with AM creatively titled “AM & Shawn Lee” which produced the album Celestial Electric, Shawn Lee embarks on a solo effort Synthesizers In Space, out July 9th on ESL Music. Synthesizers in Space began at a music store called Switched On in Austin, TX and the discovery of a vintage “mystery-box” instrument hidden amongst the old synths and organs that created sounds and textures unlike anything currently in his sonic arsenal. The result was a focused attack in the studio, creating a set of 11 new tracks based around the “mystery box”, and a range of psychedelic grooves. Synthesizers in Space is a diverse, densely layered collection from a musician known for his ability to blend sunny melodies, smoky grooves and propulsive rhythms into his own inimitable sound.”
“Io Echo is Ioanna Gika and Leopold Ross. Currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album which combines grand songs with unique textures such as Japanese koto harps and Chinese violins, the band have created towering tracks with a distinctive sound early listeners have been calling ‘the leaders of Grunge Goth’ and ‘New Orientalism’.”Just Published:
