ESP is a new Los Angeles-based trio whose primary interest is, as their name implies, Extra Sensory Perception. The group explores this phenomena through their own synesthetic, synth-laden dreamscapes which literally overflow with hypercolored visuals. This is ESP, the sights, sounds and sensory overload of the West Coast cosmos.”

Love L.U.V. is the music project of Lucy Doyle and Tom Atkins, formed in July 2012. The pair borrow their name from the immortal spoken word intro to The Shangri-Las classic ‘Give Him A Great Big Kiss’ (a song they first learned to play together some years ago), also referenced by New York Dolls in ‘Looking For A Kiss’ and covered by Johnny Thunders.”

“Sweeten The Deal is the debut release from The Deadline Shakes. They are a Glasgow based band who have played only a handful of gigs. The download single is out 5th November.”

Tidal Wars have dragged their sprawling noise from the vacuous Weston Super Mare and have successfully captivated the new Bristol scene; their discordant effortlessness earning them more praise every show they play. This double A Side single is a perfect introduction to the band. You will receive it on a memory stick, housed in a match box full of miniature hand made art, so a real treat before you even get to the music. You can’t not love this band.”

“Since the release of his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Nameless Path’ at the end of last year, Marcus Foster has been fervently working away, penning new songs and subjecting himself to a grueling – yet not all together unpleasant – worldwide touring schedule, taking in venues from all over the UK, Europe and especially the US.”

“Already championed at XFM and 6Music, Northwich’s Joe Banfi has that stark individualism that Communion discovered with the debut releases by both Michael Kiwanuka and Ben Howard too. And what immediately proved so distinctive for Kevin Jones and Ben Lovett of Communion, after receiving an unsolicited email from Joe linking them to his demos, is what also makes this debut EP such a compelling listen. Where Banfi typically shares an affinity with a number of timeless solo artists of old, it’s his unlikely rock, grunge, and metal influences that provide the unsettling aura of the record.”

Morain’s very first EP release ‘Are We Lost’ is a four track collection of beautifully crafted melodic rock and is set to be released as a free download through under Indigo Records on 23rd September. Indigo is a label set up by members of the band Futures to release their own debut album and the project is backed by Brightblack Recordings.”

“Back with renewed vigour, Kurran & The Wolfnotes are now known simply as The Wolfnotes and have announced that their long-awaited debut album will be released in November! Together with Pledge Music, The Wolfnotes are taking music back to basics and – more importantly – back to the people that matter. All those that pledge will not only be able to get their hands on exclusive content and updates, but will also get an immediate download of ‘Static Bleed’, an 8-track EP that features new recordings and old favourites.”

“Sheffield-based duo, The Death Rays of Ardilla will be joining L.A. rockers, Deap Vally, on their UK tour this September. Brothers Thom and Nick create the perfect rock and roll mash up during a frenzied outpouring of energy and excitement – chaotic, sleazy, trashy and dripping with cool.”
