DON’T NEED THIS
31 March 2012 / Stone Soup / 1 Trk Download

The best thing about the opening segments of “Pacemaker” is that it sounds broken...

THERE ARE GHOSTS IN THESE MACHINES
31 March 2012 / Promo / Download single
:: The Narrows ::
An ever wayward collision of weird-out electropop, crunching guitars, creepy synths and the general feeling that everything is one big sci-fi nightmare

SUBHUMAN / DRILLS
31 March 2012 / Promo / 2 Trk download (available on I-Tunes in May)
:: Deadtapes ::
Lyrically someone is stalking or being stalked, whilst musically the walls are closing in ever tighter.

ONE SQUARE MILE

:: Happy Martyr ::
Lusty and Boorer invent a unique brand of urban hip- folk

KEPTINWAITING
31 March 2012 / Promo / 5 Trk CD

By today's standards, this live feel with barrel loads of rustic energy is pretty uniquely portrayed by multi-layered percussion and acoustic instruments

31 March 2012 / Promo / Self released 2 Trk download
:: Kleine Schweine ::
...we can't wait to hear the forthcoming "Pass The Dubcek On The Left Hand Side".

…THE LADDER
31 March 2012 / Squealing Beagle Records / Free Downlaod / Hand Packaged CD
:: Optional Wallace ::
New wave tones bleed through into this epic collision of guitars and a merry-go-round rock mini- operas

AWAY FROM THE BRIGHT LIGHTS
31 March 2012 / Skiffler Recordings / 10 Trk CD

A work of folk based art, retrospective organic pop and engaging tuneful conversation.

:: Nada Surf ::
this proves that music changes lives more than almost anything else...

THE ECHO SHOW
31 March 2012 / Sonic Cathedral / 13 Trk CD / Vinyl / Download
:: Yeti Lane ::
An album of songs that often start quite low-key and blossom along the way

OWL BABIES
31 March 2012 / Promo / 12 Trk Download
:: Owl Babies ::
Owl Babies is both a demo and dark avenue of experimentation, yet within it are some bright burning stars.

IN TIME TO VOICES

:: Blood Red Shoes ::
Blood Red Shoes reach their peak and with good timing...

ALTAR
31 March 2012 / White Label / 16 Trk Download
:: Butchers ::
...you just want to go out and shove this glorious collection of adrenaline in the faces of all those old farts from Britpop bands whose only function these days is to whinge to the NME that there are no exciting new guitar bands these days

THE PULSEBEATS
31 March 2012 / White Label / 10 Trk CD
:: The Pulsebeats ::
Urgent rhythms and svelte guitar chords, hurried by arrays of fast recycling riffs inform each number from this mischievous Santander outfit..
