LONG DIVISION PREVIEW (or) WHERE YOU COULD POSSIBLY FIND ME IN WAKEFIELD

May 31, 2012 by

0

Long Division is the sort of festival where things can get a bit mental. Like the Great Escape several years ago, this is an event that’s on the rise. Each year brings a better slate of bands, and most importantly, the Yorkshire talent is always rather brilliant – and this year is no different. Each […]

RUNAROUND KIDS / WE ARE LOSERS: split EP

May 30, 2012 by

0

It’s been a busy year for Runaround Kids – and it’s not quite June yet. Whilst we’ve covered the band quite in the last several months, there’s always something new to say, whether it’s a gig, festival appearance, or a new release. This time it’s the latter, a split EP with Dublin band We Are […]

ST. GREGORY ORANGE: new album

May 14, 2012 by

0

The kind folks over at Philophobia sent this record over to us some time ago, and to be honest, I didn’t know what to make of it. St. Gregory Orange is a band I’d heard a lot about, but I’d never given them the time – and the first listen wasn’t promising. But as is […]

Whilst I’ve been to a gig from Wakefield’s The Passing Fancy in the past, unfortunately they were one of those bands I forgot about, mostly due to the glut of good music out there these days. It was only because of a lovely natter on Twitter with them that I was able to jog my […]

What a fun song, this. We’re quite happy to have The Cribs back for another album, their first once since the departure of Johnny Marr. Whilst In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull isn’t released until 7 May (via Wichita), the first single “Come On, Be A No-One” hits shops this Monday 16 April. Visit […]

PISKIE SITS

April 6, 2012 by

Whilst putting together this post, I ran through Piskie Sits’s EP The Way I’d Like To Go a few times, mentally ticking off what I fancy about the band. What strikes me most about the Wakey group is their seamless marriage of Americana and ’90s indie rock, something that the Idaho-based Built to Spill has […]
