Listen to TALL TALKER

Tall Talker might not need an introduction. The Leeds-based instrumental trio formed in late 2014, have played shows with And So I Watch You From Afar, Delta Sleep, TTNG and more, and released their debut EP in 2018. They’ve been around.  If an excuse were needed to further recommend the work of drummer Sam Newham, bassist Josh Barnett, and guitarist […]

Listen to HONEYSPIDER

Honeyspider are evolving. Following a recent line-up change the Lancashire quartet’s fun, fuzzy shoegaze has expanded to include shades of post-rock and metal. A fresh taste of that is their new single, the dense and dynamic ‘Marbles’, out today. Those background screams are definitely a nice touch. The band’s 2017 ‘In a Haze’ EP was a solid effort that lived […]

Listen to IN PARALLEL

In Parallel have got some pedigree. The group count current and former members of Celebrity and Hopesfall in their ranks. The Tennessee outfit aren’t looking backwards here though, they aren’t relying on old glories. In fact, they seem to be doing their damnedest to shed their skin and start over. The band say they play “dramatic rock”, and while that’s […]

Listen to ONLY SIBLING

New York four-piece Only Sibling are serious about this. Frontman Alex Basovskiy holds a degree in finance but has turned his back on a potentially lucrative life in suits to pursue what he calls a bone-deep love of music. “There’s an intangible feeling that I get from playing music that I’m constantly chasing,” he says. “Even though it causes conflict […]

Listen to LOOSELEAF

Despite their name, Looseleaf are damn tight. The Essex-based four-piece have only been around for a couple of years but play their emotional alternative rock like seasoned professionals. Grey and Overgrown by Looseleaf The emotions they’re expressing feel fitting for times like these too- sadness, frustration, fighting apathy, and finding strength. The band released their debut EP, ‘Grey and Overgrown’, […]

Listen to KIDBUG

Does this count as a supergroup? Does it matter? Because while Kidbug contains erstwhile members of Swans, Best Coast, Eerie Wanda, and Dumb Numbers (with guest drums by Dale Crover, as you do), the best thing about them is a rare and intangible ingredient… Love! Singers/guitarists Marina Tadic and Adam Harding initially met to record Christmas songs for their label, […]

Listen to LØE

LØE play instrumental math rock, but that doesn’t mean the Leeds outfit don’t use words to communicate. Their debut self-titled EP, released back in January, is peppered with samples. Neatly employed snippets of great speeches and world events enhance the band’s mission “to capture and reflect triumph, heroism, anguish and struggle throughout society.” LØE – EP by LØE They use […]

Listen to GHOST WORK

Such pedigree here! Ghost Work is the new band from former members of Seaweed, Snapcase, Milemarker, and Minus the Bear. And if that’s not intriguing enough without hearing a note then you’re probably on the wrong website. The end result, though, doesn’t really sound like any of those bands. Anyone familiar with vocalist Aaron Stauffer’s previous work with Seaweed and […]

Listen to GANSER

At a time when it sounds like a ton of punk bands have started gazing at their shoes, Chicago quartet Ganser feel like a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Blending lean, frantic guitars with a wall of noise, the steadfastly DIY outfit’s 2018 debut, ‘Odd Talk’ was a signal flare. They have fleshed out their sound with […]

Listen to OVERSIZE

Oversize are brand new. But despite the fact that the Bristol four-piece only played their first show at the end of last year, they already feel like the realest of deals. Chains by Oversize While still honing their sound, they’ve tapped into a rich seam of sun-baked, alt-rock energy. Their first single was a peachy indie throwback (with visuals to […]
