Tuff n Stuff Giantess
4 piece from Boston, currently touring with the excellent Passion Pit and delighting all i would imagine with their sweeping synths and 80′s inflected Dan Blackesque tunes.
London based yet Salopia bred this 4 piece do a fine line in angular guitars, Jam-esque chords and disaffection. All with a suitably laddy swagger.
A Mile On Broken Legs Luke Sital Singh
A bit of folk, a bit of acoustic angst and alot of feeling go to mark this Brighton based chap out as a little different from the many other singer songwriters out there.
One Week to Live Profisee
Excellent Edinburgh based MC and beat monger who’s been putting out great tracks for a while now. If he was based out of anywhere but Auld Reekie, he’d have a bigger following, but his time must surely be coming…
Pulling Pushups Copy Haho
Here’s another band who were on the cusp throughout 2008 and must surely get a crack of the whip in 2009. For whip smart they are, and purveyors of melodic indie pop in the vein of Los Campesinos!
Purple Rain The Chihuahuas
Ah Stevie Donnelly, you card you. A series of flicking great banjo based covers from this Glasgow based band. Go to their page for the rest, including a great I Fought the Law…
27 Russian Friends RBRBR
Excellent dance inflected doom pop from Edinburgh,as picked up by my old mucker Vic Galloway.Go on yoursel’ gents.
One Night In October Little Comets
This band are getting better and better. Indie pop with balls and a great soaring vocal.
Annie Kid British
Clever, upbeat, fun indie from these The Enemy tourmates. This is currently being given away on their page. An early Christmas present.
Chateau Brute Chorus
This band wear great shoes.FACT. We’ve played them before, but evolving at a fast rate, so here’s their latest almost rockabilly track. To be filed alongside Dirty Pretty Things jamming with the White Stripes.
