Notes in respect of the above:

  1. From the forthcoming album – they support Martin Rev at the Academy on Saturday 26th May.
  2. Manchester band who have a new album called “Lining Up Spoons”
  3. Salford based blues band – debut album ‘Can’t Hold Out’  available at shows for £10, and they are also selling a 10-track digital version for only £7 at www.fuschi4.bandcamp.com . The band will be playing a few festivals over the coming months, starting with Hebden Bridge Blues Festival,   Main Stage on Saturday 2nd June.  Maryport Blues Festival between 27th – 29th July, and  The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival in Colne between 24th – 27th August.
  4. Last year, under the name Milk Maid, Martin Cohen released Yucca, a fuzzy, jangling record that switched genres with each track. On one song, the Manchester bedroom artist would paint himself as a 1990s indie rock devotee. On the next, he’d be fingerpicking a quiet, echoing folk song. With “Do Right”, the first track he’s letting go from Mostly No (June 26 in the US, July 9 in the UK via FatCat), the shapeshifting continues. Here, he takes the form of a screeching, reverb-drenched West Coast grunge fan. He sings about California, he bookends the song with feedback, and halfway in, he rips through a tossed off guitar solo. Given his history, it’s fair to wonder if the album will stray from this song’s faux-slacker punk aesthetic.
  5.  This summer, Stella Marconi are releasing their debut album ‘STOP: Await Instructions’ through IMR. They have previously released two EP’s to fantastic receptions, both of which can be found on their SoundCloud page. Playing previous high profile support slots with bands such as ‘The Indecent’ (Warner Bros USA), on their inaugural UK dates, and ‘To Kill A King’ (Virgin), the band are establishing themselves not only on the national, but global music stage.
  6. Manchester band – featured before on the show – this is from their first EP.
  7. As featured previously from the new EP
  8. Acoustic Trio from Hulme- this is their first release.
  9. From the new album – available from Bandcamp – this track shows the more experimental side of Danny’s work.
  10. From Huddersfield which is near enough to count of regionally local – Silence Rises formed in 2010 and set out to write a set of huge anthemic indie tunes.
    Drawing on a rich song writing talent present between all five members, the band continue to focus their style in to well crafted, hook filled, venue filling music with huge towering bursts which take the listener on a dynamic audio journey. Recent highlights include the band being selected by indie legends The Wedding Present to support them on two of their 2011 UK tour dates. The band were also selected by Tim Burgess and a panel of music representatives to play the 2011 Friends of Mine Festival. As a result of these fantastic opportunities and constant gigging around the North of England a real buzz is starting to form around them.
  11. They have been absent for the last couple of years working on their album – but they are back with a flourish. See notes elsewhere on this blog.
  12. Lead single from the new EP Ubuntu. Currently gigging in Denmark but will be back for dates in Manchester in early June.
  13. Another class piece of pop from the Moston pooches.
  14. Received an intriguing package from this Manchester based duo. The Wailer Pilot Study – Stephen (Vocals/Bass/Keys/Samples) and Kieran (Vocals/Guitar/Beats/) favour drum loops over a live drummer and huge, dirty guitars over jangly indie tones. The sound of the WAILER PILOT STUDY is an Electronic/Cinematic/Rock mix. All instruments are played live by the 2 members.
  15. Preview track from the forthcoming album “Beat on the Moans”.
  16. A classic track from a classic release.
