- Factory Star – Angel Steps – Enter Castle Perilous – as reviewed elsewhere on this blog – an absolutely stunning album from Martin Bramah and his band of strolling minstrels. This is the opening track from the release – just listen to the poetry in the lyrics.
- Miacca – I’ve Got A Boyfriend Now – Demo – amazing stuff from Swansea’s high tempo ska specialists.
- The Jar Family – In for a penny – Livingston Session EP – another track from this fine EP from a North East collective now living down south Cambridge way.
- Bikini Test Failure – Sarah Tonin – Fleecing the Easily Pleased – another glorious track from James’ second album.
- My Pet Monster – Soundtrack – Demo – for some reason I am getting a lot of demos from South Wales – here is another band from the Cardiff area
- Vessels – Monoform – Helioscope – post rock chaps from Leeds ….. this is from the new album which was recorded in Dallas (that would be Texas)
- Moff Skellington – Following The Dead Men Home – Embers From The Rapid Eye – glorious new music from the as yet unreleased new album, which is brimming with marvellous new music, from Otley’s eccentric and amazing troubadour.
- Dubside – Child Don’t You Cry – Demo – a little bit of dub reggae from Manchester.
- Crystal Stilts – Sycamore Tree – In Love With The Oblivion – a phenomenal new album from New Yorks finest exponents of minimalist psychedelia – every track is a classic and none more so than the opener.
- The Suns – Surf’s Up Nightmare – EP – Chester’s finest proponents of garage, and surf. They play Sounds from the Other City on May 1st at the Crescent (with a C).
- Six Organs of Admittance – Brilliant Blue Sea Between Us – Asleep On The Floodplain – another album from the very productive Ben Chasny – around about number 16 (or possibly more) in the series of releases.
- Factory Star – Stone Tumbling Stream – Enter Castle Perilous – and they also play the Sounds from the other city gig on May 1st.
- Yes – Roundabout – Fragile – a guilty pleasure, I remember being gob-smacked by how different this was from the Yes Album when it came out.
