Catherine AD


Catherine A.D. who, following the release of three DIY EPs has unveiled the first in a succession of free remixes to support her performance at this year’s Latitude festival (Sunrise Arena, Sunday 19th July 5pm). The Sweet Billy Pilgrim remix of ‘Hand To The Tide’ can be downloaded from here…

If you don’t think she’s the bees knees then may I humbly submit that you trade in your ears for a nice set of steak knives, because you  quite cleary do not deserve to have had the  gift of hearing bestowed upon you…;)

The Raveonettes new album will be called “In And Out Of Control” and will be released October 6th . Exclusive album Demos available here

Follow them on twitter here and read an interview we did with Sharin here


La Roux

At the end of 2008 21 year old Elly Jackson, aka La Roux, arrived with a whirlwind of excitement surrounding her – she bagged a top 5 single, the support slot on Lily Allen’s national tour, and has had  everyone from Franz Ferdinand to Daft Punk hailing her as a talent to watch. Now, the iconic redheaded Brixton girl unleashes her highly anticipated eponymous debut album which is  somewhat surprisingly entitled “La Roux” on the British public. It’s an album packed with great electro pop which at times makes potato faced castrato, Jimmy Somerville sound like a deep rumbling baritone in the Christopher Lee mould.  As  new electro pop superstars go,  she certainly fits “The Bill“. You can hear the whole album  streamed HERE .


Michael Jackson Dead


Ooops sorry !!!Not that one this one!

Wacko psd

Marcus Brigstocke pretty much nailed the  Jackson Affair


Lisa Mitchell


18-year-old folk-pop singer songwriter Lisa Mitchell released her debut UK single ‘Neopolitan Dreams’ on July 6th.

Born in England to a Scottish father, Lisa moved to Australia at three years old and made it her home. She grew up in something of a musical timewarp, grateful to her father for raising her on Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens and Van Morrison, all the while finding obsessions of her own, like Bright Eyes. Check her out on myspace


The Maccabees

The Maccabees  new single, “Can You Give It“, is out , and comes backed with a brass band rendition of the song as a b-side on 7-inch, which is available for free, here, plus you can read an interview the band did with Laura Barton.

“We had to do some B-sides,” says Orlando Weeks, the band’s lead singer with the posh name, “Quite a lot of the record touched on brass, so I thought it would be nice to go the whole hog.

The band were in the Radio 1 Live Lounge performing “Can You Give It” and a cover of Black Eyed Peas’ Boom Boom Pow.
