Bodega released their debut album Endless Scroll earlier this year to rave reviews from the likes of Observer, Guardian, Independent, Financial Times, The Times, DIY, Uncut and more. Recalling the rich history of New York’s musical heritage whilst keeping its sight on the future, Endless Scroll revitalizes the rock and roll vocabulary under the influence of post punk, contemporary pop, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative songwriting.

Endless Scroll was recorded and produced by Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) on the same Tascam 388 tape machine used for their LP Light Up Gold.

Green Mind presents PIROSHKA (members of Lush, Elastica, Moose...)

https://www.facebook.com/piroshkaband/

Piroshka is the Hungarian for Little Red Riding Hood, and gives a subtle nod to a certain red hairdo that stood out in the 1990s Brit-guitar-pop scene. It’s also the alter ego of four notable talents – Miki Berenyi (Lush), KJ ‘Moose’ McKillop (Moose), Mick Conroy (Modern English) and Justin Welch (Elastica).

Making gorgeous bittersweet, euphoric pop that is much more than the sum of the four parts, Piroshka’s music combines physical force with sublime delicacy and lyrics that reflect the brutal times we are currently living under. The band will be making their live debut in November 2018.

Cabbage return with brand new single ‘Torture’ on Thursday 28th February and have also announced an 11 date Spring headline UK tour.
 
‘Torture’ produced by James Skelly (Blossoms, The Coral, She Drew The Gun, The Mysterines) at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool is described by the band as “a combination of some hijacked philosophical crossroads and the belief in the human voice box. It’s our attempt at The Beach Boys if we ran out of money before getting the orchestra in. Nonetheless, with just a dose of pop and a terribly dour theme, it has come out just how we desired.”.
 
The single is a taster of what is to come from the follow up to ‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots’, the band’s critically acclaimed debut album release. The Mossley 5 piece have been busy preparing to hit the studio to record tracks for the new record some of which they will premiere at the forthcoming UK tour dates.
 
Tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am on Friday 1st March

If you asked a cross-section of people to name things that were musically naff, the Eurovision Song Contest would likely rank pretty highly across the board. If you were to then ask what qualities one would need to succeed at said venture, a lifelong love of Blur and The Breeders would probably swoop to the opposite end of the scale.

That’s likely why Amsterdam-born singer Pip Blom’s childhood dreams of competing in the cheesy pop spectacle never really got off the ground (an adolescent attempt at penning a tune with her best friend, in her own words, sucked). But TV’s loss is the indie world’s gain: now 21 and with a full band in tow, Pip’s honing a sweetly scuzzy sound that’ll trounce the competition with ease.

From their sudden and deliberate first chord on Love Keeps Kicking, beloved British punk collective Martha announce their intent to kick back. Across 11 tracks, these daughters and sons of Pity Me, England, show that, while our world might be in spiral, there is still plenty worth fighting for.

In many ways Love Keeps Kicking is a breakup record, with each song inhabiting different parts of the process. “This year blew my world apart” sings guitarist/vocalist Daniel Ellis on album opener “Heart is Healing.” With lush vocal harmonies (and one of the best riffs in Martha’s discography) “Healing” explores the uncomfortable period between love’s end, and when the heart is ready to move on.

Japanese musician Kenji Suzuki, better known as Damo Suzuki, is best known for his work with the pioneering German group Can. He is a vocalist and improvisational musician whose creative wanderlust has taken him around the world, performing with a dizzying variety of collaborators.

Suzuki had little experience as a musical performer before joining Can in 1970, but his bold, theatrical style and abstract lyrical sensibility put its stamp on three of the group’s most memorable albums (1971’s Tago Mago, 1972’s Ege Bamyasi, and 1973’s Future Days) before he left the group in 1973. A

After a decade away from music, Suzuki returned in 1983, shunning the recording studio in favor of improvised live performances, a number of which have been recorded and released, among them 2000’s Seattle, 2002’s P.R.O.M.I.S.E., and 2007’s The Fire of Heaven at the End of the Universe. Working with established groups as well as ‘sound carriers’ he often has never met before walking on-stage, Suzuki’s music in the 21st century has found him relentlessly exploring the boundaries of spontaneous creativity.
