“Straight out of south London and determinedly DIY, Goat Girl are feisty, furious and fearless. Their incendiary rock, with shades of mid-noughties Cat Power and Medway garage girls Thee Headcoatees, challenges everything from national apathy in to the perils of public transport on Creep on the Train. The latter features the refrain “I really want to smash your head in,” and while singer and guitarist Lottie’s vocals are delivered deadpan, the firestorm of sharp riffs, pounding rhythms and defiant bass make the anger palpable.” The Guardian

Kiran Leonard has announced a brand new album Western Culture, released 19th October 2018 on Moshi Moshi. Ahead of this, he shares its lead single “Paralysed Force”.

Kiran Leonard: “”Paralysed Force” is about how insecurities you should settle within yourself often get transplanted onto other people you know. Projecting the question towards another allows you to shirk responsibility for your own wellbeing, but all this does is suspend the issue at hand, and prolong an inevitable falling back.

“There’s also a sort of compulsiveness, a wanting to be suspended, that’s involved in it all, because sometimes it feels good not to have to think about yourself. I suppose the song’s about being caught between those two points — basically, that even if you know you’re being irresponsible (and possibly daft), there’s still a desire to give yourself up.”

The album Western Culture marks a huge sonic progression due, in part, to the involvement of his venerable live band (Andrew Cheetham on drums, Dave Rowe on bass and Dan Bridgewood-Hill on guitar, synth and violin) on record for the first time. It is also the first Kiran Leonard album to have been made in a professional studio.

“If there’s any worth still left in going to university, it’s the opportunity to meet people from other places, broaden your horizons and realise that horizons are fairly bleak no matter where you’re from. Such is the story of Her’s, a warped jangle-pop duo consisting of Stephen Fitzpatrick from Barrow and Audun Laading from Kristiansand, Norway, who met studying music in Liverpool and formed a bond over shared humour and coastal town life.” London in Stereo

BC Camplight returns this summer with Deportation Blues, his second album for Bella Union, available 24th August via the label. Camplight has shared the title track of the LP, which is streaming HERE, along with an album trailer, which can be viewed HERE. An extensive UK tour for the Autumn has also been announced, the dates of which can be found further down.

“You shouldn’t have a tough time finding the angle to Deportation Blues,” claims Brian ‘BC Camplight’ Christinzio. “The past few years have been a f*cking nightmare.”

But what a f*cking great record he’s made off the back of his nightmare… Deportation Blues is an exhilarating, dynamic document of calamity and stress, relayed through richly melodic and bold arrangements spanning singer-songwriter classicism, gnarly synth-pop, ‘50s rock’n’roll and various junctures between, mirroring their maverick creator’s jarred emotions and fractured mindset.

Back in early 2015, after years battling battling addiction and mental illness, and having relocated from the US to Manchester, BC Camplight released the album How To Die In The North to rave reviews and the future was looking bright. So imagine his mood when he immediately fell foul of UK immigration: “I’d had such high hopes for the album, and I was told I was being deported two days after it came out, and banned from the UK. The next thing I know, I’m playing Pac Man in my parents’ basement in New Jersey, thinking, this is my life now.”

Occasional gigs in Europe, where his Manchester-based band could meet him, broke up the monotony, but it was still like “living in a constant panic attack.”

But then the cavalry arrived! Courtesy of his grandparents, Christinzio secured Italian citizenship. It cost time, money and a portion of his sanity, “but after a year and a half I could finally shove my Italian papers in their faces at the airport and return to sunny Manchester. The thing is, despite being American, I feel Mancunian, and I couldn’t think about making another record, until I got back.”

To add insult to injury, “Brexit happened, like a day after I got back. Can I get a f*cking break here, please?”

Once the dust had settled, Christinzio realised, “I didn’t feel any better, I had so much anger, I felt destroyed. The demons were back and had lost me friends, I’d drunk too much, and I felt nothing but dread and disease. I thought, I can’t wait to hear what this next album is going to sound like.”

They emit smelting loud, visceral political punk rock with enigmatic, psychedelic poetry and diverse, raw music which takes them over, live on stage, forcing them to pour everything they’ve got into frenzied performances, leaving only blood-stained instruments behind. This verging-on madness experience is shocking audiences out of austerity inflicted apathy, into instant obsession.

Green Mind & Cambridge Jazz Festival presents YAZMIN LACEY

Soul meets jazz meets good times.  Her last appearance at The Portland was a triumph.

“f you have even a passing interest in the last 40 years of dance culture, Norwich duo Sink Ya Teeth’s debut is sure to sound familiar—and that’s the point. Maria Uzor and Gemma Cullingford’s self-titled album is a veritable archive of au courant reference points: the rubbery basslines of Liquid Liquid, ESG’s call-and-response dance-punk, the alluring menace of dark disco, New Order’s synthetic ecstasy, the cold atmospherics of electro. These sounds have been revived before, notably during the 2000s, as the retro-futurist electroclash movement and the side-long revelries of early DFA gave way to bloghouse, a microgenre that played fast and loose with dance music’s past. Now, nostalgia for ’80s club music also calls back to that period.

But Sink Ya Teeth surpasses mere genre mimicry, as Uzor and Cullingford channel the feeling as well as the sounds of classic dance music. Style is easy to copy, but attitude is hard to fake, and Sink Ya Teeth have plenty of the latter. “I feel a little depressed/A little melancholy at best,” they intone in deadpan unison on breakout single “If You See Me,” their disaffection a perfect match for the dry beat and rubbery bass. In an interview with M magazine, Uzor described the squiggly track “Pushin’” as channeling a “frenzied and almost sexualized addiction to religion and salvation.” When she sings, “And when the sermon begins/She feels the tears of a thousand years of sin/But he keeps pushin’,” it evokes dance music’s long relationship with carnality and guilt, from Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” to the opening of LCD Soundsystem’s 45:33.” Pitchfork

Self Esteem is the brand new project from Rebecca Taylor.

10 wonderful years in a successful indie band, and Rebecca finds herself musically re-incarnated. Self Esteem is the next chapter of her enthralling story. Drawing influence from everything and anything – pop culture, the dark and light within her own life, her experiences on the road in a band that she loved but was no longer the place for her creatively, and the freedom that came from stepping away – her new sound is dramatic, direct and deafeningly exciting.

Tony Wright is best known as the singer for Bradford rock band Terrorvision. However, when he’s not touring with Terrorvision, he writes, records and tours under his own name with a setlist made up of songs he has written on his acoustic guitar – some upbeat, some melancholic, but all thought-provoking.

To say Tony is a busy man would be an understatement. In addition to his three albums with his post-Terrorvision band ‘LaikaDog’, he has now released two solo albums to date with a third one in the works. ‘Thoughts ‘n’ All’ is just Tony and his acoustic guitar. The follow up, ‘Walnut Dash’, released last year brought the evolution of Tony with his acoustic guitar and a full band.Tony will be out and about picking up inspiration anywhere he can find it in preparation for the new release. Be sure to catch him on the road because you never know – you might just end up being the subject of one of his songs.
