13 December 2016

Last regular show of the year.

Froth - Contact
Kind of mixing krautrock and psych and shoegaze. A heady mix. These are from LA and this is the lead single from the new LP Outside (briefly).

Orange Bomb - School Disco
Four-piece DIY garage band from Surrey. I like the cut of their jib.

Arro Jones - Great Northern Street
Local artist with a story about the working girls down that Huddersfield byway.

Featured album: The Wedding Present - George Best
What Did Your Last Servant Die Of?
Well why not? I bloody love the Weddoes. Feels like I always have. George Best was their first album, released in 1987 after a few singles. It chuffing ace and has one of the coolest covers ever.

Toy - Another Dimension
Their first two albums were a big hit here and here comes the third. Clear Shot is out now, but without the driving keyboards of the departed Alejandra Diez, it's a different sound. I want to like it and there are a couple of good ideas here, just that they're lacking a unifying... thing. I dunno. Maybe I need to listen to it more, I think.

Dead Naked Hippies - Lights Out
To Leeds for this one. A three-piece with their debut single.

New Apostles - Avalanche
Back from a lengthy hiatus a couple of years back, here's a new single from the Nottingham outfit who are making up for lost time.

The Nightingales - Booze, Broads And Beauty
Speaking of Midlands veterans... This is off the new EP Become Not Becoming which is up for pre-order now.

Neurotic Fiction - Mediator
On the ever-reliable Art Is Hard label, a follow-up to their debut EP.

Featured album: The Wedding Present - George Best
You Can't Moan, Can You?
The closing track from the album. And signs of what the band would be were already surfacing as they emerged from this with a different drummer.

Allo Darlin' - Hymn On The 45
A farewell now, as Allo Darlin' are calling it a day and this is their final single. There are a handful of shows and then that's it.

Bad Family - My Body Pines
From their imaginatively titled debut EP, EP1

TCF - NLeZ7tnzzjTXBsMtD1OO0xPEZ0MmnSKsGZA/yHfSV1gfKH+//xR9oW+uUJO4i3N0lRghdsuEoRSOKjJMZApfoA==
Catchy title. Berlin-based composer TCF has this out now, on 10" vinyl and in a vacuum-sealed silver bag. Of course.



and Bandcamp:

Christmas special next week.
