London’s Wolf Alice are at once gritty-punk grungy, and at others homey-folk reflective. Formed in 2010, this now-quartet took until 2015 slowly developing their sound before a debut. That album, My Love is Cool, was among our favourites of last year. Since the start, they’ve only received good reviews; and for absolutely good reason.

 

Don’t miss out on the Nirvana flashbacks when they take to the stage on Sunday.

 


Songs:
Moaning Lisa Smile
Your Love’s Whore

Brighton by way of Brisbane garage rock outfit Animal House released ‘Figure It Out’ last month. And as luck would have it, we stumbled upon them right on time cause now we’ve finally got scratchy guitars and a youthfully raw energy to help us exercise our reckless abandon in the coming wanton summer.

White-Controlaltdelight-Spotlight

FULL POST

At just one year old, Glasgow 5-piece WHITE have been making heads talk. Their newest single, ‘Future Pleasure’, was just released and it is a frenetic glam-rock influenced track that mixes in dance-able rhythms. The blend of genres touched on come together as something greater than the sum of its parts. Leo Condie’s vocals tie it all together with a sense of theatrical hedonism a la track title.

 

For now, they’re land locked to tours in the UK, but with the excitement behind them, don’t be surprised if and when they blow up stateside within the year. Get the single and keep your ear on them.

Born in LA but grown in Miami, Nicky Blitz takes a scopic approach to pop and rock. Recent 5-tracker EP Hawk clearly affirms his ability to blend old-school influences with more modern esteems. Each song has a completely different feel which leaves us in awe of his range and definitely wanting more.

Rock was one of our first loves. RADKEY is a sibling trio that has recharged our emotions. Their driving basslines, ripping guitar solos, and thrash drumming have all the makings of a wonderfully riotous set. The baritone voice of eldest brother Dee adds Midwest flavour that only improves upon their tried and true rock’n’roll style.

 

They play Saturday. Expect to hear tracks from their forthcoming album. Come mosh.

 

Radkey – Romance Dawn

Radkey – Start Freaking Out

Radkey – Cat & Mouse

 

 

Mount-Elsewhere-controlaltdelight-spotlight-

FULL POST

Leave it to Mount Elsewhere to rise to the challenge of effectively encompassing all things indie rock. At once sounding Americana and folk-funky and the next experimental bluesy, they’ve developed a musical style that blends acoustic tradition with modern electronic experimentation. Throw in the vocals and it becomes weighty travelling music for sure.

 

This trio comes to us from Michigan and it definitely shows: maudlin lyricism on top of all-out jamming is their specialty. Get their debut album Heart and Soul.
