Daughter.

January 22, 2012

Elena Tonra from London makes music under the name Daughter. She is one of the most talented and exciting young musicians I have had the stunning pleasure of watching play live in the last year. Honest, breathtaking and brilliant. You have a few hours left to download a free 3 track demos EP for the [...]

Inland Sea on Film

December 30, 2011

New video from Inland Sea, a 10 piece from Brisbane who first stole my heart with their debut Traitor EP. This is their new single, from a forthcoming more developed EP. They sound like bloody Fleetwood Mac here, which can only ever be a good thing. The band should be visiting the UK next year.

Dolfinz

December 18, 2011

I suck. Firstly, I haven’t blogged here in about three years, and secondly, I meant to write about this band so long ago and didn’t. Here’s to making amends. Dolfinz are a duo from Stonehaven, the town that spawned indie hearthrobs Copy Haho. Dolfinz don’t sound like Copy Haho, but probably draw on similar influences [...]

KnorX

November 24, 2011

I wasn’t expecting this one, and I’m still not totally sure what to make of it. KnorX is a new project between Jo and Jamie (Tubelord) and Tobi (Shoes and Socks Off). A heavily distorted grunge fuck, it’s like Big Black with less sentiment and worse intentions. You can name your price for their debut [...]

Someone Still Loves You…

November 20, 2011

Do you remember a few years ago when a load of bands came along with really long names and it seemed kind of dumb? Well, time has passed and now that we’re used to seeing bands with names like +”:

Fear Of Men

November 17, 2011

Here’s the first track from WFTC favourites Fear Of Men’s new limited cassette, Alice Munro Demos. Alice Munro Demos by FEAR OF MEN Fey and lo-fi, but with something of a darker soul, it’s a little like The Field Mice throwing fists at Veronica Falls. The band are on tour with Bos Angeles now… 17 [...]
