Arc of the Covenant

Arc From: Leeds, England There are a lot of heart rendingly beautiful tracks on my Glastonbury Emerging Talent list this year. Decay from Leeds singer/songwriter Arc is another song with an endearing vulnerability that has my eyes dampening and my heart aching. Show More Summary

Broken Art

Artemis From: The place where broken hearts go I'm still making my way through this year's Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition list and uncovering some little undiscovered gems. Far Away from Artemis and her compadre Greg is spine chillingly beautiful. Show More Summary

Witching Hour

Ariel Undine From: London, England On the intense and contagious Crash Ariel Undine aka SeaWitch sounds like a slightly less bonkers, focused Lene Lovich. A wise man once said there's a fine line between genius and insanity and Ms Undine walks the line like a gold medal winning Olympic gymnast.ListenVisitAriel Undine - FacebookSeeAriel UndineBroken Bird

April Showers

April From: Nuneaton, England It's time to settle down for the judging of this year's entries to the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition again and it's already proving to be a much harder task than previous years. I'm only threeShow More Summary

Rael Life

Max RaelFrom: The tongue in cheek punk of In Debt With The Council from multi-instrumentalist, engineer and producer Max Rael sounds like the missing link between Alternative TV and Art Brut and in my book that's a truly wonderful thing.ListenVisitMax Rael - Website

Weekend Delight

Tacocat From: Seattle, United States I'm a sucker for upbeat dayglo fast and furious pop and they don't come much poppier than I Hate The Weekend from the palindromic Seattle quartet Tacocat. On their facebook page they describe themselves...Show More Summary

Killer Queens

Queen of Jeans From: Philadaelphia, United States When we last encountered Philadelphia trio Queen of Jeans they'd announced their presence to the world with their unashamedly retro and rather splendid debut single Dance (Get Off Your Ass). Show More Summary

See Emily Play

Here Comes Trouble

Taffy Trouble From: London, Facebook Backseat Driver from London duo Taffy Trouble is an infectious, irreverant slice of dayglo pop with more sass than a backchatting teenager after a sass overdose. If you take a portion of the TingShow More Summary

Twisted Sister

Sisteray From: London, England It's looking like 2016 is going to be a great year musically speaking. Last night Low Cut High Tops served up a contender for the Devil's top tracks of 2016 (Highs and Lows) and less than 24 hours later...Show More Summary

Highs and Lows

Low Cut High Tops From: Seattle, United States It's early on in 2016 but I've already uncovered a track that could well be in my end of year list of favourite songs of the year. Lonely and Cold from Seattle's David Burns aka Low Cut High Tops is a lo-fi beauty that stomps around your ears like Marc Bolan in hob nailed boots. Show More Summary

The Devil's Tips for 2016 #10

Vant From: London, England Vant sound like The Strokes with any hint of insouciance replaced with a punky intensity and a rocket up the arse. They're a ballistic missile aimed straight at the bland city trader music that drips from the...Show More Summary

The Stars Look Very Different Today

It's been a week since the news filtered through that David Bowie was dead. A week later and it's still hard to accept that he's gone. Any vestiges of hope that it might be a mistake and that he'd rise again like the Lazarus of his last single have been extinguished and we're forced to accept that it's true. Show More Summary
