Monsters Mash

The Sighs of Monsters From: London, England London trio The Sighs of Monsters' magnus opus Jack sounds like Boehamian Rhapsody if it had been written by the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band. It's borderline genius. Listen Visit The Sighs of Monsters - Facebook : Website

Lore & Order

Murphys Lore From: Norwich, England After last night's post lamenting the results of the 2015 election I was pleased to stumble across Norwich five piece Murphys Lore's reinterpretation of Bowie's Five Years which cleverly equates Bowie's vision of Armageddon with an apocalyptic vision of Britain under Cameron's rule.

What Happened?

Suzerain From: London, England A couple of week's since the election and I'm still perplexed. How did a gang of right wing toffs who have spent five years tormenting the weak, the poor, the disabled, and the hungry persuade enough people...Show More Summary

Fresh Sounds - 24th May 2015

Howdy pop pickers another week, another selection of freshly baked toonage to make your world a whole lot brighter. Here are five songs to give your ears a damn good pleasuring... The Grand - Don't You Hate It when I'm Right? Hannah Scott - Hurricanes Suds - Stay Awake Sink or Soar - Piggy Got The Conch Mellor - I Don't Know Where You're Sleeping Tonight

V For Victory

Scribble Victory From: Derby, England In another Devil exclusive I can exclusively reveal the new video from one of my selections for this year's Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition, Scribble Victory. The video is for the track they submitted to the competition, the stunning I've Made Do Without. Show More Summary

Five Years That's All We Got

Feldspar From: London, England Five Years, the new single from Feldspar isn't, as I was initially hoping, a cover of the Bowie song. After the first hearing I'm glad that it's not a cover, as good as a Feldspar cover of Bowie would be, because a new Feldspar song is like a precious jewel to be loved and treasured.

A Kut Above

The Kut From: London, England I Don't Need Therapy, the new single from feisty London rockers The Kut (first featured on the blog way back in 2011, Video Killed The Radio Star 4th September 2011), has more attitude than a Courtney Love court appearance. Show More Summary

Here Comes The Summer

Summer is on it's way and to celebrate the onset of warm days, cold ice cream and sand between the toes here are five so summery you'll get a tan just by listening to them... Leggy - Chardonnay Summer Summer at The Grey Estates by The...Show More Summary

By Jingo

Jingo From: London, England When a band’s first-ever live show is supporting Blur’s Graham Coxon you know they're something special and with A.D.D. London trio Jingo don't disappoint. It's not often that a singer can send shivers down...Show More Summary

Fresh Sounds - 17th May 2015

More wonderful sounds from the Devil's larder to liven up your lives... Miya Folick - I Got Drunk Elf & Stacy - Nothing Slim Customers - Pretty Girl Luca Zoo Franzoni - Fables YouLoveHerCozShe'sDead - Down

Love Hurts

Auction for the Promise Club From: St Agnes, Cornwall, England Last year I described Cornish indie rockers Auction for the Promise Club as promising (These Promises Were Made For You). With their new single This May Hurt (released on 12th June) they've gone well beyond promising. Show More Summary

Thriving Ivory

Tusks From: London, England For You from Tusks, aka London singer songwriter Emily Underhill, is mesmerising. It envelops you, sweeping you gently away from the noise of the city into a cocoon of peace and senerity. It's cheaper and much more effective at relieving stress than a spa day. Show More Summary

Deadline Day

Los and the Deadlines From: London, England Feel at Ease from London based foursome Los and the Deadlines is hard to pin down, hard to summarise in one pithy, yet illuminating, sentence that's twitter ready. The closest I can get is that it sounds like a post rock Queens of the Stone Age if they’d been raised in the basement of CBGB’s. Show More Summary

Treasure Trove #1

Here are a just a few of the little treasures I've discovered this week while rummaging around the dark corners of the musical undergrowth... Pony Face - Hypnotised Hypnotised by Pony Face The Cave Children - Antigone Quasiland by The...Show More Summary

Bits n Pieces

John Joseph Brill From: Liverpool, England Pieces from John Joseph Brill sounds like Leonard Cohen if he'd been born under a statue exceedingly bare, it's a masterpiece of which the master of gloom would be proud. The song is a tragic...Show More Summary

Police State

Police Des Moeurs From: Montreal, Canada It could all have gone horribly wrong. A synth pop band covering relatively obscure punk bands from the 80s doesn't bode well. At best it could be a clash of cultures, at worst an absolute car crash. Show More Summary

Bill Nelson - I Swear That The Girl In The Painting Moved Luxury Lodge by Bill Nelson Nineties Boy - Go Get 'Em Mr Heaven - Just Like A Ninja Storm The Palace - Popular Science In Ruins by Storm the Palace Blonde Maze - Awake / Asleep Evan Tyler - My Girlfriend's Laptop

Basement Tape

Echotape From: London, England London rockers Echotape's latest single All My Days is a super-heated blast of rock solid indie that sounds ready made for the festival circuit. It's a bona fide anthem that's catchier than a superglued baseball glove. See you at the front of the mosh pit. Listen Visit Echotape - Facebook

Poll Dancing

It's election day in the UK and today's blog is devoted to bands and songs that represent the major parties battling it out for the hearts and minds (and possibly the pockets) of the great British public. While the future of the country...Show More Summary
