Day 153 Nick Mulvey – Fever To The Form

Following my posts on Nitrous and his most recent single Cucurucu, tonight’s post delves a little further into Mulvey’s recent past, as I focus on his brilliant single, Fever To The Form. Floating like a dream, Fever To The…

The Presets - Goodbye Future

Day 152 The Presets – Goodbye Future

I first discovered Australian duo The Presets and their song If I Know You a few years back, and its remained a hidden gem on my mp3 ever since.

Rare Monk - Splice

Day 145 Rare Monk – Splice

Premièred a couple of weeks back on The Line Of Best Fit, Portland based experimental indie-rockers Rare Monk’s new single Splice is a sun-kissed slice of emphatic psychedelic indie. Combining their 90’s rock and 80’s psychedelic influences, Rare Monk manage to translate these ageing genres perfectly into 2014, adding a spectrum of hazy, anthemic melodies…

Last week, Saint Raymond aka. Callum Burrows popped into Zane Lowe’s show on Radio 1 to perform a live session.at world famous Maida Vale studios.
