PARAKEET have returned with a brand new EP Pink Noise, which is out now via stalwart indie label Marshall Teller. The band is made up of one part Yuck (Mariko Doi) and one part The History Of Apple Pie ( James Llewelyn Thomas) and the EP is a jaunty pop follow up to their debut Shonon Hearts. Stream it in full below.

AMULET AT THE 100 CLUB – 16/07/2014

Amulet press shotAMULET are a recent SEXBEAT love affair. The London based band formed back in 2010 when its current members would meet at various shows and a love for the golden era of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock was shared.

Four years, and a Cut The Crap demo release later and the band are set to release their debut album later in the year. Riff heavy, short songs with catchy soaring vocals, their tracks envoke obvious comparisons to the likes of Sabbath and Metallica. Before the LP is released in September, the five-piece play the iconic 100 Club as support for US metal punks VALIENT THORR on 16th July.

Watch the video for Running Out Of Time, taken from the Cut The Crap DVD below. Tickets for the show are available here.



Jack Cooper of Mazes and Veronica Falls / The Proper Ornaments guitarist James Hoare have paired up for new project ULTIMATE PAINTING. The first track, taken from their forthcoming album due out on Trouble In Mind in October is a strolling piece of gentle guitar work. Listen below.



Our favourite two guys and a girl trio THRONE are back with a track heavy enough to rip your neck from your shoulder blades given the amount of force you’re likely to be giving each head thrust during it.

The suitably grand titled Ascender will be a part of debut EP Where Tharis Sleeps, released through Brighton Label Indian Face Recordings on 16th June.  Stream at your own risk below.


Okay, so here’s one for you if you’ve got 10 minutes or so to spare this afternoon. We first shared this track back in October of last year and now we’ve got this live video of MR ELEVATOR AND THE BRAIN HOTEL, going balls out and balls deep into to this hair raising examination of just how long you can ride the psych wave in the back of a van at Burgerama. Pretty long is the answer.



MOON GANGS’ debut EP is now available to stream in full via Clash Magazine below. Three tracks of all-consuming ten minute long ambient movie soundtrack-like instrumentals.

The EP is available from our store on limited edition screen printed 12″ and white label. Click here to buy.

Our very own MOON GANGS celebrates his EP launch on Tuesday 6th May at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington. Support comes from synth wave producer POLYMER.

New song II cements Moon Gangs’ way of being: What begins as a calming, cinematic recording soon morphs into a tense instrumental. In a live setting, this is the kind of thing that’d be met with giant plumes of smoke and piercing laser lighting. Both terrifying and a strange source of comfort, II is all about a fearsome balance between two extremes.
