False Advertising – Dozer
Seminal Manchester fuzz rock trio False Advertising have been building up to the release of their amazing debut album next month and have just sprung out a new video for Dozer, with some cool cameos from members of the current Manchester scene. In true FA style it’s packed with big riffs and heavy cymbals adding up to a real Sonic Youth esc pile of noise.
Southern Holiday – Higher
Full of energy and excitement, Southern Holidays second release is higher. A poptastic session of sound crammed with melody, harmony and hooks that boasts some of the finest female vocals around and smartest musical layers.
Richard Lomax – Hotel X
We’ve written about it before but now Richard Lomax has released Hotel X as a single while we expect his next full-length outing. Beautiful trembling guitars accompany the cleaver song writing and high energy Indie feel.
Sex Witch – Helelyos
Bat For Lashes new project Sexwitch see Natasha Khan cover psych and folk songs from the 1970’s. It’s a dark, muddle taste of the album to come, with all the sense of mystique and cool that’s always surrounded her. Sexwitch is an exciting step to the side for Khan so be sure to catch it at London’s XOYO September 25th.
Horsebeach – It’s Alright
One of the best things to come out of Manchester in the past few years was the self-titled Horsebeach debut, as they prepare to share their second outing, ‘II’, we get a taste with It’s Alright. Ryan Kennedy’s typical dreamy guitars and dreary vocals, which sound more confident then ever, are accompanied by heavenly female vocal line in what is certainly one of the best songs this outfit have put out to date.
