Session: Revere for 6 Music
Here’s an old session we dug out of Revere for 6 Music. They are one of our favourite live bands, and their control of tension/release is at its best in this performance of ‘I Can’t (Forgive Myself)’. They are back playing for us on April 4th, and also play at Field Day.

New song: Arthur Beatrice - Midland
Here’s another Arthur Beatrice song that emerged today. It’ll be released on their own OAR label in March (a plush 12” follows in April). It sets the scene nicely for the now sold out show next week and we can’t wait to hear some more.

Only two shows this week but two that are raising the temperature already. Here are our gigs of the week: Loney Dear - Monday - Bush Hall We are hugely excited to present Loney Dear at Bush Hall - returning after his beautiful set towards the end of last year. This time he brings a full band in tow (for the first time since 2008) and that qualifies this show as doubly-unmissable. There are...

Stream: Grimes - Visions
The new Grimes record has attracted a healthy new sum of fans to her bizzaro world pop-jams - a very good thing in our books. The album is one of our favourites of the year (make sure to check out late-album highlight ‘Skin’!) and is now streaming for your pleasure at NPR - the album stream website de jour. STREAM GRIMES - “VISIONS”
This Week's Gigs
Another week and another three shows for us to get ridiculously excited about. Matthew Bourne - Wednesday - Cafe OTO The first of which takes us to Cafe OTO and a performance from piano maestro Matthew Bourne.

Video: Loney Dear - Blues
Here’s a new video for ‘Blues’ by Loney Dear who plays for us next Monday. This is one for the romantics out there ahead of the big day tomorrow.
Loney Dear- I Love You (In With The Arms)

New Song: Outfit - Dashing in Passing
That images above, like the sticker on a VHS heralds the first new music from Outfit since last Autumn’s wonderful ‘Two Islands’. This one is a bit of a sleight of hand - rumbling bass, pitched up vocals and slo-mo hooks - but holds up to the band’s big promise. An EP is coming soon and we are very excited.
Kindness - Gee Up
Here is a hilarious video from Kindness who we just announced to play XOYO in March. Watch right through to the end and join us in calling for a feature-length!
