new: Last Days of 1984, Tunabunny, Pet Scenes, Mood Rings, Owensie and Lorum Ipsum

Lineup confirmed for the next Drop-Out in Powers, Kilburn! Will post links and mp3's and info but just a heads up for the moment that it'll be Birthday Sex, Jewellers and Le Galaxie on October 13th for free!! More info here.

Now down to business.

  • Last Days of 1984 sound like blips, beeps and beats made by whales. For a sweet party "under de sea" sample some delightful tuneage on Soundcloud. Woods is getting a nice bit of attention at the moment and rightly so.

  • Picked this one up via Great Pumpkin Records (Tom is the only music blogger I've met in real life, he's lovely, we had pints) ...Tunabunny are the band, have a listen to their sweet alt/90's/lo-fi sounds and then check his blog out for the proper rundown.

  • Missed Pet Scenes at 1234 in Shoreditch during the summer, which I was gutted about as it's just my kinda thing. Foreboding, on edge and sharp, for fans of Fugazi, Nine Inch Nails, Grinderman or anything that would sound at home in a dingy basement lit by a single naked lightbulb. Can't wait to see them live soon, they're playing The Borderline on Sept. 29th and Old Blue Last on Oct. 14th. This is their new E.P, Idle Children.

  • Mood Rings make the kinda music I'm listening to loads of at the moment (Gross Magic, Fanzine, Sea Pinks), jingle jangle, slacker whatever. Sure it's pastiche or throwback or whatever but, ya, whatever.

  • Heard Owensie a while back but never wrote about him. Organic instrumentation, tuneful and sweet, complimented with his rich vocal tones. Debut album, Aliens out now on Out On A Limb. Dates in the UK up on his bandcamp page, I hear he's well worth hearing live. Also, check out his Soundcloud page for some excellent remixes by the likes of Sert One, Lar from Adebisi Shank and this one from Toby Kaar.

  • Finally, Lorem Ipsum: On hearing Ruwluk I didn't know what to make of the rough cut cassette destruction before my ears, but once it kicked in I was instantly enthralled. All of his stuff is well worth checking out. Catch them at Hard Working Class Heroes in Dublin ...Owensie is playing two, as are many many other excellent Irish acts but more about that soon.
