I have watched in awe at the buzz that this band has generated explode like wildfire across the music scene in London. The main players in this constantly evolving unit are a mesmerizing fuse of drum & bass, flamenco, and dare I say it, indie. A regular in The Local Posse sessions, they are a [...]
It’s been a while since we last heard the clamorous sound of We Have Band, but for obvious reasons. Having toured extensively in 2009, the London-based trio took the later part of last year to enter the studio with producer Gareth Jones (Grizzly Bear, Interpol, Depeche Mode, These New Puritans). Now, the debut We Have Band album is due to drop in a few days.
London-based Scanners will be dropping their Stephen Hague (New Order) produced sophomore album, Submarine, next week on Dim Mak. The band are then headed to South by Southwest. We have a free download of their second single, We Never Close Our Eyes [listen here] in our Music Download section [psst, it's in the third column [...]
I’m totally on a huge doom metal kick lately, and Pantheist are one of the more interesting bands I’ve heard lately.

However, Honey Ryder defy tradition, turning the old-fashioned business model on its head and successfully combining the two. The London-based duo — Martyn Shone and Lindsay O’ Mahony — have honed their writing and performing skills over the last two years.
London-based indie-prog group Klaxons take their name from the Greek word ‘to shriek’. We interviewed vocalist and keyboardist, Jamie Righton, and asked him why, unlike many of their contemporaries, none of them grew up to become great footballers: ‘Me and Simon are from Stratford-upon-Avon and the only famous footballer to ever come from there is Gary Barnett! Jamie’s from Bournemouth and there are even less from there. I was asked to play for the Tottenham Hotspur Legends and Celebrities team in a new Sky TV programme but it clashes with our US tour. Gutted’.
