Babeshadow
Bristly dandies with moonbeam ballads and jangle jives. Warming up for Florence at the moment. Radio love a'brewing.

Mount Kimbie
Perilous hybrid of post-rock expanses and post-dubstep propulsions. Warmed-up for Dan Decon and collaborated with James Blake.

Visions Of Trees
Disturbed, techie plumes of electronics and murderous melody from LDN girl/boy duo. Remixes under their belt for Everything Everything and plenty of gigs to come.

The Heartbreaks
Well-tailored Morecambe indie-boys with heavy hearts and smoky soul. Doing big thing up in the northwest.

These Monsters
Mangled, sax-flecked quasi-doom from this Leeds' five-piece, hooked up with the ever messy Radar profiled Brew Records.
