    DUMB
    Dumb are an alternative indie band from Birmingham formed in 2013. ” Influenced by the likes of Pavement, The Cribs and cult American indie rock heroes Built To Spill, Dumb’s transatlantic, guitar-heavy sound and self-assured swagger has already caught the attention of NME and BBC Radio 1. Made up of slick melodies and infectious hooks fronted singer Dylan Williams’ rasping vocal tones, the band are distinguishing themselves from the rest of what the Midlands has to offer musically.

    KAIA
    This pretty pop orchestra originally stems from the far north of Norway. There is also some Czech, Berlinian and Copenhagening in the mix. All of which are places. KAIA has been described as weird, lighthearted, “pop-ish”, raw, refreshing and unique. With an 80s vibe and a strong love for melodies, KAIA is sure to make your day simultaneously better and worse at the same time. But in a good way. There will be plenty of playful yet gloomy tunes with underground pop harmonies.

    YOUTH CLUB
    Inspired by summer and all things colourful, the band are not confined by the boundaries of any particular genre but draw influence from many styles; soulful vocals, pop choruses, synths and warm guitars – the authentic sound of summer.

    Youth Club’s crisp production could have come from Phillipe Zdar’s mixing board, and could see the band mistaken for long lost brothers of Phoenix or Two Door Cinema Club; a testament to the bands sound.

The live set is a constantly shifting beast with twists and turns and by the end of your time with Kamara you’re left in no uncertain terms that there’s something very special there. Highly recommended as a must see band”

    The Scenes

    Jet Setter
    Jet Setter are following up their debut single ‘Not Yet’ with another 2 minutes full of hooks and great guitars called ‘Dippin’ Toes’. The four-piece, signed to Dublin’s Any Other City label (Girl Band, Villagers), have received praise from both sides of the Atlantic for ‘Not Yet’ and its flipside ‘Cut Shorts’. From their first practice onwards Jet Setter realised how good it feels to play straight-to-the-point, fuzzy Indie-Rock, which translates organically into their live show. ‘Dippin’ Toes’ is released on October 17th, complemented with an Irish and UK tour.

    Jehst X Strange U

    Jehst joins forces with space cadet duo Strange U for a UK tour this November! A rare opportunity to see the celebrated lyricist as he takes a short break from working on his forthcoming album to bring his unique brand of Hip Hop to the stage; alongside inter-dimensional oddballs Strange U!

    JEHST
    Having been at the forefront the UK’s Hip-Hop scene for the past decade and a half, Jehst has asserted himself as possibly the most influential rapper to ever emerge from these shores.

    Bursting onto the scene in 1999 with the cult-classic ‘Premonitions’, the independently released EP was hailed by critics and fans alike for its poetic vocals and forward-thinking production; launching the now iconic YNR Productions label and the career of this truly inspirational artist. Pushing the boundaries of his chosen art-form while providing the blueprint for countless sound-alikes, Jehst’s sound has defined a generation. With a discography now stretching into triple figures his career has been typified by a restless creativity and side-projects galore.

    With a fiercely loyal fan-base spread not only throughout Europe, but across the Atlantic and as far afield as Australia, Jehst’s reputation is set in stone. Still on the cutting edge in 2014, this cult-hero is building an empire, one brick at a time.
    Facebook

    STRANGE U
    Strange U’s enthusiasm for the off key and weird reigns supreme. Their stream of consciousness lyricism coupled with hefty left of centre soundscapes are the perfect antidote to today’s bland plastic corporate rap. Strange U is a collaborative project centered around two Hip Hop veterans – King Kashmere IV and producer Doctor Zygote.

    Live, Strange U seek to get away from the traditional Hip Hop set up of rapper rapping, DJ playing instrumentals. They both trigger sounds live on samplers and the sonics are bathed in a wash of Dub echoes and spring reverb. It makes for a truly psychedelic experience.

    Plus Special Guests

    Kalle Mattson
    Recorded throughout 2012 & 2013, Kalle Mattson’s newest full-length was produced by The Wooden Sky’s Gavin Gardiner and features appearances by Juno-nominated artists The Wooden Sky, Cuff The Duke & a song co-written by Kalle & renowned singer-songwriter Jeremy Fisher. Someday, The Moon Will Be Gold fully embraces the duality of hope and death, from the summery jangle of “Pick Me Up” to the opulent & euphoric “Eyes Speak”, this is a record that takes the young 22-year old songwriter to the next level both musically & lyrically.

    “I had written about my mom in the past but never as honest as I was on all of these new songs” says Mattson. “I wanted to fully put down my own story. In a lot of ways I felt like all I had left was this record and finishing it. What I had put off for five years all came back to me in that house and I dealt with it by writing.”

    With STMWBG Kalle Mattson follows up a string of two critically acclaimed full-lengths (2009s Whisper Bee & 2011s Anchors), an EP (2012s Lives In Between), and two viral music videos for “Water Falls” (over 250,000 views) & “Thick As Thieves” (over 1,000,000 views). Anchors was mixed by Howie Beck (Feist, Jason Collett, Hayden) and saw Kalle tour in support of the album with stops at CMW, NXNE, Pop Montreal, Ottawa Bluesfest, tours with Sunparlour Players, Cuff The Duke, Jeremy Fisher and opening slots with Jim Bryson, The Rural Alberta Advantage and Blue Rodeo. The album also received a pair of Northern Ontario Music Award wins for Album of the Year (Group) & SOCAN Songwriter of the Year.
