    SIR WAS
    Probably the only artist who can make bagpipes and a recorder work for him, Swedish artist sir Was draws you in with his mellow electronica.

    He unveiled new track Falcon ahead of June’s Says Hi EP, somehow merging layered harmonies with gauzy James Blake-like organs and a classic hip hop beat. You’ll be in awe of how he pulls it off.

    Tipped by Clash and Stereogum to do massive things, grab a ticket and jam to his hazy sounds at Old Blue Last in June.

    THE RUMINATERS
    If the old adage “never take yourself too seriously” was a band, it would likely be The Ruminaters. Their easy-flowing psychedelic garage rock sound was born in Sydney, Australia, and on their new track they showcase a summer sing-along for when the living is easy; it’s the type of song you could envision learning the lyrics to by summer, purely to make the accompaniment of sitting outside with a cold one that much easier.

    Their newest single “Mr. Bubbles” is a delightfully poppy yet laid-back “wacky tale of a young gentleman who accidentally falls asleep underwater, only to find himself making friends with a whole town of crazy sea folk.” Rolling guitar riffs and a fluid bass line mix with a gentle drum beat to create a carefree atmosphere. The vocals fall somewhere between a country-folk drawl and pop revival. The track ends just as breezily as it begins, with a slow fade-out. This is a stellar piece of shimmering psych-pop that shines even during the cold winter months. – Obscure Sound

    HAWK
    “Post-rock indie with a celestial air” hitting up The Old Blue last for the London leg of their 2016 tour. The band have been dipping into a heavier sound this past year, balancing frustration with delicacy as they tackle subjects from human rights to insomnia.

    “HAWK combine post-punk and folk in a spine-tingling brew that’ll take potshots at your emotional wellbeing” (Line of Best Fit)

    “One of the strongest records we’ve played this year” (Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music)
    Soundcloud

    JENNIFER EVANS
    She’s supported Mica Levi, and is a big fan of both Björk and Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins. Preferring instinct and improvisation, the way Jennifer sings is often more primal-sounding than discernible.

    Originally from Washington D.C., Jennifer moved to Ireland at the age of two, and now lives in London. She releases her debut single Bakkos (co-produced by Micachu & The Shapes drummer Marc Pell) on May 6th. According to Jennifer, the track is about “self-judgment in an imaginary bacchanalian court” – check out the excellent video here:

    KEEP UP
    Keep Up are Fab Bell, Christian Daniels, Evan Jones and Rory Hill. Four young men in their early 20s, who began their journey in East-Anglia and now find themselves in London via the wreckage of previous bands, earning their stripes, honing their craft in indie-rock and post-punk groups.

    They are not just a product of their environment they are an expression of it, an attempt to turn it into something beautiful, something of meaning.

    The songs are proud, anthemic and assured. The War On Drugs toned sepia and inflected with the grace and subtlety of The Walkmen. The boys are intent on converting the negative, chaotic and disastrous into beauty and their journey is only just beginning.

    Founded in 2007 by singer Richard Carter and guitarist Andreas Yiasmoumi when their previous bands fell apart, Hertsfordshire, England’s Blackhole firmed up its lineup with the imminent arrival of second guitarist Nick Mitchell, drummer Alex Hunt, and bassist Max Hart. Fast-forward two years and one independently recorded four-track EP later, and the youthful quintet was busy recording their debut album, Dead Hearts, with name producer Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, etc.), building upon their hardcore roots with more commercial influences like alternative and indie rock. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

    GABRIEL BRUCE
    “Metal Soul” takes this bleakness and turns it into something else, something more grand. The gothic overtones of Love in Arms has given way to a more subtle loneliness, something deeply affecting and, as ever, disconcertingly easy to nod along to. That may well be Bruce’s greatest gift—layering pain upon pain while making his listener tap along through the discomfort.” – Noisey

    We welcome back the lovely ‘Long Teeth’ as main support for the night with new music to share with you all.
    ‘With sharp guitar snarls and a funky bass line, this band come across as obviously alternative but seeing them live they prove alternativeness is an understatement.
    Vocalist Sam Asbury is the perfect front man, performing theatrically with eccentric facial expressions and gestures. His range of tones describes the lyrics of each song seamlessly, adding character to not only their performances but the songs, making each entertaining to watch. Bassist and supporting vocals is Jade Ellins whose girl power set the stage on fire….literally.’ -from their single launch ‘Little Machine’

We will be previewing new material from a forthcoming record in a series of festivals and shows in North America and Europe in the coming months. We apologize to those who were adversely affected by our former band name. This was never anticipated nor our intent. We are artists and not politicians, we understand that the name reflected pain to some individuals and we are happy to change it and move on and focus on our music.

    A soloist, a sultry and striking songwriter creating atmospheric haunting blues.
    A band, a blues-grunge two-piece building heavy hooks and crashing beats.
    Heart breaker. Bone shakers.

    We are really psyched to have Swampmother play for us with a full band performance and with new material under their belt you are in for a treat.

    DIRTY WHITE FEVER

    COLDREDLIGHT
    “Dark and menacing noises ooze over Coldredlight’s debut track Little Scorpion, which lands somewhere in between Alice in Chains and Jeff Buckley in sound…these guys have fantastically intense, bluesy sound which builds beautifully from a solo guitar and voice into a grunge-infused rock out over the end of the song, singer Gaby-Elise’s voice changing from sultry to raw power” – Fortitude Magazine

    WILD THRONE
    Wild Throne is a band that has become accustomed to surprising people—both by accident and by design—simply by crafting music that is as hard to describe as it is exciting to listen to. They’ve managed to take the volume and brutality of heavy metal, compositional elements of prog rock, atypical time signatures of math rock, along with things not normally found in those genres such as strong melodies, a touch of psychedelia and some old-fashioned, straight-ahead rock ’n’ roll, along with impeccable musicianship and extraordinary vision, and meld them into a big, multi-layered, many-faceted sound that is completely their own.

    TAIL FEATHER
    “Tail Feather take things into altogether more sultry territory, with their bourbonsoaked blues rock bringing to mind the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Lynyrd Skynyrd. As the long-haired lotharios’ stunning five-way harmonies and lackadaisical grooves pulse and smoulder into the Purple Turtle’s very brickwork, it’s clear that we’re watching a band blessed with a total mastery of their craft. A real treat” – Kerrang

    “Take the Allman Brothers, put Ray Manzarek on keyboards and layer the whole gumbo with CSN&Y style vocals; then play psychedelic tinged West Coast Rock” – 247

    “The screeching guitars and rolling melody smell of leather, sheep skin, beards and matured bourbon – a fine concoction and one you should try.” – Art Rocker
