Live

Slow Club

www.slowclubband.com

With their swooning but raucous take on doo-wop and frazzled, fragile representation of soul inspired rock, Slow Club are typical of a band whose members divide their obsessions between Destiny's Child and Noise-pop. Slow Club's currency is songwriting which sees romance in the unlikeliest of corners, and applies a lighter, more honed lyrical touch to telling their story. More than anything, Slow Club are mordant Englishness at its best, displaying a restraint and self-deprecating wit even in the darkest of sentiments.

Spaceships are Cool

www.spaceshipsarecool.com

Spaceships are Cool are sci-fi science pop using theremins, stylophones, casio synths and glockenspiels to make music that sounds like your super nintendo made an LP! Highly recommended for fans of The Beta Band & The Flaming Lips.

Wildeflower

www.wildeflower.co.uk

Wildeflower are a long haired psych-folk group marrying influences from traditional folk artists Nick Drake, Bert Jansch and Fleet Foxes with the more modern, swirling psychedelia of Caribou and Four Tet. Expect 3-part male harmonies, vintage synthesiser exploration and a folk-rock pop sentiment.

DJ Sets

Ghostpoet

www.ghostpoet.co.uk

Ghostpoet made his mark on 2011 with the excellent debut LP "Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam" on Brownswood records. With his series of off-kilter, loopy electronic ditties blessed with his delightfully rambling musings on modern life, the softly-spoken Obaro Emijiwe has received an impressive slew of accolades culminating with his appearance on 'Later... with Jools Holland' and nomination for the Mercury Music Prize.

PigPen
