Northern three piece are building up to the release of their forthcoming album, 'Hope Is Just A State Of Mind', as well as their forthcoming UK tour by dripfeeding some tracks from a new pre-album EP. We're particularly enjoying the off-kilter nature of 'Creeping Up Appearances' from 'The Sanguine' EP, but you can also listen to lead track 'Ex-Cathedra' below.

A few weeks ago, I went to the most boutique of boutique festivals at a secret location in the woods. In fact it was not far from the secret location where I live. At first glance the In The Woods line-up didn’t look to be exactly my kind of thing but the weekend turned into a very rewarding voyage of discovery. It really is in the woods and the laid-back vibe and smallish, friendly crowd make this a festival I can highly recommend.

Now she's finally back with the synth-heavy 'One' - a debut single worth waiting for.

When Dems first burst onto whichever scene they initially inhabited back in 2010, it was Dan Moss' 'Lioness' that utterly captivated their early adopters. A few years on, they've swelled threefold to a trio and are finally releasing their debut album in October, which includes a reworked version of 'Lioness'.

The Mercury Music Prize nominations were announced yesterday, and on a slight tangent, we now present an act co-headed by Guy Sigsworth - the renowned producer, who also happened to perform on Talvin Singh's Mercury winning album, 'OK', back in the late 90s. Sigsworth has teamed up with another collaborator, Richard Walters, to create a quietly beautiful set of tracks.
