Further Information

Cornshed Sisters - Honey & Tar
Cornshed Sisters’ second album was recorded and produced by Peter Brewis at Field Music’s Studio on the banks of the river Wear. The Cornshed Sisters are Jennie Brewis, Cath Stephens, Liz Corney (moonlighting from the Field Music band) and Marie Nixon (erstwhile of 90s upstarts Kenickie); four singer-songwriters based in Tyne and Wear, who weave together pop, folk, ballad and protest music into a unique and distinctive style. Drawing on a palette of solo and harmony vocals and a blend of acoustic and electronic instruments, they convey their stories with sensitivity and humour. Their subject matter is love, motherhood, fake happiness, friendship, family, feminism and the increasing complexities of life as you get older but no wiser. The band are proud to write about their experiences as women and their song writing always has a stark realism to it - as Marie puts it when discussing the track We Have Said This Is Impossible: “True love is buggering off together in a Ford Focus”.

Polica - United Crushers
‘United Crushers’ is Poliça’s third full length release and their most remarkable yet, named after a graffiti tag seen throughout the band’s hometown of Minneapolis. Channy Leaneagh sings of a post-industrial urban landscape littered with broken promises, a land that’s been rigged against us from the start. Despite all that there’s an element of defiance, a refusal to surrender in her delivery of the lyrics. Standout tracks include ‘Wedding’, written in reaction to the intertwined epidemics of police brutality and institutional racism, ‘Lime Habit’s dustbowl electronic soul and ‘Melting Block’s tightly wound funk There is a darkness to ‘United Crushers’ but it doesn’t win. Dreams may be dashed and promises may be broken, the world may be full of disappointment and pain and violence but if you’re in the midst of it all feeling lost and hopeless on the streets of Minneapolis there’s a United Crushers tag that knows how you feel.

Frankie Rose - Interstellar
Frankie Rose (Vivian Girls / Crystal Stilts / Dum Dum Girls) returns... 'Interstellar' is built from layered vocals, synths and guitars that echo pop of the '60s and the '80s, but here refitted into fresh new shapes. Streamlined dreampop with a melodic assurance that establishes a real compelling case for the Frankie Rose pop vision...

Pipettes - We Are The Pipettes

Field Music - Tones Of Town
Phwor...What an album, it sneaks up on you and makes you realise why you love music so much, a real interesting slab of influences that make alot of sense when put together like this. It's pop music at it's very best, beautiful harmonies crafted well enough to send a smile and a shudder to the pessimistic amongst us. We really like this.

Pure Bathing Culture - Pray for Rain
When it came time to write and record the follow-up to last year’s ‘Moon Tides’, the duo knew what they didn’t want. “We didn’t gravitate towards someone making indie dream-pop records,” Dan said. That was when producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Swans, Angel Olsen, The Walkmen) reached out to the band and invited them to come record with him in his Dallas, TX studio. ‘Pray For Rain’ is the sound of Pure Bathing Culture transforming from who they were to who they will be, of finding their way, ready to take steps both small and momentous on their musical path...

Slug - Ripe
Slug is the brand new musical venture from the mind of Ian Black, a merrily disruptive influence on the North East music for more than a decade. Taking inspiration from film soundtracks (‘Enter The Dragon’, ‘Suspiria’), 20th century abstract and minimalist music and also the rock and funk chops of Led Zeppelin, Prince and Funkadelic, the resulting album is concise, unselfconscious, idiosyncratic and exquisitely executed. Animators the Brothers Quay, Phil Mulloy and Jan Svankmajer’s oblique approaches to subject matter also rubbed off on Black, lending the Slug album an air of the hypnagogic.

Field Music - Commontime

Outfit - Slowness
‘Slowness’, the band’s second album due on new label home Memphis Industries, is the sound of their five members snatching intensive weeks to plant themselves in one place, with the tensions of touring, moving and transatlantic relationships still weighing heavy in mind, to create an album with bold presence. ‘Slowness’ paints a portrait of distance using haunting piano, piercing synthesizers and guitars, all underpinned by Outfit’s trademark rhythm section.

Haley Bonar - Impossible Dream
‘Impossible Dream’ is Bonar’s most ambitious record to date. Her songs blend scuzzy 1980s indie, new wave angularity and Spector- ish reverb. Hypnotic opener ‘Hometown’ shimmers like a Twin Peaks outtake, the shuddering, swirling ‘Kismet Kill’ recalls Mazzy Star, while the soaring synth and pounding drums of ‘Stupid Face’ summons the spirit and melody of ‘Porcupine’ era Echo And The Bunnymen. Intrepid and diverse, ‘Impossible Dream’ is consistently bold, infectious and inventive.

Go! Team - Semicircle - pink vinyl
The brainchild of Ian Brighton-based melody obsessive Ian Parton, The Go! Team’s fifth album ‘Semicircle’ began with an idea; in his head was the image of a school marching band gone rogue, chucking away their sheet music to blast out Northern soul stompers or Japanese indie-pop swooners or old school hip hop jams. “I like the swing and the toughness of marching bands, the physicality of feeling a beater walloping a bass drum,” explains Ian, “but I wanted to reclaim them from patriotic or sporty associations. That was the kick-off for this record.”

Barbarossa - Lier
‘Lier’, Barbarossa aka James Mathé’s brand new album, is the perfect sonic story to accompany these big life changes and as a result, his most personal record to date. Across the 10 tracks, ‘Lier’ is a hugely uplifting and cathartic record that takes you from the depths of his intricate and wonderful creative mind to the wider wonderful emotions that come with becoming a father. What unites the songs on ‘Lier’ are central themes of loss, love and confronting who you are as time moves on and things change within and out of your control. By the end of the record you are left with the feeling that when things are simplified, they are at their most beautiful.

SLUG - Higgledy Piggldey
Slug is the nom de plume of North East native Ian Black and, whereas acclaimed debut album ‘Ripe’ was made in collaboration with Peter Brewis and David Brewis of Field Music, ‘HiggledyPiggledy’ was composed, produced and played entirely by Black, enabling him to give free reign to his beguiling brand of Dada-rock.Thematically the record was written against the backdrop of political turmoil but really it’s about the strange life Black leads in his native Sunderland, an autodidact outsider living his life in Wetherspoons arguing with some of the questionable attitudes of locals. Blacks stated aim to “have fun writing truly horrible lyrics,” playing characters “venting in pubs, writing in the character of how some people think and behave.”
