Formed in November 2011 after moving down from Peterborough, this Brighton based Surf/Doom three piece comprise of guitar / organ / lead vocalist Kristian; semi-professional poker playing drummer Gianni, and fiercely eloquent bassist Dan, who is currently writing a science fiction novel by the name of The Curious Adventures of Charlie Revel; and mysterious second guitarist Mark, who's commitments at home and slight agoraphobic behavior means that he will not leave Peterborough, and only expands the group to a quartet at home town shows.
2013 has seen The Wytches supporting a rich variety of acts including Death Grips, The Black Angels, Chelsea Wolfe, Bosnian Rainbows, Japandroids, Temples, Metz, Superfood, Future Of The Left, The Cribs and Drenge. They released their second single, the AA-side Beehive Queen/Crying Clown, via HateHateHate Records on June 3rd. Following the success of Beehive Queen, the band re-released Digsaw as a limited white label 7”. In November, the band released a second AA side single, ‘Robe For Juda / Wide At Midnight’ via HateHateHate records. This has gained them more radio play from the likes of Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens (for which the band recorded a live session at Maida Vale) at BBC Radio 1, and Marc Riley on BBC 6 Music who has had them in for live sessions twice this year.

"A night-vision camera captures life in a dark park. Among the hidden corners and leaf-covered hideaways, people purge and absolve their sins through sexual liberation. We highlight a romance between a man and a woman who seek forgiveness from each-other: the only forgiveness that is of any importance. "
Forgive Me will be available as a three track digital bundle alongside two new tracks: Hopeless Place and Holy Place.
'Time Will Tell' is the closing track from the album CUPID DELUXE. The song itself was recorded live in a one take that lasted about 15 minutes I ad-libbed the vocals recalling lyrics from songs of mine and a song by Adam Bainbridge (which he was unaware i was going to do). Adam was on the drum machine, Blue May on guitar, Sam Beste on piano, & Tawiah on backing vocals. I then took some of my vocals from towards the end and overlaid it as a backing vocal."

Alabama-born Katie Crutchfield is a natural at writing confessional pop songs. Since picking up the guitar as a teenager she has spent the better part of her young adult life travelling to play basement shows for feminist punks with bands like P.S. Eliot, Bad Banana and The Ackleys, all of which she sang for. Crutchfield and her twin sister Allison (Swearin') started these bands in high school, inspired by touring bands that would pass through Alabama, as well as a local community-run show space called Cave 9 where they both volunteered. The sisters were best known as P.S. Eliot, a band that developed a cultish underground following until disbanding in 2011. Deciding to go it alone, Crutchfield became Waxahatchee and released her debut album 'American Weekend' in 2012 - lo-fi acoustic guitar-pop songs.
'Cerulean Salt' was recorded with assistance from Crutchfield’s roommates: her drummer Keith Spencer and bassist Sam Cook-Parrot, as well as her sister Allison Crutchfield (Swearin’) and Kyle Gilbride (Swearin’, Big Soda).
It is made of 13 songs recorded last winter at Rockfield Studio in Monmouth, Wales and it will be released into the world on 27th January 2014 through Wichita Recordings in the UK and on January 28th through Yep Roc in North America. Peggy Sue have an extensive tour scheduled for 2014 kicking off at the wonderful St Pancras Old Church in London on release day (27th January 2014 ) [PLAY]

Portland's ultimate hard-rockin' party bringers emerge from two years of constant touring with their new full length album 'Whales And Leeches'. With the help of guests Mike Scheidt (Yob) and Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession), 'Whales And Leeches' further propels Red Fang into the upper stratosphere of hard rock and metal elite.
It is two pronged - firey guitar driven metal ('This Animal') and melodic rock anthem. 'DOEN' spiraling guitar introduction is cut by high pace drum à la Baroness and from 1 minute 57 guitar and drums take on over 1 minute of considered 'We're not Worthy' QOTSA style genius. 'Behind the Light' and 'Dawn Rising' is similar to a James Hetfield / Chris Cornell / Zeppelin call to action. 'Every Little Twist' has Sabbath style decipherable lyric 'trying to see what cannot be seen'.

'Same Cloth or Not' is Lisa O’Neill’s second album, following the embryonic ice-breaker of witty-ditties that was 2009’s 'Has an Album'.
The album was recorded in a beautiful rented cottage in Wicklow in the winter months with David Kitt producing and Karl Oldum engineering and includes her band Stina Sandstrom (vocals) and Mossy Nolan (bouzouki) and some wonderful interventions from London-based string duo Geese (Emma Smith & Vincent Sipprell).
This new record captures Lisa as an assured songwriter, as comfortable with lyrical pathos as she is comic turn of phrase. At times she is downright poetic, switching mood from forlorn love songs to shady tales of wheelbarrow smuggling. Her voice is a unique instrument in itself, subtle enough to execute the tender reminiscence of a song like Speed Boat but powerful enough to bring the house down on the rousing call-to-arms chorus on Come Sit Sing.
