One third of Test Icicles, Sam Mehran, releases a collection of works. Whilst his former band mates (Rory Atwell andDev Hynes) have been producing and working on counteless high-profile side projects, we've been privately enjoying Sam Mehran's intrepid foray into his alter ego Outer Limitz notably with the song I Kontakt. Now dropping the Z in favour of an S, Sam launches a full public assault by consolidating his Singles, Demos & Rarities into one edition for you all to enjoy as well.
'I feel like I have many stories ahead of me. Over the past few years I've learnt that people are people and music is music and I can't really judge or say I believe deep down that one this is genuinely better than another, Life is just so crazy. I used to think I was an alien, but Earth has been such an epic experience that I'm now glad to call it home. But who knows, maybe one day I'll leave and realize that home was some place else.'Sam Mehran
This compilation represents the perfect portal into a special artistic imagination, a thrilling outsider-art artefact and even more reason for excitement regarding whatever Mehran dreams up next.

“Jon's music has a transportive quality, which can be blissful and expansive, but can also be internal, and more aggressive, and Collider is at this end of the spectrum. We wanted to create an internal journey, which was unflinching, singular and claustrophobic and at the same time liberating. The video is like a voodoo ceremony, where the lead character dances herself into frenzy, and through the dance gains access to a parallel dimension; it's her unfurling thoughts, her dislocated mind, and hints at something more apocalyptic - an end game for her and us.” Tom Haines
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.
