The Moonlandingz will release debut album 'Interplanetary Class Classics' via Transgressive. The loose-knit London collective have gradually evolved into one of the most mind-expanding live experiences around, a thrilling fusion of power drill punk and brown acid psych.
Sean Lennon was recruited to shape their debut album, with The Moonlandingz decamping to New York state to lay down some feral psych-out grooves. Guests include Randy Jones the Cowboy from The Village People, Rebecca Taylor from Slow Club, drummer Ross Orton, bassist Mairead O’Connor, The Human League's Phil Oakey, and Yoko Ono who contributes to no-holds-barred finale 'This Cities Undone'.
In order to raise awareness of Alzheimers Research UK, 'Santa Forgot' has been created by Aardman Animations with music from Hannah Peel and narration by Stephen Fry.
Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) has launched a new campaign set to pull at the nation’s heart strings this Christmas. The Santa Forgot campaign explores the idea of Santa having dementia through a bold animation that imagines Christmas without him.
Santa Forgot’s central character is a young girl called Freya, who has grown-up in a world where Santa has stopped visiting on Christmas Eve. On learning about Santa’s condition, Freya travels to the North Pole. She offers her own support and re-mobilises the redundant elves as researchers, explaining her belief that ‘if Santa has a disease, research can find a way to fix it’.
Through the depiction of Freya and Santa’s elves, ARUK showcases that only with world leading research, new approaches and innovative thinking can the diseases which cause dementia be defeated.
Dementia is the world’s greatest medical challenge, not only for the individuals affected and their families, but also for society as a whole. Over 850,000 people in the UK have dementia, and the condition has an economic impact in the UK of over £24bn a year, more than cancer and heart disease combined. It is also the leading cause of death amongst women in the UK.
Hannah will be performing at Shoreditch Church, London on 24th November 2016.

TRAAMS have been surging towards something great for some time. Last year’s ‘Modern Dancing’ full-length was a step up, taking the energy of that debut and tying it down with that knot-tight rhythm section. ‘Slipping’ and ‘Penguin’, those two newbies unleashed earlier this month, proved they had the chops to take things further still. ‘A House On Fire’, though, is the most captivating and crazed the Chichester trio have ever sounded.
The new Nimmo single 'Dancing Makes Us Brave' debuted as BBC Radio 1s Annie Mac's Hottest Record, and follows Nimmo's Room 5 Sessions series.
It's a big, bold piece of forward-thinking pop that centres on making you throw of the shackles of the daily grind. Escape your 9-to-5 shell and let the beats take control. The track was co-written with Oli Bayston.
Allison Crutchfield (P.S. Eliot, Swearin’) has announced her debut solo album. It’s called Tourist in This Town, and it’s out via Merge Records. She has also shared a music video for the album’s first offering, “Dean’s Room.” Directed by Lara Jean Gallagher, the video (watch below) shows scenes of Crutchfield dancing around a home alongside the dancer Marlee Grace. In the video Gallagher “wanted to counter the upbeat tempo of the song with moments that felt like taffy,” she said in a statement.
Crutchfield’s last album with Swearin’ was 2013’s Surfing Strange. In 2014, she self-released the Lean in to It EP. Earlier this year, P.S. Eliot got back together for a reunion tour in support of an excellent compilation of their complete recorded works, 2007-2011.
