Led by Rob Smoughton (Hot Chip/ Scritti Politti), Black Peaches are a midway point between the swamp and the tropics. Their music is gloriously loose-limbed and strung-out: a psychotropic stew of country boogie, spiritual jazz and funk.
The Travelling Band
Focused around the songwriting talents and production skills of Jo Dudderidge and Adam Gorman and the rhythmic driving force of enigmatic drummer Nick Vaal, The Travelling Band have been quietly honing what Marc Riley described as “Mancunian Americana”. The resulting album mines a rich seam of influences, highlighting the band’s love of American indie rock, but still with that Mancunian twist.
The Payroll Union
Americana/Post Rock for fans of Nick Cave/Tom Waits/The Band.
Glorious jangling C86 indie pop featuring members Best Friends. The Hipshakes and L’amour Des Reves.
Mancunian Surf Pop for sleepovers.

All We Are
Since releasing their Dan Carey produced (Kate Tempest, MIA, Hot Chip) debut album on Domino/Double Six in February 2015, All We Are have been lighting up festivals all over the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe with their psych driven atmospheric shows and groove based anthems.
As their debut proved, the Liverpool 3 piece – Richard O’Flynn (drums), Guro Gikling (Bass) and Luis Santos (Guitar) – embraced everything groove based and psychedelic about music, from soul, hip hop to pop music crafting an intoxicating album full of warmth, emotionally astute lyrics and irresistible rhythms.
With their second album in the making and drawing influences from post-punk, early 80s/90s electronic music and more, including recent personal observations and experiences, expect a darker, yet brighter, punchier and evermore urgent All We Are filling the void.
“We wanted to make music that reflected the changes that were happening around us”, says Richard. “These are hard times for everyone, Liverpool is no stranger to that,” says Guro. “…and musicians are a reflection of the places they draw their influences from,” says Luis.
The atmosphere remains, the energy and life that All We Are bring to the stage will forever be at the forefront of what they do, but the world is now a different place. Paranoia isolates and harder times create harsher climes. Darkness forces melancholy and only drive cuts through the noise. As Ian Curtis said “I exist on the best terms I can. The past is now part of my future. The present is well out of hand.”
Cian Nugent is a guitar player and composer from Dublin, Ireland who combines personal passions, such as suburban/coastal blues, traditional musics, late 1960s & ’70s singer-songwriters, jazz ambitions, 20th century composition and the Takoma school into a deeply personal style. His music boasts an orchestrated and fully instrumented sound that is playful and eerie at the same time.
The Big Eyes Family Players
Sheffield psych folk/synth/art rock collective led by James Greens. Previous collaborations have included James Yorkston, Alasdair Roberts etc.
Cobalt Chapel formed in 2014; the psych-folk pairing of London singer and actress Cecilia Fage (Matt Berry & The Maypoles) and Sheffield musician Jarrod Gosling (I Monster, Regal Worm). They made their dynamic live debut at Festival No. 6 last year (“delicate filigree… juxtaposed with propulsive and hypnotic rhythms, old school psych freak-outs” – Shindig), releasing their first album in February: “This rich offering stakes an early claim for album of the year.” – Shindig *****
“An eerie piece of Brit-folk” – The Times
“Wonderful and Atmospheric” 8/10 – Uncut
“Blueprint Blue are part of the DIY eco-system that floods underneath East London, a sub-acqeuous network of musicians, vagabonds, charlatans, and dreamers. The slow, chugging tempo of “Good Dreams” nods towards Americana, yet this is a low-rent, 21st century version.” Clash Magazine.

a post-punk pop party pack from leeds/york.
Founded in Sheffield 2013, Mysteron have taken many forms from the creation of 60s inspired caped lunatic Jack Clayton and Jon Willmer. The sound of Mysteron has elements of Garage Rock, Psychedelia, electronic pop music and Post Punk, the group have cited influences such as Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Electric Prunes, Scott Walker, Broadcast, film and television soundtracks.
Sometimes poetic, often beautiful and always honest. Before Breakfast weave strong melodies and ethereal cello with sweet harmonies in songs that rise up from the insecure depths of womanhood.
