The Roves released their third LP ‘Needle Factory’ last Christmas. 11 tracks which were recorded over lockdown in various UK studios such as Abbey Road and Konk in North London were mulled over and revised, making for their most ambitious effort yet. However the album barely went noticed at first, but since that day, it has garnered a small following and reached an American audience through consistent plays and coverage on College and indie radio stations across the states. In June of this year, the group made good on the album and toured it on the continent over 2 weeks, mainly in Germany. The ‘Needle Factory Tour’ managed to achieve some good press too. When the band pulled into Frankfurt, their show was reviewed by the Frankfurt Algemeine, a major national broadsheet, https://m.faz.net/aktuell/rhein-main/frankfurt/the-roves-im-dreikoenigskeller-18975843.amp.html . Now the band are back, and are in the process of recording yet another LP, the first sessions of which happened recently in Paris, straight off the back of this tour. Hot as knives. Now they are back home, the journey continues, and the Needle Factory Tour Part II starts in Norway & France this fall via a few hometown shows in London of course.
Espuma, which means the head of a beer in Spanish, is a three-piece psychedelic rock band with a strong cumbia influence based in London. The songs use a colourful blend of effects to create kaleidoscopic guitar tones embroidered with tropical Latin rhythms and lyrics about acid trips and heatwaves, while at times playing with a frenetic energy usually seen in punk. Written in English and Spanish, Espuma's songs grew from a fascination of Peruvian chicha - the Andean country’s 1960s mix of Colombian cumbia, indigenous huayno and Western surf and psychedelia.
“The Dead Freights have allowed us to stand by our credo, for we have not ‘lost our faith in Love and Music.” - The Libertines Rising indie-rock outfit Dead Freights are pleased to announce a brand new release with the arrival of 'How Much To Call Me Daddy', lifted from the upcoming debut album due in January 2024. Signed to Gary Powell's (The Libertines) 25 Hour Convenience Store Records, 'How Much To Call Me Daddy' delivers two minutes and eleven seconds of pure, unadulterated hi-octane rock and roll. It is an adrenaline fuelled rush to the cerebral cortex and the band's live shows are a testament to that, having toured the UK in 2022 with The Libertines, followed by a series of successive sold out London shows.
