Wild Beasts // Pitchfork Fest 2014

I can admit that about 90% of my initial excitement over Pitchfork this year was that Wild Beasts would be there. Up that to 110% when they added their Friday night after show at Lincoln Hall. I was a bit snap-happy and took a tonne of photos of these musical geniuses to share.

Sadly, the Canon camera we were using decided that today, of all days, it would have a strange pixelated line through the photos. Our apologies, I'm certain we're more annoyed with it than we should be. x

BRAQUE // What You Should Be Listening To

What You Should Be Listening To...

BRAQUE is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and all around talent that you might want to start taking note of. Taken from the V1CES EP, the first in a trilogy, the video for his take on "Miss The Rain" (Everything But The Girl) is below, and our personal favourite, "Secrets," also a single from the EP. You can find BRAQUE on Twitter, Facebook, and Soundcloud.



The Dead Strange // 'The Gift of Life'

A few months back, my attention was drawn to London band, The Dead Strange.

An eerie, dark, and talented duo, their first EP was released in March, and with July comin, their 'The Gift Of Life' EP will be available as a free download on their site.

The first single from this upcoming EP, the title track keeps with the tempo and feel of the previous EP, and shows their strengths and growths as a band. 

Looking forward to hearing more, and seeing them on the road, in the near future.

You can check out The Dead Strange on their site: http://www.thedeadstrange.co.uk/
and stream "The Gift Of Life" below.
