CANTALOUPE
Lovely, well-orchestrated electro-pop from Nottingham. With a new record out on Hello Thor Records, the newly-expanded four-piece are gathering all sorts of kudos from the likes of radio-dandies such as Steve Lamaq and Gideon Coe. I personally think they sound like the music that would be played on the direct underwater train that runs from the North of England to Japan – if that train existed.

Listen to their new single here:

ELK
Returning home after a great show at Christmas, we three Grimsby-born math-minded, underground-pop blokes are back again to present our brand new record, Herd Songs, in person. All singing, big-riffing and infinitely-drumming, we’ll be playing all the hits, so get your dancing shoes on and get set to make some shapes. Fans of Faraquet, Mogwai and Talking Heads are in for a treat.

EAST ON MAIN
Grimsby lads who play solid, no-nonsense punk rock as it bloody well should be played. Driving and aggressive but with plenty of melody kicking it’s way through, it’s the kind of music from that scene in the film when all the boys are getting ready to hit the town and have a good time and you just know Johnny’s gonna get a chance with Stephanie tonight. Interestingly, they also feature a future world darts champion on drums.

THE SKIPPING FORECAST
Once upon a time, Luke took me to see a girl called Sophia singing in a little pub in Sheffield. She’s bloody good, I said. I know, said Luke. Years later, Luke and Sophia are now performing together as The Skipping Forecast. A mash-up of looped-beats, electronic vibes and ambient guitar all support the lovely voice of Sophia and Luke's bass-vocal-backing. It all works rather splendidly and sounds a bit like Johnny Cash and June Carter covering Portishead. You’ll enjoy.

They've just released a new song, but I really like this one:
