As the nights draw in and leaves fall from the trees, thoughts turn to that time of year when the veil between life and death is at its thinnest… Rivertairs are hoping that this first bite of Autumn gloom will provide the perfect backdrop for their new single, an unexpectedly upbeat blend of rock n roll and pyschedelia focused on the elusive Victorian serial killer Jack The Ripper.

Halloween is here, so that means processed cakes are now available only in orange – such as this mildly disgusting “fiendish fancy”. Luckily some vanilla rooibos tea with almond milk will wash the taste away… is there anything more middle class than that?
Anyway, in celebration of halloween the show starts with “Swamp Thing” by Schwervon! from their brilliant 2003 album Poseur. They played a great gig on Monday night at the Wee Red Bar along with the Wave Pictures. Also featured is a track from the new album by The Son(s) which is out this week on vinyl on Olive Grove Records. Lots more, plus rambling chat and vibrating phones.

This month’s Discovery 2 has moved to a new venue, the 02 Academy Islington, so make sure you’re not heading to west London for this one! This month features Midlands, punk, pop reggae scoundrels Alex Blood & The Diggers, upcoming Scandanavian electropop artist DIA, quirky and hauntingly beautiful vocals from Kiwi and singer songwriter Tom Jarvis. Hear us chat with promoters Alex KW and Umong Shah, a track from each band and even a few extra songs from some Discovery Alumni.More about the artists ALEX BLOOD & THE DIGGERS
Midlands punk pop reggae scoundrels Alex Blood & The Diggers back on the road with a cheeky little set of dates in their strongholds. It coincides with the release of their latest collection of material “Combat Flat Cap”
Alex Blood & the Diggers have being steadily building their movement across the UK for last couple of years. Their unique blend of punk, rock, rap and reggae, has forged a sound described as “impossible to pigeonhole”
Lyrical wit reminiscent of the classic punk poets comes mixed with an edge and urgency in the music that commands attention.
They’ve supported Labrinth, Chase & Status, Devlin, Asian Dub Foundation, 2tone legends The Beat, Dreadzone, Jerry Dammers of The Specials, headlining Night & Day in Manchester and The Jam Cafe in Nottingham and receiving rave reviews for their energetic and dance floor filling live and acoustic sets.
Formed by lyricist Alex Blood (whose solo career includes collaborations with international artists Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse, as well as touring the UK with Jay-Z).
“This isn’t empty lifestyle prattle; Alex Blood is a masterful lyricist with a political edge and a story worth listening to.” – Whats The Ruckus
“The energy as well is crazy, but it’s mesmerising. I missed him going onto the stage and as I made my way up from the green room, you walk past the side of the stage… well I just stood there in complete awe” – Alternative Student Guide MCRDIA
Dia is an upcoming powerful electro-pop-artist. Her music is an upbeat mix of electro-edge-pop with a Scandinavian coolness and Japanese quirkiness to it. All music is written, produced and performed by the artist herself. DIA is inspired by artists such as MIA, Outkast, Dizzee Rascal, the Knife and Grimes. Her live performance is strong, vigurous and unique.
“It’s great – modern, cool, catchy and original”
– David Balfe; founder of Food record label, former general manager at Sony Music
“It’s inventive, has personality, the song is intriguing and pushes the edges a bit”
– Allen Jacobs; former music publisher at EMI, Peer, Sony/ATV, Stage Three and Fairwood MusicTOM JARVIS

Having already performed at Shepherds Bush Empire and Bush Hall, the State of Alert EP is Kiwi’s first journey into recorded music.
“Dramatic and emotive.”
– Listen With Monger
“A unique artist where genres meet and are distilled into something new.”
– Steve Cole, Expansion Records

Cowboy Cantor, a excelência da música independente.
His third EP (our of 4) ‘Looks Kinda Lunar’ was released in January 2014 with another shift in style and change of house from previous offerings. Gudjohr interestingly moved toward an electronic sound with his usual guitars and bass backbone replaced by synths, xylophones and effected samples.
