Coming exactly one year after their debut EP Close, Sarah is an exciting departure from the trio’s folk soaked vocal harmonies that defined their previous output, which is more than evident in the EP’s gorgeous title track, as well as singles Get This Feeling and Drifting. There are a host of sonic influences, ranging from Fleetwood Mac and Kate Bush to Bat For Lashes and First Aid Kit.
The EP is named after the trio’s mother, an incredibly strong and important person in their lives. Both the title track and the EP are an exploration of the inner strength and confidence needed to overcome certain situations, such as leaving a toxic relationship or dealing with newfound feelings that you didn’t expect to have for someone.

“Around early 2014, Matt and Tj decided to get together and record some music. While experimenting with different genres and sounds, they began to practice together on acoustic guitars. Around the middle of summer, Static Charmer became the main point of focus for both of the musicians, and they went in to record their song “Guess This Is Goodbye”, which blends all types of genres into one catchy song. In May 2015, they flew to California to record their debut, “Well, Clearly…” [bio]
It’s day 25 and i’m giving ya an update! Talk about politics too, but not sure why..
Here’s the recipie for the juice I talked about in the show:

Ah, the calm before the stormâ¦ I spent lunchtime working today in Princes Street Gardens before the craziness of the Edinburgh Festival starts tomorrow. Is it always this insane? I think it’s stepped up a notch this year, especially in terms of the corporate and advertising nonsense. There are advertising structures EVERYWHERE. And all for terrible looking shows. I hate those posters that are parodies of movie posters or something. Surely that suggests you lack imaginationâ¦ why would I want to go and see a show based on photoshop skills rather than talent?
That said, I’ll be doing a show on Edinburgh’s festival radio station Fresh Fringe again this year! Every Thursday at the earlier time of 6pm. 6pm until 8pm. Drive time. If an internet based radio station has a drive time.

Like Marylou is the first single from the Stockholm, Swedish band BEAT THE HEARTS third EP, ‘Waiting for a Sequel’. The new effort was recorded in a studio on a farm in the Swedish countryside and produced by Anders Rane.
Despite differing opinions, power outages and broken guitars, the band ended up with an EP that they are really proud of, a cinematic love story over four songs with the whole EP now up for streaming over on Soundcloud.Like Marylou HypeMachine
Their New Colours EP (Out Aug 7th) is available to stream in its entirety on SoundCloud.

Check out the full live sets and interviews from Discovery 2’s April showcase. This month’s gig night features some jaw dropping rock acts including Chase the Ace, The Manic Shine and The Undivided. You’ll also hear the effervescent Nakisha Esnard fusing reggae, opera and hip-hop, and singer-songwriter Samson.
Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom of the post and check out the photo gallery courtesy of Amanda Rose Photography.More about the artists Chase the Ace
Chase the Ace are sleaze drippin’ and hard rockin’ . Bringing you a slick modern twist on the guitar wailing, drum crushing bands of the 80’s, Chase the Ace’s approach of “running as fast as you can with your eyes closed” is proving itself. In their short time of existence, the four-piece Rock band released a well praised debut album named ‘Are You Ready’, absolved 5 European tours through UK, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Holland, played more than 50 headline shows as well as several festivals, and keep on conquering the rock charts around the world. Chase the Ace pride themselves with innovative and eccentric stage performances, captivating the audience, whereby their influences such as AC/DC, Van Halen, MötleyCrüe aspire but nevertheless are presented in an original and modern sound.
“Takes an AC/DC blast and sleazes it up. A simple formula but you’ll be singing it for days on end.” – Fireworks Magazine 2015
“These guys rock fairly good on a par with many established acts. The fun vibe is supported by well penned songs and strong instrumentation, all crowned by a first rate production for an indie. A really enjoyable collection of rockers from a new promising band. Keep an eye put on them.” – 0DayRockz
“Pure Rocknroll!” – Ultimate GuitarThe Manic Shine
Linking alt-rock and ambient sounds with towering riffs and pounding rhythms may sound tough for some but The Manic Shine take it all in their stride. Never a band to shy away from experimentation, 2014’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Let Go Or Be Dragged’ showcased a tour de force of rock musicianship and genre-bending, with songs lamenting the contradictions of modern life.
The last year has seen the band go from strength to strength, gaining support and spins on XFM’s The Rock Show to featuring in Kerrang! on Scuzz TV and many plays on BBC Introducing. The past 6 months have seen the band deep in writing and rehearsal for a new EP. Now with producer Lee Batiuk (Deaf Havana) on board and a new explosive offering planned for release in the fall and national tours to support, the London quartet are set for a busy and exciting 2015.
“Melting our ears…Alt Rock + Big Riffs = This lot. Absolutely Thumping!” – Kerrang!
The Manic Shine return with an album choked full of intelligent intricate riffs, relentless melodies and catchy hooks.”- Amazing Radio, Rock ShowThe Undivided
One of the most exciting anthemic rock acts to emerge from South Wales in decades . They’ve supported Kids In Glass Houses, The Dirty Youth, IDivide, Ask and Xerts. Festivals so far Merthyr Rock, Camden Rocks, Nightmare Fest. The Undivided secured a sync placement for the instrumental version of ‘Headlights’ from the previous album ‘This New Day’ on the opening and closing credits of BBC 4 Royal Institute Christmas lectures, screen on 29th, 30th and 31st December 2014.
The band are heading over to Canadian Music week and receiving US and Canadian College radio airplay which has already awarded them a CMJ radio distinction. They have recently written and produced their new music with Dan Weller (Sikth).
“ The Undivided have a knack for writing anthemic songs as big as the mountains that overshadow their hometown of Abergavenny” – Kerrang! Magazine
“Wingman guitarist Bray does a fine line in stadium trashing intros, and numbers like ‘Open Your Eyes’ and ‘Panic’ are immediately mesmerising. Singer Joe comes alive on these numbers too, as if he knows Bray’s scorching intros, a collision of U2, early Simple Minds, and SLF, are something to follow and indeed match.” – ArtRocker.tvNakisha Esnard
A soulful singer, multi instrumentalist and Poet from Bedfordshire who creates a mixed genre of music on her current instrument of choice, a ukelele. It gives a great island sound for her style of reggae and her soulful voice resonates well with her chosen chords. Nakisha is the Inventor of Opera Reggae! Her ability to freestyle and interact with her audiences are a big part of why Nakisha’s shows are unique. She has toured extensively in the Uk for the past 2 years and recently supported Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry
“The UK continues to be a hotbed for original, fresh, creative and innovative musical talent. Vocalist, composer, writer, pianist and ukulele player Nakisha Esnard definitely ticks all of the aforementioned boxes.” – UK Vibe MagazineSamson
A London born singer/songwriter, currently in the process of writing and recording his own original material. Having recently graduated from the university of Leeds, you will find Samson making his way around London’s gigging circuit, while performing a combination of covers and original songs.Photos from the event

Wanna see me show off my budding live DJ skills this weekend? I’m doing two one-hour sets this weekend as part of Tobacco Road Blues Exchange in Durham, North Carolina. The sets will be mostly downtempo and designed mostly for partner dancing, since that’s what the exchange itself is about, but I’ll have plenty of fun stuff people who just want to stop by and listen, too.
My sets will be at the Friday late night dance at 12:30 AM and the Saturday late night dance at 1:30 AM. Click on those links for details. My Saturday night set will feature several remixes I’ve done, including one that’s never been played before anywhere. (And not to brag or anything, but it turned out really good.)
If you’d like a taste of the sort of stuff I do when I DJ live, check out these sets from events I played last year:
And yes, I’m hoping to be back in Philadelphia in November to spin some tunes at the next DJX Weekend. Follow me on Twitter to find out when that’s happening.
The band plans on getting together to play the songs for the first time live in California in the fall of 2015. In the meantime, they’ve already begun the process of recording their second record, in the same manner as the first, with Bree recording melodies and demos on her phone in California, while Dylan, Marc, and Guy work on the lyrics and music back East. It might not be the simplest way to do things, but the music is magical, and it works for Cape Snow.
