NoPop is a nowave, pop act out of Brooklyn heavily influenced by such groups as the Pixies, DNA, Minutemen, and David Bowie. In April we saw the first single O, TV from their new effort, an excellent song that drives home, hitting the raw pulse and energy behind some of the peak years of those they are influenced by, albeit containing the band’s own unique pink-punk touch.
NoPop’s first EP “See Pretty” was officially released in May of 2014 and can be found at the Bandcamp link below for immediate purchase. In addition, you can also check out more from the band and a slew of other great artists on Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen Compilation: Section 5 at the link below.

Fragile Souls make their debut at Discovery bringing their mesmerizing blues rock. They are about to release a new single called “Devil Sun” and you’ll hear it live at Discovery first! Jordan Allen , another first timer at Discovery, has been described as, “Manchester’s answer to Jake Bug”. Opening the show is the fabulously entertaining American multi-instrumentalist Rachael Sage . And as usual, you can expect our resident DJ Delphi will be spinning some epic tunes throughout the night.

Elle Exxe (pronounced L.X.) describes herself as an explosion. After amassing well over 1mil YouTube hits, regular shout outs on one of the worlds biggest blogs PerezHilton.com and reaching the coveted top spots on the Hype Machine charts with her last single “Dirty Beat (Kat Krazy Remix)”, the artist formerly known as Harrison made the shock decision to set the counters back to zero and refresh as Elle Exxe. Starting from scratch may sound hard for some, but within a month of launching as Elle Exxe, she had shared a stage with acts like Professor Green, Jess Glynn and MNEK at Westfield London’s Music Cube (sponsored by Kiss FM & Sennheiser). She has new music ready for release in 2015 both self-produced and cowritten with the likes of Kevin Hastings (Rihanna, Lady GaGa), Jon Castelli(Jason Derulo, Gotye). Her style takes the best from hip-hop to rock but lands firm in the dirty pop arena.
“WHAT a voice!” – Ally McCrae (BBC R1)
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Linda Harrison – Alex Baker (Kerrang! radio)
“The most talented lady I have ever met…This is what I have been waiting for!” – Frankmusik (UK producer/artist)
“Fiona Apple meets Kate Bush….Gonna be a smash!” – Perez HiltonFjokra
Fjokra and his eponymous band have gained a reputation for exhibiting a uniquely bizarre and energetic live show that ‘combines near-minimalistic, lo-fi electro-pop with retro swing, metal and occasional epic Muse-like explosions’ (Time Out). Gracing the stages at Isle Of Wight Festival, Beach Break Festival, Shambala, Boomtown and Liverpool Sound City, Fjokra was also hand picked by Adam Ant as support for his London show in November 2014.
During the summer of 2014 Fjokra worked with director Catherine Hardwicke on her latest film Miss You Already starring Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette, Dominic Cooper and Paddy Considine. Fjokra and his band feature in a concert scene performing one of his own compositions and also plays the part of Dominic Cooper’s best friend throughout the film. Miss You Already is scheduled for international release in 2015.
“I want to recommend something new to iTunes this week, a very exciting new band.. Fjokra” – John Taylor, Duran Duran.
“Im going to have to go and lie down in a darkened room after playing that”. – Gary Crowley, BBC Radio London on playing Infinite Loops
“Sex music for metallers” – Peanut Baines, Kaiser Chiefs
“The ever impossible to pigeon-hole Fjokra with the musical masterpiece that is Slyrex.” – Peter Donaldson, Absolute Radio
Fragile Souls are ready to bring 21st century porch blues to a time where music is lacking something fresh, with one foot firmly planted in electronica and the other foot in chain gang blues an integral sound that has brought the two hues together as one genre. The Fragile Souls take pride in giving the listener a visual experience; their tracks evoke the primal gift of dance and the deep dream like trance of a movie soundtrack “Devil Sun” Fragile Souls’s next single launches on 3rd March . Alongside the releases will be be two alternative mixes thanks to their friends at Quote Records. This showcase is being used to platform the release.
“ unique with its unusual combination of components (which), through the beauty of music they produce a canny beat and work perfectly together.” Gigslutz review.
“Music when it hits you, it hits you hard – here is Fragile Souls Devils Sun” – Huey Lewis – BBC Radio 2
“Bolton songwriter Jordan Allen has been simultaneously blessed and cursed by the label “Manchester’s Answer to Jake Bugg” – but he’s so much better than that. This fierce, feisty debut single has a tough energy that owes far more to The Hives or Arctic Monkeys – and carries off the kind of swagger and attitude that young Jake can only dream of. Sharp lyrics, great attitude and a seemingly unstoppable momentum behind him – what’s not to like?” Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music Introducing.
“It would be easy, but lazy, to describe Jordan Allen as the half-way point between Alex Turner and Jake Bugg. That said, fans of Arctic Monkeys and Bugg will most likely find something in Allen’s songs of Northern accented dark nights and sharp lyrics that they approve of. Unsigned – but probably not for long!” – Fred Perry Subculture
“Intelligent, articulate lyrics laced with an ascerbic wit observing people and situations around them married to robust tunes that already show a rich diversity of sound.” – Even The StarsRachael Sage
A soulful vocalist, innovative multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer. Rachael Sage has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia.
Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, A Great Big World, Judy Collins, Colin Hay, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, The Animals and Ani DiFranco. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, the “Fame” soundtrack, and in the current season of Lifetime’s #1 reality series, “Dance Moms”
“One part Elton John, one part Kate Bush.” — Uncut
“Her keen ironic sense of humor and quirky sense of the profound is what makes her special as a songwriter” — billboard.com
Volcano marks Saycet’s discography comeback on “Mirage“, the third album for his Saycet project following One Day at Home and Through the Window. Since the last release, he has had four years where he was finally able to devote all his time to music, including multiple collaborations with the Pompidou Centre and France Culture, and a live tour that took him as far as Asia and Russia:
“I wanted to make a much more elegant, more frontal record, something less convoluted.”
Saycet’s new track was remixed quite brilliantly by 23-year old Parisian producer and singer, Julia Losfelt, whom you can find out more about at her music site below.Download Volcano (Julia Losfelt remix) HypeMachine

La Crosse, Wisconsin singer-songwriter Nick Mass has a new single out influenced by the likes of The Beach Boys and The Beatles, which we are definitely picking up on the first few listens. Anyway to top of the B category, we’ll add we heard a little of our old favorites Ben Folds (Five) in the mix of this exceptional new effort.
Nick started writing this song in August of 2013 and spent over a year perfecting the arrangements and the recording, while playing all instruments during the process. The single officially released on the 5th of February, 2015 and is being offered up for free.Download It Just Didn’t Matter HypeMachine
The trio met in Bangkok in late 2013, and in the space of a year and a half, they have garnered attention from an international mix of artists and fans. Members Danny Duncombe (Bass and Vocals) and Toby Willems (Drums and Vocals) are from the UK, while guitarist Dave Lefor is Canadian, both coming from varied musical backgrounds.
Today’s featured track ‘Vintage’ brings Duncombe’s distinct vocals to the forefront with some beautiful underlying guitar and tight knit drumming, a well structured piece that immediately grabbed our attention, building more and more on each subsequent listen. We expect big things from the group, and hope to see as a SXSW int’l featured band in the coming few years.
You can watch out for them at festivals around SE Asia, and best support them by grabbing a copy of the New Role EP when it launches.Download Vintage HypeMachine
