Casablanca are a new band from London who share the same vibe as Theme Park and Bombay Bicycle Club.

Check out their single Yes above, it’s a real summertime jam.

Here’s one for all you fans of weird and delectable noises. Here’s the title track from the next Mt. Eerie record, Ocean Roar.

Ocean Roar will be available via download and LP on September 4th.

Enjoy!

Theme Park’s new track Jamaica which was recently released on Trangressive Records has now been remixed by US producer and DJ Gigamesh.

It’s a fun mix of all things summery. Check it out.

You can also download it for free.

Keebo - Oh No (Everybody Knows)

Keebo are 4 young women from Camden who first caught our eye whilst playing an fundraiser for Pussy Riot a few months ago. 

Their wonderfully-crafted pop tunes can’t help but hug your soul and make it sway from side to side.

They’re playing The Lock Tavern on August 23rd, so make sure you catch ‘em!

Gallows - Outsider Art

Gallows have truly come into their own since parting ways with singer Frank Carter.

The now 1/5 Canadian hardcore outfit are still selling out shows and possibly have a stronger fanbase with the addition of former Black Lungs and Alexisonfire founder Wade Macneil.

Check out their new video for their track Outsider Art (released Oct 1st) which is to be featured on their upcoming self-titled album which is due for release on September 10th.

They’ll be playing a record release show at The Fighting Cocks in Kingston the night before (Sept 9th). Make sure you don’t miss out on that!

Howl - Leo Johnson

'Leo Johnson' is the first track from Howl’s forthcoming EP entitled, 'Happy Valley' It’s available on his SoundCloud along with his Bleach Mixtape for free download now. The EP has production from the excellent Himalayan Headwaters, as well as extra vocal work from Leigh.

The track has a vibe that’s reminiscent to some of the psychedelic bands of the mid 60’s, such as Pearls Before Swine, and The Art of Loving - this might be due to the brilliant use of effects, the haunting guitars or simply that it was recorded entirely on one condenser microphone… Either way, it’s still an awesome tune and i’m looking forward to hearing the other 9 tracks. 

You can catch the album’s launch party at the New Cross Inn  on the 17th August.

Check out Howl on the facebooks.

Natalie McCool

Natalie DELIVERS. It’s as simple as that. 

An excellent vocalist that we first met at our first Birthday party a little while back, Natalie has some great tracks out as a solo artist with a cover of ‘Nightcall’ and from the movie ‘Drive’ as well as two EP’s and some great videos. Above is the video from the Drive Sessions for her piece entitled ‘America’.

Her talent has not gone unrecognised, a bunch of people including the likes of Sir Paul McCartney and Chris Martin are followers, as well as award winning producer, Steve Levine, who signed her to Hubris Records.

An Interview With… Dingus Khan

I spoke to the band Dingus Khan as they got ready for their gig this week at the Shacklewell Arms in London. The band has quite an unusual line-up, with three drummers, three bassists and an electric ukulele which can prove difficult when making decisions! As I met them they were in the middle of a discussion about whether or not to put up a white sheet behind the stage area.

An Interview with… Smoke Fairies

After their performance at Latitude last weekend, the Little Music team caught up with folk duo Katherine and Jessica of Smoke Fairies to talk about their distinctive style, touring and second album.

Did you enjoy playing Latitude last weekend?

J - It was wonderful. We had such a good time.

K - It’s definitely one of our favourite festivals. It has a really creative atmosphere, there’s lots of woods to get lost in. Aside from all the great music you can stumble across some interesting things, like a person operating a giant wolf puppet telling a weird version of the 3 Little Pigs or someone floating through the air while attached to a giant balloon.
