Welcome to The Cornshed Sisters

A huge Memphis welcome to The Cornshed Sisters. We’ve known this lovely North East band for some time, since seeing them play Tapestry a couple of years back, but they’ve knocked us out with their splendid recordings that are reminiscent (and we borrow from a far better wordsmith than us) of a Disney adaptation of The Wicker Man.

The forthcoming album, slated for an April release, was produced by a certain Peter Brewis, of Field Music, and contains wondrous tales of waterbabies, beekeeping, marriage, soothsayers, men in sequined suits, making pies out of people and the axis of love and bombs.

Listen to a highlight ‘Dance At My Wedding’ here:

Frankie Rose announces new album 'Interstellar'

Frankie Rose – ex-Vivian Girl, Dum Dum Girl and Crystal Stilt is all set to release second album ‘Interstellar’ on 19 March 2012, preceded by single Know Me on 30 January.

Frankie created one of the most breathlessly compelling girl-pop albums of the past few years – 2010′s Frankie Rose and the Outs – but this time she offers the listener something strangely other, as alien as it is familiar, as compelling as it is enchanting.  It’s out with the reverb and in with something altogether more glam, glittering, shivering.

Memphis Industries at Indie Label Market

So thanks to all the people who made it out to Koko on wednesday night to help celebrate our 13th birthday, and of course to all the bands, who were simply amazing. We’ve just about recovered ourselves, just in time to tell you all about our involvement with the indie label market.

Its taking place at Spitalfields Market in London on Saturday 10th December, where we will be doing our best pete beale impressions alongside Ninja Tune, Angular Records, and many more.

So there will be signed CDs  and Vinyl, posters, T-shirts and all manner of other delights including a Lucky Dip. And look out for one or two of our bands swinging by to help out. Which is nice of them.
