We’re revving up for Duologue’s album launch show in February. The band have blossomed into one of our favourite live acts over the past couple of years. This gorgeous take on Push It is a good example with it’s 7 minutes of ebbing, stately indie pop. Take a watch above and don’t miss out in February.

Sinkane cut his teeth touring and playing with the likes of Caribou, Yeasayer, Eleanor Friedberger, Born Ruffians, and Of Montreal. It makes sense that his own music would be at least as exciting as that esteemed company and we’re spinning ‘Runnin’ a lot lately. He joins us on April 3rd for a show at Hoxton Bar and Kitchen. Give ‘Runnin’ a spin above…

Here’s another gorgeous new one from Cloud Boat. Wanderlust is due out on R&S sister label Apollo and again merges swooning almost drone-like textures with yearning vocals and flecks of post-dubstep sounds. Have a listen below and see them on 5th of March at The Waiting Room for FREE.

The superb new record from Local Natives is out today in the UK and we highly recommend picking it up. Other places do too - the band just scored a high 8.1 review on Pitchfork. You can grab a free tune from the record below as a taster…

Here’s an excellent new video from Darkstar’s Amplified Ease. The vid features a heavy dose of psychedelia and face smooshing - a perfect match for the song’s brain melting hum.

If that one grabs you (which it will) then you can listen to the whole record below and catch them at XOYO on 25th of February.

Another episode of Field Day Radio has dropped, this time featuring Ethiopian legend Mulatu Astatke and CHVRCHES interviews and lots of excellent Field Day related music too. Have a listen below…

4. Blade Runner

5. Black Sabbath - Planet Caravan

Gold Panda - Trust

Duologue have released new single Push It this week ahead of their album - which we’re helping launch at Hoxton Bar and Kitchen on February 13th. Take a look at the video for Push It above in all its glory as we eagerly await the record.

Another wonderful live clip of Savages, this time taken from their Electrowerkz show with us last year. They make quite a case for being one of the UKs very best live acts at the moment and certainly the most promising - we’re hoping for an album this year! In the meantime Savages play Electric Ballroom for us next month and then hit Field Day again too.
