In a couple of weeks we hit The Roundhouse armed with some of the best that new music has to offer - and all for £5. Take a read/listen below at the line-up and what to expect…


NZCA/Lines is hitting SXSW in a big way this week before heading back for Handpicked. It wouldn’t be a surprise if they emerged as one of the whispered about names. The project is the brainchild of Michael Lovett, who elegantly twists electronica and R&B into sparse, romantic forms.

East India Youth

The first signing to the newly minted record label from The Quietus is East India Youth. His dreamy, swooning sonic explorations call to mind the fractured pop of Julia Holter. Have a listen above and fall in love.


With a debut single out on Moshi Moshi Teleman are already taking over London hearts with their wistful guitar pop. Christina is our favourite from them so far with it’s gently-bursting guitar lines and slow build. Think Cults meet early Field Music.

Dark Bells

We’re enjoying the dark guitar-pop of Dark Bells a lot lately - enough to squeeze them on the Field Day bill too. There are shades of Toy, 90s PJ Harvey and a lot more good stuff to boot. Saccarine vocals make for a nice contrast to the wiry, sharp guitar lines on ‘Want’. Have a listen above.


Paradise took over the blogosphere with their early demos a couple of years ago. Since then they knuckled-down, honing their sound into the gem you can hear above. The blooming, romantic pop of Endless Waves calls to mind early New Order and a little soul too.


Fans of DIIV and Real Estate might just find their new favourite band in Fews. Spindly guitar lines work hard around cavernous vocals. It’s the sort of dreamy indie-pop made to be collected on 7” singles and handmade t-shirts. Take a listen above.

Here’s our selection of excellent shows this week that are cheaper than turning the heating on at home. Follow the links to download tickets.

Tuesday: Hundred Waters - Download Ticket

Hundred Waters have caused a bit of a stir stateside, earning an 8.1 review from Pitchfork for their eponymous debut record. Another one from the folkers is (strangely) soon to follow on Skrillex own label. They follow in Skrillex’s own footsteps by playing a show for us at the Shacklewell with Foxygen. Unmissable.

Tuesday: Paradise - Download Ticket

Blue Flower popped up on the internet recently and it’s swiftly becoming one of our favourite songs of the year. Paradise promise an awful lot for 2013 and if their debut single is anything to go by then they won’t be hanging around Dalston pubs much longer.

Wednesday: Pandr Eyez - Download Ticket

Quirky R&B and Pop music is the flavour of Wednesday as Pandr Eyez hit the Shacklewell Arms. They’re celebrating a single on Double Denim Records called Physical Education which picks over the best bits of Salt ‘N Pepa, M.I.A. and much more. Prep for the party season with a dance.

A wonderful new track from Paradise who play Dalston Victoria on November 27th for us. Have a listen below…
