New SPC ECO EP out now! →
Really addicted to this Bloody Knives track recently. The guitar (synth?) part sounds like something from a Japanese cartoon and the vocals are just beautiful. And it’s a free download!!!
Rose Berlin - Anyway →
In case you missed this 1st time around. Rose was just 15 when they recorded this in 2006. Some fantastic tracks here, my personal fave is U and I Forever. Check it out.
New project from Kim and Perry of Morpheme/Bliss City East/Skylight. Name you price; all proceeds go towards an operation for their daughter Ada.

XD Fest come down
I’m back from the USA where I was lucky enough to attend the XD Label Launch in Chicago. If you didn’t go, you missed a hell of a show; every single band played an outstanding set and it’s a memory I’ll cherish for a long time. When ‘XD Fest 2’ is announced I can thoroughly recommend taking a trip or organising a vacation around seeing it. Chicago itself is a...

This weeks ‘XD artist track of the week’ comes from Philadelphia based band Music For Headphones. ‘Early Afternoon’ comes from their 2011 album ‘Alternate/Preface’ and I recommend you go check out their other work if you enjoy a little psychedelic rock:
