Barking Orders In German – Free At Last

Cancelled flights, uncertain times and boredom do not sound like the obvious recipe for a punchy, glam punk stomp of a record, but those are allegedly the ingredients that helped new Munich five-piece Barking Orders In German start a band and come up with their brand new full-throttle single. They describe their output as “fuzz-riddledContinue reading “Barking Orders In German – Free At Last”

Let’s Eat Grandma – Hall Of Mirrors

Let’s Eat Grandma’s latest single Hall Of Mirrors is mystical, enchanting, pure rainbow-pop with a tinge of sorrow. The first taste of the Norwich duo’s as-yet-untitled third album is a synthesiser-soaked, electro, shimmering fairground of flashing fairy lights and whirling waltzers, backed with a pumping drum machine, proclaiming a secret, dizzying and confusing love thatContinue reading “Let’s Eat Grandma – Hall Of Mirrors”

Bandicoot – Worried Blues

Citing John Lennon, Bob Dylan and krautrock as major influences, Bandicoot‘s musical utopia sounds far further afield than their South Wales hometown of Swansea. On Worried Blues they bring their idols home with them to soundtrack life in the self-same city. With a handful of scuzzy, blues rock numbers, two of which are sung inContinue reading “Bandicoot – Worried Blues”

Idles – The Beachland Ballroom

When a band reaches a certain level of success, all the rules that applied at the start of their career are off. The fans are committed for the long term so the band can play around with their sound. This is where Bristol punks Idles find themselves as they enter fourth album Crawler. New singleContinue reading “Idles – The Beachland Ballroom”

Wet Leg – Wet Dream

Wet Leg have become the indie phenomena of 2021. Debut single Chaise Longue crept up on an unsuspecting alt-music world this summer and took over. Wet Dream is another slice of art rock to make you blush and, with it, the Isle of Wight duo’s grip on the music scene remains secure. A bit likeContinue reading “Wet Leg – Wet Dream”

Myles Morgan – Ikywc

Myles Morgan’s influences are vast. On the face of it you could presume he was another gunslinger with a guitar, but ‘Ikywc’ contains a whole breadth of styles. The five-minute track is underpinned by a flute and saxophone jazz symphony while Myles’ vocals are Jeff Buckley singing Jamie T, coming to terms with the factContinue reading “Myles Morgan – Ikywc”

Sprints – How Does The Story Go?

Karla Chubb has no more fucks left to give. She’s simply done, with a partner who sounds quite frankly a bit of a headfuck. And thankfully she’s the frontwoman of Sprints, a band who can muster her up a cutting, chiming post-punk backing of a track to deliver the message to said headfuck that she’sContinue reading “Sprints – How Does The Story Go?”

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard – You

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard are the first Cardiff band we’ve featured on Edge of Arcady and, alongside Boy Azooga, are the most exciting alt-rock prospect Wales currently boasts. Since 2019 the four-piece have put out slab after slab of classic 70s glam rock, think T-Rex but written in a house-share in Canton in the 21st century,Continue reading “Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard – You”

Geese – Projector

New York’s next brightest offering comes in the shape of Geese, the US culture capital’s answer to the discordant psychedelic post-rock scene that has given the UK Black Country, New Road and Black Midi. But as could be expected from NYC, their version comes with a more tangible groove. Projector is 4 minutes 25 secondsContinue reading “Geese – Projector”
