PARTS & LABOR - http://www.myspace.com/partsandlabor
= From the awesome Jagjaguwar label...Parts & Labor hail from Brooklyn, NY, and have been creating electronics-heavy psych/noise/punk/rock for over six years. They cite the following bands as influences and are totally cool with you name-checking them: Hüsker Dü, Sonic Youth, Boredoms, Minutemen, Neutral Milk Hotel and Amps For Christ. They've performed with TV On The Radio, Mission Of Burma, Battles, Matt & Kim, Clinic, Deerhoof, Lightning Bolt, and many, many more.
THREE TRAPPED TIGERS - http://www.myspace.com/threetrappedtigers
= “the act fans of quirky, glitch-filled drum 'n' bass have been awaiting, this glorious, analogue, synth-led trio of tigers will have you crying into your spilt milk in 2009. If you pre-order their thumping, melodious EP now, you will be one of the few to be ahead of the game. Dischord + Warp = a listener's dream come true”
Drowned In Sound
"Produced by Strokes knob-flicker Gordon Raphael, this'll make fans of Lightning Bolt, Battles and Aphex Twin cream themselves"
URGENT TALK - http://www.myspace.com/urgenttalk
= Sheffields finest adventure pop trio
RAMPANT RABBIT - http://www.myspace.com/rampantrabbitsafe
= Continuing Leeds' strong tradition of exciting DIY noise rock, Rampant Rabbit are a rare and strange blend brewed in 2007. Musically, the dual bass trio deftly manoeuvre between complex math funk out riffs not dissimilar to Faraquet or Oxes and sludge-laden doom drones for fans of Boris or Melvins. Also they have fit young faces and lots of shouting.
