KaiserCartel – A one-off headline show for this Brooklyn based act, following their tour with Aqualung and Carrie Rodriguez. KaiserCartel centres around the dynamic duo of Courtney Kaiser and Benjamin Cartel, who combine to produce stunning vocal harmonies over marvellously melodic songs. Described as "Eclectic, infectious music" KaiserCartel's earthy blend of folk-rock and pop will make you laugh, cry, sing along, and want to hold hands with the stranger next to you.
"KaiserCartel is also fat with catchy choruses and great hooks destined to resonate well with any crowd." -Smother.net
Mexican Kids at Home – Great name, great band. These folk are the new pop. In fact, folky slacker pop on a skateboard. 6 Music regulars, Norman Records recommended and perfect for a high summer night out in central London...
David Gibb – Instantly catchy, unashamedly uplifting and really rather good. "If you only listen to one new artist this year then make it David Gibb...quite simply amazing." Word Magazine
"Charmingly quaint and full of contagious energy." - UK Music Search
The Silver Abduction - The Silver Abduction is a new project from vocalist Allison Brice (The Eighteenth Day of May) and composer / producer / all around pop-svengali Andy Dragazis (Blue States). Their work is like a haunting transmission from a lost world of faded glamour, shadowy intrigues and secret loves. Watch them here first...
