The Nova Saints
Occupying the space between the psychedelic punk of Creation Records, the garage pop of the British Invasion groups, the harmony-drenched troubadours of the American West Coast and the alien soundscapes of 4AD, The Nova Saints are reputed for a their brilliant and eclectic live sets.
'The kind of delicious shoegaze/psych-rock that once made Ride and early Verve so viscerally thrilling.' - God Is In The TV
Superb Shoegaze/Psychedelica from Stockholm.
Space. Kraut. Drone.
"Surging forth on a throb of sleek drum machine, Kontakte glide along a shimmering autobahn where audio technology drifts across the spectrum of retro-futurism – roaring into overdrive, pistons heaving and churning with mechanical glee." - Plan B
The Lost Rivers (Germany)
The Lost Rivers are three extreme noise terrorists from the southwest state of Baden-Wurttemberg, an area more renowned for its prosperous industrial background rather than musical heritage.
"While comparisons with ... earlier incumbents of such wares like Spacemen 3, Loop and The Brian Jonestown Massacre are inevitable, there's an immeasurably distinct edge to The Lost Rivers make up that sets them apart from most of their peers both past and present." - Drowned In Sound
The Electric Mainline
The Electric Mainline are a loose musical collective based in London. The bands sound falls somewhere between shoegaze, punk and psychedelia. This is music for kids with their eyes rolled back in their heads and their heads in the clouds.
The 1st official TEM release came courtesy of Northern Star Records’ Psychedelica series with an appearance alongside The Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Telescopes. This was followed by the self-released 6 track ‘All Too Much’ EP. Since then the band have gone on to appear on numerous compilations all over the world alongside the likes of The Nova Saints, Youngteam, The December Sound and Punk TV.
