The Dufflefolks.

The Dufflefolks make electronic music in a cold shed and sometimes a small bedroom. With intriguing instrumentation such as an autoharp, kaosscilator and a tenori on, they produce an eclectic sound full of different colours.

'These guys are a real hidden gem, armed to the teeth with quality, genuinely original tunes that bring to mind the likes of Bon Iver, Hot Chip, The Radio Dept. and Tunng amongst others'
Green Man Festival, 2010

'Top band!'

Time Out

'Absolutely wonderful.'
Bob and Roberta Smith

Emily & The Faves.

Introducing Emily & her Faves. On electric guitar and vocals is song writer, artist and quirky front girl, Emily. Her faves on kooky drums and Bass supply the backbones to her catchy psych-pop melody frilled songs in a heady 60's mix up. Emily is also in the excellent Stealing Sheep.

'In many ways a classic Mersey band but their knack for crafting wildly fresh psychedelic pop means they stand head and shoulders above tired revivalists.'
Peter Guy ' Liverpool Sound City 2011

'Emily and the Faves' solid indie-pop is reminiscent of the brief early 1990s period when Belly, The Breeders and Lush dominated indie music. Led by Emily’s heavily reverbed guitar, and the bands dexterous unison guitar-bass riffs and strong harmonies. The Faves could be genuine contenders.'
Richard Lewis, NERVE magazine

Buildings are a 4 piece from North London. The project prides itself on disregarding the trappings of the standard indie boilerplate to create something that's as melodic and listenable as it is bold and original.

'Somewhere between early Talking Heads and Jeff Buckley...sounds great!'
Flood (Producer of The Jesus And Mary Chain)

Paul Rodgers, BBC 6Music.

Burning Yellows.

Soon to blow your mind and yet to be discovered, Portland Oregon's Burning Yellows recently signed to the awesome Fat Cat Records (Animal Collective, No Age, Mazes, etc). This is their debut London show. We can't wait!

An atmospheric VU-rhythmic throb encapsulates your senses and lures you into their reverberated world and vocalist Kyja's echo saturated vocals wash over you like a chemical bath stripping away your metaphorical outer layer of dead skin. Burning Yellows continue to daze and mesmerize onlookers with their dreamy, fuzz-laden pop vibrations that will leave you glassy-eyed and converted within minutes.
