Probably our best discovery of the last few months has been Brooklyn’s San Fermin. The track ‘Sonsick’ has been going round our heads since we first heard it a few weeks ago and now Magic Man has got a hold of it and done the impossible by making it even more addictive.
Here’s a track to put you in a sultry mood this cloudy Wednesday morning. Freddie Dickson is a young Londoner who yesterday premiered his first track ‘Shut Us Down‘. We don’t have much more info on Freddie other than that, but this is a simply beautiful track that sent actual shivers down our spine when we first heard it. Very excited to hear more!
We apologise for our lame lack of blogging these last few months. I would say it’s because we’re all just super busy, but you know Barack Obama is a busy man and I’m sure he achieves more than we do on your average day.
The good news is we’re returning to the Old Queens Head on Thursday 18th April for another amazing night of free live music featuring…
Who sound something like this:

Who sound a little bit like this:
Who makes lovely sounds like this:
And just because we’re really desperately trying to make things up to you, here’s a bonus cover by D-E-W-L of Grizzly Bear’s ‘While You Wait For The Others’ which has nothing to do with this Thursday’s O!IW but is just really great.
So after an insanely long three month break (!!) WE ARE BACK! Not only are we back with one of the best line-ups we’ve ever had, but it’s our 5th Birthday so we will be celebrating HARD. This is despite the fact it is January and feels like there is nothing to live for. So please come to the Old Queens Head on January 17th and enjoy all of the below FOR FREE.
The line-up is…
——–OLD DIRTY BRASSTARDS——–
Old Dirty Brasstards is a 9-piece drum & brass combo, playing The Beatles to Lady Gaga by way of En Vogue. They are probably the most fun thing you’re going to see in 2013 and we very much recommend you do not miss out!
Returning for the third time (and for their second birthday celebration with us) is the truly wonderful Goldheart Assembly. They’re an Oh! Inverted World favourite and we’re super chuffed to have them back!
We’re super excited to also welcome KHUSHI onto the stage. Tipped as One to watch for 2013, KHUSHI is lead by a London born singer songwriter’s beautifully crafted and relentlessly catchy alternative pop songs which are a marriage of disarming honesty and irresistible melodies. As the always on it Disco Naivete says, this sounds like an excellent mix of The National, Alt-J, tUnE-yArDs & Bon Iver.
