62 – ‘Lorena B’ and ‘New Manhattan’

Lorena B:

www.lorena-b.com

“Lorena B, a post-dubstep group based in London, UK, already caught the attention of Jarvis Cocker, and respectful bloggers like Cruel Rhythm have favorably compared them to the young electronic producers freshening up the UK scene.

Following the release of their self-produced debut album, they went on a short tour in the UK, and since had their songs played on BBC radio, XFM radio, the BBC Music Video Festival and popular blogs.

They have played the main support for Blonde Redhead and for the Junior Boys, collaborated with international producer BORGORE and other local artists and have been invited to play in showcases in the CMJ Music Marathon in New York and in the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg.

Their passion for UK’s alternative and electronic music, which they frequently play on DJ sets and their radio show, is also apparent in their upcoming EP, with strong influences from leading producers like James Blake, Hudson Mohawke and SBTRKT.”

16 – ‘The Dallas Guild’, ‘The Jons’, ‘Lennox’ and ‘Raven Beats Crow’

The Dallas Guild:

“The Dallas Guild was one of the few unsigned bands to soundtrack a major TV ad campaign with their self-released single Men in White Coats…

Bridging an unlikely prog/pop highway of Pink Floyd’s 70s soundscape psychedelia and ELO’s punchy synth drenched pop songs, The Dallas Guild have just put the finishing
touches to their debut album ”Hello Darkness” and recently returned from supporting MGMT and LCD Soundsystem in Israel.”

The Jons:

“The Jons exploded onto the scene in 2009 and have steadily been gaining fans and throwing parties ever since.

Their first single ‘Walk Towards The People’ was released by Pirates Press Records in time for their storming performance at the final of the 2010 Live and Unsigned Competition, where they were crowned the runners up, beating over 10,000 other musicians to the honour. Competition judge Noddy Holder described the boys as ‘a band you’d want at your party’.”

Lennox:

“Female fronted rock with balls of steel and hearts of gold, Lennox formed only in June 2010 from the remains of 2 local bands – but quickly turned the new line-up into something very special…

Lennox went to Surrey in October to record their 4 track EP with Matt O’Grady, producer for You Me At Six, The Blackout and Deaf Havana to name a few and have come back to their hometown fighting to get noticed and spread the word that Lennox have arrived, and they won’t be going anywhere!”
