Getgogetter – https://www.getgogetter.bandcamp.com/…
Stripped back bass lines and lo-fi garage sounds underpin these Go Getters. However while the recordings sound like they were made in a garage or a basement, it still feels like a soundtrack to summer. Catchy lyrics stick in front of their pulsing, hypnotic rhythm.
“If you like Kings Of Leon, The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes or maybe even the Beach Boys this could be the album for you…”
Amarante – https://soundcloud.com/amarantemusic
Josh and Jysi from Los Angeles form the alternative-folk duo of Amarante, specialising in an ethereal and captivating blend of music which they have recorded themselves. Melding haunting vocals together with an interesting arrangement of sounds to create an open and airy feel, the product is something very easy to listen to.
August and After – https://www.augustandafter.co.uk
Intricate and gentle, August and After is comprised of three musicians who combine to form a very suitable blend of indie-folk music. Featuring rich three part vocal harmonies and performances on several instruments such as the viola, classical guitar, piano, synth and percussion, its all serving to create a deeply textured and enjoyable sound.
“With support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Kerrang! Radio and a stream of online press, and lead single Wolves featured on Spotify UK’s official Your Coffee Break playlist garnering over half a million plays, the trio secured a nomination for the Unsigned Music Awards, and are now set to announce their follow-up to Cascades in the summer…” (http://www.augustandafter.co.uk/about)
Hollow Coves – https://soundcloud.com/hollow-coves/t…
Purveyors of folk Hollow Coves are steadily delivering a stream of quality music. Forming in 2013, they have accomplished in four short years what most bands hope to achieve in their whole careers, including the release of 2 great EP’s, international travel and an ever growing fan base, notably a Soundcloud which is garnering more fans by the day.
Simple, earthy, folky goodness with easy going acoustic melodies and vocal harmonies underpin Hollow Coves, with a listen anywhere feel that is particularly great for chilling out to.

Alon breaks everything down and returns to basics on his debut solo instrumental album ‘Core Values’. Employing an almost exclusively acoustic sound, the album is dedicated to acoustic guitar in particular. After performing for more than a decade with a large array of musicians from jazz, rock and singer songwriter chops, Alon has nailed his own unique style of acoustic music here on this album.
