    Sepalcure

    Sepalcure’s combination of love for bass and 90s house acapellas is the culmination of a cathartic two week collaboration between Machinedrum and Praveen. Their mix of tribal dub, house and two step beats works equally well for both late nights in the club and rainy, introspective nights at home. Detroit techno chords cut through wooden beats, neon synths and dubbed out atmospherics. ...

    Punch & the Apostles

    Utilising traditional styles of music while subverting their pre-determined, anachronistic associations Punch & the Apostles display obscurely the luminescent, deathless forms of a time-drowned epoch through a cross-pollination of jazz, blues and classical punk. The songs are brilliantly rousing and gloriously anarchic. Having already not so much scraped as scooped, blasted, gouged and gashed a niche for themselves in the virulent accumulation of puss and ...
