1. ANDY BURROWS MONDAY 27 OCTOBER THE RUBY LOUNGE

    The new album ‘Fall Together Again’ out Oct 20th via Play It Again Sam. 

    The single ‘As Good As Gone’ available now.

    Andy Burrows will release his stunning new album, Fall Together Again on Play It Again Sam on 20th October. The album - incredibly Burrows’ tenth long player, between past solo albums and his recordings with Razorlight, We Are Scientists, Smith & Burrows, plus his BAFTA-nominated soundtrack for The Snowman and The Snowdog - will be preceded by the single As Good As Gone and accompanied by a quartet of UK dates.

    Brilliantly, unashamedly melodic, Fall Together Again is the kind of record where the earworms patiently queue up to present themselves one after the other; where songs open out into soaring choruses that soon give way to brighter and ever bolder hooks. It’s a record imbued with the spirit of early McCartney solo albums and sunroof-down daydream soul. It’s shot through with the kind of sun-dappled soft rock that used to radiate from American FM radios in mid-’70s. 

    Following the success of his solo album, Company (2012), which spawned four Radio 2 A-listed singles, and the BAFTA nominated collaboration with composer Ilan Eshkeri that emerged later that year, Burrows booked himself into North Wales’ famously isolated residential studio Bryn Derwen at the end of 2013 to get to work on producing the follow up. 

    While a typically North Walian winter raged outside, in the studio Burrows and his band – a group he’s worked with since their days as Razorlight road crew – channelled warmer climes. From the chain gang chant of As Good As Gone to the Lindsey Buckingham-esque Who Are You Now? via the freewheelin’ City To Coast, Fall Together Again has all the bliss and brightness of an open coast road in summer. It’s the record that will put Andy Burrows’ past way behind him and should see him rightly recognised as one of our boldest and most consistent songwriters.

  2. CRAFT SPELLS WEDNESDAY 29 OCTOBER THE RUBY LOUNGE

    After a dormant period following the release of the Gallery EP in 2012, Craft Spells’ Justin Vallesteros is back with the gorgeously ambitious Nausea. It’s Craft Spells’ second proper full length LP, and first since 2010′s critically acclaimed Idle Labor.

    Since last on the radar, Justin moved to San Francisco to find a niche in the Bay Area music scene. This proved difficult within the regarded garage rock scene and insular DJ night crowds currently dominating the area’s music community. Here, Justin fell into a slump, creatively. With a severe bout of writer’s block he retreated to his parent’s house in Lathrop, CA. Away from the city, he put down his guitar for a full year in favor of properly training himself on piano, the instrument from which all the tracks for Nausea were written.

    Being in limbo between the city and the suburbs, Justin felt actual nausea, added to by his admitted semi-addiction to social media and quickly found himself disillusioned. Vallesteros unplugged from that world as much as possible and completely immersed himself in the music (Emmit Rhodes and the solo works of Yellow Magic Orchestra’s Haroumi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi) and writing (the works of Mishima, for one) that would come to form the LP.

    The demos came together in early 2014 and Vallesteros flew to Seattle to produce  the record with engineer Dylan Wall. Teaming up on the recording with Craft Spells stalwarts Javier Suarez and Andy Lum, the band went into the studio and recorded a whole and complete work, full of ideas and a new found maturity in both songwriting and recording sophistication. Within the first few seconds of lead single “Breaking the Angle Against the Tide” we know we’re not listening to the same Craft Spells anymore. This is a bold, beautiful and lush new sound emphasizing the songwriting abilities Vallesteros always had. An album highlighted by loads of piano, real strings and acoustic guitar, this change is like the color coming alive in the Wizard of Oz. The beautiful “Komorebi” with it’s piano chord progression and sorrowful string accompaniment emphasizes this newfound maturity and confidence as a writer that is the next logical step in Craft Spells’ career.

    Nausea could easily have been a record rife with indecision and anxiety. But like the song for which the album is named, Craft Spells was able to turn the chaos and disillusionment into a work that provides ammo against that very thing, with beauty, vision and melody.

  3. GHOULS FRIDAY 10 OCTOBER FALLOW CAFE

    Currently based in London, but with roots all over the UK, genre spanning GHOULS are an energetic five-piece know for their manic stage antics and sweat inducing live shows. An infectious innovative blend of punk rock fuelled by a powerful horn section and driven by gypsy influences, they always get crowds on their feet and whipped into a frenzied party. After an extensive crowd-fund campaign, including a 30 date UK and European tour, GHOULS unleashed their debut album - the highly acclaimed ‘Ten Thousand Words On’ on the 4th April 2014, with a sold-out show at The Monarch in Camden to celebrate the release. In the crowd that night were punk heroes Frank Turner and Itch of the King Blues, both of whom expressed their support of the band on social media.

    Summer 2014 has been filled with festivals such as Hit The Deck, The Secret Garden Party, Boardmasters, Blissfield and Takedown Festival, alongside support slots with Professor Green, Slaves, Larry and His Flask, and tons more. With a new EP release and upcoming UK tour in October, plus European dates on the horizon, big things are on the way for this lot, catch them while you can!

  4. MINERAL THURSDAY 12 FEBRUARY THE RUBY LOUNGE

    Texan, emo pioneers Mineral have signed a worldwide deal (excluding North America) with Xtra Mile Recordings, who will reissue their two seminal albums The Power of Failing and Endserenading, each on double 45 RPM vinyl, on 20 October 2014.

    Xtra Mile will also release ‘Mineral – 1994-1998’ a 2x CD compilation of both The Power Of Failing and Endserenading with bonus material and previously unreleased tracks to get the uninitiated up to speed in time for some live performances. 


    Mineral are set to play a selection of dates in February 2015, visiting Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. 

    To celebrate this incredibly influential band signing to their natural, UK-based home, Xtra Mile are offering pre-order ticket and vinyl/CD bundles. 

    Mineral formed in 1994 and disbanded in 1997 just before the release of their second album Endserenading. Despite a surprisingly small amount of time together, they’ve been cited as inspiration by a host of bands and artists, including Xtra Mile’s very own Frank Turner. 

    Taking the baton from mid-nineties emo band Sunny Day Real Estate, they crystallised the slow, melodic loud/quiet dynamic that wax sealed the genre, crafting an eternally distinctive and beloved sound. Their debut album The Power of Failing is a passionate paen to spirituality and love, bathed in crescendos of hollered guitar, while posthumous follow-up Endserenading – finished after the official split of the group - broods and simmers with patience, pain and redemption. Both albums are recognised as essential, packed with trailblazing cuts which have since informed plenty of peers and imitators, while never being bettered. 

    The band reunited in April this year - 20 years after the original formation – and will play their first dates in 17 years this autumn, starting in New York City.

    LA Weekly’s West Coast Sound claimed ‘The Power Of Failing’ as one of the ‘Top 20 Emo Albums in History,’ writing: “The empyreal finger-picking crescendos, the punch-to-the-gut octave note explosions, the not-quite-in-key vocals issuing soft-then-screamed confessions about the shortcomings of self - it’s all gorgeously imperfect, from opening notes of ‘5, 8, and 10’ to the harrowing chorus of ‘Parking Lot’”

    NPR Music declared: “Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in my room yelling, ‘Cause I just want to be / Something more than the mud in your eyes / I want to be the clay in your hands.’ You know, for practice.”

  5. THE INCA BABIES + A WITNESS + GREAT LEAP FORWARD (ACOUSTIC SET) SATURDAY 20 SEPTEMBER THE RUBY LOUNGE

    THE INCA BABIES

    The Inca Babies reformed in 2007 to play a 20th birthday party of IBD, the German agency which first took them to Europe, and they haven’t stopped since.

    Founder member Harry Stafford’s penned three new albums since – ‘Death Message Blues’, ‘Deep Dark Blue’ and the forthcoming “The Stereo Plan” (sept 2014) - with more to come. Critics agree their shows are blistering, relentless dark blues-tinged guitar rock sets with lavish helpings of classics alongside great new songs.

    With two number one indie chart singles, four Peel sessions and a Top 5 album in the 1980s, as well as hundreds of gigs across Europe and Scandinavia it’s no wonder the original Incas left a legacy. But with Rob Haynes (Goldblade) on drums and A Witness bassman Vince Hunt as the rhythm section, the reformed Incas have been getting rave reviews in Italy, Poland, Lithuania, Greece and Holland as well as at selected gigs across the UK, appearing with Lydia Lunch’s Big Sexy Noise, Zounds, SpizzEnergi, March Violets and Punishment of Luxury. 

    ‘My Sick Suburb’, their first single for 25 years was released on 7” blue vinyl for Record Store Day in April 2012 and they’ve released another RSD vinyl outing with ‘Scatter’ on 12” clear vinyl in 2014.

    A WITNESS

    TWENTY FIVE years away from the live stage hasn’t blunted the spiky, angular pop of A WITNESS who deliver a host of classics from their mid-80s career.

    The band were John Peel Show regulars and toured Europe and the UK with some of the best names of the time – The Fall, Swans, Sonic Youth and Three Johns among them. Now they’re back with a superb live line-up earning rave reviews for their power and punch.

    Following great receptions at June’s C-86 Festival in London and a co-headline with The Cravats in April, the band also play Stockport’s Blackthorn Music Festival in Etherow Country Park in July and a John Peel Weekender in Stockton on Tees in October with The Blue Orchids, Inca Babies, Nightingales and Wolfhounds.

    The new band teams drumming powerhouse Rob Haynes (Goldblade, Membranes, Inca Babies) with former Big Flame and Great Leap Forward frontman Alan Brown – a Manchester music dream team. Simon Williams fronts the band with passion and verve while original member and songwriter Vince Hunt (bass) completes the line-up.

    Webzine ‘Louder Than War’ said of their C-86 appearance: “Part of the bludgeoning awkward wing of the times and they have lost none of that angular assault.”

    In a six-year career between 1983 and the death of guitarist Rick Aitken in 1989, A Witness released a critically acclaimed album ‘I Am John’s Pancreas’ and a series of 12” singles which made the NME charts together with four sessions for John Peel. 

    But tragedy struck the four-piece when Aitken died in a climbing accident on the eve of the release of their perfect pop single ‘I love you Mr Disposable Razors’ in October 1989. The band’s third and fourth Peel sessions were released as a double CD shortly afterwards. Hunt re-released the album on CD in 2006 to mark 20 years of its release and reformed the band for 2014 to mark the 25th anniversary of the death of his friend and guitarist.

    THE GREAT LEAP FORWARD 

    The Great Leap Forward is a “band” formed in 1987 by former bIG*fLAME singer and bassist Alan Brown when that band came to its planned and logical end in 1986.

    The Great Leap Forward was and still is essentially a solo project, with Alan writing, arranging and performing virtually all instruments on recordings, and carrying out mixing and production in the studio in conjunction with John Crossley at SquareDance Studios (Nottingham/Derby) for the majority of the pre-1990 releases and since 2008 with Anthony Chapman for Finished Unfinished Business and This Is Our Decade Of Living Cheaply And Getting By.

    Freed from the restrictive musical philosophy and practice that epitomised bIG*fLAME, Alan was able to flourish musically and develop The Great Leap Forward into a much more melodic and danceable proposition, yet still retaining the bIG*fLAME quirkiness and attitude/ethos – with overtly political lyrics and social commentary, working under the mantra of “don’t be afraid of change, it’s right to rebel”.

  6. THE BESNARD LAKES TUESDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER @ THE RUBY LOUNGE

    The Besnard Lakes raise immediate comparisons to the Arcade Fire, but those are primarily due to accidents of geography and band chemistry: like the Arcade Fire, The Besnard Lakes are from Montreal and led by a married couple. That’s largely where the similarities end, because if this Quebecois collective resembles any of its Canadian counterparts, it would be as an unexpectedly effective combination of the Dears’ psychedelic pop hooks and the languid space rock ambience of early Broken Social Scene. The aforementioned married couple, singer and guitarist Jace Lasek and singer and bassist Olga Goreas, formed The Besnard Lakes in 2001 as a sideline to Lasek’s day job as an in-demand producer at the Montreal recording studio he and Goreas own, Breakglass Studios. (Lasek has produced and engineered records by Wolf Parade, the Dears, Stars, and many other Canadian indie acts.) The band was originally a full-time project, but before it could record its debut album, the other members of the band left. Undaunted, Lasek and Goreas recorded nearly all of 2003’s Besnard Lakes, Vol.1 on their own during down time at the studio, then self-released the result. Following the album’s glowing reviews, a touring lineup eventually solidified with guitarists Steve Raegele and Jeremiah Bullied, and drummer Kevin Laing. During sessions for the band’s second album, Bullied was replaced by Richard White and keyboardist and arranger Nicole Lizée joined the band. Signing to the venerable dream pop indie label Jagjaguwar, The Besnard Lakes released their second album, The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse, in February 2007 and followed it up with The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night in March 2010. 2011 saw the band embark on a couple of different soundtracking projects, including the recording of music for both Mark Ruffalo’s Sympathy for Delicious and a multimedia documentary entitled Welcome to Pine Point. During that same year they began sessions for what would eventually become 2013’s Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO.

    This album had its humble beginnings in mid-2011 and was completed over the course of a year. Ever mindful and attentive to the most subtle and nuanced details, founding band members Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas produced, recorded and mixed at the stalwart Breakglass Studios in Montreal with long time band mates Kevin Laing and Richard White. Eventually mastered by the renowned Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, this fourth album by The Besnard Lakes’ features heavyweight additions by Moonface’s Spencer Krug and Mike Bigelow, The Barr Brothers’ Sarah Page, the always-enchanting Monica Guenter and the return of Fifth String Liberation Singers’ Choir. The story of the album unfolds its introspection on the endurance of the human spirit during prophetic times as told by a spy or two, maybe more. Each of the eight tracks on the album takes off, coasts, and lands smoothly, with a jubilant slowburn of its own momentum for the benefit of the larger picture. The Besnard Lakes create a distinct and dreamy headspace, an enigmatic and somehow familiar placelessness. It happens in such a way that both the close and casual listener find themselves immersed in the generous sonic vision, one moment as timeless as the next.

  7. CUD + SEAN GRANT AND THE WOLFGANG SATURDAY 1 NOVEMBER THE RUBY LOUNGE

    CUD are a British Indie-Pop band formed in Leeds, England in 1986. CUD consists of Carl Puttnam, Mike Dunphy, William Potter and Steve Goodwin. Though an Indie band, CUD’s music incorporated elements of funk and pop. They were critically acclaimed throughout their career, supported the Pixies and recorded sessions with the late John Peel. Despite this, CUD never broke through to a mainstream UK record-buying audience and remain as one of the most underrated bands from the British music scene in the last 20 years. CUD disbanded in 1995 and reformed in 2006 after the release of their Anthology. "Sexy rhythms and memorable sparky lyrics. The music press hated them, the fan’s couldn’t get enough of em!"

    "CUD are the ultimate in sexual confidence…they inspire individuality!" Melody Maker

    "The tour de force is the CUD drum thing – a man who wins instant approval with his Janus-like ability to alternate expressions of extreme pain with "Hmm, wonder what to have for tea tonight?" distraction…RADA sign this man up now!" Melody Maker

    "Dizzyingly catchy melodies…the best of CUD is yet to come!" Q

    CUD take the States by stealth…their mission to enter America as bona fide tourists as opposed to untouchable rock beasts. Despite the group’s penchant for leather strides and chiffon blouses US customs officials fall for the routine.” NME

    "The band’s soul, meanwhile, undoubtedly resides in Carl’s glam pants, going by the towering inferno that is his voice and his half-voguing, half-jiving moves!" NME

  8. BONE-BOX (ACOUSTIC SET)DAVID REDBRANCH + GREG LARKIN + JIM MCSHEE FRIDAY 11 JULY FALLOW

    "An exceptionally accomplished work of heart" MOJO

    "Lyrics that sometimes sound like Milton…a sound that somehow transplants Manchester to a plain near Tucson" Q MAGAZINE

    "Few albums set out their world as confidently as Manchester’s Bone-box" THE TIMES

    "Bone-Box weave webs of faded fairytales and cross palms with slivers of shattered tales of the everyday thrown from an out of control carousel…a ghostly gospel of drama and dented dreams far more feral than the plaintive lap-steel sometimes suggests. As an epic whole, they are The Master and Margharita filmed by Glenn Ford and scripted by Tom Waits with executive producer Leonard Cohen" BBC.CO.UK

    "Superb…A dark yet hugely rewarding experience and roots rock at it’s best. A stunning yet totally subtle work of understated genius" BIG ISSUE ALTERNATIVE ROCK LP OF THE YEAR

    “‘Death Of A Prize Fighter’ is a work of pure pleasure and originality. It’s stunningly crafted, majestically performed and totally absorbing - a delightful attack on the aural senses. Diverse, rammed full of grit and overflowing with musical brilliance this album is about as good as anything I’ve heard for an awful long time” TOXICPETE.CO.UK

    “‘Death Of A Prize Fighter’ marries its brooding, bruised feel and a distant foreboding that reflects the darker Northern skies these tracks were penned under, with Americana flourishes and a musical yearning and heart located over the other side of the Atlantic” NEW-NOISE.NET

    "Bone-Box are capable of being engrossingly introspective and surgingly primal at the drop of any hat. Indeed, Death Of A Prizefighter sweeps across emotions and heartaches with such a wandering hand, it’s difficult to know whether to cry or cheer each turn. Maybe just doing both is the best course of action" BBC.CO.UK

    "This is brilliant. I don’t remember the last time I listened to something new and it literally made my soul ache. It’s strange and amazing and heart warming and heart breaking and wonderful" LEEDS MUSIC SCENE

    "If you are really looking for a revival in British guitar music, Manchester’s Bone-box may be the combination you have been dreaming of - Bona-fide brilliant" NME

    "Bone-Box have created another classic album – the sound of the “Deep North” – a collection of traditional sounds ripped, re-arranged, repasted and regrown, to be sealed with a loving joy of life and music. If you can be both authentic and original, then this surely is the measure" MANCHESTERMUSIC.CO.UK

    "Lambchop’s dearkhearted British cousins" FLUX MAGAZINE

    "Damn Fine" TIME OUT LONDON

    "Death Of A Prizefighter is exactly what Manchester needs; a worn-out, grown-up, world-weary, wonderfully sprawling yet supremely tight record, dressed up in its Sunday best and dragged through the proverbial hedge backwards" BBC.CO.UK

    "Laid back and beautiful…songwriting genius" JOCK ROCK

    "A beguiling musical tapestry…there really aren’t any bones to pick with a record as fulfilling as this. Bone-box are definitely out there on their own!" KERRANG

    "Darkly insidious and wonderful" CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE

    "Shudderingly Ace" MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS

    "Bone-box are a lesson in simplicity, discipline and imagination it’s clear that they pack a powerful and unique punch" NME

    “They have a cinematic approach, a feverish melange of atmospheric moods and textures, narrative grit, sweat and dirt” METRO NEWS LONDON

  9. RAE MORRIS FRIDAY 19 SEPTEMBER THE DEAF INSTITUTE

    RAE MORRIS TUESDAY 23 SEPTEMBER THE CLUNY

    “A truly gifted songwriter”  NME 8/10

    “A rare refined talent”  Sunday Times Culture

    “One of the UK’s finest young talents”  The Line Of Best Fit

    “Rae’s angelic vocals soar with a transparent emotion and elegant style”  Indie Shuffle

    Following its first radio play last night on Zane Lowe’s show, Rae Morris has announced that her second single from her hugely anticipated forthcoming debut album will be “Cold” feat. Fryars and is for release on 7 July. 

    Rae said of the single and collaboration with Fryars - 'Ben (Fryars) and I originally got together to write something as a bit of fun for something like Record Store Day or a Deluxe, extra track. We were at Ben's home studio listening to Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood's classic duets. There's something so uncomplicated and refreshingly simple about the form of a duet and the way two musicians come together to tell a tale. Cold is a distant conversation between two feuding, fading lovers.' 

    Having released two other tracks this year (‘Skin’ as a free download and ‘Do You Even Know?’) to a glowing response from press and fans alike, Rae’s debut album is definitely one of the most anticipated of the year. The album (produced by Ariel Rechtshaid) is set for release on 22 September. ‘Skin’, ‘Do You Even Know?’ and ‘Cold’ all showcase how truly stunning this record is set to be. 

    Earlier this month, Rae played what can only be described as a sensational and mesmerising sold-out show at Wilton Music Hall, with the crowd hanging on her every move Rae seamlessly delivered one of her most breath-taking shows to date, proving that she is set to be one of this year’s biggest breakthrough acts. 

    Stay tuned for more information on Rae’s as yet untitled debut album out September 22nd.

  10. BEANS ON TOAST MONDAY 24 NOVEMBER THE CLUNY

    Drunk folk singer, barefoot troubadour and cult legend Beans on Toast has been around the block more times than he cares to remember. Thankfully though, with his unique blend of simple songs and no holds barred quick wit, he is an act that is anything but tired.

    With a fresh spring in his step after an incredible start to the year, which saw him conquer his first American headline tour, play a series of shows with Flogging Molly in the US and perform to over 100,000 people in just one week whilst opening Frank Turner’s UK stadium tour in February, Beans On Toast will be heading back onto the UK live circuit for 16 dates across the country ending with his biggest headline show to date at Electric Ballroom.

    Marking the release of his sixth studio album with Xtra Mile Recordings, as is tradition on his 1 December birthday, The Next Album Tour 2014 will be an unforgettable experience as the singer, storyteller and guitar player’s self-deprecating nature goes a long way to break down the barriers between musician and audience, creating a real sense of equality.

    With digital single Keep You added to the XFM Evening Playlist at the start of the year, a Best of Toast Pressed on Vinyl flying off the shelves for Independent Record Store Day and his busiest upcoming festival season yet, anything is now possible for this unmissable performer.
