Artist of the Week: Stock Manager

November 9th, 2020

Our next Artist of the Week is grunge trio Stock Manager, hailing from Falkirk (now based in Glasgow) who released their EP “Fatalism” at the end of last month and we can’t get enough! 

With every release the three-piece, consisting of Chris, Jack and Melissa, cement a confident and unwavering sense of identity, proving to be both visually and audibly meticulous each time. Their latest release is no different, as expected, an instrumentally menacing assault to the senses. Producing a guitar-led barrage of intense shoegaze tones backed by an understated vocal, with the relentless nature of all four tracks keeping things pushing forward. 

Often bookmarked for their 90’s grunge-rock stylings, bassist Jack would say they’d be more for fans of: “Sorry, Pixies and Bones.” There is something non-conventional about this band, from hosting D.I.Y shows from living rooms to their often intriguing home-made VHS style videos, the trio never cease to keep their listeners interested. 

Chris from the band says he’s: “keen for gigs to start back to see what everyone’s been working on this year. We’re gonna see some really good content from people.” Citing the likes of Chlobocop, TEOSE and Sulka as local artists they’d recommend – particularly for new lockdown listening and we can look forward to “A new single and music video in December and a longer EP around January.” Exciting stuff!

The Weekly Broadcast

November 6th, 2020

Another week, another set of blinding new releases both home and away! Here are our top picks:

Weekend Debt – Pomposity
The Glasgow four-piece make a promising return with new single, “Pomposity” a glimmering indie anthem injecting some energy into these lethargic days. A lyrically sincere ode to heartbreak backed by infectiously catchy hooks, we can’t wait to hear more!

Courting – Popshop
Taken from their debut EP due for release next year, the Liverpool quartet offer up “Popshop” an instrumentally relentless yet wildly catchy guitar-driven hit about selling out to the industry, a daring insight into what’s to come from the four-piece!

Nani – Pure Frustration
Having played at Broadcast back in January, Austrian artist Nani has recently released her six-track EP Pure Frustration. Now based in Edinburgh, the EP which is in places elegant and atmospheric shows Nani’s ability to craft songs and let emotions come pouring out in the music. Title track Pure Frustration is smooth and gentle and sets the tone for the rest of the EP.

Dead Pony – 23, Never Me
Dead Pony are back with the punchy and chaotic new single, “23, Never Me” written about that toxic ex-friend. At the core of the infamous Glasgow punk scene it can be quite hard to stick out among all of the punk acts always being raved about, but this new track with its raucous and wild chorus really grabs your ear from the get-go and by the end of the three minutes you will be more than happy to put it on repeat.

Indoor Foxes – Peach Stone
“Peach Stone” is the latest single from Edinburgh based artist Indoor Foxes has already picked up three BBC radio airplay in the space of a week before the song was released so it is interesting to see what comes next for her. The song lends itself to the same self-produced lo-fi vibe that other Indoor Foxes songs follow, and it really adds to the song, with a highly memorable guitar hook apparent throughout the song.

The Ninth Wave – Unhappy Days (The Twilight Sad Remix)
The SAY Award nominee’s have been releasing teasings of their latest (remix) EP over the past few weeks, releasing a track a week featuring some of our favourites including Dream Wife AND Working Men’s Club! Today see’s Glasgow legends The Twilight Sad offer up their take on “Unhappy Days” producing six minutes of industrial bliss, a match made in heaven!

Kylie – Magic
The song is called Magic and Kylie is not wrong. The queen of pop is back with another bop that is ideal for getting your day off to the right start. Whilst it does not quite reach the heights of Can’t Get You Out of my Head, Magic is still a certified tune and you may find yourself humming away at it all day.

Tunng – Eating The Dead
The folktronica group return with a record celebrating mortality, a subject matter currently at the fore now more than ever, this truly sombre affair makes for comforting listening on these darker days. 

Matt Maltese – As the World Caves In (Acoustic)
This re-release of a 2017 classic from the London crooner, is currently a very fitting love song for the end of the world, apocalyptic melodrama packaged up as a piano ballad, what more could you want?

Larry Pink The Human – WASTED DAYS (INBETWEENS)
The new Larry Pink the Human tune featuring his good friend Joe is not quite the hard-hitting track you might expect from members of Slaves and IDLES. LPtH has proved that he can write a banging chorus in his three previous singles, even gaining indie lad recognition with a feature on the FIFA soundtrack and this one is no different.

Artist of the Week: Quiche

November 2nd, 2020

Introducing the amazing psychedelic pop-rock band Quiche as our artist of the week. The Glasgow based six-piece have been gathering attention within the Scottish music scene for a while now and with their latest release Hor-Cha they show no signs of slowing down!

Having honed their live-set over the past couple of years, securing support slots with the likes of Gently Tender and Lucia and The Best Boys, indulging audiences with pitch-perfect harmonies and blistering riffs aplenty, they began 2020 on a promising note not only being named one of Vic Galloway’s “25 Scottish artists to watch” but relieving the mundane of lockdown by releasing their debut EP Cardboard Sunset, back in June!

Returning with the blinding Hor-cha, we can’t wait to see what’s to come for the psych six-piece!

October 30th, 2020

As we say goodbye to October, here’s our spook filled selection of this week’s new releases, jam packed with mighty offerings from local heroes PLUS a re-visit of this year’s SAY Award winner!

The Vegan Leather – Gloaming
A year on since the release of their debut album and a sprinkling of singles later the Paisley quartet return with the seasonally relevant Gloaming marrying eerie synth tones  with Marie Collins’ soaringly haunting vocal, cementing once again art-pop anthem status with a track destined to be enjoyed live! 

Greentea Peng – Revolution
Describing this track as, “a product of 2020 chaos” this track offers a narrative on the societal tribulations this year has presented, backed by the effortlessly cool neo-soul stylings we’ve grown to love from the London singer/songwriter!

Slow Weather – Clean Living 
The duo made up of Annie Booth and Chris McCrory (Catholic Action) have released their new single Clean Living which is a delightful slow burner. The harmonies of the two voices entwined to create a lovely atmospheric song that eclipses with a rising and haunting outro.

Gallus – Marmalade
The Glasgow indie-punk act are back with Marmalade, an alarmingly punchy song with substantial guitar hooks and an unsurprisingly catchy chorus from the band at the forefront of the Glasgow music scene.

Quiche – Hor Cha
Retaining their signature 60’s melodic charm whilst amping up the heat to 100° teaming the controlled chaos of blistering guitar alongside euphoric harmonies to create a perfect ode to the complications of adolescence. 

Nova – Bread and Butter
Following her win at last night’s SAY Award, there’s no better time to re-visit the fierce sounds of Nova than right now!

Ariana Grande – just like magic 
What can be said about Ariana Grande that hasn’t already. Ms. Grande is back with her sixth album and it seems as though she has released yet another bop-filled one. Just like magic is one of the slightly more laidback songs on the album, whilst still having the ability to get your toe-tapping.

Black Honey – I Like The Way You Die
This vampy return from the Brighton four-piece offers a shamelessly glam and instrumentally unrelenting glimpse into what album two (due for release in January 2021) has to offer!

Coach Party – Really OK on My Own
Really OK on My Own is the follow up single to Can’t Talk, Won’t from Coach Party which teases a somewhat slow start until the first chorus rings in and the song picks up the pace. The honesty in the lyrics really comes across in this song as the band explores the different roles in a relationship.

KAWALA – Pure Desire 
Pure Desire – is just what you would expect to hear from Kawala with another chilled indie-pop tune that manages to have just the right mix of energy and calm vocals oozing throughout emanating in another catchy chorus that will get stuck in your head for days.

Bright Eyes, Phoebe Bridgers – Miracle of Life
A welcomed return from members of one of 2019’s greatest exports, seeing the collaboration once again of “Better Oblivion Community Centre’s” Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers, proving to be a match made in musical heaven. The perfect accompaniment to ease into the weekend with!
