New Australian artist, Katie Miller- Heidke who has smashed all records to-date in her home country for the fastest and most successful crowd-funded album. When Kate parted company with her label she took the ever-growing independent route resulting in an overwhelming and very gratifying response from her army of loyal fans. Her forthcoming album ‘O Vertigo’ was funded entirely by the direct-to-fan platform PledgeMusic with Kate achieving her goal in only 3 days and the campaign went on to reach over 215% of its original target. Off the back of this success ‘O Vertigo’ will be soon be scheduled for release in the UK by Cooking Vinyl
Siouxsie & The Banshees have had 11 studio albums and lasted almost two decades – spanning the New Romantic age and post-punk new wave into Gothic pop. Recent Reissues are from the band’s latter career – the final four studio albums – and spread over eight years. she was a strong female lead singer with a distinct image that led the way for many to follow.
O Emperor a group form Waterford l old school friends from Waterford, who grew up playing together in various bands and discovering the records they collectively grew to love, O Emperor emerged with debut long-player Hither Thither in 2010.
Their recent record Vitreous was entirely produced/recorded by the band, affording much time for them to play around with old synthesisers and other strange pieces of equipment lying around, while also regularly playing host to all-night parties/recording sessions with friends.
Vitreous is a work that finds O Emperor carving out their very own unique aesthetic perspective. The sounds themselves admit a sense of this discovery. Luckily for everyone else, this record is one that is rediscovered again and again with each listen.
no one sun came into being in 2011 after a chance meeting between jamie hewson & nick noone. They instantly clicked & before they knew it had written, performed, produced & released their debut album All We Rely On Is Stolen. From Northwest UK this is their track you’ve chaned your mind again.
