What's Been Going On At Daytrotter?

While I've not been posting quite a few interesting bands have performed for the excellent Daytrotter sessions. Temper Trap (above), Josh Ritter and a new session by Local Natives to name just a few. Drop by, I'm sure a band you like will have performed for them. They're charging for some tracks now (who can blame them) but a lot are still free.

Coming Up In Bristol...

Ever since I moved to Bristol from Reading I have been pleasantly surprised by the number of gigs in the area. Working in storage in Bristol I look forward to my evenings and weekends! The 9s record company Atomic Records got in touch to let me know they will be playing in Bristol on the 4th. Not only that but they have a single out called Empire Strikes Back. A sure fire way to make me check them out. I think American rock with a slight EMO twist might give you an idea of how they sound but you can check them out for yourselves by visiting their bandcamp site where you can download some tracks for free as well as buy the Star Wars named single.

Who else? Only La Folie! Yes the Sheffield band who have featured on here before are performing at The Cooler on the 3rd June. Thanks to Rob of Call The Doctor for the tip off and a hand in bringing them down to this neck of the woods. Anyone fancy going to the gig with me?

It's Hot Hot Heat outside and on my iTunes

Bandages Bandages Bandages, Hot Hot Heat just can't help repeating themselves and their punk-pop (as RCRD LBL describe it) has always been catchy because of it. It's been a while since I've listened to them and the track they are giving away through RCRD LBL surprised me as it was less pop and had more stature. Check it out and see what you think.

It's our birthday

The blog is two years old today, don't worry it's not the end. I've now got broadband and 637 unread emails waiting for my attention. what I did notice pop in to my inbox was the news that Call The Doctor are giving their single away. It was played on 6 Music (see my last post) and the Bristol based band were unsigned band of the day. Head on over to their MySpace to gather up that free tune. Normal service will return soon, I promise.
