Maddee - Leon Rosen - Vinyl Staircase - Tallies - The ROAMies - Moon Panda - Breichiau Hir

Just four weeks on from sharing 'Clouds' Toronto based Maddee returns with 'Dry' another song taken from her forthcoming debut E.P 'Red Mind'. Her soulful vocals are smooth, intimate yet powerful when required and the musical arrangement really is splendid. Leon Rosen shares his debut single entitled 'Summers Edge' described as an end of summer piece the vocals exude heartfelt emotion and are gorgeously distinct as they hold centre stage on this song. Dorking (England) quartet Vinyl Staircase have a new video for 'Sidewalk!' a feisty and potent song where the bands influences inspire rather than dominate. I had some friends from Dorking many (OK many many) years ago, so a little added reminiscing for me, but the song is a fine one. We are back to Toronto again, this time for Tallies and a 360 degree video for 'Midnight'. It's a rich indie pop song and I'm pleased that they referenced The Sundays and Cocteau Twins in their pr

Locks - The Cordial Sins - Ex Norwegian - The Be Positives - Dominic Sen - Bandits On The Run

Locks return to Beehive Candy for a seventh time with their latest release 'In The City'. The bands creativity is notable in pretty much anything they record, this time they have shared a simmering alt folk song with bags of atmosphere and a very addictive vibe. From The Cordial Sins we have their new single 'Cruel'. I was hoping to share the video for it, but it's still unlisted as I write, nonetheless this is a gorgeous and melodic alt pop song that is released today. Ex Norwegian have shared ' Life' along with a video that brings out the psychedelic feel of this fabulous and somewhat sixties orientated rocker. The band may have been around for a while, but they are still putting out some really fine new songs. Our second feature for The Be Positives this time we have 'She's The Girl' and boy does it contrast with the last song. This time the melodic vocals lead with a toned down rock backdrop, last time they were belting it out in fu

Silver - Lucas Laufen - Shadowlark

Silver have just shared their new video for 'Wait'. It's a bright melodic rocker of a song, and the video captures that adding an extra layer of feel good to the piece. Lucas Laufen has released 'A Million Miles From Love' which opens with an acoustic indie folk lilt, and is followed by some additional layers of instrumentation giving the track a richer feel. Shadowlark have a new video for 'Bleed My Heart' which adds to the story line of the song, bringing plenty of drama, to a superb alt pop track. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Silver - Wait.

Sketchy Fancy - The Florets - St Francis Hotel feat. Gaz Coombes

From Australia we have Sketchy Fancy and the single 'Pub Rock'. The bands natural rock sensibilities are fresh and polished and the delivery is both passionate and pleasing. The Florets first E.P is 'Friction Made Fiction' which is a collection of five hook filled indie rock songs where the band carve out an individual and desirable sound. Irish duo St Francis Hotel have the notable inclusion of Gaz Coombes on their new tack 'Liar Liar Liar'. It's a fabulous mixture of soulful vibes, psychedelic sounds and a gospel like chorus. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sketchy Fancy - Pub Rock. Born from the desire to explore and perform, Sketchy Fancy carve sprays of raucous delight. Their collective experience of providing soul-filled thrills and hard-driven riffs has culminated in debut album Good.Bad.Happy.Sad. A lucid ride through dreamy collections and heavy Zeppelins through to Super Ninte

Rubita - Selci - Bananagun - Ets Trio - FEVA

Rubita has just shared a new song entitled 'Let Me Know'. Gently paced and lyrically quite personal this melodic indie folk piece, eases and charms it's way into our lives. From Selci we have a live video for 'We Could Be Together' and the E.P. that its taken from namely 'Effervescence'. Described below as "gorgeous and otherworldly", I can only agree, her definitive style of alt pop really is something special. Bananagun have shared the final track 'Crane In The Tiger's Mouth' from their upcoming 7" single. The timeless pop vibes are there from the moment go as their woodwind and harmonies create a unique and very pleasing sound. Ets Trio have released a video for their imaginative folk rock song 'Lovers to Strangers'. With a combination of refined musicianship and melodic vocals the piece ebbs and flows in a calm and peaceful manner. FEVA return for a fourth time on Beehive Candy with 'We're Not Defective
