Phogg - Classic Water - King Park - Kids Love Surf

Phogg - From The Station.

In September 2019, Phogg's second album "Mofeto: Mashine Adamkosh" was released, an album "about robots that take over the world" which was well received and praised in Sweden and internationally. 

After the cheers of "Mofeto", Phogg took on the challenge of recording two albums at the same time. The goal was to work on these albums in parallel and release them at the same time.

Recording two albums at the same time would prove to be an extremely bad decision and the band was burning out mentally. For a time they floated around with neither direction nor goal, just waiting for their instincts to come to life again.

The music video to the single ”From the Station” is taken from Phoggs upcoming third album ”The Sharkness” that’s being released 16th of April.


Classic Water - Heart to Move (live recording).

Leading up to debut album Concrete Pleasures coming out March 19th, Utrecht-based indie band Classic Water release the last of a series of live videos. Enjoy this live version of the band’s latest single Heart To Move.

The videos were produced in a barn in the Dutch town of Wijk bij Duurstede. The sound was recorded by Matthijs Thomassen; the video was shot by Classic Water’s keys player Lotte van Leengoed.

Facing reality - Heart To Move is the story of someone wrapped up in the stories he tells about himself, so much so that he is simply unable to tell the real from the unreal, the truth from the lie. When disaster strikes, the narrator is confronted by the gap between his yarn-spinning and the real world.

Classic Water - The songs of Classic Water bring to mind driving through dusty backroads of deserted villages, thinking back on what once was but will never be again. The surreal words of singer Tom Gerritsen are guided by stretches of intertwining melodies, alternated with brief bursts of rock and roll. In an earlier life, Tom released folk music as The T.S. Eliot Appreciation Society, playing over 180 shows in Europe. Seeing Classic Water perform live is a visceral experience. The debut album Concrete Pleasures was recorded and produced by Stacy Parrish (T Bone Burnett, Alison Krauss & Robert Plant) in a 14th century farmhouse in Sweden.


King Park - This is the End.

King Park has been turning out mercurial, high-contrast indie rock since they released their 2017 breakout track, “Stay.” Gritty and lush, the quartet’s sound mirrors the antitheses of their hometown, Hamilton, Ontario: on the one hand, blue-collar and raw, and, on the other, artful and lovely.

Following their self-released debut EP, The Light I Can’t See, King Park won the 97.7 HTZ-FM’s Rock Search 2018 contest, which helped launch other Canadian rock groups like Finger Eleven, the Trews, and Glorious Sons. The basement-to-ceiling intensity of their live show has since continued to earn them a growing and devoted following across southern Ontario.

At the heart of the group you’ll find childhood friends and musical co-conspirators Timon Moolman (vocals, guitar) and Tyler Heemskerk (bass, vocals), rounded out more recently by guitarist Brenden Campbell and the animated Nate Wall on drums.

Sneak peeks of their upcoming 2021 full-length, Everett, show the quartet exploiting its strengths. Guitars chime, drums thwack, and Moolman’s broken-up baritone—which often veers into shouted speak-sing—is ornamented one minute by barber shop harmonies, and the next by barstool gang vocals. Songs like “This is the End,” “Stuck in the Middle,” and the title track set up camp in that familiar moment after life has fallen apart, and before a way forward seems possible. King Park’s Everett promises a collection of elegies for ordinary, apocalyptic losses.


Kids Love Surf - Moment.

Kids Love Surf are a collaborative project from Hastings.

They were brought together by the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown and decided to make tunes while they had the time. They have been collaborating remotely from March 2020 onwards combining their love of all things dreampop.

The first single 'OYO' was championed by BBC Introducing South (they said 'Dreamy sounds') and the band have now followed that track up with the very excellent 'Moment'. They have also picked up plays from Amazing Radio and have had coverage from a lot of blogs like Mystic Sons, Subba Cultcha and Come Her Floyd to name but a few.

Live is a problem for everyone at the moment but in an ideal world they will be out gigging in late 2021. A November tour is now in the planning stage as well as a follow up to the current single and more tunes should be with us very soon
