Hundreds - Four Star Riot - The Fatbirds - Lynne Hanson - Tess Anderson - Tex Moonlight

Hundreds have just released 'Body Of Water' a crisp and rhythmic electro pop song where the vocals add melody and a personal feel to the piece. === It's been a while since Four Star Riot last appeared here, the good news is that they are back with a new single entitled 'Wrapped Up' a striking and vibrant indie rocker. === Originating from Belgium The Fatbirds latest track is 'Leaving Tonight' and it's fabulous song that packs emotion whilst drifting somewhere between indie and singer songwriter in style. === Lynne Hanson latest song and video is 'Long Way Home' a mixture of Americana and bluesy country rock, her vocals are wonderful and the song is laden with natural passion. === From Tess Anderson we have 'War Paint' where the mixture of alt pop and personal feelings are notable on this very engaging ballad. === As we have said on numerous occasions Beehive Candy is always on the look out for originality and genre defying songs, so Te

Six Of The Best: Sloucher - Essie - Hawk - The Blue Aeroplanes - Four Star Riot - Sleepytown

Sloucher - Waiting to Start. Background - Like a lot of bands, Sloucher started off as a relatively unambitious project. After writing a batch of songs on acoustic guitar to sate his downtime as drummer in a couple of revered West Coast bands Cayucas and Hibou. Jay Clancy decided to better harness the melodic thrusts bouncing around his head, eventually recruiting guitarist Kyle Musselwhite (The Globes) and drummer Jack Hamrick to solidify Sloucher as a trio. “The record really started as me testing myself to see if I could actually complete an entire record of my own songs,” explains Clancy, who recorded most of the EP himself. “I had written a batch of songs that were all basically little snapshots of my life from the past few years, and wanted to get involved in a recording project.” Certainty, the resultant collection of seven songs, deals in the kind of melodic interplay typically found in the more voluminous aural panoramas of Elliott Smith and similarly alchemic songwriters.

They've just released the brilliant ‘An Extended Play EP’ following up the Libera Awards nominated 'Sun Street (2015)'. It’s a kind of comeback for Nigel and his songs, Six Of The Best from the Low Countries – songs re-imagined and given the full band experience recorded in a pro studio assisted by a band of great musicians, people and friends. The band came together to help Nigel and Els perform at the launch of their final album 'The Invisible Ray' (2013). This proved to be so enjoyable they found they couldn't stop. Nigel, feeling 'songed out' and a bit mental at the time, was then persuaded by the rest of the band to enter the studio and record six of the best. A last hurrah that sounds amazing... Nigel and Els formed the Low Countries in 2007 and they've released 8 or so albums and other sundr
