AIRPORT GIRL (Nottingham/London)
Airport Girl promote their new album “Slow Light”, a glistening downbeat country pop hybrid pitched somewhere between The Silver Jews and the Go-Betweens “16 Lovers Lane” on anti-depressants.
"Swathed in Cosmic Country Shimmer...A toasty soundtrack to duvet wrapped winter despondency" (Metro)
"Mesmerising...an album to make you glad it's winter, a time to huddle indoors and wallow" (The Guardian)

MITTENS (Boston, USA)
Breezy hooks and crisp vocal harmonies inside the kind of melodic jangle that rides on a generational crosscurrent of the Kinks, Jonathan Richman, Papas Fritas, and Brendan Benson.
“Vintage pop… catchy rhythms, handclaps, and sickeningly memorable melodies” (Red Blondehead)
www.myspace.com/mittens

FINLAY (London)
East End noiseniks inspired by Eric's Trip, Silver Jews, Sonic Youth, Pavement and Pixies, mixing skewed alt.rock with achingly melodic lo-fi meanderings.
'Devotees of that knife-edge strip between madness and genius should turn their attention here' (NME)

KOWALSKI (Bangor, Co. Down)
...is collectively 73 years old, approximately 66 metres of cable,1 bass,1
keyboard,2 guitars,a drum kit and four members who go by the names; Louis,
Tom, Paddy and Daniel. They're one of the brightest young things to emerge out of Ireland in the past year and manage to create marvellously dynamic tunes that the likes of Modest Mouse, Death Cab etc wouldn't be ashamed of.
