Goldbringer are an exciting outfit from the secluded depths of south Wales. The brain child of Ben ‘Bone’ Honebone, Goldbringer was originally a side project which allowed Ben to express his creative urges whilst allowing him to front other Welsh bands. After releasing two stellar EPs entitled ‘Stand Up’ and ‘Play’ in 2007 and 2009 respectively, Ben joined forces with percussionist and composer Wayne Absalom. The creative partnership propelled Goldbringer’s sound on to a new plane, forming a dialogue between both rock and classical styles.
Citing influences ranging from Muse to Steve Wilson, Goldbringer creates a bespoke, individual sound with a huge scope. The mixture of a strong sonic palette and tasteful lyrics allows Goldbringer to appeal to a variety of differing audiences.
Ben also works in collaboration with other artists in creating his own branding and media content. This holistic approach to the arts in creating his own musical landscape makes for exciting results, and Goldbringer's flexible approach has not gone unnoticed in the regional press.
Goldbringer are set to release a stunning 12 track album entitled ‘Telling The Truth’ featuring lead track ‘Humour Me’.  Described as an "ambitious and epic" with “eclectic time signatures interweaving irresistible hooks and haunting vocal melodies to create a unique musical experience” the album is a cohesive amalgamation of everything Goldbringer has come to represent.   Ultimately ‘Telling The Truth’ is told cleanly, purely, and without compromise to the musical integrity of the project, highlighting elements of social commentary and emotional interaction.
‘Telling The Truth’ is available now.

‘Stand On Me’ tells 12 tales, some taller than others, and some absolutely honest and true. At times it’s a heartbreaking, drunk in the blackness, fumbling for a lighter to burn your bridges record – but it’s as blindly optimistic as it is dark.


“London's seedy underbelly hasn't been chronicled this vividly since The Libertines' debut." - Q Magazine


Co-writers and singers Billy Barratt and David Vincent had this to say about the new album, its title, and the songs therein...


“We thought it important to choose a title that represents the bigger part of the songs on the record, and 'Stand On Me' is one of those reassuring statements that if you're lucky, someone close to you might say to you when you feel like you’re out of options, letting you know you can lean on them and it's all going to be alright”.


“A lot of these songs are about that, not letting people you care about crumble and disappear with the rain, it's a positive thing and we wanted to embrace it”.


This album, however, is not soft or mushy – it’s as aggressive as it is sincere. It’s Americana, dragged through South London... kicking and screaming.Recently signed to Swiss label Deepdive Records, this hard hitting, country-tinged record stretches further afield than the debut album ‘She’.


Covering the UK, Switzerland, Germany and Austria, the band will support the release with tour dates in each region.

A heady mix of catchy melodies, pop sensibilities and ramshackle, chaotic pop-punk riffing they are not an easy band to classify and could easily draw admirers from both the mainstream and the alt-rock community"



The Rogue recall a gallant wardrobe of 1960s heroes from Arthur Lee to Bob Dylan, while imprinting their influences with fresh emotions and ideas. As an introduction to an outrageously good live band you could do far worse than investigate this beautiful and troubled album...' 


SHINERS new single ‘Pressure’ 
Taking influence from some of the more dance based Brit pop tracks (think 'Moving' by Supergrass) mixed with Wilco Johnson style scratchy guitars and a melody that Bowie would be proud of. 
Reflecting upon the strain and expectation on young people in the modern world to deliver, perform and succeed at any cost, SHINERS deliver yet another brilliant social commentary on our society. Available on cassette, the single follows on from their last offering, "Just Like You"
After a summer of supporting the likes of Spector, The Bohicas, Nothing But Thieves DMA’s, and receiving great radio airplay from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Radio X’s John Kennedy & Jo Good, Absolute Radio's Simon Reymond, BBC Introducing + many more, SHINERS have announced their first headline show at The Waiting Room, London on Wednesday October 28th

Righteous Reprobates emerge with hard hitting single ‘My Psychosis’
available from December 7th
At the heart of Righteous Reprobates are the song writing talents of Rob White (Guitar, Vocals), with the excellent drumming of Charlie Kenny, the exciting Jack Griffiths (Guitar, Vocals), and the rock-solid and imaginative bass of Jack Collier. Based in London and Kent, they are now raring to take their music far and beyond! (News of upcoming live gigs may be expected soon.)
The creation of Righteous Reprobates is the culmination of Rob's effectively life-long obsession with music, and the belief that there should be good quality Rock - with plenty of hooks and tunes - for people to hear and enjoy. Merging elements of Britpop and the modern rock of bands like Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian with classic rock from the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Pink Floyd, Righteous Reprobates have developed their own unique sound and aesthetic which is very exciting, interesting and engaging. "Give me something sweet and moreish I can chew" sings Rob (in 'My Psychosis') - and this is just what RR have done! ‘My Psychosis’ is the trailblazing first single from Righteous Reprobates, aimed at conveying their aesthetic to the world and giving a first taste of the album which will be available fairly early next year. 

Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfTL276x1LI

The band recorded at Sean Kenny's Ten21 Studios in Kent, and mastered the album with Sean Magee at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Some Video footage was then shot at Paul Collier's Perry Vale Studios. This wealth of experience and the quality of the people involved, added to the strong lineup of the band and the quality of Rob's songs, really shows in the album.

Ma'Grass now return with their new single Made Up
Born from the mind and heart of multi-instrumentalist and music producer Matteo Grassi and singer songwriter Ella Bites, Ma'Grass is now made up of some of the greatest young session musicians from the UK and EU.
Having already received extensive radio play which has contributed to them being invited to perform at a number of festivals and prestigious music venues in and around London, the exposure they have received has to date helped them sell over 3,500 copies of their current album.
Quoted as brewing a blend of music styles juiced into their own, you can find out more information on Ma'Grass including forthcoming gig dates and how you can purchase their material by visiting www.magrass.net or you can follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/FunkinMaGrass

The Spacer set for impressive release featuring Peter Cox
‘Creature’ is available now
Welcome to the fantastical world of The Spacer. Conceived by Tapio Kangas and featuring a host of stellar musical legends, Spacer aims to inform and educate the world on the existence of extra terrestrial life. Born in Helsinki and currently residing in London, Tapio has written many major TV show tunes and top 10 songs whilst making frequent appearances on Finnish TV and his own TV show. His classical training enables him to intersperse traditional melodies with futuristic soundscape to creating the sound of Space
The Spacer is set to release their debut single ‘Creature’ later this year. ‘Creature’ is part of a story entitled ‘The Artefact’; a graphic novel and album detailing how extra-terrestrials perceive Earth and their concern over its inhabits and the direction the world is heading. The song is essentially a magnificently sounding space opera with a clear message.

The concept of Spacer is to mix facts and fiction whilst playing with people's beliefs and conceptions about extra-terrestrial life in a new and exciting way. The phrases "they're already among us" and "certain things are true whether you believe them or not" apply to everything that The Spacer is about. 
The Spacer has drawn on a number of leading musical lights including Peter Cox, Chaka Khan and Nik Kershaw to contribute to the release. Peter Cox of Go West fame features on ‘Creature’ where he demonstrates the dynamic flair and precision he is noted for. This impressive troupe is set to take the world by storm and ‘Creature’ is the soundtrack to their conquest.
‘Creature’ the debut single from The Spacer is available now

Year of Glad is an experimental ‘drone-folk’ collaboration from Montreal that’s drawn comparisons to Volcano Choir, Amen Dunes and Sigur Rόs. The songs were conceived by A.P. Bergeron among the overgrown, abandoned homes and broken-down mills that litter the landscape of rural Nova Scotia, his childhood home, and then brought to a shifting band of collaborators to carve out a truly otherworldly sound—a shared fever dream at the intersection of folk, jazz, doom, and psychedelia. ‘Blythe’ is taken from their first album, Old Growth, which we are releasing on coloured vinyl and download on the 13th November.

VERIDIA who are based in Nashville, USA.   

new single Pretty Lies taken from their new EP of the same name.

Taking their name from the Latin word 'Veritias' which means truth, the band has quickly gained an ever growing fan base through high profile gigs across the US resulting in their debut EP Inseparable receiving much chart success and to date selling over 30,000 units worldwide.  
J.J. Francseco of New Release Today recently said about the Pretty Lies EP "VERIDIA has proven that they have the power to really go the distance with memorable and passionate music that can play with the best veterans of the industry.  In a year that has offered little in the way of truly stand-out musical releases VERIDIA has come to save the day with what may be the best Rock EP to be released since their last one".
You can find out more information on VERIDIA including forthcoming gig dates and how you can purchase their material on their website www.veridiamusic.com or you can follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/veridiamusic

Reole is cooking up a storm with new album

‘What’s Cookin’ set for release on December 4th

Funkmaster general Reole is following up his dazzling album ‘Hear Come The Drums’ with an equally incredible offering ‘What’s Cookin.’ The album is a warm homely feeling album that is honest and not over spiced. The cooking music part is equally influenced by cooking food. We suggest cooking up one of his fantastic recipes while blasting this brilliant record on full volume.

Watch 'Got Your Back Girl':

Download 'Got Your Back Girl' here:

Reole started his musical life playing brass in Mardi Gras parades. Later, once back in Scotland, he then set about the airwaves with Ritchie Ruftone on pirate radio and pioneered the introduction of illicit underground Broadcasting across Europe – from Scotland, Germany and beyond.

A harmonious multiculturist, Reole is a huge American football fan and that energy and passion comes across in his music. The number 13 has always been his address, is his lucky number and his albums all have 13 tracks.
Reole also runs Turntable Training Wax which demonstrates his dedication not only to the performance of music but to its preservation of vinyl for future generations.

‘What’s Cookin’ is sure to set ears twitching and tummy’s rumbling everywhere with its blend of instrumental funk, jazz and classic rock. It’s an album with subtle touches and fantastic production.
Get hold of what Reole’s been cooking up on December 4th.

If you’d be interested in chatting to Reole please just let me know and I can organise an interview for you. Really looking forward to hearing your thoughts. 


PORTABLEhigh from the Isle of Wight. I have attached 2 of their tracks from their new EP Man From The Light.
