Glastonbury. Not just a film by Julien Temple. It’s also a music festival. Some of the Chrysalis lot will be down to fill your Somerset-located ears with joy including LAURA MARLING, BROKEN BELLS, THE BIG PINKFAKE BLOOD, THE CRIBS, THE LIGHTNING SEEDS, FIELD MUSIC, ALABAMA 3, TEDDY THOMPSON and I AM KLOOT. If you haven’t already got a ticket, then consider parachuting in.

Perhaps you missed this? – carve 25 minutes out of your schedule and watch this BRILLIANT C4 documentary on ‘Blame it on the Boogie’. Heartbreaking but really interesting. Watch HERE.

They are not from Egypt and they do not make Hip Hop. They do, however, make dark, melodic grunge gems, sensational lush scuzzy pop, and a rythym section that make me think that ESG and Mani from the Roses got together and made a baby and called it brilliant. We couln’t be happier to have signed them because we all think they’re fookin marvellous. Check out the video for ‘Wild Human Child’ below and do venture across the internet to see more here.

..there’s only so long you can skip around Hoxton in red suede shoes alone at twilight without running into a gang of hooded adolescents with pocket hungry fingers and a taste for iphones. Still five against one definitely was a fair fight. And kicking a man on the floor is pretty chivalrous.. So, you spineless little fuckers (they weren’t that little, obviously), this playlist is for you. Don’t spend it all at once. Listen here (and seek counselling here.)
