Fake Figures - As We Drift

Ex-members of bands Hotwire (frontman Rus Martin), Atreyu and SS Nova and Scars of Tomorrow. So lots of music talent on board. Watch the 6 minute video of As we Drift.

General Fiasco - Bad Habits

General Fiasco is a band from Northern-Ireland. Still very young but already a big track record. 'Bad Habits' is the first single to be taken from second album 'Unfaithfully Yours'. Could be a breakthrough for the lads.

The Van Jets - Here comes the Light

Belgian heroes The Van Jets have released a new single. Good one again, a blend of glamrock, synth pop and indie.

Noisettes - Winner

Liked the 2009 album of Noisettes, especially Wild Young Hearts. There's a new track from the forthcoming album: Winner. Don't know yet if it's a winner. It's disco, that's for sure.

Haim - Forever

A slippery slope, forming a band with your family. Especially when 3 ladies are involved. But so far so good, California-based sister trio Haim is going steady with danceable track "Forever".

Crocodiles - Sunday

More species. After Grizzly Bear we add some Crocodiles to the menu. Sunday has that post-punk eighties feeling. The Jesus and Mary Chain little brothers. Crocodiles are from San Diego and just finished their 3rd album Endless Flowers.

Grizzly Bear - Sleeping Ute

This is the song I will play a lot the next weeks. Sleeping Ute is the first song off the new album. Very promising.
