In celebration of Volenté’s new single that was released on April 30th, ‘Hollow’ is available for you to buy and keep forever simply by texting ‘track volente‘ to 80818.  If you want to download the song straight to your mobile handset, simply add an ‘m’ after the track name, for example ‘track volente m’ and text that to 80818. 
‘Hollow’ has had an array of excellent feedback from some of the top music industry critics, and is said to be “a breath of fresh air for those who want to get past the mainstream electronic R’n’B genre of recent times and listen to something a little bit different.”  If you enjoy the colourful journey artists like Kate Bush and Bjork take you on, then let Volenté guide you down creative avenues that will blow your mind.
There’s nothing like rare moments between the performer and the audience and the sense of being a part of something incredible, which you get in a live show.  If you’re stuck deciding which gigs to attend over the next few weeks, Volenté has not 1,but 2 single launches based in and around Cardiff, which she would love for you to attend and share in the special performances that she will be putting on.

The Narrows release video for There Are Ghosts In These Machines

Manchester’s The Narrows are fast building a reputation for doing things differently and the video to their latest single is no exception. Combining footage of their recent ‘silent protest’ march through the streets of their home town with scenes of what appears to be them building some kind of monster (and a guest appearance of the Echoes And Dust iPad!), this video gives viewers an insight in to the dark, twisted place that is their communal mind!

New video from Blood Red Shoes

Blood Red Shoes are set to release their new single ‘Lost Kids’ on May 14th via V2/Co-Operative Music.

The second single to be taken from the Brighton duo’s new album ‘In Time To Voices’, ‘Lost Kids’ is a blow to the senses adding more punch to their new change of direction. Laura-Mary Carter and Steven Ansell’s vocals are double tracked for a potent layered effect over a killer hook and huge chorus. Angst ridden cries create a tense and fraught atmosphere, conjuring up images of chaos, mayhem and unrest.

Mary Epworth has been around music as long as she can remember. Whether joining her father as a young child to take part in Gypsy music workshops; a figurative experience which resonates to this day with the concept of ‘duende’ running through her approach to composition, sharing her elder brother’s heavy metal phase as a young teenager; favourite bands Saxon and Queensryche, or finding her true love in 60’s West Coast psychedelia, the 70’s Beach Boys and traditional English song, Mary Epworth has always been destined for a life in music.

Her debut album, ‘Dream Life’, is fast becoming one of the most talked about underground releases of the year. As the single, ‘Black Doe’ took up root on 6 Music, Radio One and Radio Two and early reviews of the album from the likes of Shindig (‘Mary’s timeless songs and pure but resolute voice somehow sound as though they have been there all the time’) and Record Collector (‘a work of bracing originality and immense subtlety’) earmarked Mary as a name to watch for 2012, MOJO recently added their approval characterising ‘Dream Life’ as ‘a warm, yearning love letter’ in a MOJO Rising feature suggesting Mary for great things.

New video from Leverton Fox.

Introducing a surreal and wonderful video collaboration between new East London production house SCRATCH Pictures and electronic musician Isambard Khroustaliov (Leverton Fox). Inspired by the curious frequencies emanating from the arcane ‘Mute Synth’ (built by cult circuit benders Dirty Electronics) and revelling in a turn of the century mysticism surrounding science and electricity, ‘Metamorphosis’ is an uncanny interlude of Lynchian proportions.

Leverton Fox album is out 11th June on Not Applicable.
