∆ ALT-J

Their name is ∆ but pronounced “Alt-J” since the Delta sign is created when you hold those keys on your computer. Gwil Sainsbury the band´s guitarist/bassist explains

“In mathematical equations it’s used to show change”.

Gwil, Joe Newman (guitar/vocals), Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards) and Thom Green (drums) met at Leeds University in 2007. The Fourth member, Gus (guitarist/bassist) studied English Literature, they began creating music and producing on garageband, they were surprised with the amazing results and “Alt-J” as born.

Alt J mix and combine majestically their instruments,  ∆ material is very modern and innovative, the harmonies are soothing , they allow each chord and word have a life of its own by giving each space, there´s no rush in their music, the are accurate and give each component of the song a function. The result: Stunning clever material.

I  CAN´T GET ENOUGH.

Personal Favorite: Breezeblocks

COMPANY OF THIEVES

My Most Recent Obsession:

2008 in Chicago, Illinois, Genevieve and Marc founded “Company of Thieves” after meeting in a bar and realizing they were both lost in a huge city trying to find their way, the decided to pursuit whatever it is we pursuit in life together and that was how Company of Thieves was born.

Their first release was in 2009 “Ordinary Reaches” which was a great success and in 2011 they released “Running From a Gamble”.

Company of Thieves is an indie rock band who offers both extraordinary vocals as well as innovative and flawless instrumental composition.

Genevieve´s upbeat, strong and fierce voice is extraordinary and definitely  one of the, if not the most important element of “Company of Thieves”.

Geron Hoy

American Mr. Geron Hoy, currently not signed with any label…pretty sure that will happen soon.

Although he says his music has no specific genre i´m going with a country folky inclination.

His music is  smooth, slow and deep, his first EP “Soldier” stays in that description but in “Lunatic” his second EP Geron Hoy adds a more classic rock feeling to  some of his songs (Lunatic) , a bit like early Bruce Springsteen.

Wednesday Dawn with King Charles

Back in 1985 his Royalty King Charles was born in West London.

I love him and his song Ivory Road.

Lyrics extract:

Well you’re the Oscar Wilde short stories in my bookcase
You’re positively 4th street isolated in my itunes
You’r the word in the dictionary that I can’t spell
Can’t describe, can’t put in a sentence but use all the time
 
Your own pair of trousers look better on me
The boots of spanish leather
And the bottom of the sea
Every symbol of love that doesn’t relate to a meaning
Every feeling, every sensation
Only real when I’m dreaming

GENERAL FIASCO

GENERAL FIASCO. Formed in 2006, Irish trio. 2 Albums, 9 Singles, 4 EPs.

General Fiasco, funny intelligent lyrics, LOADS OF GUITARS AND DRUMS that blend in perfectly together. I´m still making up my mind wether they are leaning more towards indie rock or a pop punkish sound…..anyway I SIMPLY LOVE THEM.
