This is a real treat. 
We teamed up with Sea Records (who've just released the thoroughly ace new Wolf Solent EP) to persuade the New Bums to York on their first UK tour.

They are Ben Chasny, the genius guitarist in Comets On Fire, Rangda and Six Organs Of Admittance, and Donovan Quinn, half of Jagjagwar trippy folkies Skygreen Leopards. The record is a hazy, tipsy treat released on Drag City last month. Music and tickets over here.

We're very pleased to be able to bring you this little treat. Nathan Salburg released a great guitar-based acoustic album on No Quarter (Endless Boogie, The Psychic Paramount, Doug Paisley) last year. He's also the curator of the Alan Lomax Archive.

Alan was a folk music archivist and music collector who traveled the world his whole life recording song and folklore. The remaining documentation is crucial to the history of music in the twentieth century.

We will be showing never before seen film footage from Alan's visits to New Orleans, North Carolina, Louisiana and Mississippi.

For thirty three years the only all girl, Japanese pop-punk trio you need in your life! Can you name another...?

Still killing it live, just as they did supporting Nirvana on that Nevermind tour. Apparently. Very pleased to be co-hosting Shonen Knife's return to Leeds on May 1st. Tickets on sale now.
