Girly by The Machine Room"Long enough to make love to, doesn't wet the bed anymore and will make you breakfast.“ - The Machine Room
Ever by Dead Boy Robotics"Hexagonally limbed, three headed new wave nerd, seeks the progressively minded for creating epic Vangelisian soundscapes and summoning thunderstorms with tribal drum pummelings. Must like our owl, glitter and Xbox live. 4EVER" - Dead Boy Robotics
Two singles for the price of one! This is the first in what will hopefully be a lot of split singles from Edinburgh's Tape Studios! Released on the 23rd May. More below...
Darkness Coming by Galleries"Grandiose, non-gender specific, lonely heart with no trace of a sense of humour and as old as time itself seeks similar. Enjoys black and white film, walking in the dark and large quantities of sound. Must have a good imagination and a void in their soul." - David (Galleries)
Fit the bill? Then click on the cover art!
History/Hallam by The Spook School"Early/not-yet twenties indie-pop band seek friendly ears. Boy-girl-boy-girl harmonies, jingly-jangly guitars, lots of reverb, partially-naked drumming and GSOH. Likes walks by the seaside, John Cleese, androgyny. Will you eat Jaffa Cakes with us?" - Naomi Todd (The Spook School)
Well, will you? (Please note: Must supply your own Jaffa Cakes)
Call Of Youth by The Little Kicks"For us Call of Youth = a summery indie pop song with a stack of catchy vocal hooks, nice shiny guitars and a fair bit of balls thrown in for good measure. It also has a deliberately big thumping outro- just like all the best songs should have!" - The Little Kicks
