Brian's favorite video this week is Ghosting by Edinburgh band Wozniak which is taken from their critically acclaimed Colour Reels album released in April last year.

Wozniak purvey atmospheric shoe-gaze of the highest quality and that's evident in this latest offering from the album. Go seek it out.


No 3: Bad Llama


Brian's Chart Played Radio 18.2.18
We played the last Bad Llama single Apocrypha on the Radio KC Indie Show in November of last year to much critical comment, so it's no surprise we bring you news of their latest single Crooked Empire as a precursor to the imminent release of their EP of the same name. 

The single will be getting a pre-release spin on The Indie Show of 18.2.18 so remember to tune in from 5-7pm.


No 4: Sheafs

SHEAFSare a five-piece indie rock band from Sheffield, which formed in the later end of 2015 comprise Lawrence Feenstra (lead vocals), Chris Goodacre (guitar/backing vocals), Charles Mellor (guitar), Callum Wright (bass/backing vocals), Charlie Eastap (drums).
Following on from the legacy of breakthrough single, This Is Not A Protest, new track, Shock Machineis a bold step up in both power of performance and size of hooks used.
No 5: Who Killed Nancy Johnson?
Brian's NEW Top 10 Chart - as played on Radio KC - 18.2.18
Brian's favorite video this week is Dark Horse by Who Killed Nancy Johnson?

Dark Horse is a single release from their forthcoming Flat Earth Theory EP and the song was written by Anthony, Ball, Moulton, Wren. Recorded November and December 2017 at Creative Control Studio in Bracknell by Al Heslop. Mastered by Pete Maher. Released 2018 on Slip Skin Records.


No 6:Granfalloon
Granfalloon
Granfalloon is the musical moniker of Richard Lomax and his folktronica group based in Manchester. Folktronica is a mixture of folk and electronica. Instruments include Omnichords, acoustic guitars, Casio keyboards, and 80's drum machines. 

It's a delightfully laid back slice of addictive lo-fi electronic goodness which is lyrically both poignant and amusing. Brian will be spinning Ambulance on the Radio KC Indie Show on Sunday 4th of February so tune in!


No 7: Dean Owens

Image may contain: cloud and text
Hailed as "Scotland's most engaging and haunting singer-songwriter" by Irvine Welsh no less, Dean Owens has just released a gritty new video to accompany his latest single Southern Wind from the album of the same name; which is due for release on the 16th of February.

The album was recorded at Mr Lemons Studio in Nashville by Neilson Hubbard and will be available via At The Helm Records


No 8Hanging Valleys

Brian's NEW Top 10 Chart - as played on Radio KC - 18.2.18

Hanging Valleys is an alternative band founded in 2016, comprising of Thom Byles (acoustic guitar, vocals), Mike Phillips (electric guitar, vocals) and Alexis Meridol (beats, synthesizer).


Hanging Valleys music is centred around soaring falsetto vocal harmonies accompanied by ethereal atmospheric phrasing on electric and acoustic guitars, which combine to create a rich shifting soundscape.

No 9: Kadija Kamara
Image may contain: 2 people, people standing

Based in London Kadija Kamara is a singer songwriter who best describes her sound as Alt Soul. With a love of 60’s and 70’s analog sounds, she combines her affinity for retro soul music with a host of modern influences.
No 10: Errant Boy
Brian's NEW Top 10 Chart - as played on Radio KC - 18.2.18
We Like You is the first Errant Boy single of 2018 and a preview of their forthcoming second album, due later this year. Boasting their signature melodic guitar manoeuvres and lyrical unease, it’s a worthy follow up to last autumn’s Means track which appeared on several best of 2017 lists.

Errant Boy has a sound that's pretty unique but if you were to twist my arm for a comparison they're a cross between Jonathan Richman and The Bordellos
