RALPH'S BRAND NEW TOP 10 CHART

Published 1.4.17 and as played on 

RALPH'S RADIO KC INDIE SHOW 2.4.17


No 1: Scott Lloyd

Image may contain: 2 people, people standing, grass, outdoor and nature

The In The Garden EP will be the sixth Scott Lloyd release to date and covers insightful themes such as getting older, childhood, mental health and loss. Normally a solo performer, Scott has used a full band to back him on the EP, which is a step away from his previous acoustic sound. The EP was recorded at Limefield Studios, Manchester in July 2016 and will be released independently by Scott.


No 2: Stillia
Image may contain: 2 people, people standing, sky, shoes and outdoor

Ralph's favorite video this week is Let Me In by St Helens band Stillia
The video was directed by none other than Johnny Vegas for the release of their single and produced by his production company Woolyback Promotions.


Filmed and Edited by WASP Video
No 3: Syd.31
Image may contain: text
Self-styledangriest band in the UK Syd.31 have pronounced that they're taking rage to a level rarely heard before.
With two successful EPs and a single behind them, they are attempting to redefine what it means to be a band as society rips itself apart - music with purpose and impact. Imagine Slayer joining forces with Die Antwoord, or the bastard love child of Grace Jones and the late lamented Sid Vicious fronting Atari Teenage Riot
No 4: Floodhounds
Ralph's Top 10 Blogged Band Chart as played on Radio KC - 2.4.17
FloodHounds - 'I Wanna Know' Pre Order the single from floodhounds.bandcamp.com Officially released on iTunes/Spotify etc on 4th March. Video by Tom Flynn Using footage from Fritz Lang's 1927 film Metropolis.
Make Noise Studios/Practice Sheffield provided the live band footage.

No 5: Factory Acts
Ralph's Top 10 Blogged Band Chart as played on Radio KC - 2.4.17
Ralph's long been a fan of Factory Acts who are a Salford post-punk electro duo who live on the edge of the analogue-digital divide, sometimes dreaming, always dancing.
After garnering copious amounts of critical acclaim with their debut EP Thirst in 2014, Salford's underground, post-punk maestros Factory Acts return with their highly anticipated sophomore release Second Amendment which is available on official release April 21st.
No 6: Ian Roland & Simon Yapp

Ralph's Top 10 Blogged Band Chart as played on Radio KC - 2.4.17
On Ralph's Radio KC Indie Show next Sunday (March 5th) we'll be featuring a few a few Americana styled tracks so it was very timeous when Day Became You, the new EP from Ian Roland & Simon Yapp was dropped off via the good offices of the postal service.

Produced by Nigel Stonier (Thea GilmoreThe WaterboysJoan BaezMartha WainwrightFairport Convention et al), the EP is the new release by Folk, Americana duo Ian Roland & Simon Yapp
No 7: Feral Five
Ralph's Blogged Band Chart Played Radio 2.4.17
It's hard to believe that it was as far back as 2013 when Ralph first came across Feral Five and they donated a track to the Ralph's Life CD for the mental health charity RethinkNearly four years down the line, Feral Five have produced another 'banger' of a CD and March 31st sees the official release of Man Cat Doll Machine (I'll forgive them not calling it Man Dog Doll Machine) with some splendid artwork by Tracey Moberly who's previously collaborated with Banksy and Bill Drummond.
No 8:Graham Marshall

Image may contain: 1 person, standing and outdoor
It's fair to say we're fans of Graham Marshall here in the kennel, not only due to his infectious glass-gargling voice but also due to the tenacity of the man in what is for many, a long and difficult path to achieve anything close to recognition, never mind fame and fortune. 
Ralph will be giving a track from Mr Complicated a spin soon on the Radio KC Indie Show so make sure you tune in every Sunday from 5-7pm GMT on rkc.noip.me. and hopefully we'll see Graham Marshall hitting the road soon and not just in his 40' ASDA delivery truck.
No 9: The Lightning Year
thelightningyear
Ralph's Video Of The Week is Endless Memory by The Lightning Year who are a psychedelic rock band based in London.

No 10: Sacrifice & Bliss

No automatic alt text available.
Infectiously catchy experimental Rock duo, Sacrifice & Bliss release their outrageously good new single Kyrie, out Friday 28th April 2017.
Ralph gave it a pre-release spin on the Radio KC Indie Show last Sunday and the Electro-Rock innovators from London are set to hit the ground running this spring, touring alongside fellow Indie-Rock tastemakers Dantevilles
