We are incredibly pleased to stream 'Ugly', the new EP by The Sinking Feeling. Straight out

Plaids

For Fans Of: Nai Harvest, For This World Is Hollow And These Hands Have Touched The Sky

Plaids play a brand of Dischord-esque punk which seems to be rather popular at the moment with both Little Ease and Bird Calls enjoying the sounds current popularity. Featuring members of What Price, Wonderland? and Sneinton, Plaids’ split with City Dweller should please any emo fan.

Valys

For Fans Of: Algernon Cadwaller, What Price, Wonderland?

As it stands Valys only have their debut four track EP ‘Compass’ on their bandcamp page but what a stunning EP it is. ‘Compass’ is four tracks of alternative rock which swings between emo and heavier pop punk yet remains strange coherent. Even better then that is that it’s still free to download. Spiffing.

Squints Palledorous

For Fans Of: Touche Amore and Manbearpig

Squints Palledorous are a relatively new band playing a mixture of emo and post hardcore. Not much has been committed to tape yet but the one track demo ‘We Play On A Real Diamond, Porter’ shows some brilliant potential. The live set is roughly recorded and a little loose but it serves to showcase the bands songs - with a bit of time and some decent production these could be the start of a very promising album. These guys are definitely worth watching.
