    What if your mother tongue is an ancient language of a land that you’ve never lived in, whose native speakers have only recently broken 200 years’ silence? What if the only place it has ever existed over the years is hundreds of miles away, in your home and your heart?

    Le Kov (The Place of Memory) is the second solo album by Welsh singer-songwriter and musician, Gwenno Saunders. Created alongside long-term collaborator and producer, Rhys Edwards, with additional drum engineering by Gorwel Owen (Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, Super Furry Animals) and mixing and additional programming by David Wrench, it is an exploration of the individual and collective subconcious & the ‘dream state’, the myths and drolls1of Cornwall, and the history of the survival of our lesser known Brythonic language. It’s also one of 2018’s most beautiful and stirring records, swirling with ancient myths and urgent modern themes.

    Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

    Alternative Rock

    Since the band’s inception, Rolling Blackouts C.F. have carved out a unique place in the local musical landscape with their penchant for hooky guitars and undeniable melodies, married to lyrics that are intelligent and wide-eyed, with an unmistakably-Australian dry wit. The French Press EP landed on many ‘Best Of 2017’ lists, including The Guardian/The Observer ‘Hidden Gems’. Meanwhile, lead single ‘French Press’ made countless end of year lists including coming in at #10 on Rolling Stone’s Best Songs of 2017, while the band came in at #13 in Paste Magazine’s Best New Artists.

    Dream Wife is more than just a band, Dream Wife is a way of life. You’ll struggle to find a tighter knit trio than the fabulously fierce Rakel Mjöll (vocals), Alice Go (guitar) and Bella Podpadec (bass), whose art school roots have informed their all-encompassing aesthetic and sharp eye for detail. This band aren’t just about bashing out insanely good guitar bangers that conjure up visions of Blondie by way of Bikini Kill, ESG and Pat Benatar – though on the songs that make up their debut album, out early 2018, they certainly do that too – they’re about creating a wonderful world to dive into headfirst and everyone is invited along for the ride.

    Boy Azooga’s debut album, 1, 2 Kung Fu, is piloted by Davey Newington, a young man with much musical heritage. One of his granddads was a jazzer who played drums for the Royal Marines. Davey’s dad (violin) and his mum (clarinet) both played, and met, in the BBC National Orchestra Of Wales. Davey himself also enjoyed orchestral engagement, playing in various Welsh Orchestra’s and Jazz bands as a teenager.

    Davey took up the drums at the age of six. More recently, and operating as one Bongo Fury, he became the rhythmic pulse for Charlotte Church’s Late Night Pop Dungeon, sat behind the kit as Charlotte plied joyous pop hedonism to Glastonbury and beyond. This would have been enough for some, but now Davey returns as Boy Azooga. The oldest song on the debut album is Hangover Square, titled after Patrick Hamilton’s celebrated and blackly compelling 1941 novel of the same name. The book was given to Davey by his dad as Davey left home at the age of 18. He was so taken with the novel that he almost immediately turned the book’s narrative into a song. Now, completing a circle, Newington senior plays strings on the Boy Azooga album. Davey plays everything else.

    Davey’s vocals and arrangements carry the tunefulness of The Super Furry Animals. But the palette extends far beyond singer-songwriterly poignancy. Davey recruited friends Daf Davies, Dylan Morgan and Sam Barnes to form the Boy Azooga live quartet, an ensemble that swings smoothly from filmic instrumentals to a churning, rave-tinged rock that hints at both Can and their progeny in Happy Mondays.

    Goat Girl

    Garage Rock

    From the very beginning Goat Girl were always threatening to turn into a special band. Songs that use subtlety as their main ingredient while remaining disarmingly fierce at every turn. Lyrics that mean everything despite being written down in the most simplistic and non-aggressive way possible… they are an anomaly in the UK music scene as 2016 draws to a draggy close: four people playing guitars, bass and drums who have the ability to make you feel //alive// again.

    The best music always comes out of nowhere, and Ellie, Lottie, Naima and Rosie seem as surprised as anybody to find themselves in their current position. “A year ago me and Ellie were playing this cult open mic night in south London run by someone who used to be in Hawkwind,” says Naima. “Then we met Lottie in the street outside a house party, then we met Rosie in the audience at The Windmill in Brixton, and then we became Goat Girl.”

    Named in reference to the questionable Bill Hicks comedy sketch Goat Boy (“It’s disgusting,” says Lottie, although she’s quick to add: “But I like his social commentary, and the satirical element to what he did,”) the band are fresh out of their respective London colleges and a million miles away from everything else ‘new’ you’ll hear right now.
