The Pigeon Detectives
Broken Glances

Dance to the Radio returns in order to release the new album from Leeds platinum selling (sorry this must be a mistake.....no...it's true) rockers the Pigeon Detectives. They've previously been known for their meat and potatoes non-threatening rock but with Wild Beasts, Ghost Poet and local tape...view item »

Sometree
Hands And Arrows

Germans on Dance to the Radio?? The Leeds label is going global now with SOMETREE's 'Hands & Arrows' which has a kinda Radiohead meets Mew melancholic euro rock feel to it. After Autokat, this sounds thou roughly impassioned & deep,  It has a beautifully conversational bassline to it under the...view item »

The Scare
Bats! Bats! Bats!

Now The Scare with some pouting rocking showbiz nonsense entitled Bats Bats Bats. Cock rock with screaming American affected style vocals over distorted animal riff. B-side is more interesting and imaginative but still ultimately throwaway.....yeh yeh yeh. On Dance To The Radio ...view item »

Bobby Cook
Deja Vu

Bobby Cook has a 7" out on Dance To The Radio. Twinkly sounding commercial indie rock which is all very competent and polished and ends up sounding a little sterile. It's a decent enough tune and the guy is clearly talented. I'm not sure if it's all that (I don't know what that means but I reckon it makes me sound like I know what I'm on about...view item »

Maggie8
Charming Lady EP

The Pigeon Detectives
Take Her Back

Hey up cheeky monkeys its the new single from Dance To The Radio's Pigeon Detectives. Its a jaunty throwaway pop song which will get the indie disco's dancing I'm sure. Its called 'Take Her Back' and sounds like the soundtrack to Hollyoaks....view item »

Shut Your Eyes And You'll Burst Into Flames
Drop The Decade

Edgey is the word here and it reminds me of when The Rapture were good... see also Bloc Party, Forward Russia and all of those other spiky sounding things. There's a touch of 80's pop about this as well,  though exactly which 80's pop is currently eluding me. Both Ant and me have decided it's super catchy though and for what ...view item »

Brian has just looked at me as if I was performing magic using the remote control to turn down the volume on this next release. He never knew it had volume control on it after years of using it.

Tongues In Knots

YES BOSS have teamed up with the singer from Forward Russia to release an indie dance grime crossover called Tongues In Knots.

Leeds's own hit parade shakers return with what is their 3rd album...by which I mean this is the third time they have recorded an album. There first album had some alright pop songs on it. The second one wasn't as good (according to my man on the inside). This album is a kind of progression for the lads. A lot of the new songs seem to have been ...view item »

Grammatics
Double Negative

Grammatics are one of those rather perplexing Leeds bands that merge studious math inflected indie with flailing dramatic anthemic pop in an effort to create something original. I'm just suffering an unholy combination of something like Foals & Keane for my troubles. I think they're obviously a talented bunch, 'Double Negative' possesses some b...view item »

Shadow Committee/ Time Capsules & The Greater Truth

Dance To The Radio chuck a new single at us this week by Grammatics. I can't remember what their previous singles were like but being as though I can't remember what I ate for lunch that's no big surprise. 'Shadow Committee' is a weird single... It seems reasonably normal before it goes into a weird System of A Down esque chorus albeit a bit more i...view item »

Grammatics

The debut from Grammatics is a very good start.

And swiftly on to 'The Vague Archive' which is the latest offering from Grammatics on Dance To The Radio. It's an up tempo fairly polished pop tune that really shifts in dynamics with horns and big powerful chorus with loads going on. It's quite a fast tune in terms of the tempo but it breaks down into a gentler more reflective mode.The way the son...view item »

Rather than write anything serious about the new Pigeon Detectives 'This Is An Emergency Single' I've opted to imagine a one legged pigeon that is a detective like sherlock holmes wearing a deerstalker and monicle investigating the stabbing of a pigeon by another pigeon over a dispute over a piece of bread.
