Cult Party
And Then There Was This Sound

Sad hits for all the family (lest there are happy members of it), it's the brand new record by not-at-all-super stars Cult Party! This wonderful band may have been a solitary, self-preserving bedroom band once upon a time, but on And Then There Was This Sound songwriter Leo Robinson opens up his sounds with the help of pals including weirdo rocker Kiran Leonard. Creative and wayward without sacrificing the delicate and skeletal sound of old, this record is bound to be special.

Dinner Party
Too Live To Die

Dinner Party are a fuzz-rock band from Manchester. The Three Piece are made up from members of other Manchester bands such as Former Bullies, Irma Vep and Sex Hands. Too Live To Die is their second album and follow-up to their debut, Swinging. Fans of their debut will need no further encouragement to buy this, but newcomers can think of this as a welcome winter warmer. Vinyl LP on Icecapades.

Sprinters
Sprinters

Sprinters to all intents and purposes are Wigan's answer to Real Estate. Now based in marginally more fashionable Manchester, the group play a high octane form of janglesome indie pop which suggests that Wigan is the sunniest place on earth. If on the Manchester scene Horsebeach bring the murk and sad then Sprinters are a little bit more jolly. 

Vertical Slump
Ruined Value

Vertical Slump are post-punk four piece whose members have been in bands such as Shopping, Gloss Rejection, Omi Palone and Circuit Breaker. Ruined Value is a confident and vigorous 4-track EP which was produced by Mark Jasper. Part sweet and melodic, part dark and discordant with stabbing guitars, squealing amps, minimal percussion and thundering bass.

Thalassocracy
Graves

This is the debut 7” single by three piece Thalassocracy, featuring Art Is Hard records’ own Richard Walsh (vocals and guitar), Slothboat music blogger Lloyd King (bass guitar) and Playlounge’s Sam Watkins (drums). ‘Graves’ is a low fi, melodic pop song played through muddy guitars, carried along by laid back vocals and plenty of hooks.
