Grace Lightman
Fangs

The Handsome Dad roster are a tight-knit bunch. If you currently (13/07/17) go to the YouTube video for Grace Lightman’s ‘Fangs’, the top comment comes from label-mates Jerkcurb and reads ‘really good’. And you know what, they’re right - ‘Fangs&rsqu...view item »


Irma Vep
Evil / Holiday

Handsome Dad Records (The Big Moon, Babeheaven) provide the latest pitstop for prolific home-taper Irma Vep. This two-track single is another piece of Welsh psych-pop du jour from one of the best exponents of the style currently working. Cate Le...view item »


A House In The Trees
What Am I Supposed To Do EP

The label is actually literally sincerely called Handsome Dad Records and they're putting out this EP from A House In the Trees, a band who make dance music. The audacity. Using textures ambient and structures pop, they come up with something of a Portishead c...view item »


Aldous RH
Feelin' Blue

Once of Mancunian groove-botherers Egyptian Hip-Hop, Aldous RH’s recent solo offerings have veered closer to Mac DeMarco-esque alt-croonerism. It’s a good look for him, particularly when he can write songs as charming as ‘Feelin’ Blue’. This one’s out on ...view item »

Babeheaven
Your Love / It’s Not Easy

Returning to Handsome Dad Records for their third single Your Love. A downbeat near-acoustic Portishead esque pop track soaked in candlelight soul. The London based five-piece brought in Queens rapper Deem Spencer for a verse. Very close, very personal, Your Love is a bitter-sweet song of love ...view item »

Babeheaven
Moving On

A nice one of those tiny records from the sort of hilariously named Babeheaven, whose summer jamz tend to revolve around a nice top layer of fuzz to make noise between the shyly mumbled conversations. Alt-pop at its most homely and kindly, this one follows up their debut Heaven on Handsome Dad. Shoutout t...view item »

Glad Hand
Shape Your Fever Close

Glad Hand work in the vein of other Leeds luminaries Adult Jazz, Wild Beasts and Makeness here (the latter actually turns his hands to remix duties on the b-side). ‘Shape Your Fever Close’ has both tenderness and bite to it, with a beautifully androgynous vocal cresting on an oft-dis...view item »

Bruce O Yates
Homer

Recorded live with Yates’ band The Homos, he takes the helm for his solo debut. A laid back bluesy rock and roll affair where he draws comparisons between Homer’s Odyssey and the standard “My baby left me” heartbreak blues and rock themes. Taking an outsider approach he plays through multiple styles, from...view item »

Aldous RH
Sensuality

Aldous RH is a Manchester bloke who is obviously in love with the sweet moving sweet grooving sounds of the soulful 1970s. 'Sensuality' is a quite surprisingly hi-fi slice of funk with a voice that sounds like Alexis Taylor trying to be Prince over the kind of sexy groove that would sound just p...view item »

Jerkcurb
Night On Earth

Jerkcurb (really odd name isn't it?) is a London bloke who is pals with King Krule amongst other people and there's something of King Krule's late night twangy atmospheres in these hazy compositions but mostly it reminds me of Chris Isaak having drunk himself to sleep in the midday sun, drooling...view item »

Makeness
14 Drops / Acid Dad

After making an appearance on the bill of Jungle's edition of The Warehouse Project back in December, Makeness steps up to the controls with his second 12" of techno tinged jams, mixing in hints of brass, acid and flippity floppity grooves to form a vibrant but totally danceable collection of sounds....view item »

Babeheaven
Heaven / Friday Sky

Heaven/Friday Sky on vinyl 7” contains more gorgeous vocals and downbeat instrumentation from London five-piece Babeheaven. The group make a sultry and experimental dream pop that also borrows expansive reverb and studio trickery from dub recording techniques. Lovely stuff from Handsome Dad Records...view item »

Makeness
Rogue EP

Kyle Molleson’s (Glad Hand) latest moniker Makeness is set out to give you four tracks of analogue warmth to shuffle along to. The opening track Rogue follows a similar lush vein to Moderat or Jon Hopkins productions with a steadily progressing gr...view item »

The Big Moon
The Road

After their debut single, Sucker, went down a storm, London four-piece The Big Moon unleash The Road. It is another slice of self produced, guitar drenched, cinematic indie rock that is equal parts thrilling and darkly intense. The single was mixed by friend of the band and member of Spring King...view item »

Spring King
They’re Coming After You EP

It’s post punk from Spring King; They’re Coming After You is energetic, discontented and comes with some good ol’ bass guitar keeping things very much down to earth in sodden Dr Martens. Expect rampant guitar riffs, crashing cymbals and shouty vocals, in summary, a good time. It’s also wo...view item »
