Do you like indie music? Young is about as indie sounding as you can get, if you ask me, and rides on an ecstatic rhythm that makes the whole thing amazingly upbeat. From the South Wales Valleys, Bedface, all six of them, will be at Merthyr Rising at the end of this month. Enough time to listen through their self-titled album over on Spotify.
Everyone will know what antipodal means by the end of this show as we bring in artists from Wales, the US and Australia. There’s a few things going down in the label too, so amongst the synth pop and indie from Michael Butera, Bedface and Kyven you can catch up on all the latest developments around the network.
This could easily stand up in the top ten. Includes a compelling lyric, silky modern electronics and a chorus hookier than a rose bush thanks to solo artist Michael Butera - now back in his native Australia after spending time in the US and Canada. One Last Round came this February gone but already an EP is coming in the next month or two, with an album in the pipes. No resting here! And he has his sights on the UK...
Deep in the annals of ADSRecords history there is a legend. Back when the earth was molten and our label was still forming from primordial goo, there was a founding artist called Talisay Nights. He is said to have released a serene collection of songs, with honeyed baritone vocals and reassuring pianos. Now the Music Past Midnight EP has been found! - and will be released publicly 24th May.
Beautifully uplifting synth pop from New York. The whole thing soars. If you’re hungry for more, they released their Christmas In New York in December and a dance mix of Falling Glass is also up for the hearing. Kyven, formed of Kyle and Steven, are also working on a duet. We don’t know where, we don’t know when, but we have a good idea where you’ll find out.
Shorts And Shades
The High Points are embarking on their May tour, which they have lovingly named the Short And Shades Tour (so you know what you need to bring). Events will take place across the country, from York to Bristol to London to Norwich. A little something to keep you funked up until their LP and second tour later this year, though they told us not to tell you yet.
