Killing Moon Limited, Euphonios, The Recommender and Strongroom Alive are teaming up to put on this superb bill of new music at this year’s Great Escape festival, which takes place in Brighton from 10-12 May.
This particular event takes place at Life on Friday 11 May, and is free entry all day long. Alongside Bluebell, we’ve kindly been invited to spin some records in between the bands. As the lineup features some of our very favourite artists of the moment, some of whom have featured on this blog and/or appeared live at an LFC event, we would have been mad to have turned down the opportunity.
If you’re down by the seaside for the festival, pop along and say hello. We’ll be the ones with the iPod and mix CDs in hand, and (probably) playing tracks from our label catalogue.
Today is the release date for The Chaotic Good’s all original track, ‘Don’t Stay Home.’ The track is released on Dirty Fabric Digital and is available for purchase on Beatport here.

Oxford’s earnest indie rockers Spring Offensive released a video this Saturday just gone for their new single “Worry Fill My Heart”.
Musically, we’re deciphering bits of Wild Beasts, Bombay Bicycle Club and fellow Oxfordites Foals in the jerky, stop-start guitars, and vocalist Lucas Whitworth’s confessional lyrics about having a shit job and not being able to stump up the rent (“I asked no one for the life I’m leading”; “I’m counting down the seconds until my shift is up”), as well as an allusion to the frightening inevitability of it all (“How dare I even think I could be any exception”), recall the likes of The Rakes and Hard-Fi, two bands who famously popularised songs about life’s banalities.
It’s an intense and captivating four minutes or so, that will certainly resonate with many of the current recession experiencing generation who might be seeking a creative outlet in the arts, and have yet to make it pay. In that sense – full marks for this lot for quite simply telling it how it is, a trait that, alongside their hard working nature, will help to build upon their already devoted fan base.
If you’d like to hear their tales of urban woe in a live setting, they’ll be on tour around the UK from the 29th March til 5th April. A short stint of German dates follows directly after. Be sure to pick up the “Worry Fill My Heart” single from iTunes too, which also includes B-side “Carrier” (below).

Sydney / Blue Mountains based The Maple Trail is the project of Aidan Roberts, who’s been writing and recording under this particular guise for a good few years it seems – TMT’s just released album, “Cable Mount Warning”, is the outfit’s third.
Much like fellow Aussies The Sleepy Jackson, for example, the dynamic in the group appears to be one with Roberts very much at its helm, playing most instruments on the recordings (everything from vocals to celtic drums to wine glasses, he declares) and appearing as a solitary figure in the press shots, with other musicians dipping in and out and contributing various parts on certain tracks.
We came across the band very recently, and one track off the aforementioned album, “Highwire”, jumped up like a high speed bowling delivery that pitches on a bit of rough, before hitting us hard on the proverbial helmet.
Roberts has cited Bryter Later by the late Nick Drake as an inspiration, and there’s certainly something of him here in this slice of dreamy, summery and uplifting folk, and we can also hear bits of more contemporary artists such as Kings Of Convenience, Bon Iver and Broken Social Scene – the horns that kick in initially on 00:37 (before coming back triumphantly later) take us back to the BSS’ glorious 7/4 Shoreline. If it’s up your alley, check out the rest of the album here.
