We’re excited to announce that we’ll be once again co-hosting a stall (with Killing Moon) at the Christmas edition of Independent Label Market, which is taking place at Old Spitalfields Market on Saturday 30 November (from 11:00 to 17:00). There are set to be 80 or so other indie labels represented, including the likes of Bella Union, Domino and Young Turks.

This year is set to be different to previous ones; what with London Brewers’ Market joining in on the day, offering up a wide selection of beer from outlets such as Camden Town Brewery, Hackney Brewery and East London Brewing Company.

All our 7″ releases to date will be on sale (LFC001 – LFC005; LFC010), and be sure to stay tuned for news of a special acoustic performance during the day!

Follow @IndieLabelMkt on Twitter for the latest announcements, and you can RSVP to the event on Facebook here.

KHUSHI – “Pilgrim” (MØ cover) + Channel 4 appearance

Here’s KHUSHI putting his own unique spin on MØ’s “Pilgrim” at a session filmed at In The Woods Festival earlier this year (original version).

His debut single “Magpie” has been out for nearly a month now, and was yesterday featured on Channel 4′s Sunday Brunch programme. The track was also added to the show’s Spotify playlist, alongside the likes of Rizzle Kicks, Arcade Fire, The 1975 and Bastille.

LFC010: Magpie by KHUSHI (out 7 October)

We’ve been away for a little while, but would like to think we’re back with a bang – our next release on the label (LFC010) will be the amazing “Magpie” by London-based KHUSHI.

Earning comparisons to artists like The National, Alt-J, Bon Iver and fellow Londoner Sivu with his brooding, emotive and timeless tracks, there’s been a tangible buzz surrounding KHUSHI in the last twelve months or so. As such, we’re over the moon to be putting out his first ever release on Monday 7 October (300 7″ digital). The launch show takes place the following evening, 8 October, at Hoxton Plaza (tickets), and the limited edition clear vinyl can be pre-ordered from here right now.

Check out a new, revised version of the song below, which has just been premiered by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and also over at This Is Fake DIY.

Introducing: In Their Thousands

Back in the summer of 2010, we hosted a record release show for Ice Black Birds at the now defunct Flowerpot venue in Kentish Town to mark the first ever single on LFC Records. Supporting them that night was a plucky singer-songwriter with a big voice and bags of potential called Declan McClafferty, who since then, we’ve recently learned, has relocated to Donegal in his native Northern Ireland, and formed a rock band called In Their Thousands.

The results are no less than impressive, and indeed, since their inception in mid-2011, ITT seem to have caused quite a stir in that part of the world, picking up plaudits from Hot Press and RTE 2fm (essentially their equivalents of NME and Radio 1) – something that culminated in them winning a Guinness sponsored competition back in November declaring them as the best unsigned band in Ireland, after a showdown at Dublin’s well-known Whelan’s venue.

They’ve also recently recorded a 4-track EP (“Cellars”) with Villagers and Cathy Davey producer Tommy McLaughlin, which acts as a great introduction to their big sounding, rich “alternative folk rock”.

McClafferty’s well honed, gritty vocals are a highlight, and when flanked by some rousing harmonies and a big chorus, it’s a powerful alchemy. “War Of Our Worlds”, in particular, is an exercise in clinical, FM-friendly indie rock, and is one of those songs with the potential to open doors to bigger and better things. “0400″, on the other hand, is a more subtle affair, but packs a similar emotional punch – indicative of a band with more than one trick up their sleeve. More where this came from, please.
