We first discovered Bath five piece Antidotes back in January of last year, with a review of their debut EP 'Adventures Closer To Home'. They return to our sound systems with 'Between Soundwaves', a two-tracker featuring 'Pickups' and 'The Gold Coast'. The band sound altogether much tighter and more mature this time round, with their melodic rock being instantly infectious. EP Download

Ahead of the release of their fifth studio album 'Raven In The Grave', Danish/American duo The Raveonettes return with the first single to be taken from said album in the shape of 'Forget That You're Young'. It's a swirling guitar led pop song, where you can easily get mesmerized by vocalist Sharin Foo with her heavenly tones, coupled with the strangely bleak but up lifting music behind her. The album is released April 5th through Vice Records.

Early last year Robin Grey seemed to open my ears to a genre of music I had previously paid little attention to; Folk. We gave his album 'Strangers With Shoes' a rave review, and have been eagerly awaiting new material since. Therefore it was with great delight when he recently sent us a new track 'Mariam's Cake'. At nearly the six minute mark, Robin has ample space to take the listener on a journey, from the soft and mellow opening, to the energetic ending. Ultimately his greatest weapon is his dynamic voice, which can be quite captivating.
