Some are weird as hell, some require email sign-ups, some your first-born, but they´re all free and they´ve all got guitars in and that´s the main thing. Maybe you´ll find something you like…
If You Only Pick One…
Japanese Voyeurs - Dumb (opens in new tab)
HOLY CRAP, what happened to these kids in school? Delightfully-demented grunge-revivalists Japanese Voyeurs sound like Hole should have.
Get The Rest…
Young Guns -Winter Kiss (opens in new tab)
Chunky guitars, echoing pianos and all round epicness (it´s a word!) from High Wycombe´s hottest new alt-rockers. Keep an eye out for a forthcoming Hot Band feature in TG.
Year Long Disaster - Show Me Your Teeth (opens in new tab)
YLD like to make scuzz-rock with a classic edge. Rolling, deep drums lay down solid foundations for guitarist/vocalist Daniel Davies to riff over.
Swanton Bombs - Calm Down (opens in new tab)
Got drums? Check. Got geetars? Check. Now make some bright and noisey art-rock that we can all throw ourselves around the living room to.
Thomas White - The Last Blast (opens in new tab)
White blends elements of ska, garage-rock and electro to create something that bares a marked aural resemblance to a haunted roller-coaster ride.
Tindersticks - Black Smoke (opens in new tab)
Here´s a bit of country/folk-tinged rock ‘n´ roll from Nottingham indie legends Tindersticks. They´ve got a lovely 'Stones-esque twanging lead guitar tone and some awesome percussion work on this one.
Lucky Soul - Coming Of Age (opens in new tab)
just need a bit of bouncy, orchestral indie-pop to flounce about the garden to like a fatter, hairier Kate Bush.
