The only tunes you wanna listen to over this the festive period...

Mannequin - Bones
Grungy metallers make an appropriately moody video featuring a man doing something that we’ve all wanted to do at some point: flinging himself naked around a forest.

The Lizzards - Houdini
If you thought all modern-day psych music was sunglasses, leather jackets and an expensive sniff sniff habit, then give these Notts/Brum lads some ear-time for a refreshingly punchy take on the genre.

Joseph Knight - Hold On To Me
You know Joseph Knight wants to be taken as a totally serious artist because in the music video to accompany this track, he does a lot of standing around on a cliff top looking wistfully in to the distance.

April Towers - Get Recovered
Latest video from the electro knob-twiddlers celebrating their recent tour around the UK with footage from their gig at the Koko in somewhere called London, where it looks like they went down a storm. Nice one, lads.

Amber Run - Stranger
Grandiose, epic indie rock that wouldn’t be out of place serenading the masses in a mobile-phone sponsored enormo-dome. A lovely little taster for their sophomore album, out in early 2017.

Komino - Tell Me
It’s like the nineties, noughties and tens never happened with this eighties shoulder-popper that you’d half expect to turn up on one of those Top Of The Pops re-runs on BBC Four.

Massappeals and Snowy - Do’s/Dont’s
Notts grime emcee and hyped producer both go in hard on this on this twitchy, nervy slice of glitchy hip hop. Let’s call it glitch-hop.
