LISTEN TO LAST WEEK'S TOP 10 HERE
AS PLAYED ON RADIO KC - 12.3.17
RALPH'S BRAND NEW TOP 10 CHART
PUBLISHED - 11.3.17
No 1: Snippet
Today's post focuses on the quintessentially English songwriting of Johnno Casson who performs under the pseudonym of Snippet.
April 7th will see the release of his new album Future Melancholy Pop Music and the title sees the contents doing exactly what it says on the tin. It's 15 tracks of reflective, retrospective, introspective, captivating, engaging, satirical, funky and just plain compulsive lo-fi listening pleasure.
No 2: The Farm
The Farm are using Pledgemusic to release 3 brand new songs plus a re-mix of Feel The Love, all signed by the band, as well as the new EP being part of some extremely groovy merchandise bundles.
Founding member Peter Hooton said - "We're releasing this music now because we've been playing festivals for a few years and everyone we meet always asks the same question, 'When are you releasing new material'."
No 3: Cold Summer
This year kicks off with Cold Summer releasing Waiting as a single in advance of their first live shows of the year. It's a tried and tested fans favourite that grabs you by the nuts from the first riff and doesn't let go until the frantic chant at the end. They're building a bridge between Alt Rock and Post Hardcore/Punk fans with this one. All things to all rockers.
Needless to say Ralph's giving it a spin on the Radio KC Indie Show in the near (Sunday 5th March) future.
No 4: Floodhounds
No 5: Ian Roland & Simon Yapp
On Ralph's Radio KC Indie Show next Sunday (March 5th) we'll be featuring a few a few Americana styled tracks so it was very timeous when Day Became You, the new EP from Ian Roland & Simon Yapp was dropped off via the good offices of the postal service.
No 6: JUXTA
If you like your post punk downright dystopian and delightfully dirty (alliteration is my muse) then have I got the album for you.
Welcome To Your Life is the long awaited second album from JUXTA, one of the most important bands on the indie scene right now.
No 7: Scott Lloyd
The In The Garden EP will be the sixth Scott Lloyd release to date and covers insightful themes such as getting older, childhood, mental health and loss. Normally a solo performer, Scott has used a full band to back him on the EP, which is a step away from his previous acoustic sound. The EP was recorded at Limefield Studios, Manchester in July 2016 and will be released independently by Scott.
No 8: Sam Jefferson
No 9: Syd.31
Self-styled angriest band in the UK Syd.31 have pronounced that they're taking rage to a level rarely heard before.
With two successful EPs and a single behind them, they are attempting to redefine what it means to be a band as society rips itself apart - music with purpose and impact. Imagine Slayer joining forces with Die Antwoord, or the bastard love child of Grace Jones and the late lamented Sid Vicious fronting Atari Teenage Riot.
No 10: Graham Marshall
It's fair to say we're fans of Graham Marshall here in the kennel, not only due to his infectious glass-gargling voice but also due to the tenacity of the man in what is for many, a long and difficult path to achieve anything close to recognition, never mind fame and fortune.
Ralph will be giving a track from Mr Complicated a spin soon on the Radio KC Indie Show so make sure you tune in every Sunday from 5-7pm GMT on rkc.noip.me. and hopefully we'll see Graham Marshall hitting the road soon and not just in his 40' ASDA delivery truck.
