When the muse comes a calling they say there's no stopping her inspiration; just ask songwriter/musician Andrew Norquay

After years away from music due to commitments as a commercial diver, the creative roar within Andrew has erupted, bringing a new energy and adventure for his alt rock sound.

Brian's favourite video this week is Ghosting by Edinburgh band Wozniak which is taken from their critically acclaimed Colour Reels album released in April last year.

Wozniak purvey atmospheric shoe-gaze of the highest quality and that's evident in this latest offering from the album. Go seek it out.










No 10: Granfalloon


Granfalloon
Granfalloon is the musical moniker of Richard Lomax and his folktronica group based in Manchester. Folktronica is a mixture of folk and electronica. Instruments include Omnichords, acoustic guitars, Casio keyboards, and 80's drum machines. 

It's a delightfully laid back slice of addictive lo-fi electronic goodness which is lyrically both poignant and amusing. Brian will be spinning Ambulance on the Radio KC Indie Show on Sunday 4th of February so tune in!
