I've noticed that my blog seems to be very much music and technology related; that's good, right? I'm happy with that anyway, inter-dispersed with personal ramblings. Content.
So, what are you up to tomorrow night? If there's nothing to do, why not come to Manchester and attend Bring on the Dancing Horses. Headlining the night are Liverpool trio Elle S'Appelle who I've mentioned prior to this post and have been getting a lot of attention over the past few months - great news, since they were only formed in January 2007. Support from My Amiga.
Entry to Dancing Horses is £4, or cheaper if you're a student / have a flyer / OAP (really?!) or go by the name Dave Haslam.
Venturing further down south and Alcopop! (one of my favourite labels) are releasing Sam Isaac's debut single 'Sideways' in conjunction with Big Scary Monsters Records. Sam Isaac is another name that's getting a lot of attention of late and it's really refreshing to see a 'popstar' that's not been churned out by a record label and has found his way like any other band has done.
Alcopop! have also announced their 'Jingle Bells, Single Sale' which is basically a 'buy one, get one free' offer on their singles collection. If I didn't own all the releases already, I'd take advantage of this myself.
You can find their shop here, and also a link to their blog in the newly added 'Blogroll: Music' panel on this page - along with some other blogs you should check out.
This week I bought two signed copies of 'Free Love' - the debut single by Cage the Elephant. I found the band through In The City 2007 and love their music and style; it reminds me somewhat of Kings of Leon mixed with Louis XIV. The band are a five-piece signed to Relentless Records and have recently moved from Kentucky (USA) to London (UK) and have a few shows around the country. Check out their MySpace where you can hear their single, or buy it for £1.99 from recordstore.co.uk
Finally, here's a track for you to download - it's by a band called Fourteen Corners. These guys are from the Yorkshire-area and (from what I've seen) are a nice live band and all-round good guys. They would love to hear off you if you're a promoter or label in the UK. You can get in touch via their MySpace, which is also where you can hear more of their music.
Amazing. I've wrote an informative blog post where I had a photo taken by myself to relate to each bit of content. I'm getting good at this blogging thing - how many years did it take?
