Some nice words on the new Roman Lakes….

Originally posted on Killer Ponytail:

roman lakes the sparrowWhat do think of when you think of Manchester? The big, baggy beats of the likes of Happy Mondays and the heady indie dance of the Hacienda club, right? Well, prepare to cast those stereotypes aside because Manchester’s Roman Lakes has something entirely more serene to offer.

Roman Lakes, aka Ben Hyman, serves as a counter to the swaggering lad-orientated rock made famous by the north of England and delivers a more cerebral take on the world using nothing more than his voice and a well worn guitalele (that’s a cross between a guitar and a ukulele by the way).

Hyman’s new track ‘The Sparrow’ (released on the ever dependable Bleeding Gold Records) showcases his knack for creating a gloriously bouncing melody that can’t help but echo the heyday of the 70s British folk scene, and his vocals take on the straight forward narrative delivery of the likes of The Tallest Man On…

Sweet Indie-Pop from Field Trips Collective: Kooties- ‘Yearbook’ EP Review

some nice stuff on KOOTIES…

‘Cooties’ were once known as something you didn’t want to have as a child. The fictional disease and embarrassment that went hand in hand with love affairs as a child. The same feeling paired with light-heartedness comes from the San Diego band Kooties, an indie-pop and “kiwi” band that came together from the guitarist of Space Heat, and Field Trips collective co-founder, Ren Rogers. Living up to their self-proclaimed genre of sweet “kiwi” pop, their debut album, Yearbook, combines surf-pop, light melodies, and a feel good aura that can be pressed as a soundtrack for a sunny day, and would be the only type of ‘cooties’ you want to ever have.

If unfamiliar with Field Trips Collective, they are a self-started label in San Diego, which contain various SD artists within the same musical genre scheme, and some rotating members within different projects. Frank Mindingall (bass), Skylar…

Apache Viking were hatched circa 2009 from members of Newcastle based band Free Diamonds (signed to Deep Elm records in the US), US act Foresake Ya to the Snakes, and the famed Newcastle country band The Devitos.

This unlikely coalition is a jigsaw of pop punk, cartoon lyricism, Russian polka and mid 50’s lo-fi. Instantly Apache Viking were quoted as the best band in Newcastle upon Tyne and ones to watch by BBC 6 music (who have dedicated airplay on many occasions).
