Moses Gold is the creative vision of Manchester’s Phill Young. Formed in 2013 after the dissolution of his previous project, the critically acclaimed Christian AIDS/Stay+, Young re-emerged with some of the most extraordinarily heart-rending and beautiful music that the city has ever heard. Working with producer Ben Pearson (Espher) the wounded baritone of Young’s voice glows against a sparkling electronic backdrop. Vivid and visceral, Young’s expression of loneliness and regret is littered with melancholy and tiny glimpses of hope. Confrontational, but more emotionally than physically, he’s been described as “Ian Curtis trapped in a 21st century nightmare.”

Debut single ‘Paradise Lost’ features a collaboration with former bandmate and friend London based producer Stay Positive (Black Butter, RAMP, OWSLA) Young who has previously spoken with unerring honesty about his  long-term battle with depression, wants to create music people“can relate to and respond to. Not enough singers do that.”  After leaving his previous band it was vital for Young to continue to make music to challenge himself and his audience. Enter Moses Gold, meaning “Prophet of Greed” whose début single ‘Paradise Lost’ is a huge statement of intent and the first step in achieving the ambitious goal Young has set himself “to write an album as beautiful as ‘Kid A’ or as honest as ‘Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space’. ‘Paradise Lost’  is released March 10th on limited edition 12″ vinyl.

BG071 // 10 Feb 2014

Songs For Walter aka Laurie Hulme is back with another slice of folk pop, this time armed with a banjo and a story about his Grandfathers philosophy, communism and constitutional stance about Laurie changing his university course to politics.

The title is from the philosopher: Thomas Hobbe’s ‘Leviathan’ of which Laurie studied during his time at university. Hobbes says that ungoverned man would be constantly at war because of Competition, Diffidence and Glory. This is a comprehensible story about family life and how it can affect your studies, read into it as much as like.

Golden Glow WEB

Golden Glow, the solo project of singer-songwriter Pierre Hall, is set to release a new 6-track EP, ‘Beauty / Duty’ on 27th January via Bleeding Gold Records, with a sound that echoes the laid-back, idyllic melodies of Real Estate and Wild Nothing. After some full band recording sessions with an outside producer, Pierre decided the sound was becoming almost too clinical and lost some of the magic that comes with the limitations of using more basic equipment. Pierre decided to abort the sessions and go back to the four-track, the result being the new 6-track EP, ‘Beauty / Duty’, influenced by Felt, New Order, Arthur Russell, Velvet Underground, The Cure, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

*a lathe-cut is a unique, hand-made MONO product that is supposed to be a collector’s item, and not necessarily made for playing. Although these lathe-cuts are ready to play and will not harm your needle, they may sound fuzzy, dull, pop and hiss, or possibly even skip**.

**if your copy skips, try the ol’ penny-on-the-tonearm trick!!

BG046 | Family Hold Back

Family Hold Back - Artwork

SONGS FOR WALTER   //   FREE DOWNLOAD

Family sayings stick to the memory like glue. No matter how much you try to shake them for fear of turning into your parents, time-worn words of wisdom come flooding back should the right situation present itself. No stranger to this is Songs For Walter – to date each song has emerged as a musical narrative with family life at its heart, and new single Family Hold Back is no exception.


“’Family Hold Back’ was something Mum used to say,” recalls Songs For Walter alter-personality Laurie Hulme. “It was something her parents told her, then she told my brother and I at social occasions to stop us from gorging ourselves in front of others at buffets!”

On the surface it would seem that motherly advice has been taken. Lighter-than-air vocals reminiscent of Mercury Rev’s ethereal tones flow alongside an infectious ukulele melody and four to floor bass drum making it not only recall the stripped-back, traditional sound of Songs For Walter’s self-titled debut EP, but also the epitome of Englishness in its truest sense – amenable, considered, and always polite.

But don’t be fooled, for Songs For Walter has always been a master of trickery presenting everyday scenarios that represent far deeper lying issues – here a seemingly innocent party spread masquerades as a deliberately misleading yet astute commentary on social etiquette, over-indulgence and addiction.

“I’m just hoping i can find some kind of balance,” sings Hulme at the end of the song. Whatever that balance is, there’s no doubting that Family Hold Back is Songs For Walter at its most accomplished sounding yet.

His last singles ‘Tougher Than A Soldier’s Boots’ and ‘Moon / Two Out Of Ten’ gained multiple radio plays by Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Tom Ravenscroft. Having spent the last 8 months furiously bringing his last single and debut EP to life with numerous live performances around the country and relishing a work ethic just as strong, Songs For Walter’s Laurie Hulme has been a busy man.

Building a momentum to release a free single each month up until Summer 2013, in which a lovely piece of vinyl will be released documenting this amazing story of ‘Songs For Walter’.

“The lead single is a piece of synth heavy indie pop majesty which is really driven forward by the excellent vocals, the track also has a good retro feel to it without trying to sound like anything else.  B-Side Santa Clara is a mellower affair and its looping synths really keep you engaged in the track throughout to make up a really good tune.”  -Impropaganda
