BG107 | Swoon

Oh well goodbye - Tom Rees - Colour

Hailing from Liverpool England, Oh Well Goodbye quietly crept into the UK scene with debut cassette release ‘BG092’ through U.S label Bleeding Gold Records. Beginning as a solo project during down time of his ‘dayjob’ band People//Talk, Philip Rourke (founder of EDILS records/booking)  quickly assembled like minded musicians  and played a scattering of shows in London and northern England, as well as a 5 date tour of France in late 2015.  Oh Well Goodbye, completed by Sam Banks (bass), Peter Seddon (Guitar) and Andy Fernihough (Drums) have continued to push creatively as a unit while fully maintaining their Lo-Fi DIY approach. Three new EPs will be released before the end of 2017 and each one presents a progressive step showcasing Oh Well Goodbye’s bittersweet musical movements that border the edge of collapse. Post punk is murky ground but Oh Well Goodbye given their northern English heritage slot in and out easily. A lush mix of early 90’s styled guitars, dance punk beats and hushed, almost spoken vocal ride along effortlessly. As beautiful as it is ugly, the nonchalant display masks the chaos and vulnerability underneath.
The first release of the trilogy is a four track EP entitled  ‘Swoon’. A step up from the home recording of Rourke’s debut effort,  ‘Swoon’ was recorded in a Liverpool studio live by the bands drummer Andy Fernihough.  ‘Swoon’ is available on pink and grey 7” as well as digitally from September 16th through Bleeding Gold Records. The band’s next release quickly follows and will coincide with a European tour in October. A five track cassette entitled ‘Acquiescence’  is a co-release between UK labels Hail Hail and EDILS Records (digitally through Bleeding Gold Records) will be available from October 16th. A more experimental and ambient collection compared to its predecessor, ‘Acquiescence’ sees Oh Well Goodbye use drums loops and keyboards for the first time on half of the tracks while still in touching upon the band’s pop sensibilities and downbeat ‘post-punk’ sound.  This  leads nicely into the final release of the trilogy; ‘I Know, I Know, I Know’ which is a remix EP comprised of tracks from both ‘Swoon’ and ‘Acquiescence’. Hitting the world wide web on November 11th, again through Bleeding Gold Records the digital only release features remixes by a host of acts including Dignan Porch (Faux Discx/Captured Tracks), Gorgeous Bully (Art Is Hard), Moonlit Sailor (Deep Elm) and new comers such as Dayflower and Grave Diggers Union.

BG102 ROSE CHARIOTEyes Just Follow/Lenkille” digital single

Rose Chariot is the moniker of 26-year-old Mancunian producer/musician Ross Marriott. His new material – recorded between Manchester and Lisbon – is colourful, dramatic and dense, drawing from influences such as Jai Paul, The Cardigans, Grimes, Foals, Prince, Björk and Interpol.

“Last year I moved to Lisbon, Portugal, where I was based for a year,” explains Ross. “It was a really interesting time; I got mugged twice, ended up in hospital, and also met some really fascinating people. With the new songs, I tried to capture the feeling of living in a new place where everything’s exciting, raw and mysterious. It was a huge contrast to the ‘coldness’ of England, so I tried to
use that as my inspiration.”

BG092 | Oh Well, Goodbye

OWG_WEB2

We’ve got a rad new 5-track EP from UK-based Oh Well, Goodbye.

For its simplistic approach,  ‘BG092′ is a cathartic collection of songs…a deep, embittered tone runs throughout, as beautiful as it is ugly. At times the nonchalant display masks the chaos and vulnerability underneath.

Download the EP here and snap an ultra-limited cassette tape from Hail Hail Records in the UK here.

Also, we have a new distributor-partner in the US and they have some of the Bleeding Gold releases on the cheap included in their already-large-and-growing stock of small indie label 7″s and 10″s! Check out Yawn Records here.

BG089 | MAGIC DUDES

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 8, 2015 by bleedinggold

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).

Aunt Sis started as the bedroom recording project of Justin Morris, utilizing live vocal looping and melodic guitar progressions to imply something larger. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, Aunt Sis now continues this aesthetic as an amplified three piece, with fellow Bleeding Gold members Will Flaugher of Petey, and Justin Hrabovsky of The Sweets.

People//Talk formed in a pub in January of 2012 under the original name of So Sexual.

What started out as a few friends who had previously played in bands together thinking that maybe it’d be fun to write a bunch of songs and play a gig (which they did in the space of the first month), has 2 years later proven to have a little more longevity than any of them might have anticipated.

Within that time frame the band now known as People//Talk has developed their own distinct identity, drawing upon elements of post/punk and new wave whilst delivering a contemporary, accessible sound.

For those who are already familiar with and enjoyed the bands previous works as ‘So Sexual’ you will be pleased to find that a change of name doesn’t mean a departure from the overall sound.

Interview: Furrow

James from Killer Ponytail had a chat with FURROW…

Killer Ponytail

Furrow_2Furrow are two guys from a small village called West Felton just on the English/Welsh border. But don’t let their bucolic background fool you. Furrow create gnarly, super lo-fi noise pop capable of reigniting any flagging house party. Between Richard Cartwright’s pounding rhythms and Thom Snell’s shredded bass sound, Furrow also manage to infuse their songs with plenty of melodic verve and enough catchy hooks to give the likes of No Age a run for their money. We caught up with Rich and Thom to talk about playing in caravans, forging new comedy musical genres and their forthcoming album.

How did you guys first start making music together? 

Thom: We come from this little place called West Felton, and we both ended up back there after university. We were hanging around, looking for jobs and listening to lots of No Age.

Rich: Yeah, we were thinking about what No Age were doing and…

MOSES GOLD :: Powder and Blood (Official Video)

If ‘enchantingly bleak’ was a thing, then we’d probably select Moses Gold as it’s most pre-eminent exponent. He is very much an artist worth getting to know.” -The 405

BG070 | Paradise Lost

Moses Gold, Salford 12/10/12

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.
