Two new(-ish) bands for you to get your teeth into this time. Wine Moms are totally new to us and sound pretty damn far up our street. We’ve been aware of Thank a little while, but reckon they still count as new(-ish), but they’re really maturing well.
We open, however, with the mighty Benefits. We saw them supporting I Like Trains recently and the live experience did not disappoint. Do catch them on their headline dates coming up. Other highlights are Claude Cooper – an assault on the senses covering psych-funk, trip-hop and jazz – a new Home Counties track, retro vibes from The Senior Service and more from the prolific Conscious Route.
