Post-punk rock group Devo who, formed in the early seventies, make music comparable to Pixies and Sonic Youth but with a weird sci-fi twist.
Devo tour dates
Formed out of the ashes of the sadly missed Spacemen 3. Spiritualized have consistently made music that epitomises the phrase 'Junkie Cool'. Amazing songs about life, death, love, sex, drugs and the big guy upstairs.
Live they are incredible and could have anything from a small horn section to a full orchestra to back them up, and a pretty cool light show too.
Spiritualized tour dates
Zach Condon begin releasing albums at the tender age of fifteen under the names of Real People and 1971. Now settled as Beirut, Zach and his band layer eastern European instrumentals with American folk sensibilities, topped off with Zach's bitter-sweet vocals, reminiscent of such heroes as Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley.
Beirut tour dates
The seminal Chicago alt-rock band reunite and return in 2009. A contemporary of like-minded acts such as Fugazi, Helmet, the Melvins and Nirvana, the Jesus Lizard are revered for their visceral noise-rock attack, driven by Yow's unhinged persona.
The Jesus Lizard tour dates
Legendary stoner rock band Sleep split in 1998 after two hugely influential albums and members went on to form underground heroes High On Fire and Om. They reunited in 2009 and have been performing again ever since.
Sleep tour dates
A duo from Antibes, France who perform live as a fearsome four-piece. 'A perfect gene-splice between Joy Division's sombre somnambulant throb and the ballooning-pupil dynamics of My Bloody Valentine.' (NME)
M83 tour dates
With a reputation forged in fire, brimstone and magic, Killing Joke have long been one of rock's most iconic & influential outfits. They returned in 2008 with their original line-up of Jaz Coleman (vocals and keyboards), Geordie (guitar) and Youth (bass) and Paul Ferguson (drums) and continue to tour and record.
Killing Joke tour dates
This post-punk outift formed in 1978 in Cardiff. The trio's music was constructed around the powerful and minimal instrumentation of brothers Philip and Stuart Moxham on bass and guitar, supporting the naive untrained vocals of Alison Statton. The band split in 1980 but reunited in 2007 and have been playing some rare live shows ever since. The original drum machine parts are now played on electronic drums by third Moxham brother Andrew.
Young Marble Giants tour dates
'Anti-Pop Consortium have long sought to push the conventions of hip-hop, poetry and any other genre you care to mention. Melding sonic experimentation with elaborate lyricism, Beans, High priest, M Sayyid and producer Earl Blaize tease the ghost back into the shell of pop's shattered carapace' (Mean Fiddler).
Anti-Pop Consortium tour dates
Health's brutal diversity is at the forefront of LA's burgeoning experimental scene. Health's notoriety centred around LA's The Smell venue where more often than not they played free all-ages shows to those eager to lose themselves in the band's volatile experimental noise.
Health tour dates
Shearwater is an American indie rock band formed in Austin, Texas in 1999 led by multi-instrumentalist and lead singer Jonathan Meiburg. Singer Jesca Hoop, a solo artist in her own right, is also a band member. They have released a string of albums on various labels including most notably through Matador and Sub Pop.
Shearwater tour dates
Seattle’s Cave Singers never listened to much folk music, they never intended to play folk music, and more importantly, their guitarist never picked up the instrument until recently. Yet, this strange trio is writing and performing some of the most hypnotizing folk music we have today. Live, the Cave Singers are a band who many critics acclaim as unmissable.
The Cave Singers tour dates
A singer/songwriter and guitarist from New York with influences that include Hella, Lightning Bolt, Deerhoof, Erase Errata, Don Caballero, U.S. Maple, Royal Trux, Television, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, and Talking Heads.
Marnie Stern tour dates
Sleepy Sun is an apt title for this young San Francisco band, as their debut record, 'Embrace', proved to be one of those rare slabs of rock and roll that will wake you up in the morning, and send you off to sleep at night. After honing their craft in the occult influenced creative community of Santa Cruz, the band has continued to grow, both creatively and in their loyal following, since their relocation to the city by the bay. With their throbbing rhythm section, swirling sea of guitars, and dreamy, haunting duet vocals, the word dynamic is a severe understatement.
Sleepy Sun tour dates
Lush Canadian folk-pop for fans of Sufjan Stevens and Midlake. 'Nods to fellow countrymen Arcade Fire and nu-folk sensations Fleet Foxes. From this Acorn, mighty oaks will grow' -The Sun.
The Acorn tour dates
Two minute pop songs run into psychedelic improvisations and drum-n-bass-heavy dub. Members Alan Sparhawk and Steve Garrington are also in the band Low.
Retribution Gospel Choir tour dates
Grails are an instrumental quintet from Portland, Oregon playing music in the style of Mogwai, Dirty Three etc.

Pink Mountaintops tour dates
School of Seven Bells formed nearly six years ago as a trio: vocalist Alejandra Deheza, guitarist/producer Benjamin Curtis, and ex-vocalist/synth player Claudia Deheza. Their debut album, Alpinisms, hit streets via Ghostly International in 2008 and garnered much attention for the band's eclectic mix of introspective rock and poppy electronic tones. In the years to follow, the trio released the critically acclaimed sophomore album, Disconnect From Desire and toured both domestically and internationally with the likes of Interpol, Blonde Redhead, and label-mates Active Child to name a few. Now a duo, Alejandra Deheza and Benjamin Curtis have evolved their sound on thrid album 'Ghostory'.
