Fuzz-pop band Joanna Gruesome are a five-piece band from Cardiff whose sound is said to span both punk and indie, and has been described as being reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine, Huggy Bear and Dinosaur Jr. Their album Weird Sister, released on Fortuna Pop! In 2013, was described by Pitchfork as “one of the most purely exuberant, hook-stuffed indie-pop records you're likely to hear this year”.

At first glance British country punk may seem a bundle of contradictions but when you break it down, there is more synergy between the two musical movements from opposite sides of the pond than you'd hazard to guess at. For all his 28 years, London one man band Dexy is an old soul with an instinctive understanding of light and shade. The songs pour out of him and you can't help but be sucked in. Heck, you want to pull up a stool and have a drink with the man. Having already recruited a band of loyal followers, Dexy is set to continue his slow revolution. It might not be televised – yet – but there's no doubting he's the real McCoy. It's only a matter of time...
