Cool Ruins — coolruins.bandcamp.com/album/truth-love
Between order and chaos lies Cool Ruins. Rising from the ashes of Southern California band Tropical Depression, the enigmatic Seattle producer and vocalist returns with “Truth = Love” a 4 song EP two years in the making. The follow up to the Cool Ruins EP (2015) “Truth = Love” is a concise journey to the heart of existence through 4 distinct tracks. Tying the wide range of dynamic electronics together are vocals with an emotional heft that is seldom heard in the digital age. Bringing to mind the likes of Moderat and Thom Yorke, these sweeping, off-kilter compositions will allow you to step outside of yourself. If only for a moment.
OLA — soundcloud.com/o-l-a
A two-piece taking the less travelled path around Manchester’s
live venues. Over the past few years OLA comprising Dean Jones and Kevan Hartman — have performed on stages at John Rylands Library, Manchester Cathedral and Whitworth Art Gallery and have shared the stage with Here We Go Magic, Future Islands, Zola Jesus, Sylvan Esso and Errors touring constantly in the North West.
Hard to pin down, their music is characterised by it’s questing, forward momentum, guitars and delicate orchestral elements into great dream-pop odysseys. They have released two EPs since 2013, assembled and performed film scores, including Ron Fricke’s Koyaansqatsi and collaborated on various creative projects with organisations and artists. They plan to release a new single Light Year’s and a new album in 2018.
Spiders Eat Vinyl — soundcloud.com/spiders-eat-vinyl
Spiders Eat Vinyl began life in Sheffield in 2005, when childhood friends Jonny Freeman and Jack Moxley began recording albums worth of lo-fi, experimental jams and giving them out to their classmates. After expanding to encompass vocals and drums between 2008 and 2010, and gigging around the North and self-releasing two live EPs as a four-piece, Spiders went back to their core line-up, and relocated to Manchester in 2011. Since then they have been improving, experimenting, and honing their sound, which is a hybrid of programmed beats, pads and synths with lush piano and melodic guitar hooks. 2017 sees Spiders building an entirely new live set from scratch, and releasing a wealth of new material.
