THE GAUSS EXPERIENCE (hamburg, germany)
anthemic post-hardcore from germany!

tilehurst childrens arkestra let the music do the talking. formed by five alumni of denefield School in tilehurst after jamming together for a number of years, the arkestra have been gigging some of reading's more illustrious venues (south street, the rising sun arts centre, global cafe, etc) since 2007 as well as throwing in the odd jaunt to london, hamburg, and bracknell for good measure. their powerful sound is as equally informed by teenage obsessions with metal, indie rock, and rap music as it is by their more mature tastes in krautrock, jazz, and progressive rock - a heady mixture that the band strip down to it's brass tacks, producing short, sharp, precise bursts of songs without the endless "faffing about" connected with many of these genres.

EBBS AND FLOWS (london, uk)
ebbs and flows is the work of rob calder, who ditched the more traditional tools of rock and folk music to form a one man space orchestra.

now utilising synths and electronic drums to create stark minimalist soundscapes ,which conjure up images of what boards of canada may have sounded like if they had holed up in gritty north london instead of the scottish hills.
