Welcome to the family: Nudes

As some of you may now, Saturday’s Kids recently called it a day, a pretty emotional moment for us seeing as they’re good friends and an incredible band, as well as a stalwart of the Cardiff music scene since long before we even existed as a label or started putting on shows.

Crows An Wra announce new LP ‘Kalopsia’

I have no idea if this is the way the Big Boys tend to do it, but when bands we like approach us about releases I almost categorically agree to putting them out before even hearing the tiniest snippet of a track.

Carson Wells: ‘Lads on tour’

With the Carson Wells/Human Hands tour starting this evening in York, we asked the former to write something for our blog about their travels,  tour habits, and particularly what they do to kill time on the (frequently long) journeys to and from shows. Here are a some words on the subject by their drummer, Iain. You can … Continue reading

Welcome to the Family – Plough Lines

As you can probably tell from the line-up for our Swn stage last year, we’re pretty big fans of the music scene in Manchester. The more people and bands I meet from up that way the more I get the impression that everyone from the city is A: a brilliant human, and B: in a … Continue reading
