THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 45

Thanks to all those that came to our last party (#4), as we thought it was the best yet.  Wild Palms played one of the best shows we’ve ever put on.  The culture of new continues as we look to the next showcase of cutting edge music, with party #5.

Of course everybody’s favourite lens twiddler, Eleni Mettyear, will return to snap all you drunk punters.  The results from the last photobooth are found here.  Bring your best.  Whatever that might be.

Our new mixtape, compiling a selection of the world’s newest tracks, will exclusively be handed out, weeks before it’s available to anyone else, along with the Recommender badges and other goodies.  We list the mixtape from April’s show below.  If you didn’t make our last party, then try clicking play to see what you missed…

THE RECOMMENDER MIXTAPE # 5

MUCHUU – This brother/sister duo surpass their young ages with a box full of magical, gorgeous pop songs.  Japan already love them, so cute and impossibly irresistable are both their songs and their looks.  Time for the UK to fall in love with them too. Check out this remix of their tune Somebody Tell Me.

THE GOOD NATURED – In a year where strong female vocalists have stopped the traffic like an Icelandic volcano, we bring you the very next queen to the throne.  Star quality, showmanship, and most importantly a special ability to pen an extraordinary pop tune, will be evidenced in one of our most exciting headliners ever.  Here’s a very recent Baby Monster remix of her track Your Body Is A Machine.

BATTERY POWERED DJs – Our resident DJs will round off the evening, playing tracks exclusively from the blog, so expect cutting edge, razor sharp selections. If you want to know what tunes you should be listening to this year then check out this set from Brighton’s scenester DJs.

THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 37

We are still buzzing after our last impressive show headlined by Velo. Those guys have all the ingredients to be huge.  :Kinema:‘s support was the perfect match too and it’s good to see they’ve got onto The Guardian’s ‘New Band Of The Day‘ listing since.  We hope Velo will return to play our planned showcase at The Great Escape Festival in May.  More details to follow on that one in due course…

Looking ahead to our next show, we will obviously bring back the amazing Eleni Mettyear and her photobooth, which is creating it’s own reputation amongst the crowds, so make sure you look gorgeous.  The legendary Recommender Mixtape, (4th edition), will be ready and handed out in gift packs, alongside our badges (seeing them on lapels all around town now!) and stickers, amongst other items.  See the mixtape mp3 listed below that was handed out at our last party.  Lastly we will be providing some amazing music to help make our first Saturday night go with bang, no, make that a BOOM!

THE HIGH WIRE – First up on tonight’s showcase will be this London trio who make utterly astonishing, angelic pop music.  Having released their debut album, The Sleep Tape, earlier this very month, we know that we can expect a set packed with extraordinary songs.  Come see them live and we promise you will get as convinced as we are that this is a very special band.

FOREIGN OFFICE – Feel the evening change gear as this quad of fantastic songsmiths arrive to play the last gig prior to the launch of their single, Leaving The House (29th March). It’s as strong as any indie track we’ve heard in recent times and the buzz is building up. They’ve recently supported other Recommender favourites, such as Wave Machines, O.Children and our headliners for April, Wild Palms. Watch it hit fever pitch as these upbeat melody makers storm our party.

CASIOKIDS (DJ SET) – If you know about the Casiokids then you know how expert they are at whipping the crowd into a frenzy, so we expect no less from their DJ sets. However, if you don’t know the Casiokids (!?) then prepare yourself to witness the dancefloor taking off. They return from their recent supporting tour of Hot Chip and a successful SXSW Festival in the USA. There really couldn’t be a better way to enjoy a Saturday night.
