Dimbleby & Capper @ Macbeth

'Let You Go' is a BEAST of a single, and it's the latest one from D&C. It grinds along with sultry vocals and thudding percussion, it's sexy - and one of my favourites this year so far.

Laura was on the Filthy Disco recently and you can listen again whenever you like, she's a corker. http://www.roundhouse.org.uk/explore/radio/filthy-disco/filthy-disco-16-march-2011

Crystal Fighters @ Heaven

Crystal Fighters aren't a new band. They've been loitering around for a while, sporadically dropping musical offerings like a pigeon with a funny tummy. But - they've JUST released their first album 'Star of Love' and if you like surprises, this one's for you. It tinkles along, summoning up fairy gatherings in the woods and dappled shade, and from out of nowhere a beastly dubby bit of bass will catch you right between the eyes.

Their show at Heaven was heaving, sweaty and very magical indeed. Some people aren't fond of the faux Spanish ad libbing inbetween songs (when I told my friend they aren't ACTUALLY Spanish she looked at me in awe) but they win you over by creating rather a party indeed.

With traditional Basque instruments they fuse folk and storytelling with grubby bass lines, and thunderous rave music. It really is quite a delight.

You can hear them this week on Filthy Disco with me, and their latest single 'At Home' is my new addiction.

LET YOU GO - Dimbleby & Capper

Here's the fanstastical new video from Dimbleby & Capper, she's rocking some Medusa style hair-do and somehow manages to pull it off.

I'll be chatting to her tomorrow on the Filthy Disco, and playing some grubby new music.

So, get in xxxxxxxxxx

she is wondrous, such a specimin. Thick voice, beautiful songs. Actual love for her.

Her new album 'Wounded Rhymes' is out now and it's full of heavy drums and moody love.

She played Rough Trade East on Monday, the crowd were rubbish (like actual stone statues) but she was epic.

Evryone @ Hoxton Pony

I hate Hoxton Pony, but Evryone are ACE. They played a few weeks ago and I was blown away by their jerky sound. Like Scissor Sisters on acid and way way WAY cooler.

They're playing tomorrow at The Macbeth.


Not Squares @ KOKO

NOT SQUARES ARE LOUD, they are ridiculously tight and such lovely people. They run on chips and cheese whilst on tour (apparantly its food of the gods) They are from Belfast (if my memory is correct) and seem to have a rather loyal crowd. They played KOKO in Camden last Friday and the place was packed, seriously.

Sounded divine, heavy, made me want to live

These are the worst pictures I've ever taken, sorry chaps


Elephants + Dimbleby & Capper

Hoxton Bar & Kitchen was home to a rumpus last week.

Elephants were a smidge like Beach House, just a girlier version. Really chilled out electro with heavenly vocals.

Dimbleby & Capper were off the chain in a humungous way, all big pink candy floss hair, weird masks, skitzo dancers and thumping bass heavy drums. I loved it, a lot.

Here's some really shit pictures. (blackberry's a really shoddy)

Laura from D+C will be on the Filthy Disco next week, keep your ears peeled
