SLOW CLUB

Slow Club hail from Sheffield and are a sort of one man band, only with two people. Charles Watson strums guitar and sings while Rebecca Taylor plays drums and all sorts of weird instruments, like water-filled glass bottles, spoons and the back of a wooden chair. And sometimes an organ called Miles. Not something you get to see and hear every day, but it is preciously this engaging originality that has secured them a mass of followers and led to nationwide tours with likes of Fionn Regan, Noisettes, Hot Club de Paris, Tilly and the Wall, Jamie T and Jeremy Warmsley.

After giving the world such a joyous gift in the form of their debut album ‘Yean so’, Slow Club generously deliver another with their new album ‘Paradise’, set for release through prestigious indie label Moshi Moshi Records this September.

“The rockabilly jangle pop tunes on ‘Yeah, So’ combine witty lyrics touching on heartbreak, death and despair with shiny harmonies, thundering percussion and folk guitars and the result is an album that manages to create a totally unique sense of riotous melancholy. The sheer scope and charming complexity of this record is hugely impressive.” – The Fly

SWEET BABOO

A resident of the mountains of North Wales, Sweet Baboo is the alias of Stephen Black, a warm, witty and wise songwriter with a love of the country strum.

A key member of the Welsh music scene, he has made many appearances on record and in the live bands of artists such as Cate Le Bon, El Goodo, Richard James, Spencer McGarry Season and Euros Childs. A shared musicality with Childs (the ex-Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci frontman) led to Black co-producing Child’s latest LP, ‘Son of Euro Child’. In 2008 he was invited to perform in the backing band of another cult hero, Daniel Johnston.

After a series of self-released homemade EPs and appearances on various compilation albums, Sweet Baboo released two full length albums on his own Businessman Records. ‘The Mighty Baboo’ (2008) and ‘Hello Wave’ (2009) led to radio sessions for Marc Riley, Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie.

2010 saw the release of his third and most ambitious album, ‘I’m a Dancer/Songs About Sleepin’. The album containing songs of lost love, girls, drinking and sleeping, was recorded at his home in North Wales with the help of a talented group of musicians.

BOAT TO ROW

Folk collective Boat to Row, Captained by Michael King have cast off as a five piece, coupling a rare sense of genuine ease in each other’s musical company with a fresh, energetic sound.

King’s nimble guitar melodies cushion a rich set of boy-girl harmonies, tripping glockenspiel, swooning violin and ricocheting drum beat. The band also boasts a many-hued spectrum of lyrical themes, gliding from young love and tender friendships to outdoor sauntering and nautical fantasy. Aside from heady romance acoustic, Michael has turned his hand to the ebullience of the working classes, infectious bass riffs and pounding feet; this Midlands outfit is by no means lacking in versatility.

Boat to Row have navigated the shores of the UK this past year, supporting the likes of Willy Mason, The Acorn, Johnny Flynn and Slow Club with their warm sound
