ADVANCE BASE

(chicago)


advance base is new music by CASIOTONE FOR THE PAINFULLY ALONE mastermind owen ashworth.
under his new moniker, ashworth conjures dreamy waltzes, heavy-hearted
ballads & electro pop torch songs from rhodes electric piano, sampler, & drum machine.

advance base songs deal with deceased racehorses, estranged siblings, disappearing
loves & all things long lost.

ALASDAIR ROBERTS

(glasgow)


an acclaimed scottish singer-songwriter signed to DRAG CITY. his discography not
only covers his own compositions, but also traditional folk from the british isles,
and an impressive list of collaborators. always a favourite at south street, and
we're very excited that he can make it 2013's DOUBLEDOTBASH.

ARSENIO

(reading)


ARSENIO are an unassuming guitar and drum duo from the burbs of reading who play
a form of glistening high powered sportsmusic. chug and squall and syncho rumble.
math rock scribbled on a napkin, more than the sum of its parts, an equation that
does not equate. sprawling and restless riff monster compojams that hide their tracts
of melody like an ogre hides his heart. that lodge their spawn nestled in your ears
and leave them to hatch and grow up in your brain. enjoy.

COLD PUMAS

(brighton / london)


entrancing motorik dance party. pure aural joy.




^^top^^




GUNCLEANER

(london)


horoughly unpleasant noisy technoid sounds from some of the arms and legs
that previously brought you NITKOWSKI.




^^top^^




JOHN Q MICROWAVE

(elsewhere)


john q microwave is elusive to say the least. we have only been able to communicate
with him via rob calder, the mastermind behind previous ddd!? artist EBBS AND FLOWS.
his representative has assured us that his music will be somewhere between
dark, pounding and slightly distorted.




^^top^^




KID CANAVERAL

(edinburgh)


KID CANAVERAL are a two-boy/two-girl indie pop group from edinburgh who write
tunes you can move around & flail your limbs to. in true indie spirit, they have
self-released four 7″ singles and their debut album, and have since signed with
the legendary FENCE RECORDS.




^^top^^




LOVE.STOP.REPEAT

(surrey)


love.stop.repeat is lindsay west and david millar. they play what might be
neatly described as alt-folk, using as many instruments as two people can possibly
juggle on stage to bring their songs to life.

main vocalist lindsay hops between guitar, harmonium and synth, while dave
tinkers with guitars, banjo, ukulele and accordion, tapping out beats with bits
of drum kit spread out on the floor at his feet.

MOON ATE THE DARK

(london)


driven together by a shared love of film music and a mutual interest in repetition,
anna rose carter and christopher brett bailey have been feeding pianos into guitar
amplifiers since 2009. in 2012 they emerged as MOON ATE THE DARK and a debut
release on SONIC PIECES.




^^top^^




PET CAT

(reading)


propulsive dream pop reminiscent of galaxie 500 and pre-major label rem with a
rocket shoved up them. ex-members of hunting the shy and tilehurst childrens arkestra.




^^top^^




SILENT FRONT

(kingston-upon-thames)


silent front are truly phenomenal, punching out beautiful songs based around
staccato beats, passion and a raging guitar. influences range from the obvious
likes of fugazi to the more esoteric.




^^top^^




SQUARE GLASSES

(reading)


intriguing new punk rock from the shire. formally known as LINGERING HANDS.

THE PAWNBROKER

(reading)


ben sandiford and pete brookes are the pawnbroker.
the pawnbroker, formed in 2008 in reading, berkshire, due to owning the same record
and film collection, make minimal hymns reflecting ecm sensibilities, through
satie, eno & budd, arvo part and low.




^^top^^




THE 3.1419 WONDERS

(reading)


the 3.1419 wonders are a band formed between former members of pete and the pirates,
hot silk pockets and desdemona. they provide us with lo-fi slacker sing-alongs akin
to a purer, more british weezer.




^^top^^




THIS MACHINE WON'T KILL FASCISTS BUT IT MIGHT GET YOU LAID

(london)


klanging metallic textures, insistent overtones and grinding repetitions
performed in sharp suits, at maximum volume.




^^top^^




THOUGHT FORMS

(wiltshire)


hought forms are a three piece band from wiltshire who've been making music
together since 2004 when they started life at castello del terrascope.

charlie romijn (guitars / vocals), deej dhariwal (guitars / vocals) and guy
metcalfe (drums) have already made their mark live - cultivating a colossal sound
that bands twice their number would struggle to re-create, with appearances at
various ATP events and tour support slots with portishead and esben and the witch
in the past year.
