The first show of new material for the New Year! I hope you enjoyed the Festive 50 countdown for 2011 during the last 2 week's shows. 2012 kicks off with loads of quality new tracks!
So we start looking at some of the bands to watch for 2012 as most of the print publications, websites and blogs are all going on about. I took a quick look at a few pages/articles/blogs and found Cowboys & Indies has already featured 15 of the bands to watch for this year during 2011. Talk about a finger on the pulse!
So excited to see a couple new releases in particular this week.
Firstly, Rose Elinor Dougall is back with a new free downloadable EP.
It features 3 demo songs recorded shortly after the release of her 2010 debut. She has stressed that these tracks are not indicative of the material she is currently working on for her 2nd album.
The second release features more solo material from former Long Blondes members. Both come via the same release, a split cassette single featuring Former Lover & Nature Set. Former Lover being the first new music from Dorian Cox and Nature Set featuring Reenie playing bass and singing. A must for all Long Blondes fans and just 6 really great tracks period.
A special thanks to Naked Under Spacesuit for providing a few mp3s so I could share them with you. So stay tuned in coming weeks to hear more from both these excellent releases.
