NAPOLEON IIIRD

"He makes a unique kind of leftfield pop from piles of antique organs and car-boot keyboards, gentle strummed chords and driving glitched beats. His live show also features a reel-to-reel tape player, sometimes through surround-sound speakers, and a strobing acoustic guitar. Following his first national tour with Applicants, Evenings, Bishi and The Open Mouths in late 2005, he has quickly gained a mighty live reputation. He has since played all sorts of support slots with bands such as Hot Chip, Clor, The Mystery Jets, Forward, Russia! and The Research." - Drowned in Sound

SCREAMING MIMI

"It's a great feeling when you pick up a CD knowing nothing about a band, put it on and hear a track that blows you away. As is the effect of Screaming Mimi's 'Who Is Louise?'. Two minutes and nine seconds of wonder leave you begging for more and wondering where the songs male protagonist is lurking. It sounds like the Pixies if they never had Frank Black singing and instead gone ahead with a sultry, confident, purring female lead." - Scott Lewis, Leeds Music Scene

THE HALF RABBITS

"Impossible-to-ignore volume and insistence of someone hammering a point home and a dark, foreboding compulsiveness" - Drowned In Sound

"[The Half Rabbits' music] would make a good film score to accompany a scene of being chased through a dark forest pursued by a pack of wolves. Gothic is too tame a word for this outfit" - BBC
