Miss June

Miss June

Miss June is what happens when angst matures. Raised in the embers of punk rock, Miss June harness jagged, noisy guitars filtered through the unrivalled stage presence of front person Annabel Liddell, unafraid, unapologetic and ready to wake up the music scene.  Described as “some unholy union between Sonic Youth and Le Tigre” the NZ four piece, completed by the music school alumni recruited by Liddell – guitarist Jun Park, bass player Chris Marshall and drummer Tom Leggett – has built a reputation for fierce, formidable and head-spinning live shows.  Miss June have caught the attention of acts like The...

Sleaford Mods

Sleaford Mods

Call them minimalist agit-rock, beat-based political punk, or…don’t, but what you can’t call Sleaford Mods is half-arsed. They’re aggressive, abrasive, and unabashed in their lyrical support for England’s working class and in railing against the oligarchs who deny people their basic human and civil rights.  Vocalist Jason Wiliamson shouts against austerity-era Britain’s malaise and stagnation with plenty of profanity, but even more cleverness and wit; and while his lyrics specify conditions in his home country, his anger and call-to-arms can unite all of us who witness and work under a system that privileges the wealth of the few over the...

Weyes Blood

Weyes Blood

Weyes Blood is the moniker of California-based artist Natalie Mering. Titanic Rising, her fourth album and Sub Pop records debut, has received unanimous critical acclaim. Re-imagining the Titanic disaster as a metaphor for climate catastrophe, Weyes Blood designs her own universe to soulfully navigate life’s mysteries. Manoeuvering through a space-time continuum, she intriguingly plays the role of melodic, sometimes melancholic, anthropologist. “I realized I had to forge my own path”, Mering said. “Nobody was going to do that for me. That was liberating. I became a Joan of Arc solo musician.”
