Hope you’re well, and looking forward to the weekend. We’ve got a jumbo-sized email for you, with details on Indie Label Market, new releases from Dutch Uncles, The Scantharies, Pure Bathing Culture, plus tour dates from Elephant.
ALBUM OUT MONDAY
Those of you who have been with us from the start will know Andy Dragazis, the man behind our first ever signing Blue States. Well we’re delighted that Monday sees the release of his new project with us, an instrumental album taking as its inspiration an imaginary Greek Band of the 60s and 70s named the Scantharies. And whilst that might sound like a concept that’s difficult to pull off, Andy has produced a stunning album described by Mojo as “A decade in a microcosm, Stardust with Demis Roussos cast in the David Essex Role. Quite Brilliant.”
You can stream the whole album here:
And you can head to the following lovely people to purchase it
We cannot wait for you all to hear the wonderful new album from Dutch Uncles, Out of Touch in The Wild. But if you want to whet your appetite, head to www.dutchuncles.co.uk, where you can, as well as pre-ordering the album and buying tickets to their UK show, order up the Fester 7” backed with exclusive b-side Queenie
You can also buy Fester from the following excellent establishments
Oh, and if you check in on their website a bit later you might be able to hear another brand new track. Reckon about 6pm UK time.

ELEPHANT ON TOUR
And we thought we should let you know about Elephant’s upcoming dates with the brilliant Stealing Sheep (who earlier this year provided excellent support to Field Music on their tour), plus a foray into Europe early next year at Eurosonic. With their debut album nearing completion, you can hear them debut brand new songs at the following shows:
