Unkle Bob – ‘The Long Way Home’

Glasgow’s Unkle Bob provides today’s Song of the Day with the heart-warming ballad ‘The Long Way Home’. Assumedly, a song about the journey of a relationship reaching a corrosive end, instead of being left in the depths of depravity and bitterness, this weeps of a more positive reflection. With its atmospheric, lo-fi rock, it is…

HQFU – Ca$hle$$ Lip$

Could this be the best music video of 2015? Harking back to a more colourful age, HQFU‘s 90s hardcore influences are hard to ignore.

Notably, their first single ‘Talk’ is to be released by gutsy, independent label Smalltown America and also is today’s Podcart Song…

With a delicate menace, ‘Sisters’ explodes with industrial percussion, brooding vocals and cinematic production.

Estrons – ‘Make A Man’

We venture to Cardiff for Song of the Day. Red-blooded quartet Estrons have hit us hard with single ‘Make A Man’. Due for release 4th December via Gofod Records Ltd, the track is saturated with titanic guitar riffs and anthemic hooks in extremis. I cannot wait to experience them live.
