One Man Melt presents...
THE TRAVELLING BAND:
Manchester 6 Piece, The Travelling Band take influence from folk, county, psyche and rock before filtering it through their own sunshine-POP sensibility. On their debut album, Under The Pavement rarely has a British band of recent times sounded this fresh and timeless, here is a band who excel at sounding happy, sad, frustrated, and vulnerable, often at the same time, and their best songs, whether they're fast or slow, feel like they're bursting with energy and wisdom.
Winners of the Glastonbury New Talent competition 2008, The Travelling Band's live show is a feel-good tour-de-force. Swapping instruments, inspiring audience participation whilst shifting effortlessly from hearfelt ballads, through psychedelic sing alongs to classic pop tunes, their's are shows where no-one leaves unconverted.
National Club are an upcoming band to really watch out for. Their inspired epic indie sound have already earned them a feature on the 'Best of MySpace' iCast and fans at The Guardian. Hear them preview new material from their forthcoming release - not to be missed!
THE LIGHT SHINES:
thelightshines is one man. lo-fi drones, tambourines, backwards triangles, sitars, guitars, and the sound of old records.
'It's spaced out stuff, kind of how I imagine (and yes, it is something I think about daily) BRMC would sound if they went round to Anton Newcombe's, called up Brian Wilson to make up the numbers, ate a few specially ordered mushrooms, then held a séance so that Syd Barrett could join in the ensuing jamming session. I'm sure you'll agree, such a tantalizing and frankly barmy analogy could only be conjured up for something special, and thelightshines are it.' - High Voltage
'dreamy lo-fi guitar psychedelia' - Manchester Music
'The overall effect is The Beatles' "Within You Without You" via Spacemen 3 in "Perfect Prescription" woozy drone-blues mode; an envelpoingly addictive trance... It's like a sundazed acoustic Spiritualized' - Manchester Music
