The 1975


Record Store Day UK has announced The 1975 as its 2023 ambassadors. “The guys and I are really proud to be ambassadors for Record Store Day this year”, says frontman Matty Healy. ”Independent record stores are the lifeblood of the music industry and have played a crucial role in our story so far. It couldn’t be more important to support their vital community and culture”.

ILMC has announced details of a series of showcases that are taking place in the middle of this year’s live music industry conference. Under the banner London Calling and also open to the public, shows will take place at Phoenix Arts Club, 21 Soho, The Lower Third and Spice Of Life in Soho, with performances from artists including Demob Happy, Hamish Hawk and Swim School. More info here.

A new Manchester-based music conference and festival, called Beyond The Music, is set to take place on 11-14 Oct. The event will be officially launched with a show headlined by New Order at SXSW next month. More info here.



Chat Pile have released the video for ‘Tropical Beaches Inc’ from their ‘God’s Country’ album. “’Tropical Beaches Inc’ is a favourite among the band and probably the song that’s the most fun to play live”, they say. “It has some of the dumbest riffs on the whole album and we gleefully lose a couple brain cells every time we play it”.

Shonen Knife have released new single ‘Mujinto Rock’, the opening track from new album ‘Our Best Place’, which is out on 15 Feb.

Jonnine has released new single ‘Tea For Two (Boo)’. The HTRK vocalist’s new solo album ‘Maritz’ is out on 16 Feb.

Fatima Al Qadiri is set to release new EP ‘Gumar’ on 10 Mar. From it, this is ‘Mojik (Your Waves)’.

BRDMM have released new single ‘It’s Just A Bit Of Blood’, their first for Rock Action Records. The band are set to release new album, ‘I Don’t Know’, on 30 Jun.
