- Artist: Ali Horn
- Cut: Bloom
- Field: Liverpool, UK
- Flocks: Psychedelic, Post-Rock
- Flavours Of: Spiritualized, Tame Impala, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Bloom is Ali Horn’s second cut delivery, a laid-back, ultra-cool swirl of fuzzy gliding guitars, slacker drums and the excellent drifting vocals of Ali. There is something nostalgic and progressive about what Ali Horn has to offer, a promising rise.
- Artist: Seazoo
- Cut: Dig
- Field: Wrexham, Wales
- Flocks: Indie Pop, Lo-Fi Pop
- Flavours Of: Pavement, Super Furry Animals, The Wedding Present
From momentary wonky beginnings, the essence of what these Welsh crack-pots are about is evident, clever and polished lo-fi pop music. Guitars that serenade vocals, harmonies that drip sweetly, and all in all, just a lot of brilliance. Not long before Seazoo hold their own, they are half way there.
