“It’s the kind of song — carefree with zero inhibitions — that could easily spell liftoff for this band.” DIY
“Drenched in hooky guitars and dishevelled distortion, the band mine a glittery vein of rock that recalls ‘90s legends like Hole.” The Line Of Best Fit

H Hawkline has a brilliant video for his forthcoming single ‘Spooky Dog.’ Directed by Casey Raymond the video features plenty of Hawkline’s own artwork, keeping in the theme of his record ‘In The Pink of Condition.’
Watch the video here:
‘Spooky Dog’ is the second single to be taken from ‘In The Pink of Condition’ and will be released digitally on Monday 23rd March.
“Produced by Cate Le Bon – who he also plays for – In the Pink of Condition is a carousel of wiry weirdo pop that references Paul McCartney’s Ram. It is warm and cosy like Linda’s lentil stew and woolly jumpers, or perhaps the sun-dappled LA streets this album was conceived on.“
The Guardian – ★★★★
“Melodic hauntologist Huw Evans’ third album has some of his finest wonky pop tunes so far.”
DIY Magazine — ★★★★
“Mind-expanding, crazy and fearless.”
Record Collector — ★★★★
“LA via Cardiff songwriter H Hawkline has been making underground waves with his self-described “strange pop” for a few years now, but it’s with latest album ‘In The Pink Of Condition’ that he’s set to make a big splash.”
“Though now resident in Los Angeles, Huw Evans is carrying on the finest traditions of European psychedelic pop on his third album…In The Pink of Condition is very much Evans own, though, with his spiky melodies and surreal, nightmarish images about “a pack tongues” and “cut glass crystal everywhere” lingering long after being spun.”
Hawkline is currently on tour in the UK, playing a series of headline shows as well as a residency at Clwb Ifor Bach in Cardiff.
We are pleased to announce that on Monday 27th April Eaves will release his debut album ‘What Green Feels Like’.
Recorded in the autumn of 2014 at Voltaire Studios in London with producer Cam Blackwood, the album consists of 9 tracks:
2. Dove In Your Mouth
4. As Old As The Grave
7. Alone In My Mind
9. Creature Carousel
‘Spin’ is available now as a free download with all album pre-orders via iTunes
You can get the LP over at Rough Trade.
Plus, Record Store have signed LPs and CDs available to pre-order here.
Stereogum Magazine are premiering the track, which is now available to stream:
“If songs tell stories, then this is a sad one made infinitely more beautiful by a delicately rendered melody” — Stereogum
“Glacially beautiful folk-rock from the brilliant Leeds singer, with lyrics like daggers” – Sunday Times
“This heartbreaking piano ballad reveals the raw power of the Leeds singer-songwriter” – The Times
Having previously toured alongside Nick Mulvey Boy & Bear and Slow Club, and currently on a European run of shows with Philip Selway, Eaves has announced his own headline tour following the release of the album.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have unveiled a new video for their forthcoming single ‘Slow Jam 1.’
A black and white video that captures snippets of the bands chaotic and exciting live shows,

Post production & effects by Jason Galea.
Out on March 2nd as a digital release, ‘Slow Jam 1′ is lifted from 2014’s critically acclaimed album
’I’m In Your Mind Fuzz.’
They’re too willfully mad to emulate Tame Impala’s success, but if you’re after freaking out, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s outrageous noise deserves attention.“
9/10 NME Magazine
“As bonkers as their name…brilliant and thrilling“
“They’re at their most exciting when they drone, but not in the mid-paced , two-chord way of so much modern psychedelia: their drone is played at Ramones pace, with Keith Moon fills from the two drummers, and thus the opening four tracks here meld into one 13-minute sprint through the inner wardrobes of your mind.“
The Guardian, ★★★★
“Throughout this album’s viscerally thrilling, and expertly motif-filled. As such, it rates amongst the best three or four post-millenial psychedelic rock records.“
MOJO , ★★★★
“The band’s fourth album in two years comes with no warnings, and no regulations. I’m In Your Mind Fuzz is the full trip, complete with full on acid-soaked head-rush interspersed with momentary doses of bliss.“
The Line Of Best Fit , Album of The Week

“Hooton Tennis Club are four good friends from cultural capital of the world, Liverpool. The place where beers are cheap, the Beatles were formed, and it’s perfectly acceptable to wear a tracksuit to the pub. They’re currently signed to Heavenly Recordings.
What the critics say: “What sounds like a lyrical eulogy to a late friend set to lovely, languid, vaguely Teenage Fanclubbish music” — Alexis Petridis, the Guardian
Today’s premiere, “Jasper”, is produced by fellow Merseysider Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral). The track was recorded at his Mum’s house, so you imagine the band had lots of cups of lukewarm tea and biscuits delivered to the studio while they laid down this beauty of a song. Like Alexis said in the Guardian, there’s elements of Teenage Fanclub’s poppy melodic charm, but it’s been given a bit of a sheen that keeps it looking forward optimatically, rather than glancing into the rear mirror of power pop’s past. Watch above and enjoy.” — NOISEY
Jasper will be released as part of a double A-side with the track ‘Standing Knees’ on Monday 23rd February.
The single was produced by fellow Merseysider Bill Ryder Jones and will be available to purchase as a limited 7″.
