Happy Accidents Everything But The Here And Now The second full length studio album from the London trio Happy Accidents, delightful and emotive indie-punk-pop that's sure to appeal to the fans of The Front Bottoms, Martha and The Winter Passing. Exploring new territory that includes washes of synths, keys and atmospheric production courtesy of Hookworm’s Matthew “MJ” Johnson (Drenge, Doe, Martha, Honeyblood), they’re also forging ahead into new lyrical pastures that reflect the often turbulent, yet upward trajectory of their experiences as a band and in their personal lives.

DZ Deathrays Bloody Lovely The third full length album from the Australian outfit DZ Deathrays. Thrashy and energetic rock with a groovy, dance-punk edge. If you're into the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, Death From Above 1979 and The Dirty Nil will dig this. Bloody Lovely is the DZ Deathrays expanded universe: the perfect amalgamation of all that has come before it, but kicking in the afterburners, and shooting into the stratosphere as we all hold on for dear life.

Tigercub Evolve Or Die EP The follow up EP to their debut album, Kingston visitors Tigercub are back with their Evolve Or Die EP, pushing their post-grunge influenced rock sound further. Give this a listen if you're into the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, Fangclub and Dinosaur Pile-Up. 2017 has been a big year for TIGERCUB, and after emerging triumphant with a huge debut album sending ricochets around the rock world, we’re doing something really special, fresh from packing out Dingwalls, touring with PABH and Royal Blood and playing all the best festivals. Releasing a statement EP, Evolve or Die, this is a manifesto of intent & stylistic pivot for a band determined to build, to transform, to cement their reputation as one of the most innovative, powerful and relevant bands in the UK.

Happy Accidents You Might Be Right Debut album from London indie-punk three-piece Happy Accidents. Fans of Martha and The Fronty Bottoms you need to check these guys out! With sugar-coated choruses and ‘four to the floor’ disco drums, the band’s sonic urgency creates the kind of earworms that will be rattling round your head for months to come – fusing their deep-seated love of 90s punk and indie, whilst still managing to sound as fresh as any of their contemporaries. Quickly making a name for themselves in DIY punk circles, they’ve shared stages with the likes of The Front Bottoms, Martha, Muncie Girls, and countless others… This will be your album of the summer!

Various Artists / Alcopop! We grew up on a diet of Jurassic Park and Sensible Soccer (and all we have left is this lousy record label) Expected 11th July One of our favourite labels, Alcopop!, release a compilation to mark 50 releases and 5 years of hard work. Features many Banquet faves including Stagecoach, Johnny Foreigner and The Attika State who have all played shows for us! "Alcopop have released the coolest compilation of all time' - NME Brief biog: Back in 2006, two drunken boys borrowed some money, gambled it on a resurgent Portsmouth to beat Charlton (god bless Lomana LuaLua), and started a record label. Little did they realise that 5 years and 50 releases later, things would still be going this strong! Based on mutual vices, musical passion and an undying respect for all things independent, those two boys shared one goal: to take the best indie pop hits, put them out on wonderful formats (frisbees, menus, maps in bottles, and lush cardboard artwork), and to create a community for people who still believe that physical releases are ace, that music is definitely not dying, and that money always comes second to good ideas, true passion and wonderful tunes. In those five years, the boys have represented at every major UK festival with bands and showcases alike, racked up hundreds of thousands of touring miles, put on shows everywhere from ice cream shops to beaches, ripped off wholesale the Hooch logo (as yet unpunished), worked with their favourite bands of all time, broken stacks of magnificent new talent, sponsored Gretna 2008 FC, watched Cool Runnings a record 937 times, and released "the coolest compilation of all time"(NME). Having worked with a whole host of wonderful artists - including Johnny Foreigner, Stagecoach, Midget, This City, Sam Isaac, Freeze the Atlantic, My First Tooth and more now seems like the right time to recall some of our finest musical moments on an atom powered action, solid god bubblegum, POPTASTIC compilation CD (to write home about). The compilation comes covered in pics of Alcopop bands, fans, artists and dinosaurs (obviously). http://alcopop.wordpress.com/ Alcopop! CD Pre-Order
