Madmess Madmess Heavy Psych trio from Portugal based in North London. Mainly influenced by 60's psychedelia and 70s Prog with hints of modern Stoner and Space Rock. They deploy their magic fog into the room to take the entire audience on a journey from the edge of a rugged desert to the outer edges of distant galaxies. The acid-doused amps of Madmess vent serpentine psych and bleed the deepest shades of violet from the electric heart of Rock & Roll. Madmess are Luis Moura (Drums), Vasco Vasconcelos (Bass) and Sam Paio (Guitar). Hassle Records 12"
We Are The Ocean Go Now and Live (10th Anniversary) A special 10th Anniversary pressing of the classic second full length album from We Are The Ocean, now on vinyl for the first time ever and includes the bonus track Distances. Massive, melodic and punchy rock songs for fans of Twin Atlantic, You Me At Six, Lonely The Brave and Mallory Knox. Vocalist/guitarist Liam Cromby has taken this opportunity to look back at the album's initial release, and subsequent impact: "Before beginning to write Go Now and Live, we had just released a 4 track E.P with some of our most melodic songs so far 'Lucky Ones' and 'Playing my heart'. We also had been on the road with bands like Funeral For a Friend, People in Planes, Mayday Parade, Canterbury, Straight Lines - bands that had big, melodic, anthems. We also had a new touring crew with us at the time which brought new music to our ears, listening to bands like The Draft, Hot Water Music. We were also listening to The Police and The Beatles, a lot at the time. Inspired and hungry to grow as a band, we fearlessly set out to write our most melodic material so far in the band's career. Not only were we set on writing big anthems but we also had matured in ourselves and felt the need to write more direct and honest lyrics. Hassle Records LP
Cuffed Up Cuffed Up EP A UK/EU exclusive variant of the ace new EP from the LA-based group Cuffed Up. An exciting mix of indie-punk with some dream-pop elements that'll appeal to fans of Wolf Alice, Swim Deep, Bully and bdrmm. “French Exit” sets the table for the kind of confessional punk that Cuffed Up brings in spades. The accompanying video for the single, directed by Josh Drew, wonderfully intercuts the track’s isolating feeling with the intimacy that can come when you find that one person who understands. With comparisons to 90’s bands like Sonic Youth and The Pixies to modern day post-punk UK acts like IDLES, it’s no wonder why the LA based quartet, Cuffed Up, have been turning heads since their debut double A-side “Small Town Kid” and “Mother/Father” was released at the end of 2019. The band garnered much support as an unsigned act first of all from KEXP (Song of The Day/Music That Matters), and subsequently from the likes of NME, DIY Magazine and The Line Of Best Fit.

Swedish Death Candy Are You Nervous? indies exclusive is on 'transparent orange' coloured vinyl. Like so many young people, in 2019 the members of Swedish Death Candy find themselves living in a state of uncertainty, not just in reference to the obvious current political unrest in the UK. The London-based international acid rockers are gearing up for the release of their forthcoming second album 'Are You Nervous?', and it’s playing on their minds. “Environmental issues, technological advances...it feels like we’re on the brink of massive change,” says Perry, “Are You Nervous? felt like an appropriate title. I’m a big sci-fi fan, and the best science fiction is generally a social commentary based in a futuristic universe. I feel like we’re living in that time. We aren’t far from the future that a lot of the classic sci-fi novels refer to.” Hassle Records CD | LP
Wess Meets West A Light Within The Fracture The new record will be the band’s third full-length studio offering, and sees them continuing their eclectic journey of musical self-discovery in typically ambitious style. Mainly known as purveyors of a defiantly optimistic strain of instrumental rock the quartet began life as the project of lead guitarist Sam Stauff, and have now grown to incorporate elements of electronica and live programming into their sound. “I think this album represents many feelings we collectively have as a band and as individuals,” explains Stauff of the concepts behind the new record “Be it feelings of hope, despair, joy – they’re all very visceral feelings towards life and the constant shifting that comes with it.
