Over the last few years, San Diego's Lights On have gained much praise as a serious band to watch. What was initially a collaborative creation between Tim Hines and Mike Kamoo of Earthling Studios, LIGHTS ON have grown to become one of Southern California's most promising and impressive bands. Their debut full length "Here Comes The Ocean", is a remarkable album that makes evident that LIGHTS ON are contenders for today’s new indie rock mainstays. In 2009 LIGHTS ON accomplished international exposure from music blogs championing their music, in turn earning them "Best of..." nominations from San Diego Music Awards for their debut 5 song E.P. "Waiting For The Heart To Beat". The EP's classic "new wave' inspired songs found a unique space in current popular music that intrigued and drew a wide variety of fans.

Two Shoes sind 5 Berliner, die es sich im Februar 2007 zur Aufgabe gemacht haben, den selten anzutreffenden Kompromiss zwischen Tanzbarkeit, eingängigen Melodien und experimentellem Anspruch des Indie/Rock zu finden. Bereits 18 Monate nach Bandgründung dürfen sie mehrere Shows in einschlägigen Berliner Clubs (Magnet Club, Postbahnhof, Bang Bang Club, White Trash, uvm. ) sowie den Support internationaler Größen wie Friska Viljor, den Dirty Pretty Things, The Rifles und Glasvegas zu ihren Referenzen zählen. Nach dem Schaffen einer stabilen Berliner Fanbase arbeiten die Jungs nun an der Fertigstellung Ihrer Debut-EP, welche im Jahr 2010 veröffentlicht werden soll und jetzt auch endlich kommt (04.08.10) !

The Jerusalem based band ‘Umlala’ is an experimental music project, compromised of five members: Josef Laimon as lead singer and songwriter, Orel Tamuz on guitar, Yuval Goren on bass, Omri Blau on drums and Zohara Niddam on keyboard and vocals. Coming from different musical backgrounds, the band members managed to unite their abilities and inspirations to create a unique sound from which they all draw vast gratification. Umlala literally translates from Hebrew as ‘miserable’. The band chose the name due to the contradiction between the exuberant sound of the word and the expression of their mood. However the atmosphere the band creates when performing far contradicts its name, as they have been able create an
infectious release that has transformed their original state of mind into a sound that leaves no one indifferent. This consistently results in an audience replying to the lead singer’s eternal question: “How do you convert PDF to JPG?” with a powerful “I don’t know!”

French Films are a brand new five-piece Indie Band from Finland. Their first single "Golden Sea," is out now! The band compares themselves to The Drums and Wavves but with a flair for the dramatic out of the catalogue of post-post-punk acts. Angular, beachy guitars compete with soaring vocals and shimmering keys. Another single called "Lift me up" is out now on their myspace page. You should listen. In the next months an EP will come out. The Golden Sea EP is almost mixed & mastered, so you can get it.
