Introducing…Lump

Laura Marling gave us one of 2017’s best albums in Semper Femina, but already she’s back and prepping to release a follow-up. The forthcoming full-length is called LUMP and marks the first collaboration between Marling and Mike Lindsay, founding member of Tunng and Throws. Together, they go by the name LUMP.

Their debut LP was recorded in Lindsay’s London studio and has a June 1st release date through Dead Oceans. Lindsay handled the music while Marling was in charge of the lyrics and vocals. Per a press release, Marling’s contributions are described as “a bizarre but compelling narrative about the commodification of curated public personas, the mundane absurdity of individualism, and the lengths we go to escape our own meaninglessness.”

Introducing…Bilk

This week we are introducing…Bilk. Essex based working class Indie 3-piece Bilk released debut single ‘Give Up’ produced by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral) at Parr Street Studios, Liverpool a month ago.

Having all just turned 18 years of age Bilk write honest songs about the world they live in and the things they go through as teenagers living in modern suburban Britain. The band spent last year gigging extensively in Essex building a strong grassroots following, leading to their debut play on BBC Introducing at the end of 2017.

With influences ranging from The Jam, The Streets and Arctic Monkeys through to Eminem and Dizzee Rascal, Bilk are a young Indie band inspired by the authentic attitude and message in Hip Hop and Grime.
