Divus Julius presents: Bear’s Den

The duo of Andrew Davie and Kevin Jones has completely taken their native England by storm, and are now setting their sights on bringing their eclectic folk rock tonight to Barcelona.

Bear’s Den isn’t new on the music scene. They formed in 2012, and have since released two full-length albums, the second of which, 2016’s Red Earth & Pouring Rain, reached into the Top 10 of the UK Albums Chart (#6). In April of this year, Bear’s Den have released their third LP, So That You Might Hear Me. Tonight in concert at La2 Apolo.

 

Best Covers: Courtney Barnett “Keep On”

Through her own Milk! Records, Courtney Barnett has released a majority of her records, including last year’s Tell Me How You Really Feel. Now, the Aussie-based label is putting out Milk on Milk, a new compilation album which tasks its artists to cover one another.

Due out November 15th, the collection consists of nine tracks, and one of those is Barnett’s take on the 2018 Loose Tooth single “Keep On”. Barnett’s rendition has a ramshackle yet warm quality to it, not unlike her own original material.

Hit of the week: Bad Sounds ‘Sympathetic Vibrations’

The boundless energy of sibling-fronted indie band Bad Sounds returns to our world today in the form of brand new single ‘Sympathetic Vibrations’. It’s the first Bad Sounds ration since last year’s debut album Get Better.

‘Sympathetic Vibrations’ echoes with treated vocals, distant whistles and a far-off, hazy chatter of instruments. It’s a laidback, woozy, and possibly substance-treated cut that welcomes the Bristol band back from their break as compelling as when they left. Hear the new song:

Music by Bergman: ASH

Teenage Wildlife traces the band’s recording career from exuberant debut Jack Names The Planets through to the likes of BuzzKillfrom 2018’s top twenty album Islands whilst also including a brand new offering Darkest Hour Of The Night alongside thirteen Top 40 singles.

Introducing…Talk Show

Talk Show deliver masterfully with their pre-apocalyptic angst for a generation shedding the burden of political ineffectiveness, wary of change and tired of being cheated. The cut and dried wit of the lyrics, slice like barbed wire as social echoes of the ’80s are utilised, until now the most politically charged decade of recent times.

Comparisons with Echo and the Bunnymen and Gang Of Four, Fontaines DC and Idles and a taste of punk and new wave influences.
