“The hottest new thing in music” – Elton John
Bright Light Bright Light has provided a follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut album in this new EP, “In Your Care”.
In first track “In Your Care,” Bright Light mastermind Rod Thomas examines the relationship changes that occur between families when people move away, and what keeps them together. Its filmic orchestration and heavier than usual beats have ensured that it is already a live favourite among fans.
Rod then jumps to electronic pop on “An Open Heart,” which garnered 20,000 listens on Soundcloud within two weeks of being posted, cementing itself as a key song in the Bright Light right Light repertoire.
“Same Dream” illustrates how far back Rod’s influences go by demonstrating his love of late 80s/early 90s production. It was written and produced with Andy Chatterly (UNKLE, Kylie, Nerina Pallot) who added some subtle BVs to the track.
“Movement in the Dark” returns to the filmic aesthetic that “In Your Care” started with, drawing inspiration from Argento‘s “Phenomena” and using strings, piano and beats to tell the story of a metamorphosis, highlighting Rod’s ability to write songs not necessarily designed for the dancefloor.

With the release of Psapp’s brilliant new album “What Makes Us Glow” right around the corner, we’re excited to announce the first single: ‘Wet Salt’
The two track single is available in a lovely, green-coloured 7″ as well as digital formats.
Here’s what Psapp have to say of Wet Salt:
” This track is all about living in Wood Green in London – the bustle, the dirt, the magic of city life, the pull of it and the occasional yearning for sprawling hills and luscious green. This is what happens when you let Psapp in a room with all their favourite instruments like the M’Bira, Philicorda, Omnichord and Boomwhackers and lock the door.”
All purchases of the 7″ through the Official Psapp Store will receive a digital download of the single.

‘Wet Salt’ by Psapp – OUT NOW through The state51 Conspiracy
“We always talked about making the music more electronic, with more of a party vibe whilst still remaining a live band” says Lee J. Malcolm, a techno producer in his own right. “The people who have watched us over the years will have seen a steady influx of synths and other electronic devices creep onto stage. I think it was time to just embrace the idea fully and try something new.”
“’Blue Clouds’ was originally chosen due to the interesting push and pull of the beat and its strong melodic hook. We have always been a rhythmically-orientated band and this track gave us something to get our teeth into. Using live drums really helps to bring the track alive and is great to play live.”
This week sees the release of Satelliti‘s next collection of head-banging electronic jams in the shape of a ludicrously fluid 8-track long player, titled ‘Transister‘. Head-banging, foot-tappin’, brain wrangling, live electronic workouts are what you’ll find in this beauty of a gem!
The Italian duo of Andrea Polato (drums) and Marco Dalle Luche (keys) formed in the northern Italian town of Bolzano in 2010, having both, independently of each other, previously lived in London. To each other they brought experiences translatable to a new musical project: one that could exert a powerful hold on any listener with just those elemental instrumental constituents.
