The Rifles / October 2009 UK and Ireland Tour

By on Monday, 15th June 2009 at 8:00 am

The Rifles have recently had quite a busy time – their second album went top 10 on iTunes, they’ve had sell-out shows at Shepherd?s Bush Empire, The Roundhouse, Brixton Academy and a sold out German tour. So it’s no surprise that they’ve gone and announced a pretty sizeable October UK Tour.

Daily Roundup: Sunday 15th February 2009

By on Sunday, 15th February 2009 at 5:58 pm

Busy times at the moment, lots of irons in the fire, lots of stuff coming up.

First up, you’ve probably heard about The Maccabees (pictured top) return, thanks to all the exposure they’ve been having on the likes of Radio 1 and XFM recently. I quite liked their debut, Colour It In, with its interesting tales – a sort of poor man’s Wombats. They’ve made a free download available, No Kind Words, however I must admit that I really really dislike it from what I hear. It’s boring, it’s repetitive and most of all, it’s just plain dreary.

MP3: The Maccabees – No Kind Words

Jamie T (side)Following on from the Maccabees, Jamie T (pictured right) has made a new track available on his Myspace page. It’s only a demo, called “Fire Fire”, however after the aceness of “Sheila” and “Calm Down Dearest” it’s a bit of a let down – overly distorted, and, well, just not that great. Still, it is only a demo, so it might get better.

On the happier end of things, Winston over at Winston’s Zen interviewed The Rifles’ Joel Stoker the other day, and is giving his readers the chance to win one of three copies of The Rifles’ amazing new album. Pop over there before Tuesday to enter and hopefully win!

We’ve mentioned Esser before here at TGTF, however we’ve never really listened to his tunes before. Just been sent a remix of his new single, Work It Out (video below), and it sounds amazing. Download and enjoy.
