Mystic State – Berlin (feat. Gardna)

#NewMusic from Bristol, England

Gardna’s link up with Bristol bass merchants Mystic State is just the tonic to wind down with after a long third week of the year. We’re all probably getting a bit reminiscent of fun times as we wait for the first pay day of the year to roll round. Fear not, it’ll soon come and then you too could be back in Berlin, or maybe Bristol, or Barcelona (this ”B” thing is a terribly clichéd way to end the post – we’ll shut up and let you enjoy your weekend and the track).

4 Must See Acts – Dot to Dot Bristol (2017)

#FestivalPreview Our ‘4 Must See Acts’ playing at Dot 2 Dot Festival in Bristol

Day 2 of 3 in our round up of “Must See Acts” at Dot 2 Dot Festival. Once again, we’ve joyfully listened through tracks by every act to bring you our pick of the bunch. Today it’s 4 crackers that will be gracing the stages of the Bristol leg on Saturday 27 May.

Stone Cold Fiction (@stonecoldtweets)

They describe their sound as “swampy-blues-rock”. That works for us! There are moments of intimacy and flourishes of intricacy peppered in between the high tempo riffage and smash-the-shit-out-of-the-kit drumming. This will be a fun gig.

Where: The Lanes, 22 Nelson Street, Bristol, BS1 2LE
Showtime: Saturday 27 May @ 13:30

Harvey Causon (@HCauson)

We’ve had an eye on young Harvey for a while after listening to some of his work through link ups with Maya Law and Cabrakid. Indie-pop over an ethereal bed of sounds and a voice that feels as if its pleading and pained, but that you cannot tear yourself away from.

Where: Fopp, 29-29 College Green, Bristol, BS1 5TD
Showtime: Saturday 27 May @ 17:30

4th Project (@4th_Project)

Quite literally the first band we reviewed and we were sold from the start. Otherworldly ambience, shimmering guitar lines and a vocal that holds you in right until the last breath.

Where: BrewDog, 58 Baldwin Street, Bristol, BS1 1QW
Showtime: Saturday 27 May @ 18:30

Milo’s Planes (@MilosPlanes)

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! How a band is able to pack so much power, energy and grunt into a 1:21 song is beyond us. Milo’s Planes however have that locked down. It’s noisy parcels of guitar, bass and drum based havoc that has to seen live.

Where: The Gryphon, 41 Colston Street, Bristol, BS1 5AP
Showtime: Saturday 27 May @ 20:30

Different ends of the musical spectrum this bunch, but all mega in their own right. Don’t miss them if you’re there.
