The Gabe Dixon Band

I love these guys!

They've got a mixture of all kinds of styles... a must see if you're ever in the area where they're performing!

Songs I'd recommend to get you started:

Happy Woman (no question, one of their most popular songs)
More Than It Would Seem
Now (for a taste of the slower stuff)

Sidenote: Gabe played keyboards on Paul McCartney's last album and was invited to tour with him, but turned it down to focus on the GDB instead

Busted, they're a punk band from North London. They rock the proverbial house. Original lyrics, brilliant melodies, saviours of rock.

No I was kidding. Busted suck.

Not new. Oh well.

Maximilian Hecker

“ROSE" is completely free of the “classic Brit-Pop influences" as one could still hear them on the first album. Looking for comparisons you´d be tending more towards tracks by SIGUR ROS, maybe also SIMON and GARFUNKEL or SUEDE.
MAXIMILIAN has become more daring especially with his lyrics, very personal, exposed and denuding they´ve become, poetic and sensual.

with GARETH JONES the right person was found to produce the album. GARETH has worked in the past with DEPECHE MODE, EINSTÜRZENDEN NEUBAUTEN, MOBY, WIRE, GOLDFRAPP, ERASURE and many more, but was capable of approaching MAXIMILIAN´s songs in a very sensible and reserved way.

also live, MAXIMILIAN will have changed. the tour to “ROSE" will not be a solotour anymore, he will be performing . with a 3 piece band, enabling him to capture and represent the full dynamics and energy of the album more than adequately in any concerts.

“ROSE" is the first proof for the right way - what a great future in front of him! we´ ll treat this records as a big priority as the album is fantastic ! 10 out of 10 !

MAXIMILLIAN HECKER and the INFINITE LOVE SONGS

He comes across as a simple man with simple delights and as a result of that the voice is the permeating source of delight on this most audacious of recordings. The swooping nature of a vocal that is inherently young and pained is quite hard to listen to at first; The Days Are Long And Filled With Pain is an obvious example of his romantic straining. But it’s not until the album draws to a close that he becomes more defined. Let Me Out is stunning in its arrangement and it puts Maxi through his paces in a Nick Drake/Elbow style. It’s a find of dynamic proportions. Let’s see if he can do it live…
Ian Abraham

Recommended song: Polyester



The Cornerstones

The Cornerstones were formed in London in 2002. Think Crowded House, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Jimmy Webb and you wouldn’t even touch half of what makes this band tick.

Built on a touch of the old school with rock solid foundations, The Cornerstones have well-crafted songs with a touch of soul and delivered hand wrapped with an abundance of passion and feeling. If you love big vocals and big songs, backed by bigger harmonies then this may well be the band that you have been searching for all your lives!

Recommended song: Something I Gotta Do

Dakona

They're a 4 piece from Canada, put on a great live show and their debut album should be out this summer. They kind of have a Better than Ezra vibe to their music.

Clearlake

It has been way too long. And they say you only recognise the true value of something when it’s gone, but that’s not quite true. You can only miss something once you’ve realised it’s gone. And sometimes to realise you need to be reminded. Like receiving a postcard or seeing a painting or a video of a place full of memories – but memories consigned by the years to the archives of your mind – is like opening a door to your caged memoirs, brittle from years of disuse. And then so happy you are to find this lost treasure that from your selective recollection and maybe a few fictional additions of your own, what you’re encountering now far outweighs the reality of the original experience. All you really need to know about ‘Cedars’ is that this album is that picture postcard or painting.

Presuming that Clearlake, the fictional town created as a setting for this band’s creativity, had long blown off the map, subsided into the sea or fallen to ruin, makes it such a glory to find that it’s evolved into this. In memory at least. 2001 saw the utterly special debut ‘Lido’, documenting Clearlake’s woes and mundanities with a lyrical clarity, burning a wick through off-kilter indieisms and giving the impression of a blank canvas that slightly betrayed the look of four men who’d blend into the background of any average Camden boozer. And ‘Cedars’ is just that, but more of course. It’s not like a digitally enhanced version, multiple-angle re-shoot with bigger, brighter, shinier lights, more a trip over its roof-tops in a hot air balloon with a Super-8 camera ticking over. Something that bit more grand.

The moment the record kicks off with the uncharacteristically stormy ‘Almost The Same’ it’s clear that constraints have been lifted. Either way, you can’t choose to amble when at the wind’s behest. Lead town planner Jason Pegg still sounds like a genetic compromise between Morrissey and Damon Albarn and is thus in perfect control of lyrics such as “I wouldn’t hurt a fly, but I really want to punish you”, often sounding meek and masterful, sullen and sarcastic within the same breath. The record breathes a very British breath, is very correct in its eccentricisms, ambitious but not uncouth, typical to its surroundings. Surroundings built on a foundation of ‘Great Eastern’-esque Delgados lushness and late-Blur Coxon-esque squibbles. This is probably the record Blur should have made next. Likelihood is they haven’t. The first truly great record of the year. You have missed them, believe us.
