We're very excited here at Dance to the Radio to be working with We Are Losers from Newbridge, County Kildare in Ireland. There's a double A-side single on its way in July with the stupidly infectious tracks Sunset Song / Cheerleader. Huge fuzzy guitar pop tunes with great harmonies. Like Raey said, bit like the Ramones meets the Beach Boys, close enough we suppose (but not really).
Here's another tune of theirs that you can have for nowt from http://dancetotheradio.bandcamp.com/, or just watch it (listen to it) loads and loads of times on Youtube, see here
So last night i was on my usual travels and caught Three Blind Wolves at Oporto. The band had traveled down from Glasgow, almost not making the gig when their van blew up just out of their hometown. Really impressed me, if you're into stuff like Neutral Milk Hotel, Fleet Foxes, Neil Young, Ryan Adams, Frightened Rabbit (well a mix of a lot of stuff) they might well be your thing.
2010 is the year Dance To The Radio, the Leeds independent label turns 5 years old. To celebrate this fact the label is reuniting some of the class of 2005 who appeared on the first Dance To The Radio release, Dance To The Radio : Leeds (DTTR002), with a new school of Dance To The Radio bands.
Dance To The Radio : Still Occupied Though You Forget features new material from The Sunshine Underground, Honour Before Glory (Whiskas / ¡Forward, Russia!) plus an exclusive preview of new material from I Like Trains. Joining the old guard will be a mix of the current Dance To The Radio roster and a selection of our favourite bands from around the world with Paul Thomas Saunders, Rose Elinor Dougall, Bear In Heaven, Club Smith, Three Trapped Tigers, Oberhofer, Bear Hands and (The) Tony Castles joining the party
Released on a glorious 12” picture disc the label will be joining the worldwide celebrations for Record Store Day. Dance To The Radio has also promised £2 of every 12” record sold through the DTTR store will go to the UNICEF, helping out with the current world disasters.
