Southseafest 2014


Mazes – FatCat Records

Completed in just two weeks between the sub-zero conditions of commuter town Cornwall, New York and the heart of Brooklyn, Wooden Aquarium marks the apex at which Mazes’ music to date meets. Whilst debut album A Thousand Heys was recorded on a boat and recent album Ores and Minerals was recorded across numerous takes in the back room of Dalston’s Shacklewell Arms and Jack’s bedroom, Wooden Aquarium has brought Cooper, drummer Neil Robinson and bassist Conan Roberts together in a studio again. Recorded completely live and laid down entirely onto beautifully thick two-inch tape, the trio also had company in enlisting the skills of Parquet Courts’ producer Jonathan Schenke.

Available to pre order at Pie&Vinyl here:

Honeyblood – FatCat Records

Despite their fledgling status and minimal setup, Honeyblood’s songs are fully formed and perfectly assured. With nothing extraneous, their music is driven through tightly-bound instrumentals and laced with the sheer strength and beauty of Stina’s voice. The songs resonate with deep melodic hooks and the kind of effortless charm that’ve drawn recent comparisons to the likes of Best Coast, Haim and Frankie Rose, as well as the swooning, strident delivery of more established artists like Jenny Lewis. While those are all decent touchstones for their triumphant debut single, the band also tellingly cite the darker currents of The Breeders, PJ Harvey and The Throwing Muses as lifelong influences.

Debut album available at Pie&Vinyl now!

Rickyfitts – Pie&Vinyl records label act

Let us introduce Rickyfitts, the latest sweet two piece to up the ante in our luscious seaside town/island city as we drain and tap some of the strongest sounding stuff to emerge from these beaches in a long time… Using every decade of recorded music to peel, chop and throw in to a golden melting pot, these brothers truly make an exciting new flavour which they can proudly call their own. Totally owning their post garage blues fuzz sound, these guys could only exist in the year 2014.

The Boy I Used To Be – Pie&Vinyl records label act

Portsmouth central creative, ‘The Boy I Used To Be’ has been working hard for a few years now, honing his craft – writing great songs, and playing out as much as he could. The boy has reached manhood, and the time has come for his unique brand of lo-fi bedroom grungedance pop to be released in to the wild. Pie&Vinyl records are extremely proud to announce the second release on the label, the outstanding piece of work ‘Friday Morning EP’.

Autumn’s New-Music Festival |Southsea Fest| September 20th – Multiple Venues, Southsea, Portsmouth “This is a festival that will go from strength to strength” – DIY “Puts explosive new acts in sweatboxes and lets them detonate” – Notion Magazine “A proven success” – The 405 “The sweatiest gig you could go to” – NME “A haven for catching the next big thing” – Gigwise 2014 Line-Up Widens as Next Wave of Headliners Are Unveiled It is with tremendous pleasure that Southsea Fest unveils their headline acts for it’s eighth year. Joining the top of the bill is Pulled Apart By Horses, Ed Harcourt, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Flyte, DZ Deathrays, and Laurel! Tickets available now from Once again the line-up includes many of the country’s most exciting up-and-coming talent from the worlds of rock, alternative, indie, punk, folk and pop – hosted across intimate and explosive spaces along one street. Tickets are on sale now priced at just £18 for an adult allday pass, and £10 for a teen ticket. Under 13’s are free. All passes available now via The announcement of Pulled Apart By Horses will more than ensure a high-octane finale to the Wedgewood Rooms venue. Following the release of singles ‘Hot Squash’ and ‘Lizard Baby’, the desert-rock band are now setting their attentions to the much anticipated new album landing on September 1st 2014, in perfect time for Southsea Fest buccaneers to get their boots dug into it. They join fellow Yorkshire compatriots, Dinosaur Pile-Up, who similarly promise the raucous level will be turned up to maximum. Their sophomore album, Nature Nurture, was described by The 405 as a release “packed to the brim with effervescent hooks and choruses, filled with enough power to punch through brick walls” – so it’s safe to say we’re ready for quite the spectacle. Elsewhere, Ed Harcourt will be topping the bill at the Kings Theatre. His latest album, Time of Dust, was praised as “brooding, theatrical elegance with a glitchy twist” by the NME. The modern day poet supreme is joined by Flyte, whose latest single ‘We Are The Rain’ – described by Clash as “defiantly contagious” – will offer a slab of quirky pop to proceedings. Possibly topping this year’s line-up of celebrated home-grown talent is Hampshire native Laurel who, last December, the Guardian championed as, “taking influences from Britney, Laura Marling and Lana Del Rey… [she] makes woozy, slightly subdued pop”. Keeping the volume levels in overdrive, we welcome DZ Deathrays to the line-up, the Brisbane duo’s latest single, ‘Less out of Sync’, has been branded to shows “flashes of some of the world’s last remaining riff-rock powerhouses” by Stereogum. At Southsea Fest the focus is on new bands and creating a level playing field for emerging talent. There’s no extra ticket needed for any shows, queues around the block, or VIP lists – this is a grassroots adventure in new music discovery… the way it should be… easy, simple, and honest. Your one ticket allows access to all venues, all day, from midday until the wee small hours. This year’s line-up is… Pulled Apart By Horses – Ed Harcourt Dinosaur Pile Up – DZ Deathrays – Flyte Fear of Men – Laurel – Curxes – Talons – Brontide Blessa – Mazes – Castles – Eliza & The Bear 100 Ounces – Alpha Male Tea Party – Andy Oliveri – Bad Grammar Battery Hens – Beautiful Boy – Big Fin – Big Sixes – Body Hound Boy Jumps Ship – Brawlers – Break-Ups – Dear Everyone Deluxe Flamingos – Doe – Eighteen Nightmares at the Lux – Elephantantrum Eloise Keating – Emperor Yes – Employed To Serve – Fairweather Band FALLS – Fickle Friends – Flash Fires – Floella Grace – Fred Page FURS – Gang – Goodtime Boys – Gossling – Happy Accidents – Happyness Harker – Holy – Honeyblood – House of Thieves – Hunter And The Bear Iced Out – Jesse Wylde & The Stallions – Jimmy Islip and the Ghosts w/ Sam Russo Joythief – Kagoule – Kassassin Street – Layers – Life – Lillian Todd Jones LOOKS – Love Park – Lu’Ami – Lucky One Dies First – Lyger Martha – Matt Emery – Matt Jarvis – Meadowlark – Menace Beach Michael A Grammar – Natasha North – Nothing But Thieves Osca – Passport to Stockholm – Pawws – Pedro Donkey Personal Best – Phoria – Pixel Fix – Popabawa – Prides – Pure Graft Racing Glaciers – Raglans – Richie & The Remedy RickyFitts – Rough Hands – SACHA – Saint Agnes Sam Brothers – Slaves – Spring King – Tangled Hair – Teef – The B of The Bang The Boy I Used To Be – The Cadbury Sisters – The Cairos – The Lion & The Wolf The Magic Gang – The Plastic Beats Band – The Prestige The Proper Ornaments – The Ramona Flowers – The SLM The Southsea Alternative Choir – ThisPlanet – Thought Forms Theo Verney – Tigercub – Tom Moody – Trampolene – Ultimate Painting Uncle Luc – Unknown Soldiers – Waylayers – We The Wild Woahnows – Wildest Dreams
