BETH JEANS HOUGHTON
Geordie folk-pop princess with her Hooves of Destiny. Despite her young years, 18-year-old Beth Jeans Houghton has a talent and energy that has already propelled her from small Newcastle folk clubs to share the stage with international folkie Devendra Banhart at the Green Man festival last year.
Looking like a gothic Gwen Stefani, but sounding more like Vashti Bunyan mixed with Espers' Meg Baird, Houghton has recently developed a relationship with Finders Keepers’ Andy Votel and his wife Jane Weaver, leading to this EP, Houghton's first release on Weaver’s Bird label.
SAM AND ME
After 5 years of perfecting their harmonious pop, Sam and Me have recorded a debut album on aA Recordings to cherish, a bed sit Flaming Lips if you like with echoes of Harpers Bizarre, Heatmiser (Elliott Smith's band), Kings Of Convenience, early Lemonheads filtered through 90's arcade and games consoles.
We launch 'The Battle Of Hemsby' tonight!
