THE PENELOPES (Live)
Ladies and gentlemen, meet The Penelopes. Axel Basquiat and Vincent T hail from Paris and make the kind of sun-kissed, effortless electro-tinged indie anthems that belie the fact that they're musical upbringing was based almost completely on British bands such as The Cocteau Twins and New Order. Perhaps ironically for a band that started out worshipping Britain's finest exponents of gloomy indie, The Penelopes now find themselves delivering big, multi-layered sparkly indie-pop, but that initial influence is there in the immediacy of the melodies. Brilliantly, the pair describe their sound as a â€œrainbowâ€ of colour, or, for fans of food-based analogies, â€œlike a big saladâ€ with influences and themes tossed together. However they describe it and regardless of how you discover it, The Penelopes will brighten up your day, as evinced by the lithe electro-pop of recent single "Sally In The Galaxy" but quoting influences as diverse as the Vaselines and Soulwax...
Having released one of the very best albums of 2009 in Iceland according to critics and others alike, Bloodgroup have risen from making simple electro pop in run-down houses in East-Iceland to something much bigger.This four-piece band is known for sensational live shows, their captivating melodies and powerfully crafted brand of electronic music. Bloodgroup's second album, Dry Land received the Icelandic independent "Kraumur" Album award and has been called "the best album of the year" by most critics in Iceland, and has been described as a big step forward for the band.

Expect quality disco-electro-party set that will get your b-b-body movin' in places you didn't know existed...
