South West English Indie Rock Is Hard...
Art Is Hard is a small independent label that is doing its darnedest to promote all the best there is to offer in the south west expanses of Ye Olde England. They have released a sampler, Brink Of The Clouds, that showcases some of these bands, and in an innovative twist are selling T-Shirts that showcase each act also! Keep an eye out on their site for more details. In the meantime, check out a couple of the below tracks by Dutch Husband (a Bournemouth quartet that hark back to that distorted indie rock sound of the 90s that I love), Colours (London Pixies acolytes), Kinnie the Explorer (lo-fi experimental freakists) and Cycle Schmeichel (two guys making noise because they wanna).
Dutch Husband - Gratitude
Colours - Desert Dessert
Cycle Schmeichel - Bitchin'
Kinnie The Explorer - Blind Spider
