Hot Ticket: Buzzcocks @ Black Cat, 9/4/14

Source: We Love DC » Music

After the Sex Pistols shook up the U.K. music scene in 1976, new music groups exploded across the country, and perhaps the city of Manchester cultivated the most intriguing of the bands that resulted.

Among them: the Buzzcocks, the legendary punk popsters, who have released a new album, The Way, this year.

It’s remarkable that the Buzzcocks have managed to stay together despite an extended breakup in the ’80s; more remarkable that the band retains two of its original members in vocalists and guitarists Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle; and absolutely most remarkable that the new album (funded through PledgeMusic) ...

Introducing: Letters To Fiesta

Meet Manchester-based alt-pop group Letters to Fiesta. “Tears Apart”, from their upcoming Vampires EP, exemplifies the band’s dedication to thoughtful production. The track begins with the haunting echo of frontwoman Anna Louisa Etherington’s voice accompanied only by a simple guitar line. Spare instrumentals join in, creating a space for Etherington to guide the song’s build-up. Etherington experiments with ethereal and full, earthy vocals within the backdrop of a playground of percussion and crystally electronic sounds traditionally characteristic of more ambient genres, culminating in a dynamic track that commands a listen. Stream “Tears Apart” below.
