Cats Eyes
Run-of-the-mill indie pop, rescued by its catchy B-side, on vinyl only single from Welsh singer-songwriter, Alex Dingley


Bows (2002)


Cassidy
Second album from drum 'n' bass act the Bows which takes "elements of trip-hop, dream-pop, and drum'n'bass and fuses them together perfectly" to create a sound which is reminiscent of both MBV and Roni Size


Cowbell (2010)


Never Satisfied
Heavily 60's and mod-influenced vinyl only single from garage rock duo, Cowbell


Die! Die! Die!/Friendship (2010)

Hefner (2001)

Ingrid Won't Smile
Summery indie pop on vinyl only debut single from Leeds-based eight piece Milk Milk White Teeth, the latest in the Too Pure's singles club series

Continual Search For Orgins

Seize the Chair (2011)


You Who/It Happens Periodically
Complex-sounding, but fabulous pop on debut single from Sheffield-based band, Seize the Chair

Oh Brother, Oh Sister
Energetic debut single released on the Too Pure Singles Club from Sheffield-based five piece Skeletons and the Empty Pockets, who have risen from the ashes of much acclaimed metal act ThisGirl
