    ST4

    downdime
    downdime are a loud pop band from Leeds consisting of four friends, Ged, Liz, Ste and Eddy. The feel of their releases ranges from boisterous (“Hate The Morning”) to curative (“Lessons”). The brawl between Ged’s relentless, fuzzy riffs and Liz’s synth loop bursts maintains downdime’s inviting sound. Back in January 2009 downdime made their debut LP release on Squirrel Records. This snappy release offers 30 minutes of raw, canny pop. Copies are available at SquirrelRecords.co.uk. 

    Knowing Too Much
    To complete the circuit, Ian Schultz, the friend who introduced me to downdime at IndieTracks 2010 shall be djing.

    We at Sleeping Today cannot contain ourselves- downdime alongside The School, Electric Sugar Children and (((oh dear’s going to be barmy! Be seeing you later, Sleeping Today #4.

    Get your ticket here!

    ST3 - September’s not so far away.

    To the locals and wayward passerby’s of Cambridge,

    September 11th 2010 @ Man on the Moon, 2 Norfolk Street, Cambridge.
    The Hardy Boys // Mascot Fight // The Sound Of Pop Art // Tiger, Tiger, Panther, Fox!

    Flyer ST3

    The Hardy Boys
    Writing under the influence of A Guy Called Gerald, McCarthy and The Pastels, Johnny White and David McArthur write genuine, spry, pulsating jangle pop tracks. Notably, a single released on Stella Five label in 1989, which finds itself today to a be highly sought after, quintessential indie pop release. Having not toured extensively since 1990, Greenock’s Hardy Boys have resurfaced with an au courant EP, “Under the Piccadily Clock” [Bubblegum Records]. We’re so pleased that this release roughly accompanies ST3… This set shall truly portray a panoptic chunk of indie history. 

    Oh- Oh! “Under the Piccadily Clock“‘s out on 3rd September 2010… You can pre-order now!
