Capitol, following on from his critically acclaimed 2019 debut album
‘Dream Noise’, return with their new 7″ single “Weathered / Piano Exit”.
“Weathered” is a song a song about loneliness and the desire for companionship, however fleeting.
my money “Weathered” is a thrilling evolution for Capitol and may be
their best song yet. They’ve set themselves a high bar with Dream Noise
last year, but always satisfying when bands exceed your expectations” >>> FADEAWAYRADIATEFADEAWAYRADIATE
“Piano Exit” is about leaning in to selfishness, and realizing when you’ve leaned in too far.
“Piano Exit is everything you could want from an
indie standpoint. It’s thick, it’s victorious, it’s melancholic, and
it’s most importantly, great. Capitol have found their niche, and it’s
up them to exploit it for all its worth” >>> INDEPENDENT MUSIC NEWS
The 7″ is out now via Kingfisher Bluez (US & Canada) and Meritorio Records (EU & UK).

The song ‘’Amsterdam’’ is the second single from the new album ‘’The
Club Is Open’’ to be released by Meritorio Records on September 18th. ‘’After a trip in Northern Europe, the pop song ‘Amsterdam’ was created. With jangly guitars and power-pop sound, it echoes from the C86 scene. It’s a naive, shambling and gorgeous song about love, Pavement and Amsterdam for you to get hooked on’’.
The LP is available to pre-order now limited to 150 x Black Vinyl and 100 x Piss Yellow Vinyl.Pre-Order The Club Is Open

Fort Not is a Gothenburg based band, emerged out of the fumes of gin and tonic during a west coast summer night. The band, consisting of two friends, Fredrik and Robert, is a musically odd couple that found common ground in catchy pop songs and their equal love for Pavement.
The lead single "Jennie Brown is a sunshine indie-pop gem about lost love and trying to
convince yourself that she’s not that funny anyhow. With its lovely
chorus and driven guitar it gently slaps you right in the face".
Despite that they sometimes flesh-out their sound a bit, the DIY charm is there on every track on the album. ”In the end we just wanted to make a record filled with luscious indie-songs about lost love, new love, no love, loveless love and death”.

Go Get Mum 'Ok Now What' (MER 020)
The new Go Get Mum EP hones in on the catchy jangle-rock of their debut EP Cripers! and extends it with the help of producer Anna Laverty who engineered, produced and mixed the six songs. It features Moving Day; an ode to the mixed emotions of moving, Freeman; a track that questions the need to live life to the max, and Adelaide which is about, well, the Australian city of Adelaide.
