This month's HDIF Presents is a pre-Indietracks special, with bands and DJs who are either booked to play the festival or are planning to gatecrash it!
The Bobby McGees
Notorious anti-folk troupe from Brighton, who blur the line between pop and performance poetry, with tunes informed as much by Ivor Cutler as the long line of ukulele-touting indiepopsters. Their debut album, "L'Appropriation Bourgoisie de la Bobby McGee's", has just come out on Cherryade records.
Pocketbooks are a pop band from London, combining melodic boy/girl harmonies, spiralling guitars and delicate piano lines. Expect a sprinkling of dazzling 60s soul alongside some sparkling indiepop charm! Their debut album, "Flight Paths", will finally be out by the time of this show.
Stars of the recent San Francisco Popfest, this new band from Copenhagen play elegant, literate guitar pop in the vein of The Smiths, Felt and Gene. Their debut album, on Matinee Recordings, is out now.
Moustache Of Insanity
A duo comprising a Swede and an Australian, Moustache Of Insanity play what indie-mp3 call ”a daft combination of twee bedroom pop and the Moldy Peaches”. We hear the wry pop of Jens Lekman and the Salty Pirates, and a whole bundle of fun.
Andrew Laidlaw (Lucky Soul)
Krister Bladh (Heaven Is Above Your Head/A Smile And A Ribbon)
