A five piece from London, The Madrigals make music that is influenced by traditional English folk music but sounds more like Electrelene and Sufjan Stevens. "Every song is a new and exciting adventure with banjos being swapped for violins, guitars for xylophones and accordians and it is all very exciting," said Tasty Zine, which sounds good to us.
A French six piece based in London, Electrophönvintage pen swoonsome indie pop songs that recall the Go-Betweens and the recent sound of young Sweden.
The Puncture Repair Kit
A six piece from Cambridge, The Puncture Repair Kit play joyous indie folk that crams in nods to Gorky's, The Delgados and Belle & Sebastian. "The best thing to come out of Cambridge since homosexuality," reckons Paul Heaton.
Rising from the ashes of former HDIF Presents stars, The Steadies, who recalled the hazy folk of Nick Drake and The Clientele, London trio Lost Left are a darker, more energetic affair. They say they "draw on rambles in the Edale peaks and an admiration for greyhound dogs of the mid-1980s", and are so new they haven't set up a MySpace page yet. This is their debut gig.
