Just in time for the next return of Doctor Who from his travels, the debut album from a rock band of universal proportions, when it comes to sound tracking intergalactic battles with sky punching tunes; Bad Wolf.

'False Conscience is a sci fi opera fusion of alternative rock n roll anthems which veer between Muse, Mansun, The Manics and Metallica (via beautiful balladary and choirs) like an out of control punk space ship.

Rather than try to review it (in short, “magnificent”), why not download and discover it for free before The Doctor returns… 

'False Conscience' - free or pay whatever you want http://ukbadwolf.bandcamp.com/album/false-conscience also available on iTunes.

The London band have won an international underground following through previous releases, global stream shows and engaging live gigs.

Having made a huge impression with their debut appearance at Europe’s biggest new music festival, The Great Escape, recently, Bad Wolf utterly stormed The Camden Crawl. More shows being confirmed for Autumn onwards.

Jack White on Meg White’s kick drum: “A big lesson I learned in the White Stripes: Meg’s kick drum was the bass guitar. Take a song like ‘Psycho Killer’ by Talking Heads. Bum bum bum bum bum bum buh-buh-bum… that could just as easily be a drum beat…” (source: Rolling Stone Magazine)

Zoom London scene queen, Jean Genie Graham (DJ, promoter, radio presenter, creator/host of Panda Power! events, an ArtBeat ring leader and formerly assistant to John Kennedy of Xfm Radio) has proved herself a star scout and music guru in her own right.
Her life is so immersed in a love of music, that JG radiates sun shine. Blessed by a wealth of influences and inspirations, her own compositions were always going to be good, but with her poetic words, melodically hooky  tunes and sweet voice, performing as Jean Genie’s Massive Hugs, she is so much more than that.
I am priviledged to have heard demos, and can’t wait for you to hear them to. In the mean time, get a good idea from live appearances. Keep an eye on https://www.facebook.com/jeangeniesmassivehugs

'Tell me Tell me' by PAUL ORWELL ... a gifted pop musician & much talented songwriter with style. Reincarnated from the 60s (the dark, psychedelic part). He swings most of his time now in London…

After his debut EP last year (SoundCloud link below) Paul Orwell delivers another catchy 60s organ driven pearl…  poptastic ! 

Here are more Orwell tracks. They will color your summer !…

Good call. Paul Orwell is definitely one of the best new names of the year.
