Animal Kingdom - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Animal Kingdom
"Achingly beautiful celestial indie...will have Sigur Ros quivering with envy." -- NME

Animal Kingdom are Richard Sauberlich (Vocals/Guitar/Piano), Hamish Crombie (Bass), Geoff Lea (Drums). Based in leafy North London the band have been together since July 2008.

Their 2009 debut album 'Signs and Wonders' was recorded in Seattle with producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes,The Shins) and introduced people to their unique world-view.

The first single was the haunting "Chalk Stars" a song that xfm's John Kennedy made his "Record of the Year" and was described by Zane Lowe as a "stunning piece of music." Second single 'Tin Man' was an iTunes Single of the Week and iTunes US named them Best New Alternative Act.

Support tours with Vampire Weekend, Band of Horses, Snow Patrol and Silversun Pickups followed, and saw the band developing a loyal live fan-base. The Fly Magazine going as far as to say that "their live presence is a resounding and cinematically cosmic experience."

The band write and rehearse in an old church in North London and have just completed their second album -- with Bat For Lashes/Everything Everything producer David Kosten.

The first single to be taken from their new album will be "Strange Attractor."
The Neighbourhood - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Neighbourhood
"Buzz-band is a term that has been fluttering around the Internet for quite some time now. It's meaning is pretty straightforward: it is an underground indie band, formerly unknown, that comes out with a single worthy of Internet hype. That is why I disagree with labeling the recent indie Internet phenom, The Neighbourhood, as buzzworthy; they are clearly destined for so much more.

The band is also exceptionally mysterious. It's a quintet based out of LA, with Rutherford as the frontman. However, I couldn't tell you who plays what instrument. Their website doesn't even have any biographical information. The shroud of mystery surrounding them is part of the reason people like them so much, they're not out there for fame and glory—yet—they're just producing great tracks, (and all of these tracks are available FREE online…just keep reading). Their mysteriousness also perfectly parallels with the way they blend the genres of rock, R&B, and folk in a way only an indie band can.

Their 5-track EP is available for free download on their website. All the tracks are well worth listening to again and again." --Candor News
