Jasper’s New Music Takeaway // Wons Phreely / Toby / Tamu Massif / Goan Dogs / Krusoe


Artist / Band Name – Wons Phreely

Latest Release –

Release Date – NOW

The Word – Indie rocker who recently relocated to the City Of Angels, has a sound that’s akin to The National frontman, Matt Berninger’s side project EL VY, and who we could well be seeing play Roy Orbison in a biopic film in the next few years. Nice gig that’ll be.

The Word – Chilled & summery synths with a bit of Gold Panda/ Flume type experimental electronic vibe, using chopped up, manipulated vocals more like another instrument than well, a vocal. Intriguing stuff.

Artist / Band Name – Tamu Massif

Latest Release –

Release Date – NOW with a new E.P. in the works for later in the year

The Word – More laid back, summer vibes next up from singer songwriter Tamu Massif. Again it’s a tad experimental, but with more of a pop base, with off kilter synths and beats that sit well alongside the two acts he’s already been supporting live, The Japanese House & C Duncan.

Artist / Band Name – Goan Dogs

Latest Release –

Release Date – NOW (On Soundcloud)

The Word – Elbow’s Guy Garvey said that he loves indie pop 5 piece Goan Dogs calling them ‘Bristol’s Finest’. And I think I can stop right there, cos whatever Guy Garvey says I’d more than happily go along with- just for the record though, even before I read that quote I too thought they were pretty ace too…

Artist / Band Name – Krusoe

Latest Release –

Release Date – NOW with his debut E.P., Give Up The Coast, to follow soon

The Word – Retro psych pop from our last artist for the day, and in fact for a week or so (I’m off on hols next week- YAAAAAYYYY), that recalls the sounds of bands like Doves- who I ruddy loved- back in the day. His name’s Krusoe, he was born in London, then moved to Paris, then onto Berlin, then to Belgrade and is now back in Oxford. They all come back….

Right, as I just said I’m off for a week now so you guys have got a bit of a break but rest assured I’ll be back, sort of refreshed, hopefully, real soon.
