Welcome return to HDIF for Jyoti Mishra, AKA White Town, who’s best known for his 1997 Number One hit, “Your Woman”. Expect a mixture of acoustic and electronic songs and, in Jyoti’s own words, “my songs are all intensely personal, all autobiographical so every gig is something of a confessional.”
A Fine Day For Sailing
An indiepop group from Exeter recently relocated to London, A Fine Day For Sailing cite Belle and Sebastian, the Beach Boys, Television Personalities and Orange Juice.as influences. Their ranks contain a couple of the now disbanded Gresham Flyers.
A brand new trio fron London, Fever Dream play superb feedback-drenched dreampop in the vein of early Jesus And Mary Chain, Magazine and Sonic Youth.
A three piece from London, Frozy play adorable lo-fi pop. Or as they say: “we’re a DIY type pop band with occasional noise. Favourite bands are Jonathan Richman, Velvet Underground, Wave Pictures, Herman Dune, Jens Lekman and all that flim flam. We’ve supported the Bundles, Jeffrey Lewis, and played with Kimya Dawson a number of times, as well as organising a tour all over Europe.”

I’m very proud of ‘Monopole.’ It was a huge struggle to get it finished, through separation/divorce, horrible family illnesses and all the subsequent fall-out those events entail.
But now it’s done and my baby is out there in the world. Please take care of it and give it hugs.
