Veronica Falls

Hark back to sunnier times, with Veronica Falls performing at Northampton Square bandstand this summer. They released their debut LP on Bella Union this year and here they are with a coupla songs from it….

 

Forest Fire

New Yorkers Forest Fire swung by Arnold Circus bandstand in early December to play us a few jams from their latest record. Have a watch and listen below:

 

The Landshapes

We were absolutely delighted to have The Landshapeson bandstand busking. It was pretty chilly under Arnold Circus, but the drizzle held off until just after we finished. It was a great treat – see for yourselves:

The Deer Tracks

Power! With some fluke luck we finally figured out how to turn the power on at Northampton Square bandstand, and lucky for us it meant we could watch The Deer Tracks perform us some dreamy songs. Wonderful.

 

Big Deal

On Halloween weekend Big Deal treated us to an autumnal set in Northampton Square bandstand. You can see the dark was looming even in the early afternoon, as the year winds to a close… watch a few videos from the busk below:

Peggy Sue

We really love Peggy Sue. If they were a type of food, they’d be a juicy hamburger on a podium surrounded by classy felines. Or something. Here are a few videos from the summer:

 

Sea of Bees

Jules and Amber, aka Sea Of Bees, treated us to their last UK performance in a incredibly triumphant year of touring in support of debut record ‘Song For The Ravens’, released this year in the UK by Heavenly Records. The duo had the 300 strong audience listening attentively, and they undoubtedly walked away with some new fans at the end of the set (which included a spectacular rendition of Beyonce’s Single Ladies no less).

This is one of our favourite busks we’ve ever had the pleasure of putting on. Lots of love to Sea of Bees.
