We like to keep up to date with the comings and goings of record label Epitaph for continuously killing it with their rock and alternative releases and their cool LA based sister label ANTI-Records for their broad and resolute approach to their music and their artists.
As Anti puts it; they support 'real artists creating records on their own terms'. ANTI's blanket approach means they boast a huge range of top notch artists - From Simian Mobile Disco to The Black Keys - doing what they love and pushing fresh new sounds.
Touring this month, and serving up a summer vibe, is ANTI's soulful innovator Son Little. Son Little is performing in support of his acclaimed self-titled debut album, released in October last year. You can check out the video for the title track 'Toes' below.
Son Little is an unmistakably an American Rhythm & Blues artist. Born and raised in the states, and having always had an ear for music, he dropped out of school before proceeding to collaborate with the likes of The Roots and RJD2.
It's going to be a big year for Son Little. Catch him as it starts popping off in London on the 18th April at the Lexington.
In contrast, from Epitah, is Plague Vendor. The post-punk/punk-rock (or 'voodoo punk' as they have been dubbed) band kicked off their season at Rough Trade in East London last week.
The band have a sound that is reminiscent of 80s Southern California punk and perform with a contagious turbulent energy. A refreshing change from the comparably innocuous DJ sets we've otherwise been attending.
If you missed the guys this time round, they'll be back at trendy band haven the Old Blue Last on the 21st. Other dates across the UK and Europe available. Just follow the link below.
For all other UK and European dates for Son Little see the ANTI site. and for Plague Vendor check out Epitaph.
