our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new EP from The Battery Farm
self-proclaimed “gutter punks” of Manchester, The Battery Farm have been tearing up stages for a few years now, with their energetic sets, driving tunes and formidable stage presence – they’re absolutely amazing live, every time we’ve caught them we’ve been blown away
the new EP features some of their previous singles this year, such as “Roy Keane Isn’t Real” and “When The Whip Goes Crack” – they toe the line between serious and having a laugh so well with huge, anthemic choruses and melodic and grungy build ups, these are definitely ones to watch on the Manchester scene.
one of our favourites off the new EP is “I’ve Never Been To Gorton” – a proper tongue-in-cheek tune about the different areas of Manchester, with lovely guitar melodies throughout and huge choruses lead singer Ben’s vocal sounds great on this too, showing his prowess as a vocalist – well worth a listen

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from Scatterchild “Tough Love”!
we’ve been a fan of Scatterchild for a while now, with their beautiful piano melodies, lovely soundscapes, Jay’s fantastic vocal ability and top songwriting this new song is yet another in a long line of great releases!
a more touching subject with this song, it deals with the harder parts of a relationship and the emotion conveyed in this track is sublime building from the start, it really pushes through the feelings that they’re trying to portray and as it travels through the track, it builds up and up til the end where it explodes into a massive outburst of energy and raw feeling! what a tune!
our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from Bonfire Tide – “Romance Isn’t Dead”
the debut single from the Manchester-based outfit, this is a real indication of what’s to come from them! a beautifully put-together track, reminiscent of early 2000’s indie/folk nostalgia, Bonfire Tide have created a lovely soundscape for this track with waving guitars, almost angelic vocals and a driving rhythm. definitely one to check out!
our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from Katie O’Malley “Devil’s Got A Hold”
we’ve known Katie for a long time now and with every release she only gets better and better! we loved the last few singles especially “Wild West” and “Taste The Dirt” and we’re absolutely blown away by how good this new tune is!
blending grungy, bluesy rock with her familiar country-esque singer-songwriter vibe, Katie and her band create a lovely gloomy atmosphere akin to PJ Harvey and Stevie Nicks the guitar work in this is absolutely gorgeous and Katie’s vocal sounds absolutely out of this world. the eruption into the chorus is massive – organs throughout are just lush, and it all fits perfectly together to give you a full on 70’s witchy nostalgia whilst maintaining that gorgeous sound that we’ve heard with all of Katie’s songs lately!

absolutely top tune – lovely distortion, noise, chaos with so much going on.. modern grungy-punk anthems with melodic riffs, feedback, Ru’s amazing and powerful, direct vocals.. a complete tune! love the atmosphere of the outro with the chorusy guitar and that little distorted tone.. just lush!

the fourth single from the Manchester-based songwriter, the single came out today! it’s a lovely reflective ballad about supporting a loved one throughout the trials and tribulations of the world out there hence the title!
the song is truly authentic and really gives you an insight into Millie’s world – each component of the track works so well, ranging from the piano melody to the guitar riffs throughout, and then Millie’s vocal is simply superb on this, with a lovely warm and inviting tone that is proper lush.
