We’re Not Alone – Louis London

‘Louis London’ are certainly a favourite here at Slumped because not only do they produce exceptional music, but they are also genuinely lovely blokes. Having initially covered their single ‘Hardly Hear You’ at the end of last year, front-man Ed Saloman was nice enough to give Slumped his time to discuss the Australian music scene […]

Pro Vita – Bent

Having already touched on the wonderful world of Australian surf-pop via March’s ‘Dune Rats’ review, today we delve a little deeper and paddle out into the waters of Queensland outfit ‘Pro Vita’. The ‘self managed and home recorded’ Indie foursome may be a little rough around the edges but like a greasy kebab or ripped […]

When We Were Small – Untied

Because we can’t all exude the happiness of an American news anchor day-in, day-out, today’s track is something a little more sombre than usual. Feel free to cry away all those missed opportunities and broken dreams as you listen, I know I did. When We Were Small are an earthy Indie-pop act from the little […]

Slumped Mix Tape Three – Free Download

I know that near enough two weeks without an entry is close to unforgivable, so I shall do the best I can to redeem myself. Although it only seems like yesterday since SIAC2, May has been full to the brim with exciting and, more importantly, free music. To celebrate such a fine month, allow me […]

Mausi – Move

After spending quite some time focussing on Australian shores, today we finally move back to the UK and collapse exhausted into the warm arms of Newcastle-based quartet ‘Mausi’. Having gained much attention through their song ‘Sol’ last year, Mausi were on many people’s look-out lists for 2013 and with their new track ‘Move’, they are […]

Young Maverick – Janitor

Mondays are tough for everyone. For the employed it’s an early morning, a long week ahead and a return to the daily grind. For the unemployed, it’s a reminder of how useless you are, a few hours of truly painful midday television and another day spent fixated on job vacancies that you either a. don’t […]

ON AN ON – The Hunter

This week London plays host to ON AN ON ahead of their debut album release early next month. ‘Give In’ will become the first full-length from the Chicago-based trio who were formed from the ashes of indie-pop outfit Scattered Trees, and from what we’ve heard so far, it’s going to be a good one. If […]

The 1975 – Chocolate

As indie music spreads ,plague-like, throughout the world spreading it’s tales of depressive sexual experiences and self-esteem issues, there is no doubt that there is one location that continues to set the standard for the entire genre. The north of England has a seemingly endless production line of great indie-pop; The Arctic Monkeys, The Little […]

Pear Shape – Cabin Fever

The brilliant thing about the sun slowly peaking its way through the clouds and the ice and snow gently removing itself from our pavements is that the first glimpses of summer are already here. As expected, the change in the weather has people reaching for the New Navy, Vampire Weekend and whatever other summer-laced indie […]

Meet; Louis London

Following up on yesterdays track ‘Hardly Hear You’ by Sydney-based five-piece Louis London, lead singer Ed Saloman was good enough to take time out of his busy schedule to talk to Slumped In A Corner about ambitions, inspirations and the Triple J Unearthed revolution. Hi Ed, congratulations on the recent release of your EP ‘On […]
