White Wishes - And It's Not You
The enigmatic Nikita Pavlov was born near Saint Petersburg and splits his recording time between his hometown and Berlin. With a couple of EPs and singles of brilliant 80s-influenced, fuzzy indiepop under his belt as White Wishes, things are looking good. We just hope his recent facebook message of "The End", is just a joke. Check out 'And It's Not You'.

The Draymin - Rise Up
You have to admire The Draymin's determination. They've already split once, only to reform for another crack at it. And they're sticking to their guns and making the kind of high tempo, widescreen indie-rock that's so 10 years ago it might as well be on The Music's debut. Still tracks like 'Rise Up' possess a dogged energy and passion that refuses to be written off.

Creepoid - Old Tree
Philadelphia's lo-fi rockers Creepoid have recorded a track for the Shaking Through project, a collaboration between Weathervane Music and WXPN, designed to help break up and coming independent artists. The result is the laid-back stomp of 'Old Tree' which shows off their sense of ramshackle harmony and love of guitar distortion. It's yours for free below.
