23Mystic Braves, Logan's CloseSneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
A mirage of shimmering guitars, stadium-sized castanets and herculean drumming, Mystic Braves’ desert psychedelia is descending on Sneaky Pete’s.

After soaking in the acclaim of third LP Days Of Yesteryear – a collection strewn with twanging spread chords so grand you expect a cowboy to appear – their live shows are coolly delivered, knee-pulsing jams.

Reversing back in time to the trippy haze of the 70s, in May, Mystic Braves will take you there.

30Heaters, Joshua GraySneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
One of the best live bands we hosted in 2016 are back with a new record.

Heaters, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, have a spacey, driving take on West Coast psych rock. Tapping into both the twang of their ’60s garage compatriots and building their own brand of expansive, cosmic swells, Pitchfork calls the band “catchy and kinetic,” noting their “energy and hook writing are clearly on point.” Combining a seemingly constant output of “reverb-coated, fuzz-studded, hard-driven garage psych” with a kaleidoscopic, hip-shaking live set, Heaters are quickly forging something new and exciting.

3Firecracker Recordings 'Heal Yourself & Move' #9 with Whodamanny, House Of TrapsSneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
In an era when dance music gets weird as hell, Whodamanny, AKA Raffaele Arcella, still cuts an odd figure. The Neapolitan is a key player in the Early Sounds Recordings collective and one of the founders of the Periodica Records. He’s also half of The Normalmen and one third of The Mystic Jungle Tribe. He’s spent a great deal of time experimenting with phase distortion synthesizers made by Casio and on several kinds of toy keyboards creating a really weird fusion between cosmic sounds, proto-house, jazz-funk and electronica. The results can be heard best on 2016’s Cosmic Morphology album on Periodica and on his Primaria Industria opus our own Unthank label.

6Guadalupe PlataSneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
“Our name comes from our hometown’s patron, the Virgin of Guadalupe —she protects us as we play the devil’s music,” say the members of Guadalupe Plata, with not a little bit of hopefulness.

Rising up from the town of Úbeda, deep in Andalusia near Jaén, Guadalupe Plata have become legends for their provocative, deeply affecting blues and boogie music, creating a psychedelic landscape that is as darkly surrealistic as it is infectious.

Guadalupe Plata — Pedro de Dios (guitar and voice), Carlos Jimena (drums), and Paco Luis Martos (bass, contrabalde, and guitar) — have met wide success with a string of recordings and constant touring in Spain and Portugal where they have become well known stars, even as they continue to play every sort of venue imaginable, from backyards to bordellos, giant music festivals, dirty bars, and extravagant night clubs. This is a no nonsense band, famous for their stripped-down sound and primitive equipment, most notably a washtub bass built with parts taken from the local graveyard and a chainsaw.

Mojo magazine has called them “culturally rich and instantly identifiable as excellent.”

Him from Hot Chip and The 2 Bears, DJing all night long.

A brilliant, brilliant DJ, a king of good time positive vibes across genres, we’ve waited years to host Joe. Who else could have released records on DFA, Moshi Moshi and Domino? He’s the definition of indie-dance done right, and an inspiration for a generation of party-starters.

A leading member of indie/soul/dance group Hot Chip, half of fun-loving house duo 2 Bears, head of his own forward-thinking label Greco Roman (first home to Disclosure amongst others), and a successful solo producer and remix artist in his own right, with a cracking new album ‘Electric Lines’ just out, a great follow up to past singles ‘Gabriel’ and ‘Taking Over’.

9Feast's 5th Birthday - Noah Noah, Posable Action FiguresSneaky Pete's

Feastival is Feast's annual 'blog party' celebrating their fifth birthday. They like lots of new music, especially from Edinburgh and write about some of the most exciting music being created across the city. For this year's birthday party they are showcasing two bands who have great sound.

Taking influence from major and local bands – such as Chrvches, Fatherson, Prides, Biffy Clyro and The Killers – They will be launching their new single.

Posable Action Figures have already picked up airplay on Radio 1 for their recent single 'Cut', been tipped as one of, Vic Galloway of BBC Radio Scotland's bands to watch in 2017 as well as being invited to start the year with a performance on STV. With a self-titled debut E.P. under their belt that was described as "marvellous" by The Scotsman and "Something a little bit special… an EP of the highest quality" by Netsounds, Posable Action Figures have developed a reputation for catchy punchy tunes paired with an explosive live show. Regular air play through 2016 and a jam packed gig schedule helped the band build an enthusiastic fan base.

10Mannequin PussySneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Brevity is among Mannequin Pussy’s strengths, but a controlled volatility is the Philadelphia quartet’s calling card. The mood of any given song can zap with a disconcerting swiftness from the playful to the chaotic. This dynamic persists on record and on stage.

Mannequin Pussy’s dense towers of noise are underlined by Marisa Dabice’s evocative and passionate lyrical poetry. On their latest LP ‘Romantic’, she’s attempting to figure out what romance means in the 21st century. Less about the gooey stuff and more about everything that surrounds love — the triumphs, the failures and how we transform from the mess of it all. Mostly, it’s just a reminder to love someone. We love them.

14Witness presents LuckyMe: Suicideyear, Mike Slott, The BlessingsSneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Together for one night: two generations of LuckyMe affiliated artists who each took hip hop apart and put it back together in weird and startling new shapes: ethereal yet percussive productions that are leave you both clear-eyed and woozy.

Mike Slott is a founding member of LuckyMe, now living in New York City, and one of the first artists to release on the label in a run that went Hudson Mohawke / Mike Slott / Machinedrum / Lunice / Jacques Greene.

Suicideyear, who’s released on Brodinski’s 'Bromance' label and OneohTrix Point Never’s 'Software' has produced for Yung Lean and became popular through tear-stained edits of tracks by Danny Brown, Three Six Mafia, The Pack & Main Attrakionz.

23Fat Goth, Hagana, Fatalists Sneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Hailing from Dundee the three piece rock band Fat Goth have risen from underdogs to fan favourites for rock enthusiasts who want proper meaty, ball hair rising rock from “three chums with a shared enthusiasm for interesting and entertaining rock music". They have been on Kerrang's legendary Pandora strip twice and featured in the magazine and to add to this have had stellar reviews from Rock Sound, Q, Metal Hammer, The Skinny and Drowned in Sound that are amongst those who’ve highlighted the band’s humorous, brazen style. This attention and praise led them to be nominated for a Scottish Alternative Music Award in 2013 and 2014.

Coming back after a break from the heady heights of fame and (mis)fortune their new album 'Enorm!' came out last month which has seen the band turn away from the tongue-n-cheek, don't care attitude that brought fans heavy rock music with sinister humour. Now Fat Goth's ire has turned towards the political and social mess we currently all find ourselves in. “We live in a world where sociopolitical discourse, injustice and prejudices are rife and appear to increase on a daily basis, resulting in such dire circumstances becoming ‘the norm’ and subsequent headlines being met with continual indifference and fatigue,” frontman Stewart states. They get this anger and frustration into 30 minutes of fast-paced, powerful and dynamic rock.
