One for all the incredible women in music – artists, bands, DJs, producers, photographers, publishers, writers, bloggers + everyone involved in representing gals in the industry.
I absolutely love the mix we’ve got going on in the NOU playlist this week! You might have already seen me talking on Insta about how much I love Heart On Your Sleeve by Hushtones – it’s been on repeat in my house all week, and I couldn’t help but squeeze it in between some pure, uncensored rock and roll from The Shivas and The Snuts, where it fits perfectly to start off a cracking midweek playlist with lots of local Manc goodness with a sprinkle of Liverpool sass!
Can you believe it? The week has flown by, and it’s that time again. This playlist starts with possibly one of the greatest intros ever written, and calls for full volume from track one… Let’s call it a warm up for the big Neighbourhood Festival happening this weekend in Manchester (which I’m incredibly excited for!)

I’m not sure whether it’s because I’ve been drumming to a lot of old school Franz Ferdinand this week, but this Tuesday’s playlist is very disco beat heavy + I LOVE IT. I can’t stop dancing around the room to The C33s, Sugarstone and Red Rum Club tracks, so thought I’d share some of the joy!

You know the ‘Don’t Believe in Guilty Pleasures’ playlist drill by now; follow Dave Grohl’s example and ‘if you f**king like something, like it.’
All the tunes you love to love, whether you’re getting ready for a night of dancing on tables at Mojos, or hiding from this cold weather under a blanket, with a takeaway and a glass of wine (I’m getting to the age where this is becoming a difficult choice).

As any true Mancunian knows, sunshine and a blue sky is not to be laughed at, even if it is still only 9 degrees. Seeing as my umbrella hasn’t seen the light of day for over three days now (I’ve definitely just tempted fate and I’m sorry in advance!), I couldn’t resist bringing you some summery catchy chorus festival tunes to match- Hawaiian shirt compulsory. After seeing the incredible TOUTS and their fab support, Inhaler, last night at Night and Day (look out for a little more on this gig soon), I’m on more of a new music run today. We’ve got a big handful of Northern goodness as always!

Now go and enjoy the last of the Saturday sunshine!
Looks like we made its ladies and gents! Friday night has arrived, I’m not working or on call for once (**smug dancing lady emoji x10**) so get your dancing shoes on and grab a cheeky glass of wine (or maybe put your feet up with a nice cuppa tea – no one’s judging here, promise).
Tonight I’m bringing you some incredibly guilty pleasures, including some Northern beauties, and I’m not even sorry.
Hands up, who has Sunday night dread? You? Oh yes and you too? Well it looks like we’re all in this together then aren’t we! How about a shiny new playlist to make us all feel better?
If you’re a follower of the New/Old/Undersold playlists, then you’ll know what it’s all about already. If you’re a first timer, click on the Playlist menu at the top of the page and have a little read about the music you’ll find in this section (you’ll have a great time, honestly).
Tonight I’ve given you some little gems to brighten up your Sunday- we’ve got everything from brand new artists, who I’ve no doubt in my mind will be headlining in no time at all, as well as a shimmy all the way back to the 70s.
Bring on Monday morning – we’ve got this!
Happy Tuesday you lovely lot! It’s not quite Friday, but we’re getting there. In the mean time, let’s have a little midweek singalong to keep us going. We’ve got Iggy Pop, a bit of noughties Yorkshire goodness, and some live Foos – why are you still reading?

“We can be heroes just for one day.”
There are countless magazines and blogs out there dedicated to brand new music, and this is why I wanted to start a playlist section with a little bit of a difference. In the New/Old/Undersold playlists you’ll find amazing bands and artists from every decade; maybe they have been around since before you were born, maybe they released their first tune yesterday. The only thing they have in common, is that you probably won’t find them being played in the Radio 1 Top 40 charts…
This is a place for incredible, must-hear music and artists that might have/have had a huge following in their own genres, but may not be widely known, or even local bands who are just starting out on the gig circuit.
If you know of a band or song that needs to be heard by everyone, get in touch!
