Cocteau Twins - Persephone

They were formed in Grangemouth by Robin Guthrie (guitars, drum machine) and Will Heggie (bass), adding Elizabeth Fraser (vocals) in 1981 and replacing Heggie with multi-instrumentalist Simon Raymonde in 1983. The group has earned critical praise for their distinctive ethereal sound and the soprano vocals of Fraser, whose lyrics often abandon recognisable language.They pioneered the 1980s alternative rock subgenre of dream pop.

Ouzo Bazooka - 1001 Nights

Ouzo Bazooka was formed in Tel Aviv by Uri Brauner Kinrot, who grew up on the sunny shores of the mediterranean sea and has been active in the music scene for over a decade, shaping the sound of influential local groups as well as the critically acclaimed mediterranean surf band Boom Pam (currently collaborating with Turkish psychedelic-folk legend Selda Bağcan). ​ Tel Aviv’s cultural diversity served as the perfect backdrop for Ouzo Bazooka’s formation and the maturing of their style; an exotic blend of middle eastern sounds and scales, moulded together with fuzzed psychedelic surf rock and garage. Following the release of their acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2014, the band was embraced by the local crowd and became somewhat of a local phenomena. It was only a matter of time before their sounds reached the European front and after a succession of high profile festival appearances, followed by two stellar releases, the media, critics and the international crowd took notice - the band’s position as the ambassadors of a new middle eastern rock sound was cemented.

Rupa - Aaj Shanibar

The record may be just four tracks long and released on an obscure German label (Ovular), but it has an ambitious title: Disco Jazz. Arguably, no work of art since Tolstoy’s War and Peace has branded itself with quite as much chutzpah. Bursting with the energy synonymous with disco but nuanced with long jazzy instrumental segments and sophisticated drum breaks, the music does manage to both intrigue the mind and get the body moving.
