Songs about self loathing, songs about self loving, songs about old friends, new friends, old love/new love/forever love, frustration, sadness, and that feeling, that everything is beautiful and everything is okay.

“What emerges is a track enormously relevant to our generation, the tide of anger and fear and hope breaking through the barriers which normally keep it below the surface (that is, feelings of loneliness, ineptitude, an intense aversion to appearing naive) to make a song uplifting but never glib, and true without ever really understanding why. ” Wake The Deaf Blog


“Politico-punk-PMT-pop with lots of wrong notes and references to hamsters playing recorder.”

Porridge Radio and The Cosmic Sadness, The Mooncups & Mad Kid Library Trap @ Marwoods 27/05/2016

08/04/2016 By James McLarnon

PRStarting as an outlet for Dana’s bedroom / garageband recorded iconoclastic, fragile, frustrated but defiant songs, Porridge Radio seemed to become a more serious concern around the turn of the year after an impressive contribution to a Memorials of Distinction released split EP with West America. Catching the attention of journalist of legend Everett True at an early live performance – he described them as ‘the greatest band’ after witnessing 40 seconds of action, didn’t lead to them relaxing as they’ve gigged relentlessly this year. One of the most promising and original acts in Brighton, right now.

A lot of seasoned observers were very impressed with The Mooncups at our Day Three event back in February, especially considering it was one of their first shows together. They still don’t have any music online so you’ll have to take our word for it but their self-appointed descriptor of Politico-punk-PMT-pop is better than aything we could do.

Mad Kid Library Trap sounds like someone recorded themselves immediately after being in solitary confinement for 6 months with nothing but an A4 pad of acid for company. Imagine Atlas Sound at it’s loosest, trying to recreate the vibe of Trout Mask Replica. Their soundcloud puts the ‘range’ in deranged. Spectacular.
