Introducing: Midnight Moon Theater

We first discovered Midnight Moon Theater (yes, in this instance it is spelled correctly) many moons ago in the hot summer heat of a Battle of the Bands in a strange underground arts and music venue called Super Deluxe. Existing underneath the hustle and bustle of the trendy Roppongi streets in Japan, Super Deluxe hosts some the trendiest and most obscure acts in the land and that Battle of the Bands was no exception.

We first discovered The FB Pocket Orchestra playing in a quaint country pub called The White Buck out in the New Forest.

Introducing: Crying Day Care Choir

Crying Day Care Choir might have a somewhat suspicious name if we’re brutally honest, but we assure you that it’s not nearly as strange as it sounds. This actually refers to the concept that a group of crying children are actually capable of creating musical harmony. This interesting concept is picked up by a vibrant and uplifting Swedish trio who are some of the hardest working musicians on the Swedish folk scene today.
