Jonquil @ O2 Academy Oxford – 25/05/12

Homecoming gigs can be a funny thing – under the right circumstances they feel positively victorious, all wall-to-wall smiles and high-fives, both metaphorical and physical. Sometimes however, they can feel strange to the uninitiated, like an in-joke between friends who have no intention of sharing.

Blessing Force Bonanza Giveaway!

What’s the best thing you’ve ever won at a Christmas tombola? I remember being in primary school and winning the seductive St Benedict Biscop Xmas Hamper! Even as a 10 year old I was disapointed. Marmalade and Bucks Fizz, the little CoE school may as well have took a piss in my size 3 Hush Puppies. Anyway, here is a real Christmas gift to get excited about! Blessing Force will unleash a tirade on exclusive prizes onto one lucky ticket holder. Check out the list of prizes below.

Kitsune Release 12th Mixtape

Watch the band perform their new single, ‘We Are Young’, here.

Trophy Wife – BRUXISM EP

Oxford’s most exciting indie export of the moment, Trophy Wife are breaking boundaries while creating tunes get your heart pumping and you circulate in your mind for days. At it’s heart fun and danceable too, however it features elements of experimentation that we know and love in Oxford’s music scene; constantly developing into something creative but at the same time showing some amazing song writing talent.
