RouteNote sessions go psychedelic with a folk twinge

Drakes Island popped in to the Parlour Studio for a session like no other. The way that they meld gorgeous traditional indie and folk sounds with a modern, trippy feel to it made this session beautifully unique.

From the southwest, the band is made up of lead guitarist Jamie Yost, bassist Olly Parker, drummer Matthew Gordon Price and band leader Fergus Tanner. The group released their first single in February, Only Passing Through, and it was a treat to get them in to play that and 2 other tracks for the session.

Melt your face off with this monster session from King Creature!

Get your metal heads on because this session kicked ass. Cornwall heavy rockers King Creature joined us in the Parlour for a blinding 3 track set.

The lads of King Creature have taken their music worldwide playing in China, the US and elsewhere. They’ve played with Motörhead, Megadeth and many other metal legends proving these guys are a force to be reckoned with with riffs your ears will be begging for more of.

Boots of Spanish Leather never sounded better than in this session


From the irrefutable soul of his beautiful Bob Dylan cover to his more alternative roots in his originals. Sam Varlow’s RouteNote Session is a majestic ride through his mind.

Sam and his band prove their versatility through 3 tracks of smooth gold filtering through your ears. Lay back and enjoy this tasty session.
