During our recent BBC Introducing Week, 6 Music recorded session tracks by eight upcoming bands - all of whom have been championed by the national BBC Introducing network. There was only enough airtime to broadcast two or three tracks from each act, so here are the full sessions from two of my particular favourites who we've been championing on my 6 Music Introducing show: Fresh On The Net.
First up, Steve Lamacq picked ALLO DARLIN to record tracks at Maida Vale for his Monday show. Lammo's keen ear for a band on their way to greatness singled out this fast-rising London four-piece fronted by Elizabeth Morris, who've recently signed to Fortuna Pop records, home of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and The Tender Trap among others.
Take a listen, and you'll hear why.
Next up, recorded live on the Marc Riley show, it's Devon-born Joe Steer fronting his brilliant BROADCAST 2000 outfit. Although Joe played pretty much everything on the self titled debut album himself, live he performs accompanied by his own acoustic guitar plus a string trio, virtuoso glockenspiel, a young man beating the bejasus out of the Smallest Snare Drum In The World and Louise Golbey (no less) on backing vocals.
Check these tracks out, they're amazing:
