Gorgeous twee indie-pop, like squeezing out a tube of shitpaste. Long dormant Stretchheads members collide with Idlewild guitarist and actively seek the slice of Jesus Lizard with the groove of Helmet. Allegedly ending up like Jack 'O' Nuts. Signed by Mogwai for a bet to Rock Action Records of Glasgow. Expect electro remixes by Errors in return for snuff video footage of their demise. www.desalvo.co.uk www.rock-action.co.uk

Their debut is due for release early 2010 and first single "1000 Feet" will be released across the world on August 31st 2009.
Fitting to its name, the San Francisco quartet Enablers writes songs that are equally manipulative and encouraging to our darkest desires. The band made up of journeyman veterans of Swans, Tarnation, Nice Strong Arm and Toiling Midgets merges dramatic and flowing melodic soundscapes -- of which SF Gate calls "possibly the world's best power trio" -- with the visceral spoken narratives of underground literary veteran Pete Simonelli.
