Amaryllis

1. Polish band describing itself: "At first sight it seems that we are an unforgivenable hybride which combines two kinds of music separated from each other by hundreds of years"
This group mixes progresive rock with medieval music in an amazing way as if combining two worlds: one is electric and bass guitar, drums and keyboards, second - lute and female voice. Thus was born the extraordinairy sound, full of expresion, rythm, and might, but not deprived of lyricism and mysticism.
2. Greek Amaryllis band - their music is mixing fresh sounds with traditional Greek music

The Wynd

Two EPs, two dozen live performances, four drummers, numerous broken relationships, radio play in Ireland & the UK and more hangovers than a Gazza-hosted pool-party. A band so mythical, so rarely sighted, that even the band members themselves sometimes wonder if they actually exist. The Wynd have achieved all this and more during their five or so years as a functioning beat combo, although functioning might be too strong a word.

Stuart Murdoch

BACKGROUND: Lead singer of Belle & Sebastian. Scotland’s greatest poet comes from Ayr. That’s probably not all Stuart has in common with Robbie Burns, but I’m damned if I know what else. Both guys I suppose. Stuart moved up to Glasgow at a tender age, just missing the first Scottish post-punk explosion, and having to wait a few years for the next one. The next few years were spent dabbling in all sorts of nonsense; DJing, promoting concerts, working in a record store, selling bacon door-to-door, running marathons...

Polen

There's more than one band under the name Polen: 1- Polen is an electro/rock 4-piece band from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Polen stands up with a new trend of live act full of energy, a fusion between loud guitars and strong synths which makes us compare them with bands like Soulwax, Digitalism, Does It Offend You, Yeah? among others.
Nowadays, the band owns two free distribution EPs: "Metamorphy" (2008) and "Compressor" (2009) and is planning to release a new single "Drop the Line" (2010) next June.
