Our little ol' label got a huge half-page spread in the Grimsby Telegraph. Why? Because we're ace and also because our first two singles include two Grimbarians. Yeah! Read the article online

Some great things that have been written about our records recently:

Pete Green

Pete Green shares a vulnerable tremble in his voice like sweet old Graham Coxon, and also like El Coxo is fond of acoustic fumblings and fragile vocals dealing along the general theme of self-doubt and angst. In other words, pretty much guaranteed to make us swoon. - This is fake DIY

First thing we would do on ever achieving high office would be to issue a diktat (we've already typed it, just in case there's an imminent putsch that could be taken advantage of) that 99 in a hundred acoustic singer / songwriters should be immediately culled, or at the very least shunted out to permanent busking pastures. Yet pete green is the exception, the one-man band who should be saved for the nation. - In Love with these times, in spite of these times

In more ways than one - as this is a fine little single. If you wanna hear some fun and quirky pop folk - look no further. - Lost Music 

Pocketbooks

'Cross The Line' is a top quality piece of pop music. Coming over like a Londoncentric version of Belle and Sebastian with tales of lost oyster cards and the 9-to-5 work grind set against a day dreamers need to escape. The song has a great melody and some rather fine boy then girl vocals from Andy and Emma. - Lost Music 

It is my opinion that Pocketbooks are just about the best group in England at this time, and ‘Cross the Line’ does nothing to dispel this. Everything about Pocketbooks is perfect, from the obvious world-weariness to the pretty, pretty music, to Emma Hall’s voice. ... I hope Pocketbooks get the recognition they deserve, but it a perverse way I want them to be our secret forever, because they’re very much our band. And those don’t come along too often. - Tasty Fanzine
