Melting Vinyl presents a special triple bill of Indie luminaries:


With the release of their self-titled debut album on Shelflife Records in 2014, The Luxembourg Signal quickly attracted a loyal following among fans of dream pop/indie pop music, and received enthusiastic reviews for their pop sensibilities, angelic vocals and lush soundscapes.

Now, for their third LP, the transatlantic group based in London, Los Angeles and San Diego, once again returned to the studio with engineer Mark Rains and have produced the highly anticipated The Long Now (Shelflife/Spinout Nuggets), a 10 song album that imagines a blurred horizon that lies between light and dark, and the fleeting nature of all that we hold.


Jetstream Pony are based in Brighton and Croydon UK, and named after a retired racing greyhound, now called Jenna.

The band features Beth Arzy (The Luxembourg Signal, Lightning in a Twilight Hour, Trembling Blue Stars) on vocals, Shaun Charman (The Wedding Present, The Popguns) on guitar, Kerry Boettcher (Turbocat) on bass and Hannes Mueller (The BV’s) on drums.

JSP had a self-titled debut studio album on KUS and Shelflife Records in May 2020. The album received fantastic reviews, selling out two pressings before being reissued by Spinout Nuggets in the Autumn and reaching many best-of-year lists.

After two more sold out singles, mini-album “Misplaced Words” arrived in Dec 2021. The album develops the sound from the debut, with the balance between indie-pop and something darker intact. Beth’s wonderful voice and twelve string guitar are underpinned by heavy bass, harmonies sometimes by a two drummer rhythm section. The band celebrated 2022 with gigs in Germany, France, Spain and Portugal as well as the UK, with new material and more gigs planned for later this year.

Australia’s Even As We Speak – are an exploding supernova of contradictions, lighting up the indie pop night sky, whilst raining down destructive particles and distorting space and time with their chaotic and remote brilliance. A beloved Sarah Records band, they carved a sparkling pathway through the twee-scape of the early 90’s with their pop roller-coaster ride Feral Pop Frenzy.
