Since the birth of the label in 1997, FatCat has always had a solid engagement with material sent to us as demos. Where numerous labels will throw demos straight into the trash unopened, at FatCat we've always made an effort to listen and reply to every demo received. Numerous FatCat artists have been picked up having been discovered in this way (including Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, David Karsten Daniels, Welcome, Odonis Odonis, Get Back Guinozzi!, Silje Nes, Ensemble, Xinlisupreme, Songs Of Green Pheasant, Janek Schaefer - to name just a few), and it has always been really exciting to unexpectedly discover something great in this way. Just as when we started, this philosophy of keeping an ear to the ground and attempting to support good new creativity remains at the core of what we do. Read More


All demos received by FatCat are listened to and replied to. With the amount of demos we are currently receiving, we would prefer if you could send your best tracks rather than sending loads. If we like what we hear, then we will then get back to you and ask to hear more. Read More

From The Archive

perating under the L UD O nom de plume, this Brighton based producer & singer/songwriter sees herself not as a painstakingly musical craftswoman but as a symbol of unabashed, unconventional creativity. Celebrating the imperfect, her music conjures up melodic soundscapes drenched in layers of reverb. Her sombre and melancholic vocal harmonies and melodies are interspersed with discordant guitar riffs and lo-fi production.

L UD O cites influences such as The Breeders, Sibylle Baier, Mika Miko, Beck, Lizzy Mercier Descloux and Girls at Our Best! as major sources of her musical inspiration.
