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

The rhythmical clatterings and chimes of Day Lineal’s music are created both instrumentally and with the addition of field recordings. Percussive sounds and melodies are captured on Dictaphones and played back in unison with accompaniment from prepared guitar, bass and more percussion. At times sounding like a lo-fi Gamelan Orchestra, London’s Day Lineal craft snippets of vaguely recognisable sounds that fade in and out, leaving ghostly imprints that continue to echo long after the music ends.
