We give you our regular rundown of the unsigned British bands hitting our radar at the moment. As usual with so much talent on offer choosing wasn't easy but we managed to whittle it down in the end and here are November's final picks, all are worthy of your time.

Loose Lips
Talented Brighton trio Loose Lips (Jason Barker, Matt Don, Sam Perkins) began just five months ago and already have some super catchy punk-rock tunes with an emotional backbone and great (Matt Skiba-ish) vocals which have you up and moving immediately. The band has been touring non-stop but has still found time to record their EP ( in Sam's front room) The "Cloud Your Thoughts" EP can be download from their facebook page and we heartily recommend that you do

Highly recommended atmospheric metal from Scottish Djent mob Sectioned, made up of band mates Pedram Valiani (Guitars/Production), Mitchell Gillies (Bass), Greg Armstrong (Vocals), Owen Hughes (Drums) and Alex Smith (Guitars). Their quality tunes are dark and brooding with effects laden vocals and nasty, complex riffs woven with soaring epic touches and sweet intimate moments. Their new five track EP "Wake Up, It's Starting" came out at the end of September and it's well worth tracking down at their Bandcamp page.

Shoot The Director
Off kilter alt-rock from Hertfordshire trio Shoot The Director who have been around and touring since 2008. Their sound is jagged, jazzy and minimal but their theatrical vocals and great three part vocal harmonies make them stand out from the crowd and they pull off some nicely melodic tunes amidst the quirky riffs. You can get a taste of their tunes over at facebook

Your Protected
Your Protected pack a punch, their instrumental post-rock styled tunes, in the vein of And so I Watch You From Afar and Maybeshewill, are full of complex, meaty riffs and intense drums with memorable hooks woven throughout. Heavy duty and intense but also showing they can inject a delicate touch when needed to mix things up, they are a welcome addition to the UK post-rock scene. Check them out and name your price for their new 6 track record "Your Protected" over at Bandcamp now.

This Calamity
This Calamity is the work of singer songwriter Martyn Crocker, his new EP showcases his distinctive take on alt-pop-rock in the vein of City and Colour and Brand New. The solid and catchy melodies are carried by Martyn's emotional vocals, backed nicely by acoustic guitar and some gentle piano flourishes. You can get hold of a free copy of This Calamity's new "Animals" EP from 7th November at 7pm, for free, from his website www.thiscalamity.co.uk.

The Air Was Thick
Calling to mind bands like My Bloody Valentine with their dense distorted guitar sound and dreamy feel The Air Was Thick have only been together since last year but make an assured noise, bringing a post-rock edge to shoegaze, with epic flowing walls of noise wound round soothing interludes and floaty vocal melodies almost drowned in fuzz they really impress. To hear some of their cracking tunes head over to bandcamp where you can hear and download their new self released mini album "Prototype 1.0" for free.

Honeykill is a London based four piece made up of James Dalglish, Toady Bomb, Andy Shuttleworth and Jamie Faith. They certainly have ambition and are currently working on big plans for their anthemic rock tunes with a hint of foot stomping gritty rock and roll. Plans are afoot for an EP and album release, regardless of whether or not they have to go down the self-release route, and they are currently to be found playing gigs regularly around the London area. Check them out at their facebook page and have a listen to their tunes.
