We do all the hard work for you with our round up of the unsigned talent out there in the UK at the moment, these were our picks for September. Find your new favourite band:

Arks are a fantastic Shoegaze/Dream Pop trio hailing from Manchester. They cite influences from the likes of Radiohead, Mew, TheTwilight Sad and Sigur Ros, they also remind us a bit of Galaxie 500 from way back when; their new EP is an atmospheric ride and highly recommended. Listen on their Bandcamp page.

Frontline Fire are an alt-rock trio based in South Wales. Formed in late 2010, and with a DIY released (Suckerfish Records) debut EP entitled "Breakeven" to be released on 21st October 2011. The EP is full of super chunky riffs with a classic rock feel running throughout. Check them out at www.frontlinefiremusic.com

Jon White aka If This Is A Man is a Staffordshire based singer songwriter and his new album was written, performed and recorded in a bedroom over this Summer. The record "Random Acts Of Kindness Have Saved Lives" is described by Jon as mixture of genres from slowcore through psychedelia and folk to electronic and shoegaze. The album is lovely and reminds us a little of Death Cab For Cutie. Check out his stuff at Bandcamp .

Freek are a three piece Punk band from Lancaster and they are all still just 16. Already playing support slots and honing their punchy and explosive sound. We got our hands on a few tracks and are suitably impressed with their old school punk vibe. Check them out on YouTube

Theory of Machines dark, instrumental electro rock has a cinematic quality, the London trio formed in late 2010 and worked with producer Dave Pemberton (Prodigy, Groove Armada, Orbital) on their debut EP which is an impressive, expansive piece of work with nods to Tool and Massive Attack and worth a listen we think. To listen go to their Bandcamp page.

Sinner in the Mirror are a female-fronted four piece from London producing solid, riff heavy melodic rock tunes with great vocals. The band has been compared to Placebo and Skunk Anansie, we also think Pretty Girls Make Graves spring to mind when you listen to their slick but slightly gritty tunes. Listen on Bandcamp
