Also on the bill at Standon Calling 2012 is The Time and Space Machine, Richard Norris’s recent exploration of the psychedelic side of music. There’s also Norwegian synth-poppers CasioKids. Sunderland’s electro-pop siblings Field Music and long-standing veteran of Standon Calling, Gabby Young and Other Animals, whose new album is due this summer.
