Taken from the Mediaeval Baebes recent eleventh studio album MydWynter, we’re delighted to be able to premiere the new video for the beautiful ‘Carol Of The Bells’ right here today on Backseat Mafia.

The gloriously jangling thunderous sound of The Cult is back with their new single ‘A Cut Inside’ out today. It has all the hallmarks of their previous work: a magnificent mélange of delicate jingle jangle arpeggiated guitar and fuzzy, dirty power chords from the legendary Billy Duffy, supporting Ian Astbury’s dramatic urging vocals with mountainous …

They have just released a double single that showcases their brooding enigmatic sound: an edgy and goth-tinged sonic beast that …
