MERRILL GARBUS and Nate Brenner’s excellent, genre-busting, rousing Tune-Yards have released a brilliantly freakish stop-motion animation for their new track, “nowhere, man”. It’s bright, groovy, offbeat, spacious, eccentrically paced, passionately sung: in short, everything you need a Tune-Yards’ tune to be. And that accompanying video … Merrill and Nate are caught giving it the Chaplin …

THE DAWDLER – the brilliant North-East singer-songwriter known to friends and family as John Edgar – has today released a second song from his forthcoming debut EP Sign of Growth for his new home, Akira Records. It follows the heartbreak of last month’s “Lava Lamps”, the elegy for a lost friend which, with T-shirt sales …

SINGER-guitarist Carl Coleman and pianist-producer Caspar Hesselager are the musicians behind Danish-Australian duo Palace Winter; they’ve been plying a line in grand, intelligent pop since Waiting For The World To Turn, their debut album, back in 2016. They’ve readied the more synthy textures of their third album, …Keep Dreaming, Buddy, which they’ll be unveiling come …

SLOW PULP are a band who’ve been around the block – in a really, dreadfully short space of time. Don’t wish for the kinda year singer Emily Massey’s had. No, really: don’t. Things were very much on the upward curve for the young band, outta Wisconsin and Chicago-based – on tour with Alex G, gaining …

HMS MORRIS are a rather fine art-rock collective operating out of the Welsh capital; the project of former Emmy the Great bassist Heledd Watkins, they’ve since developed a whole ethos, aesthetic, sweetly harmonious life of their own. Following the release of two pre-covid era singles, “Babanod” and “Poetry”, they’ve dusted off the rime of lockdown and …

DAVID COMO, the Canadian musician who hides his considerable musical light under the Sing Leaf bushel for us, the recipients of his off-kilter, psychedelic synth-folk joy, has today dropped a final taster song for his new album, Not Earth, which will be released on Friday week. He’s been dropping soothing, spacey little gifts from Not …

PLYMOUTH, the city that gave us Sir Francis Drake playing bowls before nipping off to defeat the Spanish Armada, is launching a shot at our jack in the shape of new, soaring indie five-piece The Native, who are releasing their debut single “Chasing Highs” today.  Have a listen below; it’s a big-hearted indie rocker that …

Brisbane’s very exciting sweater curse have just release a brand new track and video as well as announcing the much anticipated release of an EP entitled ‘push/pull’ on 25 September. This follows the release of single ‘Close’ earlier this year which we enthusiastically reviewed. ‘All the Same’ has a heavier feel than earlier material with …

The track by the multinational band The Lalabies shimmers like a missing track from the ‘Lost in Translation’ offical soundtrack: it’s dreamy, hypnotic and floats through the brain. It’s the same feeling you get when you lie on your back and stare in wonder at the night’s sky above you. There is an airy spaciness …

I Like Trains share the third single ‘A Steady Hand’, from their forthcoming album ‘Kompromat’, set for release on August 21st via Atlantic Curve. “It looks at the messaging behind nationalist politics” vocalist David Martin says of the single. “It seems there’s often a certain dark irony at play, with politicians wheeling out an anti-immigration stance which stands completely at odds with their …
