PROM - I'll Teach You

Some noisy noise here from PROM that one way or another you're gonna love. Could be the snarl ("I'll teach you how to play. Now"), could be the guitar punch 'n slash, could be some...

Rolling Blackouts - Tender is the Neck

Tender in the Neck's intro bars create sweet anticipation, answered in the storytelling of the lyric, and the harmonies of the chorus, and the strumming of the guitars, and the roll of the melody.

HOO HAs - Yankee

To get an idea of what Yankee sounds like, imagine a slacker punk Courtney Barnett singing about 'the lust for finding purpose and happiness as the world seemingly descends into Malthusian turmoil'.

Cheatahs - Su-Pra

At the same time steady and droning but also wildly oscillating and dissonant, Su-Pra is a glorious noise-feast.

Camera Obscura - The Sweetest Thing

Waking up to a Monday morning, bright and clear and refreshingly Autumnal, I find a hole in the pit of my stomach. There may be anxiety at the week ahead, but if there is it's...

Inspired And The Sleep - In My Labyrinth Mind

What makes In My Labyrinth Mind tick, what anchors the song, is a certain funkiness of groove provided by the rhythm section, aided by some psychedelic swishes and a fair helping of sax towards the...

Young Hunting - Blue Dream

'Blue Dream: an accidental discovery, which led to a long post about the wonder of serendipity.'

Call Me Jolene - Diner

You turn to twitter and spot a conversation involving Martin Rossiter. He's talking about a guitar solo at the end of a song that one person has said sounds a little like the Manics. The...

Medlow - Emotion

The big boomy drum fills followed by the song's chorus could see Emotion soundtracking some future dsytopia that's two thirds chrome, one third sax.

Cappa - Other Girls

Other Girls sets me thinking about how pop is good, pop is fun, and how pop was my first love and I will not be shamed into pretending it never happened. Join my club!

Joy Atlas - Notice It All

Notice It All is the second single from Joy Atlas. Soaring synths and horns make it something pretty special.

Foreign Architects - Fall

With airplay, support slots, and festival appearances all in place, Foreign Architects have had a pretty good 2015 whichever way you slice it. New single Fall is only going to make it better.

Hunny - Parking Lot

Funkier than your average bass and sweet stylistic shifts make Parking Lot easy to recommend.

Beach Baby - Limousine

It's only been six short months since Beach Baby released their debut single Ladybird. With Limousine, their third single getting its premier from Zane Lowe on Beats 1, it doesn't take a genius to spot...

Coast Modern - Hollow Life

I needed something to take me away. I listened to the carefree, want-away Hollow Life. Job done.

Two Cartoons - Males

Now a three-piece, on 'Males' Two Cartoons are just as vibrant and catchy as before, but now with added beef.

Skies - Feel Like It

Feel Like It is the first single from synth duo Skies. It's a monstrously huge track- absolutely cavernous, believe me.

Joey Fourr - Playy

'Something slinky for the weekend? '

Rob Bravery - Broom Cupboard

'Hints of Richard Swift meets Sondre Lerche (plus maybe a touch of Ed Harcourt) in Broom Cupboard, the new single from Bristolian artist Rob Bravery. '

Gengahr - Tired Eyes

'Just to show that they are brimming with ideas and spare material, Gengahr surprise us all with a brand new EP. This is Gengahr, no doubt: Bushe’s high-pitched misty vocals and jangling guitars all delivered...
