We’ve got good stuff coming out of our ears – quite literally at the moment. So here is the latest in our somewhat ad-hoc “of the best” feature comprising a trawl of the in-box and favourite blogs to bring you eight corking tunes to help get your Friday night off to a suitably energetic start.
We have Swedish punks Holograms and the clattering b-side to new 7″ single ABC City and another from paisley garage band White Fence with a taste from forthcoming album Family Perfume Vol 2 called King Of The Decade. Meanwhile Beast Make Bomb expertly combine the distorted punk attitude of the late 1970s with some classic fuzzed out pop melodies to deliver some sweetly addictive tunes, It Snowed Last Night comes from new EP Skinny Legs.
We have a slow-burning, fuzzed up new track from Spectrals and a taste of experimental indie rock from AU’s scheduled new album Both Lights and another excellent slice of psych-pop from New York’s Violens with Der Microarc which will feature on their new album True.
The Plastic Traps are new to us, but they come from Philly, are a two-piece and they provide a most appetising selection of haunting, reverb soaked vocals mixed with hazily hypnotic guitars and primal drums. This track, Corridor, comes from debut album Find A Home (available for free via Bandcamp here). And lastly we tone things down nicely with another track from Jenny Gillespie’s new EP Belita in the shape of Sunshine Blood, another intoxicating and heady blend of indie, folk and pop.
