Thursday Means Eight Of The Best

Thursday Means Eight of the Best!

Here are eight of the very best tracks to reach out to us from our inbox and the internet over the past few days.

First up we have a new track from the forthcoming album Soft Will from Smith Westerns, which distills the spirit of Big Star into a delicately reverential tribute to classic 70s radio rock. We have the superbly maudlin, gloom-pop of Franklin the Flirt by Porches and possibly even trumping that we have Coma Cinema’s third single from forthcoming album Posthumous Release. The spare, haunting Virgin Veins talks of quiet suffering, loneliness, ugliness and confusion, “The heart is a monument / to a childhood of abuse.

Next comes the energetic, scrappy indie rock of Potty Mouth and their new single The Spins. We have the enervated, laconic acoustics of Modern Hut and the excellent track History that makes Bill Callahan look like a childrens’ entertainer. Sixth is La Luz’s jangly, surf-tinged harmonies and sweet garage pop of new single Brainwash.

The sub 90 seconds of Bad Boys by White Fang is a triumph of catchy, deliberately dumb rock’n’roll and a cracking track to boot. Finally via the excellent Yankee Calling blog we have a repost of their fine recommendation for Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and their new 7″ release Look It Here that sounds as joyous a slab of classic 60s soul as you’re likely to hear.
