Crippled Shining Blues is the excellently named new single to be taken from London-based psych-folk outfit The Hanging Stars’ new album Over the Silvery Lake (due out on 11 March via The Great Pop Supplement and Crimson Crow).

New album In The Sodium Light is out on the 26th February and we have the excellent pastoral psych of Seaworthy from it to share with you.
We love Parquet Courts. Here are a couple of new tracks from much anticipated, upcoming long player Human Performance, which they performed on Fordham University’s WFUV radio station recently.

Travelling alone… Read More Mrs Mackerel’s TFI Friday: 29th January
Dogs is the latest track to be revealed from emerging LA-based band Bird Dog’s forthcoming debut EP Misty Shrub. Give it a spin below, it is another fine example of their warm, synth-tinged Americana that feels like it has just time-travelled from the canyons of early 70’s country-rock.

Mount Moriah have shared Baby Blue, a gorgeous alt-country slow-burner, and it comes accompanied by a beautiful new video that aims to depict the quiet dignity in everyday life through a series of extended shots: including a man sharing a t-shirt with his newborn child, a woman sat on a doorstep eating pizza in the small… Read More New Video: Mount Moriah – Baby Blue
