Debut 7″ From White Sands

White Sands consist of members of Male Bonding, Mazes and Novella, and their debut 7″ The Wait is set to be released as a flexidisc accompanied by a zine put together by the band as well as the more usual three track digital single.

The title track is three joyous minutes of furious, no-holds-barred post-punk that had us hitting play again as soon as it had finished. This really is a crackerjack of a record.

It is limited to just 300 copies and set to be released through the ever reliable Art Is Hard label on the 6th October. Pre-order is available here.

Introducing >>> MATTHEW HEDLEY STOPPARD & THE GLASS DELUSION

Introducing Matthew Hedley Stoppard

We’re loving this acerbic single from Leeds-based poet Matthew Hedley Stoppard and Hull art-rockers The Glass Delusion. Revenge Song is a story from the point-of-view of a bullet making its way through the organs of its intended target.

It comes across like the bastard lovechild of Gil Scott Heron and The Fall, and sounds just as good as you would imagine. It is a follow-up to previous single, the equally brilliant You’ll Find Us In The Parks, which you can download for free below.

Streaming now, Revenge Song will be released as a free download on September 15th and is also taken from the forthcoming album Runt County which can be pre-ordered from Bandcamp here.

New Single From Post War Glamour Girls

Yorkshire four-piece, Post War Glamour Girls are back with a new single Gustave / Lolong via Too Pure on the 1st September.

Lolong also features Billy Mason Wood from Blacklisters as a special guest, here’s what the band had to say about Billy’s part in the new release;

Billy plays the part of ‘Lolong’ who is the largest crocodile in captivity and he’s having a conversation through the bars of his cage / prison cell with ‘Gustave’ who is the suspected largest crocodile in the wild (and larger than Lolong for sure) and trying to convince him that he should help him escape and they should work as a team. It was nice to finally collaborate and do a song with Billy. Blacklisters are my favourite Leeds band and although Billy is my least favourite member of the band, it was nice to at least be able to work with one of them

Have a listen and check out live dates below…

New Single From Wild Smiles

Wild Smiles will release their debut album, Always Tomorrow, on Sunday Best Recordings on 27th October. The fast-rising trio, comprising brothers Chris and Joe Peden with drummer Ben Cook, have also released their new single, Never Wanted This, today.

Taking in elements of Beach Boys surf pop, Velvet Underground drones, Jesus & Mary Chain low-fi garage clatter and Nirvana filth, they manage to concoct a dazzling stew of sound.
