New Video: PINS – Too Little Too Late

PINS - Too Little Too Late

Manchester four-piece PINS have announced the release of their new album Wild Nights on 8th June via Bella Union.

The first 7″ single from the album, Too Little Too Late, will precede it on 30th March. The perfect taster for the album,  it opens with a fearless drumbeat and heavy bassline before slowing into a sparse momentary instrumental. The track then reverts back to Faith Vern’s alluring vocal before finally stampeding heavily into a fuzzed up sound clash of guitars and drums.

It is our favourite PINS track so far…watch the super slow motion video for it below. Order the single here.

New Video: Delta Spirit – Language Of The Dead

Delta Spirit have released a new video for Language Of The Dead, the new single from their 2014 album Into the Wide.

Front man Matt Vasquez directed and edited the tongue-in-cheek video himself, using a green screen in his home to create a trippy, space-traveling, time-warped reality inspired by Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs and History of the World: Part 1, that finds Agamemnon, Robert E. Lee and Tolstoy teaming up to battle a space monster (not-so-terrifyingly played by Vasquez’s cat).

Courtney Barnett – Depreston

The much-anticipated release of the debut LP proper from Courtney Barnett, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, will see a release on the 23rd March.

Another song has been shared from the album today, Depreston details the mundane task of house hunting and in traditional Barnett style, it becomes something much, much more. This may be our favourite track we’ve heard from her so far…wonderful stuff.

Watch it here.

MM Shorts 670: Obnox

From a foundation of dirt-level garage punk, Lamont “Bim” Thomas aka Obnox sculpts deep cuts out of blown-out beats, redline guitar damage, and soulful singing, as if your local gospel choir had been raised on a steady diet of The Pagans and Back From the Grave compilations.

Know America, Obnox’s fifth full-length, is already the second of three albums to come out in 2015. Listen to the brilliant Menocause, a stately wonder of slo-mo guitar fuzz and minimal percussion.

Introducing >>> Chief Ghoul

chief ghoulAlt-country, folk-rocker Lee Miles, aka Chief Ghoul, is gearing up to release his 13-track third album, III, this Spring.

Hailing from Chicago, the current home of the the USA’s most prominent garage scene, he cooks up a most satisfying retro-vibe that echos Woody Guthrie’s storytelling with some righteous garage blues guitar.

We have a couple of tracks of distorted, spooky Americana for you to spin that are as thrilling as they are haunting.

Check out Done Dabbled and Bed of Nails here.

MM Shorts 669: Surf City

Harnessing the explorations of 2013’s We Knew It Was Not Going To Be Like This into more focused packages, the group still delivers reverb-soaked joy at every turn in their endeavours to deliver the perfect jittery motorik pop song,
