Round Up Time Again

Once again it is time to hurl in the lifesaving post of a Round Up, thrown boldly into the rising tide of cracking new tunes that are lapping against the very top of our inbox. Ten bands, thirteen tracks…dip in!

.

First up is the raw, take-no-prisoners rock’n’roll of Scary People’s tracks Crush The Bug and Chicago – pure, unadulterated foot-stomping noise.

.

Slow Club release their much anticipated new album Complete Surrender in July. The first single from it is the title track, utilizing sweeping strings, a galloping beat and the band’s rich and soaring vocals.

.

The wonderful Timber Timbre will release their new album imminently and the insistent groove and disquieting Americana of Curtains?! is a real gem.

Creepoid is one of our favourite names for a band and their planned Record Store Day release, an EP titled Wet is their debut on Graveface Records. A one sided 12”, it features 4 new songs and a B side etching. Check out the slow burn sonics of Wet Bread.

The irrepresible jangling guitars of The Shilohs are showcased perfectly on their new track Palm Readers that comes from their forthcoming self-titled album.

Fresh from supporting Cate Le Bon on her recent UK tour, Sweden’s Sea Lion is giving away a free download of the haunting Sanna’s Song, a mesmerising, slow-burning ballad built on finger-picked guitar and warm, analogue organ.

.

The mighty Ming City Rockers are also back with a new single, the swaggering, primal rock’n’roll of Twist It.

.

Powder Blue have just shared their track Run, and have been described as “a perfect storm of psychedelic rock, shoegaze and drone”. We’ll be catching them at the Great Escape in May!

.

Lastly we have the spacey, mind melting electronica infused psychedelia of Hypnotized – listen to a couple of suitably sonically adventurous tracks from their new five track EP Telesto.
