ICYMI: Lightning Dust – Material Life EP

We missed posting about the new Material Life EP from Lightning Dust a couple of months ago. Mentioning Amber Webber in our earlier post today reminded us and we thought better late than never! The two tracks made a sprightly summer foil to the autumnal darkness of last year’s wonderful LP Spectre. Going for a live-from-the-garage feel, the duo of Amber and Joshua Wells  invited … Continue reading ICYMI: Lightning Dust – Material Life EP

New from EELS

Following the early August surprise single release of Baby Let’s Make It Real, EELS have unveiled another new track titled Who You Say You Are. Band leader Mark Oliver Everett, a.k.a.

New Single From Cabbage

Cabbage have descended from the misted Pennines once more to release a wiry tribute to the nerve-jarring electricity of their home city. Get Outta My Brain chases the shadows of Shaun Ryder and the fast burning focus of his late-90s Black Grape-era, cutting gonzo punk fuzz with sharp-focus lyrical intent to affect an intravenous dose of similarly streetwise intellectualism. It is a taster from upcoming … Continue reading New Single From Cabbage

The Rills – The Angler

Thunderous indie trio The Rills have released a new single, The Angler, which is well worth a listen. The track bursts with a vast range of musical influences, channeling the raucous nature of IDLES, as well as an emphatic adoration of songwriters old and new, citing Hotel Lux, Fontaines D.C., The Pogues and a plethora of Speedy Wunderground artists as key inspirations. The Angler optimises the … Continue reading The Rills – The Angler

The Wytches Announce Three Mile Ditch

The Wytches have announced details for their third album Three Mile Ditch. The record is described as an explosive collection of 10 tracks that weaves between gut-wobbling monster riffs, swampy rock, slick surf, and finely tuned song craft. A love of classic songwriting from Bob Dylan to Elliott Smith via Big Star’s Alex Chilton can be heard reverberating throughout the record; the result is a blend … Continue reading The Wytches Announce Three Mile Ditch

Man Of Moon – Strangers

It has been more than four years since we posted anything from Scottish duo Man Of Moon. But at long last they are back with details of a long, long overdue debut album, Dark Sea, recorded in a cottage overlooking prehistoric mountain structures on Loch Fyne – it’s these monolithic structures the Scottish duo tap into on first brilliant single Strangers using heavy motorik beats, … Continue reading Man Of Moon – Strangers

Dog Day – Hell On Earth

Dog Day will release their new album Present via Fundog on the 14th August 14. It is their first record in seven years, and ahead of its release, the band have shared the LP’s debut single, Hell on Earth. As the opening count in and fuzzed-out bass congeal, Hell on Earth’s chiming guitar hook melds seemlessly with airy synths, setting a summery tone for the track … Continue reading Dog Day – Hell On Earth
