MM Recommends… Dead Cherry

We’re a bit late to Dead Cherry, who are releasing their second single C.R.E.E.P. imminently, but it gave us the opportunity to go back and check out (and share) their excellent first single Every Sale Is The Same, which came out a couple of months ago. Mining a deep and varied vein of influence, it’s unsurprising to hear the band namecheck the likes of Jack … Continue reading MM Recommends… Dead Cherry

Mandrake Handshake Share Gonkulator

Hypnotic Oxford psych-collective Mandrake Handshake have shared the rather exhilarating, stoned-indie of Gonkulator, and also announce their signing to cult indie label Nice Swan Records. Incorporating influences of krautrock, funk, Japanese animation and Latin pastoral poetry to create their own unique brand of Flowerkraut, amidst a sprawling barrage of psychedelia.

Glowing In The Dark is the excellent title track from Django Django’s upcoming new album. Built around a sample from one of Dave Maclean’s spoken word records but built out and plushly upholstered with Moog synths and drum loops, it soars gloriously towards the stratosphere. Watch the video here – the album will be out on the 12th February next year.   Continue reading Django Django – Glowing In The Dark

Public Body – Table Manners

Brighton based band Public Body have released a new single Table Manners, taking down capitalism and governmental hierarchy in one fell swoop. Bemoaning the current state of UK politics, and the revolving door of the same poorly equipped leaders – the band make their statement to a backdrop of subtly paced indie-punk, bringing together wobbly synths, jagged guitars and melodic bass runs. Stream it here. … Continue reading Public Body – Table Manners

The Paranoyds – Pet Cemetery

The Paranoyds are a band fuelled by campy horror movies and garage rock — this is more evident than ever on their new seven-inch, beginning with the ominous organ filled opening of A-side Pet Cemetery. Check out the sound of off-kilter keys alongside a chugging guitar line, and expansive experiments. It is an unofficial Halloween anthem for underworld romance. Stream it below and click through … Continue reading The Paranoyds – Pet Cemetery
