New Album From Phobophobes, Share I Mean It All

South Londoners Phobophobes inhabit their own idiosyncratic avant-garde world like some bastard child of The Cramps and Talking Heads. One where post-punk, gothic, art-rock and new-wave collide forming a gloriously unpredictable sound. We were big fans of their debut long player, 2018’s Minature World and now the band have announced the release of their second album Modern Medicine on 25th June via new label Modern … Continue reading New Album From Phobophobes, Share I Mean It All

The Deathray Davies – Time Well Wasted

Psymon Spine – Jumprope

Fusing psychedelic pop and the deep grooves of dance music, Psymon Spine’s music oozes with melodic hugeness. New album Charismatic Megafauna explores a pot pourri of sounds ranging from disco to early techno and motorik’s incessant pulse. Latest single Jumprope offers vocalist Sabine Holler’s pithy commentary on city life over a driving beat and funk-inspired bassline that calls to mind LCD Soundsystem and Talking Heads.  Stream it … Continue reading Psymon Spine – Jumprope

Ohtis featuring Stef Chura – Schatze

Absolutely loving this new track from Ohtis featuring Stef Chura. It is the latest in Saddle Creek’s ongoing Document series, which has already shared releases from the likes of Hovvdy, Palehound, and Hand Habits. Schatze follows the release of the trio’s excellent 2019 debut album Curve of Earth and is a character study of the Selfish Antisocial Male, told primarily through the lens of band member Sam … Continue reading Ohtis featuring Stef Chura – Schatze

In their strong tradition of new/unlikely collaborations the new single Wrong Party is a collaboration between acclaimed Polish superstar Brodka and in-house Speedy band Scottibrains … Continue reading Brodka & Scottibrains – Wrong Party

New Single From Blanketman

We recently shared Blanketman’s excellent single Harold in our last video round up, and now the four piece have followed it up with a new track from their upcoming National Trust EP. Something of a love-letter of absent friends and an admission that nothing is perfect, Leave The South is another fine example of their post-punk groove and jangle. Watch the lyric video here   Continue reading New Single From Blanketman
