A couple of weeks ago Stanley Brinks & The Wave Pictures shared their new single Sober In Barcelona, which is the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming new album, Tequila Island, released next week, 21st June on Fika Recordings.

it’s an ode to a lost afternoon in the baking Spanish sun that sees Mr Brinks mournfully lamenting a period of sobriety on the Plaça de Sol in Gràcia that he swears he’ll never put himself through again.

With tales of artistic jealousy, petty theft, late night psychedelic excursions, burgeoning romance, and a betrayal, Kebab Disco is the debut LP from SF Bay Area trio Neutrals. It follows the release of two well-received promotional cassette demos and is out via the Emotional Response label on the 7th June.

The group channels a wide range of 70s and 80s punk, post-punk, and C86 influences – we’re talking some serious indie guitar jangle – check out I Can Do That and Technical College from the record below.

Modern Nature have announced details of their debut album How To Live, released 23rd August via Bella Union. You can preorder here.

The band is a new project from Jack Cooper (Ultimate Painting/Mazes), Will Young (BEAK>) plus Woods’ Aaron Neveu and Sunwatchers’ Jeff Tobias.

They have shared a video for lovely first single Peradam of which frontman Cooper says: “Peradam is a word from René Daumal’s novel Mount Analogue, which was the source for Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain. In the book ‘Peradam’ is an object that is revealed only when someone knows they are seeking it. The song is about striving for something but not knowing what that something is and feeling like whatever it is might be unattainable anyway. A futile quest or some kind of circular dream. I’m sure most people can empathise with that feeling.

Liking this a lot – watch it here.

 

ShitKid – Detention Album

Åsa Söderqvist and new bandmate Lina Molarin Ericsson, aka ShitKid are winding the clock back to their school days to mine material for their excellent second album [DETENTION].

It is a scintillating eight-track pop-punk blast of teen angst that pays tribute to the bands Söderqvist loved in her formative years. It perfectly evokes a rebellious, youthful spirit that everybody can relate to; young love, alienation and a surefire belief that the adults are out to get you.

And ShitKid have pulled it off with so much energy, that they have made the teenage rollercoaster of emotions such a joy to ride again. Even at our age!

Check out a couple of tracks from the record below and order via Bandcamp here.

 

 

She Drew The Gun today have shared the video for their latest single Paradise.

The striking visual to accompany the track sees the song’s powerful lyrics juxtaposed with imagery tied to the song’s themes of capitalism and privilege. It is the third single to be taken from the Wirral band’s sophomore album Revolution Of Mind and is well worth a watch.

A few tasty videos and new songs for you. From the meditative melancholy of The Tallest Man On Earth, the biting psych-pop of She Drew The Gun and Steve Earle’s latest tribute to Guy Clark to the more raucous end of the spectrum and the pummelling post punk of Crows, Taco Mouth’s fiery take down of Trump, some brilliant Stooges style rumblings from Black Futures, experimental electronic punk from Sistertalk’s debut single and irresistible garage pop from Honeymilk.
