Thyla – Lenox Hill

Lenox Hill is the second track to be shared from Brighton’s post-punkers Thyla. It comes from their forthcoming EP Everything At Once, which is out on the 24th January.

A sweet, almost pop, vocal sits atop a thrumming rhythm and some crunchy guitars and the whole lot combines into a very tasty anthem that just begs for a indie-kid singalong.

Witch Hazel is the latest single from Historian. It is taken from upcoming long player Distractions, due for release on the 17th January.

It is a frenetic, poetic fuzzy slice of indie-punk on which the LA based band unleash their signature shamanistic Leonard Cohen vocals over a Velvet Underground meets Deerhunter style rocker.

Port Juvee – Hope To Lose

It has been more than three years since we posted Port Juvee’s track Double Vision in one of our gone (and probably forgotten) Nickel in the Jukebox round ups.

Today we have Hope to Lose for you, a new single (and video) taken from upcoming long player Motion Control, scheduled for release at the end of February. It is another slab of typically urgent and tense post-punk that marries a classic wiry New York sound with a smidgeon of sunny side up surf rock.

Good stuff.

In celebration of Halloween, watch Death Valley Girls’ new video for Wear Black, which is taken from their excellent 2018 release Darkness Rains via Suicide Squeeze Records. Their world is a fusion of feral proto-punk, ‘70s scuzz dirges, and third eye mysticism and we love it….

 

 

Eyedress is the alias of Filipino artist Idris Vicuña, formerly lead guitarist of psychedelic indie/noise-pop band Bee Eyes. Born in 1990 in the city of Makati, Philippines, Vicuña relocated to the US with his family at the age of six. He was raised in Phoenix, Arizona before moving to San Clemente, California at the age of 13, where he started playing bass in The Liberal Underground, a Crass-influenced crust-punk band.

New single, the sparsely menacing I Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend is a brilliant mix of icy 80s post-punk and hip-hop style vocals and is on repeat here at MM Towers.

Dan Bejar has announced that his thirteenth album as Destroyer, titled Have We Met, will be released on 31st January via Dead Oceans. To coincide, a London headline show at Village Underground has been announced for 5th May, with more tour news to follow.

The first single is Crimson Tide, a six-minute journey that sits rightfully alongside previous Destroyer epics. In typical Bejar fashion, it is a melancholy mover, whisked along by a driving beat, rumbling bass and whimsical piano, it comes as the band’s first new song since 2017’s Ken.

You can watch the cinematic video to accompany it below.

 

Introducing >>> TELGATE

Cardiff based aggro-Glam band, TELGATE will unleash their blistering lipstick-smeared debut single Cherrytight this November, a debut statement from a band that are starting to stand out in the Welsh music scene.

This is music which is unapologetically queer, loud and brutally honest; Cherrytight lights the touch paper with thudding baselines, bombastic drums, caustic gyrating guitars and vocals that drip with attitude and sexuality.

Dive in.

 

 

 

Brooke Bentham’s new single, All My Friends Are Drunk is a song for lost youth and young adulthood.

With influences somewhere between Mazzy Star, Yo La Tengo, Sparklehorse and early Angel Olsen, the young singer/songwriter writes sharp and eloquent songs about her experiences and this one captures “that wishful longing for what was” in the self-destructivity of her and her peers.

It is a truly exemplary display of her talents – creamy overdriven guitars combine with driving rhythms and stunning vocals, giving a Sonic Youth-esque feel to her raw and emotive sound.
