Stockholm quartet Les Big Byrd are back with new music after a two year absence with their new single Two Man Gang, via Stockholm label PNKSLM Recordings.

It is a pop inspired piece of cinematic krautrock that builds up to a wholly satisfying coda…stream it here.

 

Theo Verney has announced his debut album. One Small Piece will be released through Cannibal Hymns on Friday 7th July. The record melds influences from Neil Young to Pink Floyd onto his already distinct style to create eight perfectly crafted songs.

The album will be proceeded by the single Mind Fire which is out tomorrow, and you can stream it here.


The marvellous Meatraffle, a Chris T Popper discovery for MM, have shared details of their new single Brother, to be released on limited 7” vinyl and digitally on July 14th, via Moshi Moshi Singles Club.

Currently in the process of recording their third album, after their cracking 2015 debut Hi-Fi Classics (they have opted out of recording a second record to avoid the dreaded ‘difficult second album’ syndrome), Brother is a six and a half minute continuation of the engrossing, yet unpredictable and hard-to-pin-down intelligence of the South London band’s output.

Speaking about the single, Meatraffle say, “Brother is about the platonic love you have with your friends (sex is forbidden). It’s about sharing and having things in common. The ups and downs, of course – about who buys more rounds of drinks than the others. It’s a dry orgy, that’s all it is.”

Sounds good to us!

 

MM Shorts 948: Rips

Brooklyn based Rips’ songs may channel late ’70s New York City bands like Television and The Feelies, but they smartly propel these references into something new and contemporary. Their self-titled debut, produced by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts, is eleven tracks of buzzing guitar riffs driven by a charged rhythm section.

Check out the chugging fizz of new single Delay and the previously shared, slightly more reflective Malibu Entropy below. The album is out on the 16th June via Faux Disc.

Danish five-piece post-punks Lød’s music garners descriptions like a squirrel gathers nuts: krautrock, trance punk, propulsive motorik, industrial no-wave, and many more.

Taken from their upcoming debut EP (pre-order here), one listen to the brilliantly hypnotic eight minute groove of Folder shows exactly why.

Listen!

With their frenetic, snotty, psych-surf rock ‘n’ roll sound in the vein of Ty Segall or The Cramps, Brighton’s Strange Cages have made big strides in their short existence.

We featured them back in 2015, and now the trio are now set to release a new 6-track EP The Cracks on Vallence Records this June. First track to surface is Leader Of A Cult combining elements of krautrock and post-punk with a nicely paranoid, schizophrenic vocal.

Watch the video below.

 

Guildford-based singer-songwriter Annabel Allum shows off a marvellously snarling and sarcastic voice with latest single Eat Greens, which was released as a single last week via Killing Moon Records. It is taken from a forthcoming summer EP.

Expanding from her folk roots into fuzzier-slacker territory, the single is a true statement of intent and attitude with blistering riffs and frenetic vocals on display throughout.

Give it a whirl.
