New Single From Cabbage

Cabbage have descended from the misted Pennines once more to release a wiry tribute to the nerve-jarring electricity of their home city. Get Outta My Brain chases the shadows of Shaun Ryder and the fast burning focus of his late-90s Black Grape-era, cutting gonzo punk fuzz with sharp-focus lyrical intent to affect an intravenous dose of similarly streetwise intellectualism. It is a taster from upcoming … Continue reading New Single From Cabbage

The Wytches Announce Three Mile Ditch

The Wytches have announced details for their third album Three Mile Ditch. The record is described as an explosive collection of 10 tracks that weaves between gut-wobbling monster riffs, swampy rock, slick surf, and finely tuned song craft. A love of classic songwriting from Bob Dylan to Elliott Smith via Big Star’s Alex Chilton can be heard reverberating throughout the record; the result is a blend … Continue reading The Wytches Announce Three Mile Ditch

Man Of Moon – Strangers

It has been more than four years since we posted anything from Scottish duo Man Of Moon. But at long last they are back with details of a long, long overdue debut album, Dark Sea, recorded in a cottage overlooking prehistoric mountain structures on Loch Fyne – it’s these monolithic structures the Scottish duo tap into on first brilliant single Strangers using heavy motorik beats, … Continue reading Man Of Moon – Strangers

The outstanding Society for Cutting Up Men is named after Valerie Solanas’ feminist political pamphlet the SCUM Manifesto. Henry says: “I really just wanted to write a song from this position. The basic idea is that women should rise up and the man is obsolete. It … Continue reading New Video: Young Knives – Society For Cutting Up Men

Chappaqua Wrestling – Football

For Brighton’s Chappaqua Wrestling, the arrival of new single Football is the product of both embracing change, and an unfortunately enforced break from touring. The band’s hiatus gleefully allowing them to side-step some of the nostalgic sounds of recent singles Plant Trees, Is She Happy Turning On Her Side? and Early, and instead leaning into a world of big-hearted, world-weary, understated anthemia. A thick, sprawling, … Continue reading Chappaqua Wrestling – Football

Mad Mackerel Recommends… Sprints

Not sure what is in the water there, but four-piece Sprints are our latest brilliant Dublin discovery joining the likes of Fontaines D.C., The Murder Capital, Girl Band and Silverbacks. We missed early single Kissing Practice, but are loving this new track The Cheek, a raw, raucous and bass fuelled single with post-punk and alt-rock influences. Laced with sarcasm, the song tackles sexuality head on. … Continue reading Mad Mackerel Recommends… Sprints
