Dolls – Pop The Bubble EP

Posted: August 15, 2018 in Alternative, Garage, Indie, Music, Pop, Punk, Rock

Dolls have shared the lead track from their forthcoming EP Pop The Bubble.

Set for release in September the EP is four garage-pop anthems with as much sass as they have bite. For now, check out Sugar Free, a riotous example of their infectious grunge-punk inspired by “the use-and-throwaway society around us today, how superficial people’s lives can be, and how rapidly people’s values and what’s on-trend can change”.

Stream it here.


Untitled (LA) is the second taste from Swearin’s upcoming full length Fall into the Sun, their first for five years.

It is another cracking track. Opening on the back of a great riff, the song sets off in a hurry and doesn’t look back – melodic, garage punk at its best.

Listen below – pre-order from Bandcamp here.


  1. Terry – Oh Helen
  2. The Dodos – Forum
  3. Colleen Green – Let Go
  4. Marissa Nadler – Blue Vapor
  5. Art Brut – Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out
  6. Tiny Ruins – How Much
  7. Dilly Dally – Sober Motel
  8. DeVotchKa – Angels
  9. Mitski – Two Slow Dancers










Australia’s punk-partying DZ Deathrays have shared their brand new video for Feeling Good, Feeling Great, the latest single to come from their recently-released album Bloody Lovely which is out now via Alcopop! Records.


See them live…

Brooklyn, NY’s Human People, have announced their upcoming debut full-length, Butterflies Drink Turtle Tears, due out September 21st from Exploding In Sound Records.

The first single is the excellent and snottily infectious California – a quick blast of spiky indie punk, which sardonically explores the anxiety that’s often lurking beneath care-free people and places.

Have a listen.


  1. Slaves – Chokehold
  2. Sleaford Mods – Stick In A Five And Go
  3. Spiritualized – Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go
  4. Interpol – Number 10
  5. All The Witches – Fishbelly 86 Onions
  6. Mutual Benefit – Come To Pass
  7. Ron Gallo – It’s All Gonna Be OK
  8. Dirty Lungs – Dumps Like A Truck
  9. Maxband – Means To An End
  10. Muncie Girls – Locked Up












A round up of some sweet new videos.

Shimmering psych-pop from Whyte Horses, some charming Syd Barrett inspired bedroom lo-fi from Tiny Eyes, gentle pastoral folk from Queen of the Meadow, rambling, soulful Americana from Valley Maker, vintage outlaw bluegrass country from the Tennessee Stiffs, rural fuzz-folk from Stray Owls, classic indie-pop from Doe, anthemic, heavy duty indie from Tired All The Time, and last, but not least, punk rock fury from Glitoris,











Last year Brooklyn’s Grim Streaker released their explosive first single Guts, and a highly-praised debut EP, Minority Girl, and now they have shared new single Mojito, a summer-appropriate song inspired by a drunken night abroad, drinking one too many mojitos on the way to a hidden cave bar in Cuba.

We’re loving their high octane, snotty, in-your-face punk topped with snarling, caustic vocals. Stream it here.


  1. Protomartyr & Spray Paint – Corinthian Leather
  2. Mass Gothic – How I Love You
  3. Houndmouth – Golden Age
  4. Iron & Wine – What Hurts Worse
  5. Kevin Devine – Prehistoric  (Now Now cover)
  6. Swearin’ – Grow Into A Ghost
  7. The Molochs – Too Lost In Love










IDLES – Samaritans

Posted: July 25, 2018 in Alternative, Music, Punk, Rock

Samaritans is the third taste of IDLES‘ forthcoming, and much anticipated, long player Joy As An Act of Resistance.

It is a savage takedown of toxic masculinity, as confrontational a song as they’ve ever done, and already a live favourite.

Stream it here. The album is out on the 31st August via Partisan Records – you can pre-order here.
