New Release Round Up.

New releases are coming thick and fast, and hot on the heels of last week’s Round Up, comes part II – ten more tracks of genre-spanning goodies for you to download and delight in.

We kick off with All You Can Eat, a little taste from south Philly art rockers 722, whose new EP, Haunting Me, is set to be released on 31st October.

Screaming guitars, classic cars, tattoos, and cigarettes — Los Angeles based outfit Angels Heart has taken the punk rock tradition and crafted something entirely original. This track, Under The Black Light comes from imminent new album Tattoos And Cigarettes.

Southern-fried, glam rock boogie merchants The Bohannons track Goodbye Bill is an ode to martyred labor organizer Joe Hill approaching the 100th anniversary of his death. The words are from his last will, as well as from Ethel Raim and The Pennywhistlers‘ song Joe Hill. You can find it on their forthcoming debut release Unaka Rising, which is as good a set of blues inspired psych-groove as we’ve heard in a very long while.

Beast Patrol’s debut EP Fierce And Grateful is a triumph of fuzzed up guitars, dynamic percussion and raw, impassioned vocals. Check out the proof with the track Plaster below.

The superbly jangly Northern Lights is the third single to be taken from Allo Darlin’s second album Europe, which was released on Slumberland Records in May. Written about a New Year’s Eve spent in Sweden the song somehow manages to imbue a wintery scene with a sweet breath of sunshine as Elizabeth Morris’ voice rings out clear as a bell and Paul Rain’s guitar melodies shine brightly. Also on Slumberland are Evans The Death, named after the undertaker in Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood, and their perfect mix of fuzzy guitars and exuberant jangle mesh seamlessly into the psychedelic pop charm of new single Catch Your Cold. Download them both and pretend it is 1986.

Magic Arm’s surging title track from the Put Your Collar Up EP is an infectious folk anthem thrown off centre by detuned pianos and woozy synth noises while Naomi Punk’s Burned Body is every bit as visceral, bloody and nerve-shreddingly noisy as the title suggests. Unsound is the appropriate name for Mission of Burma’s latest album on Fire Records, and you can download the rather excellent, and somewhat twisted, art-punk of Semi-Pseudo Sort Of Plan, which is the next planned single from the record.

Lastly, given the weather and the fact I’m stuck on my own in a fading seaside town hotel in the back of beyond, the appropriately titled Rainy Lonely Day by Michael Ainsley comes from a three track EP, Out Beyond The Blue, and is a brilliant slice of introspective, piano led melancholy that calls to mind Robert Wyatt. Get the EP for a pay what you want deal from his Bandcamp page here.

Enjoy – and don’t forget to click through for free downloads if necessary.
