Mad Mackerel's Best Of The Month: August 2012.

Our best of August mix is ready and even though it is typically a slightly quieter month for new releases, we can still offer you more than 20 cracking new tunes together with a few ‘hot off the press’ new ones. The result? A brilliant mix to keep you going as we enter autumn (aka the fall for our American friends).

Either way, just enjoy. Check the side bar for all our other monthly mixes too.

Imaginative blend of folk and electronics that combine into a genre-bending, ultra-smooth whole, topped off by his laid-back nonchalant vocal that fits the mood perfectly

And the new ones? Why we have something from Jo Mango’s second album, Murmuration which is set for release on 5th November. This wonderfully wistful album draws upon Jo’s adventures whilst travelling the world as a member of Vashti Bunyan’s band. We have the new single of perfect indie-pop from Sweden’s Cajsa Siik, a haunting sad story driven by stomping rhythms and from her country counterparts we have EP’s Trailer Park’s easygoing country rock jangle of Another Sun. We have the perfectly judged, catchy indie rock of Darlings and their new single Pet The Ghost and finally, we have the melodic, but always visceral rock of the Ten Kens and the twangy, fuzzed up, glam tinged rock of The Sheepdogs with a track from their forthcoming self-titled album.

Download Jo Mango – Cordelia mp3 (from Murmaration)

Download The Ten Kens – Mousetrap mp3 (from Namesake)

Download The Sheepdogs – Feeling Good mp3 (from The Sheepdogs)

Here again is a short round-up of some of the better new releases we’ve come across recently. Once again, they all deserve more in the way of a narrative, but time can be a hard taskmaster on occasion.

First up is the rather strangely named EP’s Trailer Park and their strangely compelling folk song tribute to Mario Vargas Llosa – this year’s Nobel Laureate in Literature.

Download EP’s Trailer Park – Did You Know That The Name Of My True Love Was Vargas Llosa? mp3

 

Next is the woozy, lush, dream jangle of Le Sera and their single Never Come Around. Melt-in-the-mouth, marshmallow pop.

Download Le Sera – Never Come Around mp3 (from Never Come Around 7″)

 

And talking of dreams, Dream Song is in fact more akin to a nightmarish excursion into the more experimental side of rock, making Britches Britches self proclaimed infuences of Deerhunter, Liars and Brainiac easy to understand. More demo tracks can be downloaded for free from their Bandcamp page here.

Download Britches Britches – Dream Song mp3

 

Meanwhile The Luyas new album is described as a picture-perfect collection of echo-drenched space-age pop songs, check out the vintage effects crackling throughout advance track Tiny Head.

Download The Luyas – Tiny Head mp3 (from Too Beautiful To Work)

 

Big High School / Avalanche is the self-released debut 7″ from San Diego’s Moviegoers, it is understated and coolly elegant indie-pop that is as charming as it is urbane.

Download The Moviegoers – Avalanche mp3 (from Big High School / Avalanche 7″)

 

White Laces on the other hand mix live garage-style instrumentation with subtle samples, loops, and archaic synthesizers. The resulting slab of dream punk/noise pop can be found on their forthcoming eponymous EP out in early 2011.

Download White Laces – Motorik Twilight mp3 (from White Laces EP)

 

New Mexico play a no-frills, no fuss brand of top notch heavyweight garage rock that asks for no quarter and certainly gives none. Abused And Amused is a great, bruising taster from their forthcoming EP Have You Met My Friend?

Download New Mexico – Abused And Amused mp3 (from Have You Met My Friend? EP)

 

Tripwires are a new four piece from Reading who offer a thoroughly modern, and original take on noise pop. Try Cinnamon which combines sky scraping guitars with honeyed melodies and rock dynamics to excellent effect.

Download Tripwires – Cinnamon mp3

 

Tristen’s blend of indie pop and up tempo folk calls to mind Neko Case or even Caitlin Rose. Baby Drugs is the catchy b-side to single Eager For Your Love, which can also be downloaded for free from her website here.

Download Tristen – Baby Drugs mp3 (from Eager For Your Love Single)

 

Cheese Sandwich is the new single (and free giveaway) from Wayter, with repetitive, melancholic guitar licks and strained poignant vocals, the alt-rock foursome manage to evoke the feeling of both menace and vulnerability simultaneously.

Download Wayter – Cheese Sandwich mp3 (from Cheese Sandwich Single)

 

Lastly And The Wiremen are a revolving cast of musicians creating music that evokes images of a gothic deep South combined with the rhythms of South America and the grainier elements of barroom jazz and avant-pop. One listen and it’s easy to imagine their sound coming off the muddy waters of a Louisiana swamp.

Download And The Wiremen – Lines mp3 (from And The Wiremen)

Download And The Wiremen – Sleep mp3 (from And The Wiremen)
