Streaming Round Up: New Releases.

Here are a stack more of cracking new releases that you need to hear!

Marching Church is another new project from Iceage’s Elias Bender Rønnenfelt – this time the music is nothing short of spectral – glacial goth anyone?

a

Flock of Dimes is the solo project of Wye Oaks Jenn Wasner, (This Is Why) I Can’t Wear White is the new single and pretty good it is sounding too.

a

King Tuff are releasing a new 7″ of staccato garage rock on Sub Pop, Screaming Skull is a club-ready, guitar-driven dance hit that doesn’t feature on the much heralded recent self-titled album.

a

Those Darlins deliver a new song just in time to celebrate the end of summer fun. The backyard barbecues, swimming holes, and bikini lined lovers are gone and they’re not coming back. Carrying on the grand tradition and spirit of the recently passed Charlie Louvin, Summer’s Dead is Those Darlins’ offering to the pantheon of the American murder ballad. Summer’s Dead is a rock n roll ride through an unruly banquet of deadly seduction.

a

The Beardy Durfs create their unique brand of somehow pleasant cacophonic noise through modified guitar pedals, homemade amplifiers, broken guitars and a seriously trashed drum kit built in the former East Germany. On their latest release Lunch Box / Ponce they continue their quest for lo-fi perfection, stripping back the psychedelic chaos that characterized their first release by taking an even more sparse approach.

a

Eddi Front sees her self-titled EP get a release early next month, and among the five tracks are a cover of Nick Cave’s Into My Arms as well as this beguiling new song Superhero Style.

a

We caught this beauty on Steve Lamacq’s Radio 6 show yesterday, the Tall Ships have echoes of the Smiths in the lyrics and back it up with a propulsive guitar riff. Gallop comes from the forthcoming album Everything Touching which is out next week.

a

Oxford born singer-songwriter Richard Walters has announced the first single to be taken from his forthcoming album as Walk Softly Stranger. Released on the 8th October it is, perhaps aptly, a song about beginnings and the natural trepidation that people feel at the start of something new.

a

Finally, Beach Arabs single, On The Beach, is all high tension wire treble guitar twangs on a surf wave, while tempos start and stop in a quirky cadence all their own – it comes from the Brooklyn trio’s scheduled sophomore album Wild Movement, tentatively due out this autumn.
