MM Shorts 633: Honeymilk

Posted: November 20, 2014 in Music

Hailing from Sweden Honeymilk are a band that we’ve posted about a couple of times on MM, their spiky and boisterous indie-rock sitting somewhere between The Strokes, The Kinks, Ty Segall, Wilco and Velvets.

Their second single A Scene In Between, taken from their upcoming EP Sanguine Skies, is richly layered with soaring electric guitars and a heavy kick drumbeat that comes together in an energetic sonic combination.



Mad Mackerel's Best of April 2013

Better late than never, here is our monthly round-up of the best of our April downloads together with a handful of brand new tracks. More than twenty songs especially prepared for you to put together an eclectic and appealing mix to impress all your friends and bore your boring work colleagues.


Wild Wild Wets – Criminal Blue
Tripped out, freaked out, psych pop.


Hey Anna – Tiny Kiss
Intimate vocal harmonies perched atop poppy folkish melodies that meet soaring, atmospheric alt-rock.


The Lost Souls Club – Son, You Look Like You Need Jesus
Taking its cue from the darker end of the psych-blues spectrum, this track gleefully careers off the road into the verge, happily making a home in the margins of mainstream rock’n’roll and spitting sly malevolence at anyone who comes too close.


Owls Of The Swamp – Hypnotist
A masterpiece of elegiac fingerpicked folk, softly spun melody, and ghostly backing vocals.


Young Hunting – Baby’s First Steps
Lush, woozy and seductive evoking a sense of back porch bonhomie and marijuana enhanced well being.


Belle Mare – The Boat Of The Fragile Mind
Dreamspace of acoustic and synth textures, weaving folk with dream pop.


Sunjacket – Alligator
Indie rock with a laconic, hazy chug and sweet falsetto chorus.


Download Brass Bed – Please Don’t Go mp3 (from The Secret Will Keep You)
Three minutes of infectious indie-rock perfection with a soupçon of garage rock attitude.


Amanda Jo Williams – 2000Hell
Idiosyncratic mix of twangy rockabilly and weird Americana


The Baptist Generals – Broken Glass
Haunted, claustrophobic take on drunken folk.

Click through for free download.


Torches – When You Gonna?
Opens with a tasty riff and settles into a nice, easy-going melodic groove that calls to mind The Shins or Spoon.


Georgia’s Horse – Ginger
Dusty Americana shot through with a melancholy and sadness that is almost real enough to touch.


Paperhaus – Helicopters
Perfectly judged psych-pop.


Shawn Mrazek Lives! – Man In The Grass
A tale of self-discovery and freedom that snaps, snarls and sparkles in equal measure.


Download Shannon and the Clams – Into a Dream mp3 (from Dreams in the Rat House)
Slow-dance-ready instrumental with darkly bucolic lyrics.


The Builders & The Butchers – Dirt In The Ground
Sonically heavier perhaps, but just as distinctive dark-hearted folk as always. Wonderful.


And new tracks to dive into from Morningbell’s experimental psych-tinged art rock to Honeymilk’s infectious indie, and two tracks of gorgeous stripped back folk from Dark For Dark. Finally, try the simplicity and honesty from Young Readers indie-folk, shot through with a dreamy, imaginary quality that (whisper it) calls to mind Sparklehorse or Jason Molina.

New Single From Honeymilk

New Single From Honeymilk

Back in October we lauded the boisterous and spiky indie rock of Honeymilk’s debut single It Might Be, and now the Swedish four piece have followed it up with their new single (released yesterday), This Time Around (The Gods Won’t Save Me).

They’ve turned up the angst-meter and slowed down the pace (just a little), but the results are still impressively anthemic and heartfelt. Grab it below.

A (Belated) Round Up.

We missed these recently. You shouldn’t!

First up are three tracks from Castle Face’s new re-imagining of the Velvet Underground & Nico album to celebrate 45 years since that seminal release. It features previous MM alumni The Fresh & Onlys, Burnt Ones, and Thee Oh Sees amongst others – and is limited to just 1,000 copies, on banana yellow vinyl with original art by another MM fave David Shrigley – it is a pretty neat package. Download Ty Segall’s maniacal take on Femme Fatale and listen to White Fence doing Run Run Run and Kelly Stoltz tackling Sunday Morning.

We also have another hypnotically brilliant track from The Luyas new Animator album, together with the bizarre prospect of Kate Nash guesting on a Fidlar track from their forthcoming self-titled debut – and don’t worry it’s really good. Alternatively check out the psych-blues of American Royalty’s Matchstick or (in a similar vein) Leapling’s Seventeen. Elsewhere Deerhoof and Half Waif are the latest free download in the Less Artists More Condos singles series.

Honeymilk’s debut single It Might Be is as boisterous and as spiky a slab of indie rock as anything we’ve heard recently, and there is another very welcome taste from Outer Minds and their new album Behind The Mirror. By contrast Tamarin play a gentle blend of sweetly introspective folk, Seems A Laugh comes from recently released long player Shake The Ghost.

Weinland’s new album Los Processaur is out on the 6th November and there are echoes of the Decemberists in the literary tones of Another Dollar Rainy Day. Mini Dresses are a new dream pop band from Austin, Texas whose free download of Hot Sun sounds like the Cocteau Twins on meth amphetamine (in an entirely good way).

From Rollo & Grady’s excellent Best New Artists of 2012 feature we have Tashaki Miyaki’s brilliant cover of Father John Misty’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings and finally we also have Daniel Rossen’s stunningly gorgeous 2009 track Untitled, which is one of his demo tracks that has been “lying around”, and which he is now giving away for free.
