Luxury Death – Diluted

We’ve featured the bittersweet lo-fi indie of Manchester duo Luxury Death a few times in the past and they are back with a new single that traverses some sonically darker terrain.

Diluted has a bolder, more aggressive feel, influenced as it is by industrial dance music and the club scene, offering up something more hypnotic and dystopian than we’ve heard previously.

Stream it here.

 

best of the weekAfter last week’s bonanza of new tunes, we’re back with eleven more tracks gathered up from the past seven days. No reduction in quality either with another (and the best yet) taste from Laura Marling’s new record Semper Femina, a brand new instrumental track from pastoral psych rockers Allah Las and another ominous slice of brooding Americana from Timber Timbre.

We also have new singles from Hater, Luxury Death and WATERS, a Talking Heads cover from Japandroids and another entry from the Our First 100 Days Project – this time it is DRINKS and a hazy, 60’s inspired tune. We have another song from Adam Torres’ upcoming EP and an unbearably sad Mount Eerie track. Finally that rarest of sightings on MM, a remix of sorts with Parquet Courts’ Captive of the Sun brilliantly reworked in tandem with rapper Bun B.

Enjoy y’all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Round Up

The new releases juggernaut has well and truly got into gear for 2017 with a whole host of new tracks from some longstanding MM faves seeing the light of day this week.

So, rather than post them all one-by-one, we’ve rounded them up for you into one neat package.

Wonderful New York duo Diet Cig have announced the forthcoming release of their hugely anticipated debut album entitled Swear I’m Good At This. The album will be released on 7th April via Frenchkiss Records. Today the band have shared the first single off the album – the highly infectious Tummy Ache.

 

Toronto alt-rock quartet The Wooden Sky will also release their new album Swimming in Strange Waters on 7th April via Nevado Music. Drawing its title from a line in Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel, DuneSurvival is the ability to swim in strange water – the record finds frontman and multi-instrumentalist Gavin Gardiner struggling to come to terms with the trauma and unknowns haunting both his personal life and the world at large. Have a listen to the title track.

 

Churning out hauntingly bittersweet lo-fi, Manchester girlfriend/boyfriend duo Luxury Death are back with their new single Glue, alongside the announcement of their debut EP of the same name.

 

Laura Marling has shared a second track, Wild Fire, from her upcoming new album Semper Femina.

 

Laura Marling also contributes backing vocals to Karen Elson’s new track Distant Shore, which comes from the English-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter’s sophomore album Double Roses – also out on 7th April (mark the date!) via H.O.T Records Ltd.

 

Long-running Toronto indie-folk trio Rural Alberta Advantage have shared Beacon Hill, it comes ahead of a planned new album for later in the year.

 

Experimental psych-rock institution Grails have just shared a second track Pelham, ahead of their first studio album in six years, Chalice Hymnal. The track is a visceral collusion of acid-psych, 20th century Western film scores, and jazz-infused prog.

 

Ignorecam is Pissed Jeans crushing new offering from Why Love Now, their forthcoming fifth album available 24th February on Sub Pop.

 

And finally, noisy post-punk duo Japandroids have given us No Known Drink Or Drug, a new track from their long awaited third album, Near To The Wild Heart Of Life.

Luxury Death is the brainchild of boyfriend/girlfriend duo Ben Thompson (from Nai Harvest) and Meg Williams.

They deliver hauntingly bittersweet lo-fi indie rock songs influenced by knowing that one day you are going to die.

Radiator Face is the very good debut single – stream it below.
