Stream These. Following on from our Friday mix yesterday, here are a few tunes to stream, listen to and investigate further should you feel the need. We think you probably will.

First up is the new single, 17, from Young & Lost Club’s indie alt-rockers Being There.


Oxford’s latest buzzworthy band are The Black Hats – lots of energy, a definite pop edge, big chorus hooks, and smart lyrical rhythms. Listen to Kick In The Doors. It comes from forthcoming mini-album Austerity for the Hoi Polloi.


Restless Fugitive is the new single from Willy Mason, it comes from this new album, the first in five years. If you like it, you can grab it as a free download from his Facebook page here.


Similarly with spacey psychedelia aficionados Spiritualized who return with their first new material in four years. This is the nine minute epic Hey Jane from Sweet heart Sweet Light, the new album.


We have a new track for you from the Jay Farrar (Son Volt, Gob Iron, Uncle Tupelo), Will Johnson (Centro-matic, South San Gabriel), Anders Parker (Varnaline, Gob Iron) and Yim Yames (My Morning Jacket, Monsters of Folk) supergroup and their Woody Guthrie project. This time the track is fronted by Yim Yames, and is called My Revolutionary Mind.


Rusty Bear were on 6 Music’s Breakfast Show on Wednesday morning. Their sound is one of gorgeously brooding indie folk/pop and is well worth a few minutes investment from your ears. It comes from debut album From Source To Sea, available via Mollusc Records from March 26th.


Django Django have been a band we’ve liked since Scottish Kate discovered them for us. Their self-titled debut album of catchy surf rock, psychedelia and skittering electronics has picked up a lot of plaudits and this is another track from it, the throbbing Storm.


Talking of buzz, it has been likewise for gloomy, brooding UK indie rockers 2:54 This is their new single You’re Early, out on Fiction on April 9th.


M.Ward is now solo in every sense of the word and returns with new album A Wasteland Companion in April. This taster, Primitive Girl, seems a marked step up in quality compared with some more recent offerings and bodes well.


Lastly Adventure Galley ratchet up the tempo with the excellent sonic rock jam Weekend Lovers – think MGMT doing battle with Arcade Fire in a room full of amphetamines.
