Also new songs from forthcoming albums from Conor Oberst, Strand of Oaks, Ryan Adams and Menace Beach.

I know, we spoil you. Dive in.

Leeds duo Menace Beach recently announced details of a new album Lemon Memory (due 20th January, on Memphis Industries – pre-order here).

They will release a new single, Give Blood, on the same day. It harnesses their raucous and scuzzy energy, but in perhaps their most “pop” moment to date.

It’s good. Have a listen.

We really don’t post as many videos as we should… so as usual here is our rather feeble attempt to clear the backlog of some of the excellent musical films we’ve seen recently.

New From Menace Beach

There cannot be many better ways to start the day than with a new song about a pocket-size alien ghoul who soaks up your darkness and anxieties.

So it is with Ghoul Power, the latest track from Menace Beach’s new Super Transporterreum EP which cranks up the ante a notch or two with some off kilter psychedelics, woozy hallucinogens and good old fashioned speed buzz.

Don’t worry – it ends up a sweaty pale wreck after the band take him to too many parties and it shows…I hope they do a video for it!

Listen below. Order the EP here.
