best of the weekPart two of our weekly round up of the best tracks from the past seven days kicks off with another fine track from Laura Marling’s new album, and an excellent new single from The Districts.

We have another brash slab of riotous rock from Charly Bliss and something equally propulsive from Hiccup (should keep the indie kids happy). Trance Farmers slow things down with their ominous new single, while Cotillon’s new track is a masterclass in hazy slacker rock. Finally, White Reaper round things off with the title track from new album The World’s Best American Band.

  1.  The Districts – Ordinary Day
  2. Laura Marling – Nothing, Not Nearly
  3. Trance Farmers – Witches
  4. Hiccup – Neverwhere
  5. Charly Bliss – Percolator
  6. Cotillon – Alex’s Room
  7. White Reaper – The World’s Best American Band

The Trance Farmers deal in stupidly infectious sample-based bedroom psych-pop, demented soul and greasy glam-punk and all are in evidence on new cassette release For Whom The Scarecrows (order here).

Listen to The Veil below, a song that sounds like it comes from a long lost Addams Family soundtrack album and in just over two minutes manages to rhyme veil, with pale, trail, nail, frail, tale, and snail amongst others…

Charmingly bonkers. Have a listen.

We’re not usually ones for premieres and all that stuff, but when the song is this good then we can sometimes be persuaded to rouse our lazy carcass off the sofa and head for the keyboard.

Trance Farmers (great name) specialise in psychobilly blues. Six track release Garbage Night is out April 28 on LEAVING Records with Stones Throw. You can also buy from Bandcamp here.

Watch the video for the title track, a fluorescent, garish animation with a slight Monty Python feel that fits this blast of unstoppable, distorted proto-garage punk perfectly. It’s like having a feral dog snapping at your genitals whilst an Elvis lookalike stomps on your face – and that in musical terms is a very good thing indeed.

Absolutely love this. Watch the video. Watch it again. Go mental.
