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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

best of the weekAnother seven days have come and gone, although these felt infinitely more dangerous than any others. Hats off to Ewan McGregor at least this week!

If nothing else it means new songs from those horrified by the new leader of the free world – so to kick us off we have offerings from Suuns, Meat Wave, Father John Misty and an update on a protest song classic from Billy Bragg. Elsewhere a raw articulation of grief from Mount Eerie, and some sparkling new releases from none others than Real Estate’s Byrds-ian jangle, Promised Land Sound’s space-country, FEWS’ post-punk motorik squall, some sunny indie from Tim Darcy (of Ought), garage-grunge from Meatbodies, a brilliant slab of shoegazey beach-punk from Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and to round it all off a new song from power-pop-punks White Reaper.

Twelve songs – a perfect playlist to kick off the weekend.

Louisville power trio White Reaper combine sparkling hooks and fluid, fluttering rhythms to create psychedelia-tinged garage punk that make heads bob without sacrificing an ounce of sonic bite.

Here is the video for the infectious Cool, the first track from their debut six-track EP, and check out Half Bad from it too…

Mad Mackerel Recommends... White Reaper

Louisville, Kentucky’s White Reaper are a raucous and strident three piece that combine sparkling hooks with fluid, fluttering rhythms to create psychedelia-tinged garage punk that doesn’t sacrifice an ounce of sonic bite.

Their self-titled debut EP is a six-song blitzkrieg that traces the band’s present and future. Check out the dingy and jangly single Conspirator and the more urgent, spasmodic jerkiness of Half Bad complete with freaky keyboard riff….
