5 Tracks You Need To Hear This Week (30/05/16)




Richard Lomax – Choose Your Own Adventure

A step away from his sometimes acoustic folk stylings, Richard Lomax’s upcoming single Choose Your Own Adventure (June 24th, through Sotones Records) is dirtier, grittier outing with bigger guitars and more haunting beats but keeps hold of Richard’s irresistibly  unique vocal. His bard like style of guiding us through a song has always worked but some how fits perfectly with distorted riffs and almost tired, relaxed style of this latest single taken form upcoming second album “Postcards & Love-letters (From Somewhere You’ve Never Heard Of)”




DBFC – Autonomic

Hypnotic, enticing and simply cool are the only words to describe the latest single from Paris electronic group DBFC. A trance inducing beat, and slick pop melody fitted around a subtle wall of noise that wraps it self around you and won’t let go.


NO JOY – A Thorn in Garland’s Side

They’re Montreal Shoegaze band who’s bendy guitars and strategical use of dynamics in their latest single ‘A Thorn in Garland’s Side’ leaves your head bent, warped and wanting more. No Joy have been going around six years now and are currently playing shows in the Europe to so the rest of the world what they’ve been missing, catch them in the UK June 5th in guilford and 6th at Londons Moth Club, all building up to their Drool Sucker EP through Top Shelf on July 15th.




Gregory Alan Isakov – Liars

Some music stirs the soul in a way nothing else can, Gregory Alan Isakovs latest single does just that through his haunting vocal and gentle, exhausted guitar, in a song that layers it’s discreet, hidden melodies to perfection as it gradually evolves in to an epic show case of emotion through music in this cinematic barrage of beautiful noise.


The Record Summer – Prizefight

The first track in six years for The Record Summer, Prizefight is a laid out stopped back tune packed with relaxed summer vibes. Beautiful guitar and heavenly piano match the smooth vocal to create a stunning noise somewhere between The 1975 and Death Cab.

Eskimeaux – I Admit I’m Scared

It tiptoes into your ears and then shoots into the sky after a subtle build up before carefully landing with grace. A beautiful work that spans and evokes emotion. The magnificently hypnotic vocal is only made more encapsulating by heart healing lyrics.

Richard Lomax – Hôtel X 

Staring off like something out of Pulps ‘This Is Hardcore’ it’s a tune layered with beautiful guitar riffs and enticing lyrics from the Mancunian artists album ‘Down There For Dancing’. Just one excerpt from a great album but a perfect way to set the tone with a racing dynamic showcasing some of the best new Indie rock around.

The Maccabees – Marks to Prove

One of Britain’s most under sold bands is back with an incredible track that surfs through tempo and noise. It’s every thing we’ve come to expect from The Maccabees with a little more Garage rock in for good measure. An absolute guitar gem dictated by Orlando Weeks vocals and an exciting insight into the up coming album.

Worst Party Ever- Kicking (Myself In The Face)

Taken from their EP released at the end of February, which is frankly one best things we’ve heard this year, ‘Kicking’ is an energetic example of just what the underground American scene is capable of right now. This songs tinny guitars and awesome lyrics bring to mind bands Modern Baseball and Los Campesinos!. WPE are Florida based and creating exciting honest music that’ll leave you needing more.

Tame Impala – Cause I’m A Man

The Australian Psych-Rock heroes latest effort is a slow synth driven ballad that could easily pass as a 10cc B-side, which really isn’t a bad thing. It’s might be a step away from what people are expecting from the new album, but it works perfectly.
