The Smith Street Band - Death To The Lads
Because, frankly, lad culture's death cannot come too soon and shall not be mourned. Off the Melbourne outfit's fourth LP More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me.
The Gods Themselves - Tech Boys
Do they mean me? Possibly. Anyway, I don't even have a moustache. These are from Seattle and the album Be My Animal came out in January.
She Drew The Gun - No Hole In My Head
A cover of a 1960s protest song by Malvina Reynolds, this is on the album Memories Of Another Future which came out last month.
Lichen Gumbo - Country Boy
To Finland next and a stripped down piece off the album Boilin'. About as lo-fi as it gets.
Kingsley Chapman and The Murder - Dead Horses
The last ever track from these. Sad times. Still worth following on social media though as Chapman pursues other avenues.
Local Girls - Yeah Roy
You know it's all about new music, but this is over 4 years old now. Well I heard it in the week and I like it and so I'm playing it. Off the album Deluxe Kicks.
Odd Couple - Am I Evil?
Berlin now, and a track off the album Flügge which came out last winter. Very psych.
Shrinking Minds - Something Better
More psych-influenced stuff now, this time from Liverpool's next big thing. This came out on March 3.
Rift|Fault - Bike Lane
Friend of the show Nat Lyon with his new project, a collaboration with Aimee Kanzler. The EP is EP001 and came out April 1.
The Darling Buds - Complicated
New stuff from The Darling Buds, their first stuff in over 25 years. The EP is called Evergreen and is out on the 21st.
Clustersun - Raw Nerve
To Catania in Italy now and isn't this good? The LP Surfacing To Breathe is out in May.
Drahla - Fictional Decision
Bit closer to home now for some drone/fuzz from Leeds. This came out last autumn.
Sal Boca - Feel The Life
More great stuff from Paul Foster, aka Dementio13, this time along with Caroline Moore, Claire James and Neil McCann. Recorded between 2001 and 2002, it was released last month.
Kelly Lee Owens - Anxi ft Jenny Hval
Off the terrific self-titled album which is out now from the frankly ridiculously talented Owens. She'll go far.
Die Verboten - White Island
Another one from a wee while ago, 2015 in fact. Die Verboten are the Dewaele brothers, David and Stephen, who you may be more familiar with in their Soulwax guise. Off the LP 2007, confusingly.
That'll do you for a week, I reckon.
