Welcome back to a collection of songs that stood out to me in the last two weeks. Some old favourites and some new discoveries. Now go see them live!
Bambara - Mythic Love Their Europe tour was postponed so many times that the NYC goth-punks they had time to record a new album, just in time for their 2022 tour.
Egyptian Blue - Salt The new EB single is a tune - but can't compare to the energy of their live shows. If you have the chance: Check them out!
Sprints - Modern Job The Irish punks are currently touring the UK for the first time and seeing them is a must! They were ending their set with a cover of Wet Leg's "Chaise Longue" that is honestly better than the original.
Frankie and the Witch Fingers - Cookin' Psych, Funk, Krautrock - Cookin' is a wild mix of genres that will make you boogie.
Psychedelic Porn Crumpets - Lava Lamp Pisco After releasing an album earlier this year, PPC are back with another psych-rock banger.
Boy Harsher - Tower Boy Harsher always loved soundtracks. So it makes sense that they decided to release a short film, "The Runner", they wrote the soundtrack for.
Kælan Mikla - Svört Augu The Icelandic darkwave witches released their new album "Undir Köldum Norðurljósum" last week.
Emma Ruth Rundle - Blooms of Oblivion The second single of Emma's upcoming album "Engine of Hell" is incredibly personal. Accompanied by acoustic guitar, she tells a tale of love, hate and addiction.
W.H. Lung - Ways of Seeing For anyone into synchs and indie, W.H. Lung are the perfect band. Their new album "Vanities" is out now.
False Advertising - Personal Space Indie-rock trio False Advertising signed to Alcopop! and Personal Space is the first taste of what's to come.
KEG - Farmhands My first reaction to KEG's Farmhands was "Why is every band trying to sound like Squid right now?". In KEGs defence, the other songs on their EP "Assembly" feature a variety of styles. And does it really matter? Farmhands is a tune!
