A well deserved no.1 this week from new UK artist, Paige Kennedy. The Sugarcubes meets chamberpop is how we’re hearing this and why not. Every week we hear something amazing and new out of the UK, Paige is this week’s find, without a shadow of a doubt.
Brand new from Melbourne based Gravy Murphy and out now on Metal Postcard. Electronica with foreboding and the the videos got penguins, so we’re hooked. Like some of the tracks off his debut there’s a darker harder Pye Corner Audio thing going on here.
Reg Mombassa and friends (mental as anything) from 2014. It might sound jaunty but the message is clear as a bell.. homo sapiens stop being dicks. We love Reg.
5 The Fruitful Earth – Shake (134)
Don’t know anything about this band except this is what i’d hoped Alabama Shakes or The Kings of Leon would sound like or never did. Super funky acid jazzy rock . If Led Zep had moved to Ibiza this is what they’d have sounded like.
6 Peverelist – Left Hand(250)
The last time we heard Peverelist it was all a bit dour , now its great house tropicalia vibes but making sure to keep to strict on the dancefloor. Great new tune.
Now here’s a name you haven’t heard for a while. Yes he of the mighty Josef K and still releasing great music and even better still releasing on Belgium’s Crepsecule. We are going to start paying attention again.
