Sometimes music can be all about raw, animalistic naughtiness. There’s something about a song or record that’s so steeped in lustful ambience that it gets a hold and never lets go – whether it be through a silky bassline, a sketchy guitar riff or lyrics that outright detail a sordid affair, music can be sexy. So imagine my surprise when a band named Sexghost submits their new EP Sexghost//Sexhoax, ooh boy…
Getting to feature local talent is one of my favourite things to do as a music blogger. It even beats a mass-deletion of emails, it’s that good. The Recoupes are a fourpiece from Essex and this is their new single “LovinIt”. Not to be confused with a certain diddy on a certain fast food advert, this young band look set to make a big first impression on me with this track.
Atlum Schema is the moniker of singer-songwriter Andy Mort and this is his latest EP The Arrow of Time. Often influenced by Andy’s current life decisions, the music of Atlum Schema brings a lot of personality and emotion to it, and The Arrow of Time is no exception. Andy recently landed a job as a part time undertaker back in 2015, and it’s clear that such a profession has contributed to the overall sound of this new EP to great effect.
Hot damn, HOTTTT DAMNNN am I excited to talk about this track today. “Off Guard” is the new single from Carl North & The Lonely Hearts and boy does it catch you off guard. The five piece from Manchester are set to release an official debut single (“Worst of You”) soon and have offered “Off Guard” as a taste of what to expect. So if you’re in the mood for a bowl of hip swinging, bone shaking rock n roll then…let’s have seconds.
Holy shit this is good. Two Islands launched their mark on the music scene with a stomping debut in “Heaven” back in March, and have returned with “Still Life” – a second taste of what to expect from this mysterious group from Liverpool.
Redwood Skyline is a band from San Francisco (Francisco, that’s fun to say) and this is their latest single “The River”. These guys are only just getting started in the world of making music and well, they seem to be onto something good here.
