She Rides Tigers - Cousin Kula - Frankie Lee - Lady Nade - James Clayton - Wovoka Gentle

Image
From She Rides Tigers we have the debut album 'Scars' to stream in full, the trio deliver a powerful mixture of rock styles with enough pop sensibilities to ensure a mass of musical hooks along the way. Cousin Kula's 'Stacked' sees the psych pop element of the band in full flow, this is an imaginative song where their jazz influences are just nudging away in the musical arrangement. 'In The Blue' from Frankie Lee takes on the subject of ageing and loss and yet adds a tender and quite beautiful feel with this fine song. Lady Nade's fabulous vocals are a perfect fit for soul and jazz, so it's no surprise that 'Drive Home Safely' (a mixture of both genres) is simply wonderful. James Clayton sent us Avalene with a few personal comments, the song did the rest and with pleasure it's shared below. Wovoka Gentle have given us another song from their forthcoming album which includes The Kids Club Kampala Choir, it's our fifth feature for the …

Hannah Scott - Illuminine ft. Hannah Corinne - Mountain Head - In Caravans

Image
We featured Hannah Scott's album "Pieces of the Night" last summer and are really pleased to share her latest single 'Walk A Wire' a vibrant modern folk song with bags of energy. 'The Many Deaths Of Letting Go' from Illuminine and featuring Hannah Corinne on vocals is a dreamy, gentle song that soothes and pleases. Mountain Head's alt rocker 'We Stole Your Head' touches on the information overload that so often distracts us, it does so with some fine hooks and a very engaging musical arrangement. The recent E.P release from Denmark's In Caravans is worth catching up with, the four songs are infectious as the band carve out their own quite individual and attractive sounds.

Fanclub - Blaire - Beverly Kills - Mystery Art Orchestra

Image
'Imprint' from Fanclub is a beautifully flowing song with appealing vocals and a finely arranged musical back drop. With their music aptly described as Punkgaze, Blaire give us 'Mimer' a distinct and hook filled song that helps explain their musics description. Gothenburg’s Beverly Kills might have created a stir locally, however 'In This Dim Light' might well be bright enough (pun intended) for their music to get noticed far and wide. We have the A side and one of the two B sides from Mystery Art Orchestra's new single as the Berlin based band demonstrate just how good their take on post punk music is!

Fanclub - Imprint.

Fanclub have just shared their new single "Imprint". Fanclub is Mike Lee, Leslie Crunkilton, and Daniel Schmidt from Austin, TX. Mike and Leslie immediately knew they wanted to craft songs driven by their love of all things twee, indie, and dreamy.

What they didn’t expect was that the songs would come out as the most mature and da…

Honey Moon have released 'IF I Could Only Dream' a fresh and vibrant jangle pop song that exudes classic pop vibes from decades ago. Toronto duo Swanes have created a lush, rhythmic and dreamy electronic piece in the form of 'Dreams Of Iceland'. Irish electronic-pop duo, Le Boom have teamed up with Æ MAK to share 'Dancing Bug' accompanied now with a fabulous video, adding a little extra to this upbeat song. 

Honey Moon - If I Could Only Dream.

London jangle-pop crooners Honey Moon stomp into 2019 with new single If I Could Only Dream, teaming up once more with Manchester label Heist or Hit  (Her’s, Pizzagirl, Baywaves, Guest Singer). It’s the first jangly slice of sound the quintet have delivered since last year’s acclaimed Four More From… EP, which drew fans from tastemaker tomes DIY and DORK magazine to BBC 6 Music and legendary cratedigger Elton John.

Distilling their trademark doo-wop sound to first principles on the new single, Honey Moon capture snatched …
