The Playlist: Iggy and the Stooges / Childhood / Ty Segall
Iggy and the Stooges
A typically aggressive rocker from the resurgent band's new LP 'Ready to Die'. Debuted live on 'The Colbert Report' last week.
One of the best bands to emerge from the revived UK indie scene this year, Childhood (pictured) draw as much influence from the dream pop that dominated 2010 as they do from former tour-mates Palma Violets.
Music for a Film 1
An instrumental cut that, as yet, isn't actually scheduled to appear on a film soundtrack. It is, however, the latest instalment of the Less Artists More Condos charity single series.
Gorgeous, percussion and vocal-led pop from Northern Ireland. One to watch.
The Fat Cat Records-signed art rocker is moving deeper into the realms of Kurt Vile-esque indie rock.
Debuted at Penn State last weekend, this track was one of several brand-new songs by the band that were caught on film and uploaded to YouTube.
A wonderfully surreal video was released for this new single last week.
