Playlist: Crystal Castles / Jason Lytle / Death Grips / Field Music / Lust For Youth / Tennis
Wrath of God
The electro-indie pioneers' (above left) new single that captures the band's love of goth and heavy dance. Alice Glass' fragile yet cutting vocals are a highlight.
Get Up and Go
The second single from the Grandaddy frontman's latest solo record. Much like his day-band's work, Lytle's solo career is chronically underrated.
The stand-out track from DG's self-leaked album 'The Money Store'. The leak has left DG estranged from Columbia Records, with the label shutting the band's website down earlier this week.
Born Again Cretin
The Sunderland band follow-up their Mercury Prize nomination with this excellent Robert Wyatt cover. Field Music have previously covered Syd Barrett and Pet Shop Boys.
Lust For Youth
Dark post-punk from Swedish multi-instrumentalist Hannes Norrvide. Driven by cold, haunting synths, this track is one of three new songs on the re-release of his debut LP.
One of the more underrated bands of modern times tackle a Television classic. Tennis (above right) will be heading into the studio to record album number three very soon.
