Playlist: Crystal Castles / Jason Lytle / Death Grips / Field Music / Lust For Youth / Tennis

 

 

Crystal Castles

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.

------

Jason Lytle

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.

------

Death Grips

Deep Web

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.

------

Field Music

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

Behind Curtains

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.

------

Tennis

Guiding Light

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.
