The Independent Culture


Real Fur - The Fool

Afrobeat drums and guitars dominate, but it's Real Fur's unstated funk bass that really steals the show. Truly innovative indie pop.

Kurt Vile - The Creature

Vile's contemporary take on trad-Americana is perfectly captured here. Like Townes Van Zandt with synths.

Founds - Holograms

This hotly tipped Australian sextet sound like a poppier Warpaint – spiralling, sensuous vocals, sparkling guitars and clever beats.

Rustie - Dreamzz

Inventive electro following hot on the heels of "Ultra Thizz". Both tracks appear on the coming 'Glass Swords' LP.

Love Inks - Rock On

Yes, this really is a David Essex cover. The band (below) retain Essex's deliberate vocal detachment but there's more than a hint of irony during the song's "rock on" refrain.

Jacques Greene - Allez Allez Mix

These 62 minutes of emotive new music are a teaser for the Canadian dubstep master's forthcoming tour.

Circles - Circles in Flight

Emotional indie from a band (below) that borrow Bloc Party's spiky guitar tone and Snow Patrol's ear for a catchy but slightly dull hook.

Eagulls - Possessed

Highly melodic post-punk. The band recently performed with Barometer faves IceAge.

Sea Pinks - Fountain Tesserae

Wonderfully psychedelic, lo-fi garage pop. Full of hooks, this is Nuggets-esque magic.
