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.Reuse content
