And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead…


The second release from the indie heavyweights' forthcoming eighth album, 'Lost Songs'. Despite the title, the LP is not an outtakes/oddities release; it features only new songs.



It's been a while since an OddFuture member dropped a new track, but on this beat-heavy number Left Brain and Hodgy Beats prove the collective packed with talent and ambition (above).

Tame Impala

Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

A band going from strength to strength, Tame Impala are quickly shaking off their image as alt-rock also-rans. This track, from the 7-inch of the same name, showcases the band's biggest chorus yet.

Still Corners


The 'next big thing'-hype has died down since the release of their debut LP, but that has allowed the London band to focus on perfecting their take on expansive 80s-influenced synth-pop.


Punk Rock / Cody

The San Francisco-based black metal group cover two Mogwai tracks on their forthcoming split 12'' release with fellow goth rockers Bosse-de-Nage.

Saturday Looks Good To Me


Feel-good indie pop from a band that has been well and truly off the radar since the late Noughties.
