Lusts – Mouth Wash
Ever wondered what would happen if you took a song, covered it in glue and threw it into a pool of post punk? Leicester two-piece, Lusts, have- and it works beautifully. Mouthwash is a consistently riled up pop tune dressed in fuzz, synth and Stephen Morris style beats. There’s just something about this song that gives you the urge to move, or at least slowly sway your arms by your sides.
Pill – Misty Eyed Porno Reader
Brooklyn’s ‘Pill’ don’t only have an incredible knack for incredible song titles they can also make some pretty awesome sounds. It’s like heaped insanity, it’s like a Dali movie, it’s like Pill. It’s just incredible. Some of the best drumming we’ve heard this year.
Michael Baker – Dust and Bone
London based Michael Baker’s hypnotizing sound is soul stealing, irresistible and incredibly imaginative. ‘Dust and Bone’ is a strange and wonderful tune from his latest EP matching his voice with Georgia Mason, acoustic guitar and a laid back beat. An addictive acoustic sound with a taste of Bon Iver
Wolf Solent -Hold On
At first glance, this lo-fi infused pop song bares a strikingly obvious resemblance to The Velvet Underground, but it’s more like a New York Beatles. This charming tune is a fuzzy, folk work of art, radiating good vibes!
