There's been a scrappy demo of Kagoule's 'Made Of Concrete' floating about for ages now. It's always been a popular tune - a signpost as to where the Nottingham band's capabilities lie.
Leeds heroes Menace Beach release new EP 'Lowtalker' on Memphis Industries on January 13, and we've got the premiere of 'Fortune Teller', taken from it, below. It's all about that sleepy twin guitar/Farfisa riff that kicks things off – busy as fuck and yet one of the most instantly-alluring things we've heard all year.
Fast-rising Hampshire duo Rad Frü release their debut AA-single 'Metal Bar'/'Tempting Meat' this week, via Caledonia Records. We've got the latter, which sees the boys live out all their inner Led Zep fantasies - to stream below. Catch them live this Wednesday (December 11) at The Islington in London.
Did you know there are over 3,000 species of louse? Depending on type, the wingless insects either suck or chew on blood, skin and pus to get their fill. Obstinate, gross and direct, you've got to admire them. Loom's blistering new EP is called 'Lice' and it'll suck the blood from your brain and command your total attention. The five tracks include new single 'Lice', versions of 'I Get A Taste', 'Acid King City', 'Salt' and a cover of early 90s noise band The Jesus Lizard's pleasingly disorientating 'Seasick'.
