The Magic Gang, 'She Won't Ghost' - Track Exclusive

Brighton's Magic Gang seem to be everywhere at the minute – various members of the band popped up on the Beech Coma compilation we put live earlier this week, and now we've got another new track from them, 'She Won't Ghost'. There's no release date for it, no official word on what it's even for: just a new tune they're putting out there to tie in with their UK tour.

Happyness, 'Great Minds Think Alike, All Brains Taste The Same' - Track Exclusive

Happyness formed in South London, but there's something about their sun-bleached slacker rock that makes you feel strangely like you're sitting in the college dorm of a character from a 90s American teen drama, flicking through a vinyl collection accrued at trendy Santa Monica flea markets. Maybe it's something to do with the long list of US indie-pop favourites the rising trio's sound cribs from.

Baby Strange, 'Distance Yourself' - Track Exclusive

Glasgow trio Baby Strange first popped up on our radars with a handful of gloriously scuzzy demos back in 2012. They've been playing the long game since, sporadically dropping singles like debut 'Pure Evil' and follow-up 'Never Enough'. 'Distance Yourself' is next in line and it's sparser than anything the three have done before, relying on creeping, wire-thin guitar lines for the most part before it erupts in a burst of fuzz, adding more fury to frontman Johnny Madden's laments about people "trying to take our fun".
