Premiere - Irish Trio Cloud Castle Lake's Dark, Elegant 'A Wolf Howling'

It takes most bands three or four albums to pluck up the sort of courage and experimentalism Cloud Castle Lake's debut EP 'Dandelion' seeps from every pore. One for fans of Atoms For Peace, Max Richter and Wild Beasts, the Dublin trio's first release is a heart-bruising ballet of monochrome guitars and sophisticated electronic fizz that marks Daniel McAuley, Brendan Jenkinson and Rory O'Connor as future trail-blazers. Don't believe us? Try the brilliant 'A Wolf Howling' on for size.

Protomartyr Q&A: 'The Only Reason I Threw Myself Into A Band At 37 Was Because I Made Terrible Life Decisions'

Protomartyr's second record 'Under Color of Official Right' was released earlier this year, and is already a strong contender for the title of album of the year. On it, the Detroit punk band tell tales of dodgy low-life's and the inner city turmoil that's rife in their poverty-stricken home, all with reference points that range from The Fall to James Joyce. I caught up with frontman Joe Casey recently, as he arrived in Baltimore for a live show on the band's last US tour.

Brighton-based boys Demob Happy have been making their case for being crowned the city's most exciting band for a while now with increasingly sweaty and raucous gigs both in their adopted hometown and further afield. They're backing that up with new single 'Suffer You', which has been rattling around our speakers for a while, and now comes backed with a slick new video.
