Los Porcos – ‘CFW’

Former Wu Lyf-ers do the yacht-rock thing complete with the on-point hustle of Hall & Oates. ‘CFW’ is just the right amount of sleazy, pitched somewhere between your funny uncle…

Thirty Seconds To Mars – ‘Do Or Die’

The sort of song that makes you want to write a screenplay, move to LA, suck a producer’s cock, get the green light, cast Jared Leto and film a rom-com…

Rainer – ‘Girls’

Like a pass-the-parcel at a metaphor party, there are layers upon layers to unwrap on this offering from singer Rebekah Raa and producer Casually Here. The London duo create a…

Baby Strange – ‘Friend’

Two minutes of smash-and-grab punk from three Glaswegian lads. If you put Palma Violets and The Replacements in a blender and set the speed up to ‘high’ you’d get a…

Society – ’14 Hours’

The second single from James Girdler’s mystery-cloaked project is a rolling, sad-eyed soul number you can imagine hearing in a cult ’70s film playing over a montage of a good-looking…

Cyril Hahn – ‘Perfect Form’

Some people think they’re so sexy they never shut up about it (Justin Timberlake, Right Said Fred), but what they don’t realise is that playing things cool and understated is…

Biffy Clyro – ‘Victory Over The Sun’

It starts off all acoustic and contemplative, but the thing about Biffy is that they’ve got rock souls that just want to break out, and they will not be denied.…

10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week (05/09/2013)

Sleigh Bells - 'Bitter Rivals' Bringing up Sleigh Bells in conversation is surprisingly risky. Some people consider the duo nothing more than Daphne & Celeste by way of Skrillex –…

Glass Animals – ‘Black Mambo’

This Oxford quartet seem bookishly sexy, distracting themselves with unseemly thoughts in the science section of the library in ways unseen since Alt-J. ‘Black Mambo’ is a dark and warped…

Mutya Keisha Siobhan – ‘Flatline’

Several weeks ago I went to see The Sugaba… whoops, let’s start that again. Several weeks ago I went to see MKS with very little confidence. Within minutes I realised…

The Lumineers – ‘Submarines’

Not entirely sure how, in a post-Mumfords world, I’ve managed to get through the past year unaware of this band. Apparently they’re massive. On the strength of ‘Submarines’, I can…

Deap Valley – ‘Bad For My Body’

“If our mothers only knew, the trouble that we get into…” Hot leather chaps, I love Deap Vally. Sporting knuckledusters, playing pool, riding motorcycles and jumping on trampolines are just…
