F.U.R.S. - 'Just Kids'

F.U.R.S. - 'Just Kids'

Apparently named after the 19th century Leopold von Sacher Masoch novel Venus In Furs (the caps and full stops are all their own idea, btw) F.U.R.S create gothic girl-group drama-pop that imagines what would happen if Garbage met Cults. Not a lot,...

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - 'Hate The Taste'

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - 'Hate The Taste'

BRMC have been in the medley game for donkey’s years, and here roll out the knockout combo of Primal Scream’s ‘Country Girl’ and T.Rex’s ‘Get It On’. It’s about as ground-breaking as a candyfloss drill, but when they get stuck into...

Miles Kane - 'Taking Over'

Miles Kane - 'Taking Over'

In which Miles answers those ‘throwback’ accusations with an audacious medley of The Who’s ‘I Can’t Explain’, ELO’s ‘Wild West Hero’ and Norman Greenbaum’s ‘Spirit In The Sky’. The last one’s a good choice because it’s...

10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week (14/08/2013)

MGMT - 'Your Life Is A Lie' Are you sitting down? Then listen. Mock The Week is scripted. Your diet is mostly horse. Pharmaceutical companies won’t allow you to be cured of whatever disease they say you’ve got. Social networking is merely...

DJ Fresh vs Diplo feat. Dominique Young Unique - 'Earthquake'

DJ Fresh vs Diplo feat. Dominique Young Unique...

We hoped for a cataclysmic, plate-rending dance-pop beast, but instead it’s another one of Diplo’s increasingly dated, charmless and grating rent-a-bangers with minimal input from the other two. I mean, I’m sure it’d seem fine if you’re...

Miley Cyrus - 'We Can't Stop'

Miley Cyrus - 'We Can't Stop'

As if the failed transition from child star to credibly sexy adult female pop star wasn’t embarrassing enough, avert your eyes from the car-crash of Miley talking ghetto on this Rihanna rip-off. “We run ting/Nobody run we/All my ladies with...

Rudimental feat. Foxes - 'Right Here'

Rudimental feat. Foxes - 'Right Here'

Rudimental and Foxes do the classy, moody, female-vocal jungle-pop thing so well you might mistake it for Katy B, until they fluff it with a rocky wig-out ending. Our Katy wouldn’t do that. Emily Mackay

The Vaccines - 'Melody Calling'

The Vaccines - 'Melody Calling'

The sweet muse of tune calls, and Justin Young, for once, listens. The result is an oddly unramshackle, non-jaunty, smooth and even mellow version of The Vaccines, with shades of Teenage Fanclub and Big Star. It’s… nice. We could get used to...

Little Green Cars - 'My Love Took Me Down To The River To Silence Me'

Little Green Cars - 'My Love Took Me Down To...

If you look at this song title and imagine a Nick Cave-and-PJ Harvey-licking-each-others’-legs-style murder ballad, come join me on the dejected bench of disappointment. If, on the other hand, you think of a folk-stompy Irish feint at Arcade...

10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week (06/08/2013)

TV On The Radio - 'Mercy' Looks like nowhere is safe from the gaze of bands looking for new and exciting ways to announce their return. Kanye West did it via a projector on the walls of various buildings around the world. Arcade Fire recently...
