Ripsy May: ‘Dare’

Filmed on location in White Sands, New Mexico, LA-based musician Ripsy May has revealed her consummate new video for triumphant new single, ‘Dare’.  The Latvian-born London singer-songwriter’s video makes me want to disappear without telling anyone and set up location on a sandy plain equally as mesmerising.  Swelling with atmosphere, ‘Dare‘, is compelling, righteous and full of intricate…

The Winter Gypsy: Took Me By

Adelaide’s The Winter Gypsy have already started gaining mounting praise as a new band to keep a close eye on. The sextet are the result of 4 previous bands joining together to form as they put it, “a conclusion”. Their latest release ‘Took Me By’ is as captivating visually, thanks to Gerard Wood, as it…

The So So Glos: ‘Missionary’

Brooklyn’s The So So Glos continue their punk assault with new video ‘Missionary’. With a “give zero fucks” ethos, they have built a reputation for being true DIY pioneers.

Fliptrix – ‘Patterns Of Escapism’

Following a two year hiatus, BBC Radio 1 Extra favourite, Fliptrix returns with the no holds barred ‘Patterns Of Escapism‘. Taken from his 6th solo long player, the London-based producer is a teacher in his own classroom delivering passion with booming authority. Hectoring, dropping streetwise politics all to the backdrop of an enslaving production. This is a…

Almost…

Having already played with a number of bands already including the likes of Hot Chip, Sarah Jones has now debuted her solo project, Pillow Person. Her first single, ‘Go Ahead’, has a charm that permeates through every last moment. Pushing away the frivolity and oddities, it leaves a serious undertone that really makes this very special. This…

Pyke: ‘Follow Me’

Having recently released their stunning debut album Detox, Norweigan duo Pyke have released another taster, ‘Follow Me’.  This is a remarkable song,  one which burrows beneath the surface and recovers something both seductive and strange. The key changes are notable and take the song in a fascinating and unexpected direction. A conceptually insightful journey ensues and one that…

Alev Lenz: ‘If Love’

‘If Love’ is the sensational new release taken from Alev Lenz‘s latest album, Two-Headed Girl.  This is beautiful, genuine, considered songwriting. A triumph of minimalism, this lays bare a singer’s heart as honestly and effectively as you are likely to hear.

Bearstronaut: ‘Tuscon’

Having supported the likes of Bat For Lashes and Vampire Weekend to name a couple, Boston quartet Bearstronaut have an already impeccable CV.  Taken from their latest EP, Telecoast, their new track ‘Tuscon’ has a mercantile quality and musically, it’s clearly keen to accommodate its imagined audience. Their personality and songwriting quirks shine through, they’re making…
