If you’re into bands like Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls, then I suggest checking out Brisbane four-piece Major Leagues and their awesome track, Endless Drain. This is a really irresistible track, with infectious melodies and a real carefree feel to it as well.
Major Leagues are supporting The Preatures this September. If you’ve slept on their recent single, Is This How You Feel?, then check that out too. It’s one of my favourite tunes of the year.
Here’s the official video for Endless Drain.
King Krule has shared an elegant new track from his eagerly-anticipated debut record, 6 Feet Beneath The Moon. The sentimental Neptune Estate sees Archie Marshall displaying a slightly more romantic side this time around, and with the use of trip-hop style instrumentals alongside his touching yet moody lyrics he’s let loose yet another sublime release. Take a listen to it below.
6 Feet Beneath The Moon drops August 24 on XL Recordings.
Blouse drop their sophomore record Imperium this September via Captured Tracks. A Feeling Like This, the forthcoming albums lead single, is a blissed-out slice of hazy dream pop with sultry vocals courtesy of the effortlessly cool, Charlie Hilton. It’s a pretty solid track, stream it below.
Imperium drops September 17 on Captured Tracks.
If you’re a fan of Patrick Watson, Bon Iver and Keaton Henson, then I suggest checking out this beautiful new track by RY X. Similar to one of Keaton Henson’s recent tracks, the heartbreaking Sweetheart, What Have You Done To Us, Berlin is a heart-wrenching and deeply personal track built around some very pretty yet emotional vocals and tender instrumentals. I don’t suggest listening to this if you’ve got the hangover blues.
RY X’s Berlin EP will be released August 28. Pre-order it here.

Knoxville, Tennessee’s one man band Ryan Boos, aka Nomadic Firs, has uploaded a cool new song onto his SoundCloud page called Desert Radio.
It’s a really inviting and chilled out track that’ll ease you in nicely to the weekend.
The artwork for the track came from one of his daughter Holly’s art classes. How nice!

While the whole world eagerly awaits the release of Doris, Earl Sweatshirt keeps teasing us ahead of its release with a string of dope cuts like Chum, Hive and Whoa.

Jon Hopkins has dropped a new version of Breathe This Air featuring vocals from Purity Ring’s Megan James, and it’s without doubt one of the most exquisite remixes I’ve heard in quite some time.
Breathe This Air, which originally appeared on Hopkins’ most recent record Immunity, has been completely transformed into something much more beautiful and shimmering by Megan James’ vocals.
The new version of the track will be available digitally from September 23.
Grab a copy of Hopkins’ latest record Immunity today via Domino Records.
Waiting In The Night is the first single to be taken from Forest Fire‘s upcoming new record, Screens. The New York experimental-indie outfit have a gently melodic sound that’s very appealing, this track is very enjoyable.
Screens drops September 2 on Fat Cat Records.
Fans of Delorean’s incredible remix of Glasser’s Treasury Of We, should be as stoked as I am about the labelmates collaborating on Destitute Time.
Taken from the Spanish electronic-indie group’s forthcoming new record Apar, Destitute Time features guest vocals from Cameron Mesirow. It’s another upbeat and euphoric release from by the group who are renowned for knocking out irresistible tunes like this in the past.
Don’t take my word for it? Fine, check out this badboy then.
Apar drops September 10 on True Panther. Pre-order it here.
