Still Corners – Berlin Lovers

London-based dream-pop outfit Still Corners return with a brilliant new single, Berlin Lovers, taken from their forthcoming new LP Strange Pleasures. Stream and download the track for free below.

Strange Pleasures drops May 6.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Sacrilege

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have returned with Sacrilege, the first single from their forthcoming new LP Mosquito. I’ve got to be honest, when I first saw Mosquito’s pretty mental artwork I really didn’t know what to expect from it music wise. Sacrilege, thankfully, has completely eased any of my original doubts. This is an excellent track and a promising return from the New Yorkers, back by an awesome 20-person choir. Check it out.

Mosquito drops April 16, via Interscope.

Listen to the album’s first single, Retrograde below:

f y f e – St Tropez

f y f e has followed up his breakthrough single Solace with another simply irresistible dose of intelligent pop with substance. On his latest number, St Tropez, London-based f y f e impresses me yet again with his use of minimal yet effective instrumentation, gorgeous lyrics and another beautiful vocal performance. One to watch.

Local Channel – Arctic

Silver Lake, Los Angeles-based indie/shoegaze outfit Local Channel have just shared their excellent debut single Arctic, and made it available for free download. It’s a very promising start from the band that has me pretty stoked to hear more.

They plan on dropping an EP in March which I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for.

Keep Shelly In Athens – Madmen Love

Last year Sarah P collaborated with The New Division on their stunning single Night Escape and her vocals on that track literally blew me away. This morning I discovered the news that her band, Keep Shelly In Athens, will finally release their debut LP this July through Cascine Records. Their latest single Madmen Love sees the band displaying their darker side. Starting off rather ominously with some distorted instrumentals before Sarah P’s familiar vocals take command, it’s another stellar release by a really consistent band.

The Athens-based duo have already released two excellent EP’s that are worth checking out if you haven’t already.
