If you have ten minutes to spare and want to hear some good new music then check out these two demos by a new band from Brighton called Kins. You won’t be disappointed.
“Ken” is the latest single taken from Ex Cops’ debut album, True Hallucinations, with a video that pays serious homage to the Replacement’s classic anti-video “Bastards Of Young.” The album is out January 22, catch the video below.
Well here it is, Justin Timberlake’s first new song in over six years. JT dropped his new track “Suit & Tie” at midnight last night. “Suit & Tie,” features Jay-Z, and a pretty colourful backing track from producer Timbaland. I really like it.
With their new album Shaking The Habitual due on April 8 (which cannot come quick enough), The Knife have just announced a few dates for their European tour later this Spring. I think I speak for everyone when I say FUCK. YEAH!

Yeah Yeah Yeahs shared a few more details about their new album today. It’s called Mosquito, and according to Karen O “The album is extremely lo-fi.” TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek teamed up with Nick Launay to produce it. James Murphy produces a song on it called “Nitrous Batcave” which sounds like it could be pretty dope.
Mosquito is out 4/16 on Interscope.
Luxembourg-based producer Vic Miranda and vocalist Vicki Glass, aka Love Echo, have announced the release of their highly anticipated debut LP, I Promise You Always The Sky. With a few tracks surfacing online we can now check out their pretty new track ‘Daybreak’. It’s mixes elements of Chillwave, Electronic Pop and Ambiance to create a really lush sound.
It’s also worth checking out their excellent cover of The Cure’s “Lovecats”.
Brighton-based Traams have an absolute cracker of a tune out called ‘Peggy’. It clocks in at just 1:39 minutes in length but it’s an excellent blast of Valensi/Hammond Jr style guitar playing and a pretty catchy “ooh” chorus. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this lot.
Holopaw‘s latest album Academy Songs, Volume I is due out next week on the 15th. “We Are The Virgin Snow” is the latest single taken from that album, and it’s pretty decent track with some really nice guitar playing to back up John Orth’s quavery voice.
I didn’t really take to Night Panther’s previous single ‘Fever’ but I’m really liking their new track, ‘Fire’. It reminds me of Local Natives in a way. Stream and download below.
Thankfully it didn’t take that long for the new Destiny’s Child single to arrive. Just a day after Beyoncé’s announcement the band would release ‘Nuclear’, their first single in eight years, the song is now streaming online. The track was produced by Pharrell and Beyoncé and it will appear on the groups new career spanning compilation Love Songs, due January 29.
