Music by Bergman: Milk Teeth

Tipped as one of Britain’s hottest rising rock bands Milk Teeth released the Smiling Politely and Sad Sack EPs before reaching a wider cult audience with their 2016 debut album Vile Child. Along the way, they’ve supported the likes of Refused, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, and Against Me!,

 Milk Teeth have released their first new music of the year. The band signed with Music For Nations back in July, with a new album released this 2020. It’s new track ‘Given Up’

Best Covers: The National “Never Tear Us Apart”

The National has released a cover of the INXS hit “Never Tear Us Apart,” recorded for an upcoming charity album benefiting the ongoing Australia bushfire relief efforts.

Titled Songs for Australia, the compilation was curated by Julia Stone, one half of the Australia indie folk duo Angus & Julia Stone.

Introducing…Born Idiot

Born Idiot is an indie pop band from Rennes (France) dealing with exoticism and cynicism. They have released the clip for Blue Is My Color, a title extracted from the next album of the band expected for September and which will be released on the French label Géographie (Marble Arch).

With Blue Is My Color, the group seeks to denounce the society that harms the living with increased use of machines. To illustrate this new, fairly sweet title, Born Idiot delivers a clip signed by Lucas Martin, which reveals a mechanical, decomposed and almost inhuman atmosphere, echoing the words of the song but slightly out of step with its sweetness.

The muses of La Musa: Låpsley

Låpsley, real name Holly Fletcher, is a British musician from Liverpool, who has amazed audiences across the world with her spacious, synth pop sound. At only 23, her young age is not an indication of her successful career, with her second album Through Water which was released past March 20th. However, with so much success coming to her at a young age, Låpsley has struggled with balancing the complexities of growing up with the pressures of fame.

Divus Julius presents: Melt Yourself Down

Formed in 2012, on the dawn of the UK Jazz explosion, Pete Wareham and his band – including saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings – have been the purveyors of sweaty, fast-paced ‘Jazz’ gigs. The London based band were one of the very first acts of the scene to make people excitedly question “What do you call this music?”

With two studio albums behind them, the self-titled debut and the 2016 release ‘Last Evenings On Earth’, they have a strong foundation on which to return. Melt Yourself Down have announced their third album, 100% YES. The London jazz six-piece have so far shared three tracks from the album, the latest one ‘Crocodile’

Hit of the week: PVA “Divine Intervention”

The London trio PVA brings together musicians Ella Harris, Josh Baxter, and Louis Satchell in service of danceable art-school pop music combining bits of disco, house, synthpop, new wave, dance-punk, et al. Their latest jam, “Divine Intervention,” is arriving via super-producer Dan Carey’s ever-reliable Speedy Wunderground label (which previously brought us Black Midi, Squid, and Black Country, New Road among others) with production by Carey himself. According to label co-runner Pierre Hall, “It reminds me of Patti Smith fronting Factory Floor,” which is pretty spot-on. The wheel is not being reinvented here, but man is it spinning.
