Hit of the week: Kasabian ‘You’re In Love With A Psycho’

Against uncertain odds, Kasabian have managed to weather British rock and roll’s decade-long storm, enduring at a time when many of their fellow bands from the early 2000s have faded from public eye. The Leicester crew’s style has changed a bit in recent years, and they’ve just delivered their sixth studio album, For Crying Out Loud,.

You’re In Love With A Psycho’ is the first single to be lifted from Kasabian’s new album For Crying Out Loud .

Hit of the week: Flume “Hyperreal”

Flume has once again teamed up with Kucka for a new bonus track called ‘Hyperreal’. The new track was to be an exclusive addition to the vinyl release of Skin Companion EP II, but Flume decided to make it available in digital form as well.

It’s a thumping, glitchy club track packed with bass and off kilter syncopation. Flume has woven explosions, claps, distortion and kick drums together with Kucka’s soprano to create an unnerving, deep dark beast.

Hit of the week: Phoenix ‘J-Boy’

Phoenix are gearing up to release their new album Ti Amo this summer and today you can hear its opener and first single ‘J-Boy’.

The band opened up about the album in a recent New York Times profile, describing a long recording process in Paris during extremely fraught political times. Despite that, they described Ti Amo as “incredibly colorful” and there isn’t a better way to describe this first taste.

At least judging by ‘J-Boy’, the French rockers seem to be inching further away from their previous crunchy, dueling guitar-driven sound and more towards the synth-driven power pop they explored on Bankrupt!.

Hit of the week: Royal Blood “Lights Out”

British rock band Royal Blood have announced a new album How Did We Get So Dark? due out June 16, 2017, via Warner Bros. Records. In support of this, the duo have shared the album’s lead single “Lights Out” with an accompanied music video. They’ve also announced a slew of United States tour dates, kicking off June 2 at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston.

Hit of the week: Novo Amor “Carry You”

Welsh multi-instrumentlist Novo Amor is sharing beautiful new cut “Carry You”, the first track from new EP Bathing BeachNovo Amor – aka Ali Lacey – describes the song as “an expression of nostalgia, a wistful nod to to a certain period of time.” The song is rich and full, and despite a wealth of layers building towards the heavens, there’s a bold sense of freedom.

 

Hit of the week: Slowdive “Sugar for the Pill”

The reunited shoegaze outfit formally detailed the self-titled LP, which will hit shelves May 5th through Dead Oceans.

The long-awaited follow-up to 1995’s Pygmalion was recorded at the band’s “talismanic Oxfordshire haunt, The Courtyard,” and was mixed at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear). A press release describes this fourth full-length as the English shoegaze outfit’s “most direct material to date,” while also noting that it isn’t meant to be “a trip down memory lane.”

Principal songwriter Neil Halstead says that their 2014 reunion tour had an impact on the making of the new album. Along with the LP news, Slowdive have shared the music video for “Sugar for the Pill”
