I haven’t done this before but I need to expose all the great singles that I have received for review in the last few weeks. Here are 5 to get you going, I would love to know what you think of them.;
Mother “Pretty Face” – This tune from Oxford’s Mothers was released earlier this month and frankly, it is a proper banger. This classy single was produced by Ride frontman Mark Gardener. It is a song that eats into your psyche like a hot knife through butter. Radiohead would have been proud of this in 1994. It is very “out there” and suggests that Mothers have a great future.
Lady Lazarus – “Golden Heart” – this is a chilled ethereal anthem reminiscent of Julee Cruise on the Twin Peaks soundtrack. In another place and time, this would be a massive hit, so the least you can do is give it a spin, you will not be disappointed.
Wolves Like Us – “Oil Money” – this is a real heavy hardcore punk metal tune from Norway. The band has just released their fourth album, ‘Brittle Bones’, and if this song is anything to go by it will be awesome. It has an atmosphere of subdued menace and perfect punk production, it is riff laden but has oodles of melody and energy.
The Cabin Fever – “White Dwarf And A Supernova” – this reminds me of Gomez, Flaming Lips and is a real driving tune that draws you into its beating soulful heart of majestic music and does not let you go until you surrender to its abject beauty.
K Carter – “NBX” – a stunningly produced hip hop track that speaks of self-love in spite of a poor upbringing. K Carter oozes soul, empathy, and kindness. His ciphers are up there with the best of his contemporaries. I really need an album from this dude now!
