Sam Valdez – It’s Alright

#NewMusic from Los Angeles, USA

Sam Valdez is from Nevada but now resides in Los Angeles, USA. Her new single ‘It’s Alright’ put us right in the middle of the dusty Nevada desert with its authentic Americana Indie Folk sound. Though her voice may come across with soft innocence, it certainly doesn’t lack impact and her lyrics contain much deeper meanings. Listen up!

Dagny – Love You Like That

#NewMusic from Tromsø, Norway

Dagny is from Tromsø, Norway (like way in the north where it’s seriously cold). She sure knows how to pen a catchy pop tune with plenty of warmth. Her latest track ‘Love You Like That’ is exactly that. It also made us want to find a lighter and hold in the air during the intro. Just saying.

Yellow Days – Holding On

#NewMusic from Haslemere, England

Yellow Days (or George van den Broek to his bank manager) is from Haslemere, UK. You’ve probably heard some of his pretty exceptional music already. If you haven’t, then his latest track ‘Holding On’ is a great place to start.

A melancholy windy beach stroll of a tune. We’re pretty sure you can hear the tears of a lonely seagull falling into empty bags of fish and chips between notes on the organ riff at the end.

Carmody – Like That

#NewMusic from London, England

Carmody is a singer/songwriter from London, UK. She writes the most serene tracks, her latest offering ‘Like That’ is no exception.

The song begins with her faultless, cloud-light vocal soaring above a tranquil lake of music. Whilst sonic-stones hit the water and send ripples through the song as you head into the chorus, her vocal presence remains strong and unwavering. Let this one calm you after your hectic week.

Gaffa Tape Sandy – Beehive

#NewMusic from Bury St Edmunds, England

Gaffa Tape Sandy are a trio from Bury St Edmunds, UK. You know BSE right? British Sugar, Greene King breweries, garage rock/punk? No? Well time to mark in on the map, jump on the A14 (officially the worst road we’ve ever travelled on) and check this lot out.

Their latest track is ‘Beehive’. It’s raucous, punchy and oh so excellently delivered with its intermingling layers of screeching guitars, back and forth vocals and trashed drums. What else did you expect from a quaint Suffolk town?

Sex Pistols – Never Mind The Bollocks

#Flashback Potentially one of the most controversial albums to be released but arguably one of the greatest and certainly highly influential

This weekend marks 40 whole years since we got the debut and in fact only studio album* from punk rock royalty; Sex Pistols (pun absolutely intended) – ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’.

Potentially one of the most controversial albums to be released but arguably one of the greatest and certainly highly influential.

It feels like the world is ready for the kind of shockwaves this caused back in the 70s. But who will bring it!?

*‘The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle’ and ‘Flogging a Dead Horse’ were soundtrack and compilation albums respectively.

Elle Watson – Glued

#NewMusic from London, England

Elle Watson is from Sevenoaks, UK. She likes to write, and when it comes to songs, she writes them very well. Her latest offering, the Clams Casino produced ‘Glued’, builds through its vocals and soundscape in a way that will literally have you stuck to the speakers in anticipation of what’s to come.

It also sees her making her video debut. If you like a good dose of writhing semi-naked bodies coupled with squid tentacles then this is the one for you. We think it’s absolute class, all of it, just class!
