Yes, yes. We’re almost a week into April. But we’ve had Easter in the way, and we were overwhelmed with new music last month. Here’s our top picks:
1. The Go! Team – What D’You Say?
Highlight of the month for us was the brand new Go! Team album The Scene Between. If you haven’t gone out and bought it yet what are you waiting for?
2. IYES – Glow
Glow was originally meant to be out at the tail end of last year, but being pushed back a few months in record company schedules makes it no less majestic.
3. Rockerswitch – Show Me
Rockerswitch’s debut starts off quite lazy and gradually gets more and more spaced out. Great stuff.
4. Mount Bank – Everything is Glass
We love everything on Mount Bank’s Island Life EP but opener Everything is Glass is our favourite with it’s bright synth strings and piano motif.
5. Tigercub – Hold On
Showing a more mature side than seen on their previous releases, Tigercub’s latest demo was so good it got picked up by NME and streamed on their website.
6. Foreign Skin – Enemy
A favourite from their live sets, Foreign Skin has finally shared the beguiling Enemy on their Soundcloud stream
7. Ambassadeurs – Can’t See You
Can’t See You is the first taster from Ambassadeurs next EP. On the strength of what we’ve heard from Ambassaders in the past it’s almost inevitable that we’ll be featuring other tracks from the EP in coming months.
8. Sea Bed – Haunted
Sea Bed have shared a couple of tracks from their upcoming Rosso EP which drops next week. Our pick of the two is the almost garagey Haunted.
9. GAPS – All Me All You
GAPS debut album comes out in May. As well as featuring a couple of their older singles it also includes All Me All You, the first new track taken from “In, Around The Moments”
10. Fools Empire – The Professionals
Last up is The Professionals, the first of three singles coming out in a sequence from Fools Empire. Can’t wait for the other two.
