I often find myself wanting to post the new single by a band I (and in rare cases, other members of the forum also) like, but they don't fit into the New Music... thread. So I thought I'd start a different one instead of a seperate thread for each track/band. It's not a daily thing, just to use as and when anyone wants to share a new tune.

A couple to get things going, both from bands you all know I'm a big fan of.

The new single from The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Until The Sun Explodes
https://soundcloud.com/fierce-panda-rec ... n-explodes

I've just given their new album a glowing review. I said it wasn't as good as the debut, but better than the second. Shands disagrees and thinks it's pretty much perfect and is the best they've done so far. So we both like it anyway!


The new single from Tennis - Never Work For Free
https://soundcloud.com/tennisinc/never-work-for-free/

Their album Ritual in Repeat is out September 9th (in the US anyway, not sure of UK date). It was produced by Patrick Carney (The Black Keys), Jim Eno (Spoon), and Richard Swift (the Shins).
Initial verdict is that this is a good song, but they've done better. Knowing Tennis, this'll grow on me like mad though. When I first heard them a few years ago I was in two minds as to whether to play them on my radio show. Then they got album of the year...

Belong was shocking in comparison to the debut. Mulder & Flood tried to turn them into the Smashing Pumpkins. Nothing is going to top the bands early material and attitude but at least the new stuff I have heard sounds miles better than what was on Belong already.

PS: Good idea for a thread by the way!

Belong is the third best of the three, but I liked it. Following a debut like that was going to be near impossible, but there were some top tunes on Belong. One or two were below par though. It was slightly patchy. The new one is still growing on me to be honest.

I remember going to their London show where they were promoting it. I have never seen a gig devoid as life such as that. I will give the new album a listen on Trev's favourite music streaming service.

It's streaming for free on the NME website. They gave it 8/10 which was surprising.

Belong is dog shit.

The new one sounds tepid. Will avoid.

They originally released this as a single last year but it's being released again to coincide with their new album out at the start of next month.

The best track is Angelspeech but it's not streaming anywhere. So here's...

The new Tyburn Saints single is pretty huge: https://soundcloud.com/noisyghostpr/tyb ... 57c26a2a60


And the last song that Benjamin Curtis recorded with School Of Seven Bells before he died is streaming over here:

The new one from The Raveonettes is a little bit awesome. Got me very excited for the new album!

The first new song by The Radio Dept. for four years is rather fetching.

Great stuff Kev. Reminds me a little of Screamadelica era Primal Scream.

These lot have properly raised their game. Groovy Uncle started as a solo project by Glenn Prangnell (formerly of The Kravin A's amongst others) backed by a few mates. Then they hooked up with a singer called Suzi Chunk and recorded an album she fronted. Now they've become a full band (including Chunk) and have a new album out now or soon (depending on what format you want) and it starts with a great surf instrumental which sadly isn't online yet. There's also mariachi influenced stuff, lots of brass and strings and '60s pop. Nicely varied and fast becoming one of my favourite albums of the year.

Anyhoo - this is about all you can hear in full at the moment. The single 'Barefoot in The Car Park' which is a top notch mix of garage, soul and surf. Check it!

EDIT: Oooh! Didn't realise the video includes a shot of my review of the single. I'm almost famous!
