A brand new selection from our resident pop-picker, Captain Stavros, who says, “These past 2 STM lists have been my favourite to compile in recent memory, we hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing them to you”. Amen, brother!
‘Someone To Love’
Hiding In Plain Sight -Out October 28 via Mexican Summer Records
It took me exactly 5 seconds to fall in love with this song.
‘How To Be’
Out Now via Sad Club Records
Not a bad first single, stripped back and smooth easy listening.
Still Life – Out October 14 via Marathon Artists
Usually when you hear the word leak, it’s a wet mess, but ALASKALASKA keep leaking singles and they’re a hot mess.
‘Space in the Palms’
Earth Visions of Water Spaces Out September 9 via Labrador Records
If you like Holy Motors this Western inspired track will not disappoint. Playing in London on the 16th.
Out 2023…...whatever that means.
I’d heard of Fidlar but never heard anything from Fidlar. Almost certain we’re to old to listen to this but there were elements of Rage Against the Machine in it that were undeniable so, here you go.
Tropical Fuck Storm
Out Now via Joyful Noise
Would love to catch their September 30 gig @ 9294 but will be out of the UK, anyone wanna review it? If their set is anything like this single it’ll be righteous AF.
First a wall, now steps? No complaints here, makes it even easier to get on board with this quiet but absolutely lovely track.
The Soft Moon
Exister Out September 23 via Sacred Bones
Dark wave beats at their most anxiety inducing.
Out Now via Brace Yourself Records
This track is on amphetamines.
The Queen’s Head
‘Tonight I Saved a Life’
If a voice could have swagger, music’s nothing to sneer at either.
‘The Princess Song’
If Audrey Hepburn and Marie Antoinette had a baby whilst on acid.
‘Junk in Orbit’
Out Now via Trickwork
A track that’s out of this world but far from junk.
Peel Dream Magazine
Pad Out October 7 via Tough Love Records
A staccato ditty.
Out Now via Liberation Records
Fun and Poppy, touring now!
Out Now Via Nice Swan Records
Doesn’t take a Poindexter to figure out this is a solid track with great vocals.
Tableu – Out October 7 Via Heavenly Records
I once had a vegetarian sausage eating contest with Henry from the Orielles, low-key brag. High-Key brag the evolution of their music is mind-bending and amazing.
Dawn Richard and Spencer Zahn
Pigments Out October 21 Via Merge Records
Here’s a beautiful instrumental to round-off the list. These past 2 STM lists have been my favourite to compile in recent memory, we hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing them to you.
