Single That Mingle 20220923

  • Published in Columns





The latest single reviews from our London Correspondent, Captain Stavros

Aoife Nessa Frances

‘This Still Life’

Protector out October 28 via Partisan Records

As summer slowly slips away, we thought we’d start the STM list with a song that embodies that transition nicely.


Courtney Marie Andrews

‘These Are The Good Old Days’

Loose Future out October 7 via Fat Possum

Speaking of seasons slipping away, doesn’t mean the good ole days gotta go with ‘em.



‘Reduced Voltage’

Private View out September 30

A mechanical melody from the future.


King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard

‘Ice V’

Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava out now via KGLW

It’s a good track but more importantly these motherfuckers are releasing three albums in October!!!!


Beth Orton 

‘Fractals’ (Feat Alabaster Deplume)

Weather Alive out now Via Partisan Records

One time Alabaster told me a funny anecdote involving a child and a tuba, I think, whilst walking down Holloway Road. The lesson? Listen to anything involving DePlume, you won’t be remiss.



Gold Panda

‘The Work’

The Work out November 11 via City Slang

A hard to describe but uplifting track that sounds sort of like a computer got high in the sun.



‘My Lovely Cat’

Out now via Joyful Noise

As always, get ready to have your mind bent by these lot. You either love ‘em or ya don’t. If it’s the former you’ll appreciate the consistency in their sound carrying through in this gem.


Yumi and the Weather

‘It’s All in my Head’

Out now via  Miohmi Records

It’s all in your head and you’ll have a tough time getting it out once it’s in there.


Princess Chelsea

‘Forever is a Charm’

Everything Is Going To Be Alright out October 8 via Lil’ Chief Records

It’s got a whimsical B52s-ness with a bit of Blondie, anyone else hear it?


Núria Graham

‘Yes It’s Me, The Goldfish’

Ridiculous song-title, ridiculously great lo-fi goodness.




Out Now via City Slang Records

Bit of a clubby anthem vibe, and yet, we were not put off.


The Black Angels

‘Empires Falling’

Wilderness of Mirrors out now via Partisan Records

The album is out now, sell your children to buy it, you will not regret it. It’s the love child of the QOTSA and TEODM.


Bass Drum of Death

‘Say Your Prayers’

Co-Written by Royal Blood’s Mike Kerr, not sure how we feel about that...


Cool Sounds

‘Like That’

Like That Out October 7 via Chapter Music

Cool sounds, now with saxa-ma-phone? Yes please!


The Orielles

‘The Room’

Tableau out October 7 via Heavenly Recordings

A band that met at a house party and always feels like they’re catering to that vibe, nothing wrong with that. Another low-fi gem.


Jade Imagine

‘Instinct That I Wanna Know’

Cold Memory out now via Marathon Artists

Low-fi funky pop, easy to listen to and feel good about.




Blue Skies out now via Fat Possum

Grungy and tough to pin down, a song I’d like to hear playing at my local.

These New South Whales

‘Rotten South’

Channelling some grunge/rock sounds of the mid ’90s, digging it.

Our London correspondent, Captain Stavros has recovered from Covid-19 and brought an amazing bevvy of tunes with him


The Velvet Hands

‘Holiday In My Head’

EP out now

I’ve got a splitting headache so I’ll postpone the holiday in my head, as I can’t think straight. This track’s a no brainer for a good time though.



Crack Cloud

‘Tough Baby’

Tough Baby via Meat Machine Records September 16

Brilliant hook. Expertly constructed track and solid pacing.



Pearl Diver

'Look For The Light'

EP out Now

As drifting and dreamy, as it is ethereal and elatory




'Wet Look'

Big Plans for a Blue World out now

It’s hard to be in 2 places at once but ‘Wet Look’ pulls it off with a relaxed but energetic track.





Open out now

Lo-fi fuzzy and warm all over with a great set of keys.



The Black Angels

'Wilderness of Mirrors'

Wilderness of Mirrors out September 16 via Partisan Records

Transport back to the acid age with this psychedelic excellence.



Indigo Sparke

'Pressure In My Chest'

Hysteria out October 7 via Sacred Bones

An echo in the darkness.



Beth Orton

'Forever Young'

Weather Alive out September 23 via Partisan Records

Not our usual go to but jam but just eerie enough to peak our receptors.



Julie Odell

'Cardinal Feather'

Autumn Eve out September 30 on FrenchKiss Records

A song like a swarm of mosquitos.




'Which Way'

Out Now via The State51 Conspiracy

This pieces reels in on so many influences, if it doesn’t pull you in along with it, let’s face it, you’re deaf.




'Hotel in LA'

New Album out September 9

A dreamy soundscape.



Aoife Nessa Frances

'Way To Say Goodbye'

Protector out October 28 via Partisan Records

Hauntingly Hypnotic.



'Come Apart'

Out Now on Section1

This sounds like the tunes in the ‘90s we couldn’t wait to come on to twist the dial up to 11.




'Mythical Bonds'

Pocket Fantasy out September 30 on Fire Talk Records

Bit Mathrock, bit infection you can’t seem to shake.



Andrew Combs

'Anna Please'

Sundays out August 19 via Loose

A mono tune that almost slipped us by, don’t let it do the same to you.
